Artist Biography by

Dutchman Hermeljin was still studying business economics part-time when his first brace of 2000 And One records were released on Fierce Ruling Diva’s Lower East Side label in 1989 preceding 1992’s ‘Focus’, which arrived on fellow countryman Stefan Robber’s Eevolute imprint. It was a typical slice of passionate techno. Much of his output remains mysterious, though 100% Pure is him and Sandy, his partner at the Black Beat Record Store. Their tribal techno opus ‘My Life In The Bush’ arrived on his own 100% Pure label. Other monikers include Planet Gong (‘Planet Gong’, a Djax Up Beats dose of Detroit techno, actually recorded two years before release in 1994), Babies From Gong and Edge Of Motion. After just four releases 100% Pure were rewarded with an instalment on Beechwood’s New Electronica series, an album entitled The Lowlands emerging.
