Listen to a mix from Karl Meier—or better yet, go see him DJ—and you'll hear a refreshing counterpoint to today's glut of greyscale techno sets. Meier's selections reflect a deep, enduring knowledge of electronic music, one cultivated for many years in the Midwest's underground scene. His sets are encyclopedic explorations through decades of techno and beyond. Quite simply, Meier knows his shit.

Born in upstate New York, Meier spent most of his life in Chicago, first growing up in the western suburbs before moving to the city proper nearly 20 years ago. His credentials, if you want to call them that, are pretty much impeccable. He's worked at key Chicago record shops Reckless, Dave's Records and, most importantly, Gramaphone. Along with countless bookings at smartbar and around Chicago, he's been hosted by leading US techno crews like Interdimensional Transmissions in Detroit and The Bunker in Brooklyn. A crucial international connection occurred in 2002. After meeting Karl O'Connor, AKA Regis, at a rave in Ohio, Meier spent a year in the UK working at his distribution company, Integrale Muzique. More recently, as calls for overseas bookings have increased, he moved to Berlin.
