When attention turns to the Dutch underground electronic music scene, the
spotlight rarely falls on those championing the melodic and emotive potential of
futurist Detroit techno. Yet scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find a new
generation of DJs, producers and label owners dedicated to Motor City style machine
soul, with Jasper Wolff standing front and centre.

Wolff has been a pivotal figure in Amsterdam’s techno underground since the late 
noughties, when he started to become a regular face behind the decks at some of
the Netherlands’ most vital and important techno clubs. Thanks to falling in love with 
underground electronic music at a young age, he already gathered an impressive
 collection of techno, house records and was already being booked to appear at 
sizable festival and clubs.

Wolff is probably best known for his long-running partnership with Maarten 
Mittendorff. Connecting the dots between Detroit techno, intergalactic electro and
the sounds of influential local labels such as Rush Hour and Delsin where they
 released their ‘Tesseract EP’ in 2018, Wolff and Mittendorf quickly became 
residents at the late, great Amsterdam institution Trouw and were regular headline
 attractions at now Defunct Paris hot-spot Concrete. Naturally, the duo also released
 music on the famed French club’s offshoot label, Concrete Music. And now
 continues to be a regular DJ at key Amsterdam venue De School.

Their fame spread further following the 2011 launch of Indigo Aera, a label dedicated 
to showcasing techno music with soul. Wolff continues to co-handle A&R for the 
label, offering up a mixture of new material from the likes of Stephen Brown, Marcel
 Dettmann, Louis Haiman, Private Press as well as previously unheard archive 
material from artists who’ve inspired them (think Kirk Degiorgio, Don Williams, 
Makam, Ø [Phase], Rush Hour co-founder Antal, Sterac and Joris Voorn). Wolff was 
also integral in the launch of Indigo Aera sub-label Æx, an imprint dedicated to 
offering up compilation-style EPs featuring ‘timeless music’ from befriended and 
like-minded artists old and new.

In many ways, Wolff is going back to his roots, delivering solo sets of raw, energetic 
and soul-powered machine music and productions, just as he did during the
 formative years of his career.
