ET a.k.a Evan Toutz has been working in the underground electronic scene for over seventeen years.He started working for A.T.P Chicago back in 94'. A.T.P. was a hard techno influenced promotional company that specialized in bringing owners of underground record labels, producers, and d.j.'s to the United States from Europe. He helped with promoting and organizing shows with A.T.P. this included st
reet teaming flyers, setting up venues, playing host to the out of area d.j.'s and dj'ing. By 97' the scene had been changing, warehouse parties were outlawed by the city of Chicago and the club scene started becoming more aware and interested in the music he had already been promoting. So he went back to his roots of dj'ing and started playing nationally.
By two thousand and one he thought it was time to develop a new sound as he had played through so many other genres over the past years including Techno, Acid Techno, Trance, Progressive and Deep Prog. So he started looking for more innovative and creative sounds and fell in love with Nu-Breaks and Electro, this opened up a whole new world of music for him, as he got to work in the scene with some of the most unique styles for it's time. But as we all grow older and become wiser , we tend to revert back to the solid fundamentals of mixing what's truly in our hearts so in two thousand and ten ET decided it was time to go back to where it all began with straight up Techno.
He is currently a curator at Satellite Records NYC and helping to to shape the music scene as it evolves today. Curators are the top tastemakers in their genre, recommendations on the top dance music tracks the day of the release!
