About Paap and Pagano, the men behind Umfeld.

Rotterdam-based producer and musician Jochem Paap is the man behind some of the most remarkable electronic music of the last 15 years. Paap, working under the name Speedy J, was there during the earliest days of Techno. He has released albums of fluid, functional and oftentimes breathtaking electronic music. Paap has found his very own sound, situated between the harsh industrial heritage of his current label novamute/Mute and the synthetic audio-modernism that has always been an important part of his work.

Nowadays, the multi-layered, meticulously precise music of Paap is in a league of it’s own. Over the last decade Speedy J has been peforming on all major music festivals and multimedia events. Among others, Paap has been working with Mike Paradinas, Chris Liebing, George Issakidis and Telco Systems.

Scott Pagano is one of the world’s cutting edge digital artists taking the “music video” into new, unimagined territories. His video works have been described as “experimental graphic narrative short films, revolutionary in their spatial, textural and color exploration.” As filmmaker, motion designer, and spatial reconstructionist, he creates moving image content utilizing shards of architecture, dysfunction, and futurism. With influences ranging from cinema to minimal painting, his work offers a re-envisioned perspective to the graphic stratas that saturate our visual perception. His meticulously constructed abstract artworks push the boundaries of audio-visual composition and process exploration using a dynamic mix of cinematographic and synthetic imagery. His music video and motion art work has been screened in venues ranging from international film festivals to MTV. He has worked with a wide range of notable musicians including BT, Christopher Willits, Funkstorung, Joan Jeanrenaud, Kid606, the Kronos Quartet, Twerk, Richard Devine, and Speedy J.
