Stacey Pullen


Stacey Pullen, label boss at Blackflag Records, is a pioneering force in the Second Wave of Detroit techno, mentored by the city's iconic trio—Derrick May, Juan Atkins, and Kevin Saunderson. As a world-renowned DJ and producer, he continues to shape the electronic music landscape with his characteristic atmospheric sound, defying predictability and embodying his lifelong commitment to innovation. Stacey's musical journey began at age 9 with the flute in school bands, setting the stage for a lifelong connection to music. Inspired by the mid-1980s Detroit Techno movement and influenced by luminaries like Jeff Mills and Chicago DJs, he and his friends experimented with turntables, laying the foundation for his illustrious DJ career. From his debut gig in 1992, Stacey recognized the challenges and rewards of DJing-- marking the start of his impactful trajectory. The release of his first track was under the moniker “Bango” on Derrick May’s Fragile Records. In 1993 Stacey moved to Amsterdam for more than a year and solidified his status as an innovative and influential figure in the techno landscape. In 1998 he continued his growth trajectory and started Blackflag Recordings featuring the future classic “Sweat”. As a luminary in the music industry, Stacey Pullen continues to grow Blackflag Records: a label of abstract aesthetics– an outlet of free speech, thought, and sound. Stacey’s goal is to hold no boundaries in his approach to music and its art form. With the goal of growth always at the forefront, expect Stacey to push the limits of possibilities in every project he touches. ⁠
