All Music Guide:

Cem "Jammin' Unit" Oral is better known as one half of German acid/techno group Air Liquide, but has released more material as a solo artist. Recording (as with his partner Ingmar "Walker" Koch) under a seemingly endless array of pseudonyms -- including Cube 40, Zulutronic, Bionic Skank, G104, and Ultrahigh -- Oral was one of the most prolific artists on the early German acid scene and helped organize Koln's influential Structure label group (which included the Blue, Structure, and DJ Ungle Fever imprints). His more recent work has appeared through Sm:)e, Pharma, Force Inc., and once-popular U.K. techno imprint Rising High, which released his debut full-length as Jammin' Unit (Jammin' Unit Discovers Chemical Dub) in 1995. An active producer and engineer since 1991, Oral produced mainstream house and techno for some of German's most commercial labels before following his distortion-ridden muse in more experimental directions. His nickname Jammin' Unit derives in part from the German pronunciation of Cem ("jam"). [See Also: Zulutronic]
