Berlin-based DJ, producer and label owner Oliver Deutschmann announces his debut album, ‘Out of the Dark‘. Released on Vidab Records on February 24, at Panorama Bar, Berlin, he is now undertaking a world tour to promote the album.
Oliver runs Vidab with label partner Stephan Hill, together curating an impressive catalogue of quality, raw and analog-infused house and techno. He also created the Falkplatz label as a further outlet for his energetic A&R tendencies.
Firmly established in the underground, Deutschmann has stood behind his unique brand of 4/4 beats for more than a decade; a permanent resident at Panorama Bar for over 4 years with his dubby, pulsing house vibes, old school drums, intense peaks and driving modern dramatics.
Developing a strong signature sound, Oliver translates real emotion and atmosphere into his productions, with bold, crisp and powerful drums, resonant, textural synthlines and a stylish talent for keeping things locked down to hypnotizing effect.
Oliver’s album tour will reach Hong Kong on Friday 12 April 2013 at Bassment Bar. Support from DJs Wendy Wenn and Miko Van Chong, as well as visuals by Casey Anderson of Humdrum Hong Kong. Presented by Deeper Sounds HK.

W2 and Humdrum Hong Kong join forces for our third party in a row to feature outstanding Berlin DJs and performers: First is recent Kompakt signee Dave DK, who has enjoyed longtime DJ residencies at Berlin’s legendary clubs like Tresor and Panorama Bar, as well as Glitterbug, a true electronic artist creating melodic, cinematic live techno with a pile of analogue synthesizers alongside his VJ Ronni Shendar for a complete audio-visual experience! Expect experimental, melodic techno and deep house, rounded out with support from three of Hong Kong’s most “outside-the-box” DJs: Wendy Wenn, Ocean Lam, and Casey Anderson.
DJ & producer Dave DK has been making waves in the world’s electronic music capital for more than a decade. First trying his hand at DJing in 1995 at the tender age of 17, by 1999 the Berliner had earned residency at the Tresor/Globus Club, and later at the legendary Panorama Bar. He takes an open-minded approach to DJing and production, resenting musical limits and avoiding being stuck in one style. “I have a passion for the wide range between house and techno as well as pop music and dancefloor stuff of the early 90′s“, says Dave. With 15 years of producing all kinds of house and techno tracks, his diverse releases have found homes on labels like Mood Music, Television Records, Cadeaux, Playhouse, and most recently, Kompakt. Though he’s elegantly juggling a variety of electronic music to create his own style, his tracks often combine tragic melodies with kickin’ grooves that transform your body into a twisting stampede of electricity, with trademark swing and funk.
Glitterbug is a composer, producer, DJ, artist and curator, standing tall in all musical genres he puts his fingers on. Be it deep techno, remixing, ambient works, writing music for films or audio-visual installations, his musical language always resonates with a score-like, visual approach. Though he considers himself a bit of an outsider to the club world, his musical development can be traced back to the late ‘80s illegal acid parties and Cologne’s experimental techno scene of the 90s, as well as a deep love for House, the sound of early Chicago and the late Detroit. His wide range of sounds and flexible improvisation means he is at home whether performing in a gallery or during his recent club show in Tel Aviv opening for Frankie Knuckles. Glitterbug is always found performing next to his longtime VJ, Ronni Shendar, as they silently communicate and each play off the others’ sounds or images. Ronni Shendar is an Israeli visual artist whose works have been presented in exhibitions and festivals internationally (among them the Festival de Cannes and Jewish Museum Frankfurt) and who recently toured with Gold Panda. Together they create very special music somewhere in the epicenter of club music, film soundtracks and live improvisation.
Supported by W2 founder Wendy Wenn, plus Casey Anderson and Ocean Lam of Humdrum Hong Kong.
