1) Detroit producer Len Bartush aka Mutate started making music in the late nineties. His music was released on Development and D-Records both in collaboration with Richie Hawtin, Plus 8 and M-nus records. After several successful releases from 1997 – 2000 the landscape of techno began to change with the popularity of the mp3 format rising. Len became disinterested with the current trends that were arising namely minimal techno. It was during this time that he began to explore new ideas and left old ones behind taking an indefinite break from releasing music.
