Though his productions haven't been major innovations in the techno scene, Cari Lekebusch has consistently recorded dozens of singles under pseudonyms like Mr. James Barth, Braincell and Vector, as well as his own name. Raised in Stockholm, Lekebusch began collecting records from an early age, and taped his own musical experiments. He began DJing professionally and organized parties around the area during the late '80s.
Several years later, Lekebusch began producing records part-time as well, after assembling his gear to found Hybrid Studios. He recorded for labels like Planet Rhythm, Loop, Plumphouse, R&S, ffrr, Svek, Proper NYC, Drumcode and Harthouse, later forming his own labels -- Hybrid Productions, Audio Pollution, Trainspotters Nightmare -- with Planet Rhythm owner Glen Wilson. Hybrid expanded by the late '90s to become a design company also, and Lekebusch released his first LP in 1996 -- Man of Many Theories as Braincell. Another full-length, Mr. James Barth's Stealin' Music, was released in 1998, and Lekebusch finally released an LP under his own name early the following year. He has also remixed for Claude Young, Steve Stoll, Surgeon and Adam Beyer, among others. ~ John Bush
