From his earliest demos to his current position as a key figure in the global techno scene, Perc (aka Ali Wells) has taken the established forms of the music he loves and twisted them into something new and fresh. Building up successful relationships with scene-leading labels such as Drumcode, Ovum, Kompakt and CLR whilst unleashing a strong run of releases on his own Perc Trax label has seen Perc’s influence and support grow even further. With each release his sonic experimentation has taken another leap forward without losing sight of the dance floor. As a DJ and live act Perc has covered all of Europe plus multiple tours of USA, Canada, Mexico, South Africa and Japan. This year his rigorous tour continues in support of his latest full length entitled WICKER + STEEL which was released on his own imprint Perc Trax earlier this year.

With releases from himself and artists like Emptyset, Sleeparchive, and Developer, this mix exhibits his current direction.
