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.!

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

HUMDRUM HONG KONG – Underground House and Techno

INTERVIEW WITH HONG KONG’S FINEST DEEP HOUSE COLLECTIVE

 

TDJL: What is Humdrum Hongkong all about? How did you start? Who are the members?

Humdrum Hongkong started in August 2011 after realizing the three of us shared a love of deep house. We are OCEAN LAM (HK), CASEY ANDERSON (USA) and MIKO VAN CHONG (HK). In Hong Kong’s house and techno spectrum, our music is probably on the deepest and most dubby side, with the lowest BPMs and lots of room for weird tracks – but always fun!

 

TDJL: What parties have you done?

We do a monthly party called LOCO at this bar called Bassment. Most of the Hong Kong DJs that play dance music have always played really dark, intense tech house – we support those DJs too, but the Humdrum group came together over house music that’s subtler, deeper, more melodic – we play dark tracks too but we balance it out with pretty songs here and there. Until we started doing our monthlyLOCO night there weren’t many options for that kind of house. Luckily several other organizers started their own parties around the same time – people finally have a few options for house and techno in Hong Kong.

We hear from plenty of Europeans that our music and parties have more in common with little bars in Germany than the glitzy Hong Kong clubs, which has a lot to do with Ocean getting inspiration from touring there a couple times. For example, the room is dark except for a projector showing weird old films on the wall, there’s no bouncer checking out your clothes at the door and entrance to LOCO is free so we can try to bring fresh faces into our scene. We’ve brought DEETRON and I-ROBOTS to Bassment too and have some more international guests on the horizon. And oh, we have SATOSHI FUMI in November.
