Jeff Samuel first caught our attention when he appeared at Magda's Gel and Weave party at Openair in 2002, and then again with an amazing set at the Mutek picnic in 2004. This guy was pretty far ahead of the curve, playing jacked up weirdo minimal techno long before it really caught on. He's released over 20 singles in the past 7 years, on labels like Dan Bell's 7th City, Karloff, Spectral, Pokerflat, Morris/Audio, Tektite, Frankie, and many more. He has a long-standing relationship with Triple R's Trapez label that has resulted in eight 12"s. He has been remixed by Akufen and Ricardo Villalobos, and gets his tracks charted by practically every big DJ in the techno world (Hawtin, Bug, Wink, Tejada, Mayer, and Vath, just to name a few). Tonight is his debut performance at the Bunker.

Robb first started DJing in the early '80s spinning rap, electro, new wave and the first stages of house music. He got involved in the new york club scene in the late '80s, first as a club kid and promoter then eventually as a DJ. Bouncing back and forth between the new jersey rave scene and nyc club scene, Mr. Robb has spun at hundreds of parties and graced the decks at notable clubs such as the Building, Tunnel, Limelite, the Bank, Sound Factory, Downtime, Canal Room and Shelter. Mr. Robb also worked for and eventually ran the former U.S. hub of world wide dance music distributor InterGroove, leading to a chance meeting and eventual partnership with NYC DJ, Mike Bryant. The two would move on to form the Rhythmic label group and distro, the home of internationally respected labels Berretta Grey, Parotic Music, Thema, Intrinsic Design, Infrastructure, Synewave, Soleil, Casa Del Puente, Robbaudio and many more. Known for his versatility, Mr. Robb has spun everything from deep house to hard techno across the continent and parts abroad always proving to be a master craftsman and getting the job done. We've known and respected Robb for a very long time and it's about time he got back behind the decks at the Bunker.
