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.

Dirt Crew Interview: Break 3000 [English / 廣東話]

Tell us a bit about yourself and Dirt Crew.

Break3000PeterG

Break 3000 (Peter Gijselaers)

I started DJing in a small bar in my hometown Maastricht around 1991-1992. I also produced my first music together with a friend around that time. My first record is from 1992 as “Amazone”. After that I started doing music as “Break 3000” – mostly trip hop, electro and drum n bass (that’s where the name came from).
So the first Break 3000 things were released in 1999-2000. After doing a lot of electro it slowly changed into more old school house. In 2003 I started Dirt Crew together with James Flavour from Berlin. Since than I have been building up the label, nowadays I only concentrate on the label and my artist.

Your record label is almost ten years old now. How is everything going for Dirt Crew Recordings?

It’s going really well! We always kept true to our own sound and now that’s paying off with the current return of good deep house, we manage to get over the very boring minimal and loopy tech house years pretty well and I am happy that people are more into the true house sound again. So with new artists like Detroit Swindle, Urulu & Steve Huerta, Ben La Desh and soon Waze & Odyssey we will have a killer year in 2013. Furthermore I am planning the first real Tigerskin album and the debut album by Detroit Swindle.

Have you been to Hong Kong or Asia before? Did your Dirt Crew partner, James Flavour, mention anything about DJing in Hong Kong last year?

I have never been to Hong Kong and I’m really looking forward to visit! I have been playing in Asia before, last time I was in Shanghai which was a great experience too! I have also been to Japan twice on tour. It is great to discover a new side of Asia and especially Hong Kong! James Flavour also had a great time, so I am excited!

You vs. James Flavour, who would win in a pillow fight?

Me of course… haha…

Wild Renate

Wild Renate, Berlin

Do you notice any new developments with the music and DJs in Berlin?

Like I said, finally some people are returning to the true house sound. We had some really difficult years in Berlin with only shitty minimal stuff going on, but now you have great clubs that play great music. My favorite club is Wilde Renate, that place is just the perfect club!

What was the first record you bought? 

I am not sure what was the first one, but I think it was “The House of God” by D.H.S., or “Total Confusion” by A Homeboy, A Hippie and A Funky Dread, back in 1990. That’s for the dance music. As far as my very first record, that was in the 80’s and must have been something by Duran Duran or Beastie Boys… or Madonna?? haha…

RRdancelikenobodyswatching

How about the most recent record you bought?

As I don’t buy vinyl anymore, I just can tell you what is my favorite record right now. That’s the latest Roberto Rodriguez on Freerange Records. [listen below]

You’re in the middle of a long DJ set when suddenly you need to go to the toilet. What long song will you play to keep everyone dancing until you come back?

Mike Dunn – “Phreaky MF”. That’s 10 minutes and will keep people busy for sure! 😉

 

Don’t miss Dirt Crew at Midnight & Co. on March 16!
[more info]

Peter請告訴我們一些關於你 Break3000 和 Dirt Crew

我開始在一間小酒吧 DJing 約1991-1992年我想是在我的家鄉 Maastricht/Netherland. 在那個時候已和朋友開始製作音樂。第一張唱片Amazone 在1992年推出,自始後就以 Break3000 推出我的音樂。早期 Break3000 的作品在 1999-2000推出. 由 Electro 慢慢演變成 old school house. 在2003和 James Flavour (Berlin) 組成Dirt Crew. 我現在非常專注在發展我的 label和其下的artist.

你的品牌已經十歲,可以說說過去和未來的 Dirt Crew Recordings?

一路以來都好好, 很高興能夠見到聽歌的人從只有 looping tech house 聽的日子變成很了解和喜歡 true house sound. Dirt Crew 和 Detroit Swindle, Ben Da Desh 等等新的Artist 將會在2013創下更好的成績!

你去過香港嗎?你的 Dirt Crew 拍擋 James Flavour 提過去年在港打過碟的經歷嗎?

我從來沒有到過香港, 這次也是很期待! James 也很享受在香港的時間和經歷

你和 James 枕頭大戰,誰贏?

當然係我 Haha

你有沒有注意到任何在 Berlin 的音樂和 DJ 的新的發展?

就像我說的終於有些人從 minimal 回到真正的 house sound. 有幾年不是那麼好, 但現在有很好的 clubs 播好聽的音樂
我最喜歡的是 Wilde Renate, 它是一間完美的 club.

您買的第一隻唱片是什麼?

不太記得清楚, 應該是 D.H.S. – “The House of God” or A Homeboy or A Hippie and A Funky Dread – “Total Confusion” 1990.
但記得在80年代第一隻非跳舞音樂一定是和 Duran Duran or Beastie boys… or Madonna 有關 ?? haha..
我現在最喜歡的唱片是近期 Roberto Rodriguez – “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching” (Freerange Records).

當你玩緊長 set 但突然需要去洗手間, 你會打隻咩歌 keep 住個 crowd 跳舞直至你回來? 

Mike Dunn – “Phreaky MF” – 10 mins, 確保會繼續跳舞!

Facebook Event | Resident Advisor

In the 9 years since the Dirt Crew’s inception they have mastered the art of mixing old school house, new school deep house and minimal funky techno… and then some! Along the way they’ve succeeded in unleashing a flurry of floor stompers that have got people preaching the good news in every town they touch down in.

The “Crew” are well known for an eclectic taste in vinyl material that can only come from true and honest propensity to party. They’ll often throw down sadly forgotten 80’s acid cuts and chuck some old-skool breakbeats on top, just for good measure. They seamlessly weave these elements into their signature sexy, dance floor friendly, beats with an electro-esque pulse that’s sure to keep the heat rising. They keep Deep House alive… no compromises made!

Humdrum and Midnight & Co. are proud to welcome Peter Gyselaers (the Dutch half of Berlin’s Dirt Crew) to Hong Kong’s glowing club scene.

PeterGijselaers

Peter Gijselaers started his music career as bass player in the indie/dance outfit ‘Swains‘ in 1989, then soon got involved in house and techno production for the Belgian ‘KK’ label. Between ’90 and ’94 he released several records as ‘Amazone‘ on ‘Nova Zembla Records ‘. His DJ career started in ’90 when he began spinning after shows of the ‘Swains’ , in this period he already played in lots of clubs across Europe.

From ’99 on his music production took priority and he released his first 12” on his own label ‘Casanova‘. In 2001 the launch of the ‘Meuse muzique’ label saw him as producer take another direction , with his electro/techno tracks he got recognition by DJ’s like The Hacker, Mick Wills, Dr. Lektroluv and Tiga who included the track ‘Sacrifice‘ on his ‘DJ Kicks‘ compilation out on ‘!K7‘.

In 2005 his release on MBF called ‘Flash’ stormed the charts across Europe within two weeks after its release. In the years since, Peter and James Flavour have been releasing music together as Dirt Crew on top record labels like Gomma, 2020 Vision, Freerange, Breastfed, Soma, and Crosstown Rebels. Since the 2004 launch of their label Dirt Crew Recordings, they’ve hosted an impressive discography with artists like Tigerskin, Adultnapper, Ben La Desh, Till Von Sein, Mano Le Tough and Detroit Swindle.

It’s clear then that the Dirt Crew are tastemakers and world class DJs not to be missed! Be ready this March 16th for Break 3000’s journey into deep dirty house at Midnight & Co.!

[All Day I Dream]
A duo who’ve produced some forward-thinking dancefloor material, and the strings on this track get me every time.

Ry Cumin & Frank Wiedermann
Howling (Âme Remix)
[Innervisions]
I don’t usually go for big vocal tracks, but there’s something quite stirring about this guy’s singing – plus the track comes to a pretty powerful conclusion.

Barnt
Geffen
[Cómeme]
It was always fun watching the crowd when dropping this weird little number. Geffen is really nothing more than a beat and a fun little octave-driven synth line, but it drove people crazy every single time.

Maetrik
The Poem
[Ellum Audio]
I still prefer the stuff Eric Estornel produces as Maetrik over his Maceo Plex guise, and this track really sums up why: rib-shaking beats and simple but devastating basslines. Massive.

Ian Pooley
CompuRhythm (Dixon 4/4 Treatment)
[Innervisions]
Have such good memories of catching Dixon at Barcelona in Sonar this year, and he’s fast become one of my favourites. This is his best remix yet, maybe after the 2011 Singing rerubs.
