Jacek Sienkiewicz is a pioneer of Eastern European independent music scene and Poland's leading electronic music artist, managing Recognition Records since 1999. He was born in 1976 in Warsaw, where he still lives. At the age of 18, started DJing in Warsaw clubs, playing early acid and minimal tracks.
1996 saw his first live performance, and in 1999 first record appeared. Since then Jacek is slowly building his homebase of Recognition Recordings: label devoted to contemporary electronic club music made with heart and soul.
While not busy with Recognition, Jacek managed to release a string of records abroad two albums on Cocoon and singles on Klang, Trapez and WMF Records, as well as numerous remixes.
His live sets played all over the world gained him an audience appreciating his unorthodox approach to the music formerly known as techno. Jacek played all the big events like I Love Techno, Awakenings, Nature One, Love Parade and Detroit (Fuse festival), played dozens of clubs worldwide - but also low-key art events - Transmediale, Mutek...
With winter finally gone, Jacek Sienkiewicz is back in business and there are some very fine releases in the pipeline.
First, his majestic remix of Sutekh's "Dirty Needles" is available for some time already on Stock5.
As for Jacek's Recognition label, out very soon is the 23rd release - Jurek P is no newcomer, but here he delivers four tracks of excellent, stripped down, and truly minimal techno. Jacek comes back to his home label with another stunning release - "Beacon", out this summer, will be backed by a super hot remix by the man of the moment Michel Bauman, under his Soulphiction alias.
And at this moment, Jacek is completing work on his new album - already third - for Frankfurt's Cocoon imprint.
It will be preceded by "My Little Place" - truly amazing EP which surely will draw a lot of attention - his style is identical to none!
