RyanEliottportrait

Ryan Elliott has a long-established reputation as one of the Detroit area’s most adept techno DJs. Releasing his first tracks in 2007 with Ann Arbor, Michigan‘s Ghostly International label, he soon became half the A&R management on its techno offshoot Spectral Sound (alongside its flagship artist Matthew Dear). After over a decade of working at the local Ford Motor Company while increasingly playing to weekend crowds at clubs and festivals around the world — from New York’s Guggenheim Museum to Barcelona’s Sonar —  this “DJ’s DJ” moved his meticulous ear and bottomless record collection to Berlin in 2009 and soon secured a residency at the city’s most renowned club mecca, alternating between techno at Berghain and house at Panoramabar each month.

Influenced by his hometown staples like Axis, Purpose Maker, M-Plant, Underground Resistance, along with international labels like Perlon, Playhouse, and early Kompakt, Ryan Elliott’s sound remains unchanged even after his relocation: bassline-driven techno and house reduced to their essences, thoughtfully calibrated to drive crowds out of their minds. “Berlin and Detroit may not look the same, but they feel the same,” he says. “The connection isn’t just in the music, but also in both cities’ rough edges and honest hearts.”

Ryan Elliott 一位早已成為在美國Detroit 譽為最拿手的Techno DJ之一。於2007年,他同 Ann Arbor 在 Michigan`s Ghostly International label 發行第一首歌,接著很快就成了Spectral Sound 其中一個 A&R management 的成員,而另一位就是 Matthew Dear。由New York’s Guggenheim Museum 至到Barcelona’s Sonar Festival, 每到週末都在世界各地的不同的 Clubs 打碟。

Berghain

Berghain

2009年, 連同他多不勝數的黑膠珍藏搬遷到 Berlin , 極速成為殿堂級的 Berghain & Panorama Bar 駐場DJ 交替著他獨特, 深不見底的 Techno & House!

Ryan 的音樂受著家鄉英雄 Jeff Mills, Robert Hood 和 Mike Banks (Mad Mike) ,Label 如 Perlon, Playhouse 和早期的 Kompakt 影響,即使在他的搬遷後, 聲音保持不變! 仍然係以 Bassline 為主的 Techno 和 House 的幫派.

他說:“Berlin 和 Detroit 可能不會看起來是一樣的,但他們有同樣的感覺,”。“ 連接的不僅僅在音樂, 還有在這兩個城市的粗糙邊緣感覺和誠實的心。”

Devlar PromoOriginally from the USA, Devlar is a maestro of Macau‘s underground techno scene, where he has called home for 10 years. Inspired by sounds in Sao Paulo and Berlin, his sophisticated tech house and ear for the interesting have made him a go-to support DJ when the likes of Meat Katie, Layo & Bushwacka or 2000 & One make the rounds at the city’s casinos. While Hong Kongers may recognize him from the Secret Circus events, Devlar’s also toured to far out destinations like Guatemala and Brazil, and his gig history completely reflects the surreal glitz and seedy underground of Macau: from the Playboy Club and House of Dancing Water to Chiang Mai’s “THC Club“… this is gonna be one of those sultry, sinful ones!

Devlar is joined by Humdrum Hong Kong residents Casey Anderson and Ocean Lam. Expect deep house and techno, a much-loved visual show, a relaxing outdoor terrace and unpretentious music lovers dancing til tomorrow.

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.

davedkDJ & 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.

The next installment of Humdrum Hong Kong‘s free late-night party of cutting edge deep house and techno at Bassment features Berlin‘s Paulo, co-founder of Airdrop Records and A&R Manager of the legendary Tresor-Berlin label.

In the miraculous world of Airdrop Records co-founder Paulo, where DJing, restless label work and partying all morph into one, everything is much more than what it seems. Only here, bad road accidents result in amazing music output and other even more wondrous creations that make this planet a better place to live on.

Growing up in France, Paulo was way too young to get into clubs when he was starting to feel the electronic pulses of a restless generation ready to change the course of things. After having had the pleasure to select and compile jazz and blues records with his late father, he got infected with the electronic virus a couple years later when his older brother returned from the States with anything from early Tribal America records to Gemini’s 1997In Neutral” EP.

Crossing the ocean at the age of 18, he bumped into the crazy ass duo Soul Clap and his friend Henry within the first weeks of being there. Before anybody knew what was going on, they were all throwing parties together every Tuesday which were aptly named Airdrop as they were dropping serious electronic sounds onto some clueless students, lifting them into higher spheres of (un-)consciousness.

But while Paulo’s head floats in the air and his body rotates behind the turntables, his feet are steadily rooted in reality, enabling his expert musical knowledge to unfold beyond the short-lived nocturnal moments. His experience as a label-head got some prestigious labels to employ him, getting Paulo to manage the logistics of the !K7 Label Group and currently give a new artistic direction to Tresor Records, two of Berlin’s seminal labels.

FREE ENTRY for some underground sounds from Berlin this Friday, March 1. Get ready for an awesome night!

Supported by Humdrum Hong Kong resident DJs Casey Anderson & Ocean Lam.

Small & Tall‘s new spin off party extraSMALL launches on Friday 23rd November. We are returning to our original ethos of ‘big sounds in small spaces’ it is going to be an occasional series of pop-up parties where we can showcase a more niche, experimental dance music sound.

The opening night of extraSMALL will take place at our spiritual home Bassment, where the small&TALL journey began.

First up is a live set from Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts. An artist who is hard to pigeonhole, Guillaume Coutu-Dumont’s distinctive sound fuses the sultry allure of jazz, the unquestioned groove of house, and the propulsion of techno to deliver something entirely new, deep and danceable. He will be taking us on a musical journey with a marathon live set.

Joining Guillaume will be small&TALL’s smallest resident, Wendy Wenn, and special guest Casey Anderson from Humdrum Hong Kong. Expect the unexpected!”
