PostSubject: VECTOR LOVERS   Fri Mar 05, 2010 8:57 pm


Born in 1969 in Reading, UK, Martin Wheeler started recording in his teens, influenced by the sounds of Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode and Suicide. A ‘geek’ before the term was in common use, Wheeler became a computer games designer at 16 and went on to develop over 25 titles for ZX Spectrum, Atari ST, PC, Nintentdo SNES and Gameboy before returning to music with the release of his first single as Vector Lovers in 2003. The split 7” featuring the now classic ‘Tokyo Glitterati’ on the innovative Static Caravan label won support from leftfield DJs the world over, including John Peel and Mute Records founder Daniel Miller. The follow-up EP ‘Roboto Ashido Funk’ (self-released on his Iwari micro imprint) featured on the coverdiscs of DJ magazine and Jockey Slut, prompting offers from major and indie labels and culminating in Vector Lovers signing to seminal Glasgow techno label, Soma Records in 2004.

Since then, Wheeler has recorded three albums and played venues across Europe, including Fabric, Arena Berlin, The Loft, 100 Club, Indigo (Istanbul), The Sugar Factory, Le Triptyque, Club 69, Pressure @ The Arches, The Sub-Club, T in The Park, Connect Festival, Lattitude Festival, Bloc Weekend, Synch Festival, Panoptica, Festival Polmadi (Ljubliana) and Plektrum (Tallin).

Remixing and production work has seen collaborations with artists as diverse as Tracey Thorn, Ladytron, Husky Rescue, Lillian Hak, Alex Smoke, Diefenbach, Tim Wright, The Black Dog, Slam, Funk D’Void, Mark Henning, Transparent Sound, Justine Electra and My Robot Friend. From derelict neon soundscapes to future robot funk, Vector Lovers’ fusion of deep, quirky electro and precise melodic intuition has provided memorable soundtracks for television, film and advertising.

In March 2008 Vector Lovers designed the DR1 Dr Drone synthesizer, released to growing acclaim from electronic producers. Now working on a fourth album, Martin spends most of his time recording at home in Berlin where he lives with his wife and two children above a vintage radio shop.
