Working under many labels and twice as many pseudonyms, Thomas P. Heckmann has kept true to traditional techno methods and resources. Heckmann was one of the first in his native land of Germany to explore a style of techno that is comparable with early Underground Resistance and +8 recordings. Thomas' tracks are strong with sounds that originate from the 303 and use of the four/four rhythm. His most well-known contributions come from working with his own label, Trope Records, Force Inc., and his releases under the names Drax and Age. He has also recorded under the names Exit 100, Skydiver, Spectral Emotions, and Purple Plejade -- to name a few.
