L.A.'s own techno hero, John Tejada, now has the world's most renowned techno label to call home.

Germany's Kompakt announced this week that it has signed the spinner and producer from Sherman Oaks, with a single, "Unstable Condition" (a label press release compares it to Aphex Twin's classic "Polygon Window"), due May 2 and an album, Parabolas, expected June 20:

Tejada, who helped hail the return of techno to Los Angeles in the last five years or so, also has his own, L.A.-based, singles-oriented label, Palette.

Congrats, John.
