Head Front Panel
Head Front Panel is fast-paced techno alias of John Heckle, currently focusing on
improvised fully-hardware based live sets.
The project began as a run of ten anonymously produced techno white labels
released in 2014 as a sub label of Tabernacle Records, focusing on techno at it’s
most immediate and energetic, whilst keeping preconceptions of persona under
wraps. A request to perform at the legendary Tresor Club later forced Heckle out of
the shadows to recreate that same aesthetic in a live format.
Though the project is no longer faceless, it still focuses on producing techno at it’s
most primal; raw, fast-paced & spontaneous. Whilst the sets have evolved through
many different set-ups and directions (sometimes show-to-show), the ethos stays the
HFP has remixed Perc, Mark Broom & Mattia Trani and the record series continues.
