Animal Farm – Cleric + Ryan James Ford
Jorden Hodgetts aka Cleric has had quite the meteoric rise through the Techno scene in a relatiely short time. Now one of the mainstays on Len Faki’s FIGURE label he has also has his own imprint CLERGY to push his own finely tuned and abrasive style of Techno.
During the 1990’s while growing up in Calgary Canada, Ryan James Ford was introduced to electronic music through the local rave and club culture. He began to discover, study, and collect the music he heard at these parties which consisted of a mix of Jungle, UK hardcore, Techno, House, IDM, and ambient.
Fast forward almost two decades later to Berlin, where Ryan and his productions found a home in Marcel Dettmann Records. 2015 saw him make his solo debut on the techno stalwart’s label with an atmospheric and ambient leaning techno EP. The five-tracker easily conveys the rich influence IDM has had on personality and his production style.
