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。”

jimpster

Jamie Odell a.k.a. Jimpster and Franc Spangler has been producing, remixing and DJing for the last 20 years and co-running esteemed UK deep house label Freerange Records (voted Best British Label 2007 in DJ Mag) for the last 16 of those.

More recently he set up Delusions Of Grandeur as an outlet for more underground and raw tracks, introducing and helping to establish artists such as 6th Borough Project, Tornado Wallace and Session Victim. His musical upbringing and very early introduction to production (his first release was on influential UK label Jumpin’ & Pumpin’ in 1990 alongside labelmates Future Sound Of London) have helped him forge a sound that is both warm and deep as well as being innovative and club friendly, a style which is naturally reflected in the releases on his labels.

His seminal Jimpster LP “Messages From The Hub” (1997) as well as his early dancefloor orientated Audiomontage 12″  helped establish Jamie as an artist of  merit and he quickly became in regular demand as a remixer (over 85 at the last count!) and coproducer on a wide range of underground projects.  Recent artists to get the Jimpster remix midas touch include Freak Seven, Josh Wink, Photon Inc, Osunlade, Bob Marley, Joris Voorn, Seal, Marc Romboy, Solomun and Kollektiv Turmstrasse. His third Jimpster LP “Amour” was released 7 years ago on Freerange to excellent critical acclaim and appeared in numerous published Top 20 Albums-of-the-Year charts (2006).

Over the past 10 years Jamie has built up a reputation as a highly regarded DJ around the world, having played over 100 gigs last year alone. With an emphasis on the deeper end of electronic house, but not afraid to stray from the path, he retains an old school approach that has seen him booked for gigs as diverse as Fabric (London), Panorama Bar and Watergate (Berlin), Cielo (NYC), Warehouse702 (Tokyo), Zoo Project (Ibiza), D-Edge (Sao Paulo), GOA @ Fabrik (Madrid).

Humdrum Hong Kong’s free monthly house and techno party is back at Bassment Bar with resident DJs Casey Anderson and Ocean Lam, as well as guests Man-l & Natalie!

Man-LBorn in Girona, Spain, Man-L discovered very young his love for music, listening to post punk bands like The Cure, Chameleons, The Sound and Joy Division. It was in the early 90s when he got attracted to electronic music and bands like Nitzer Ebb, Plastikman and Front 242. Making the first steps into own productions, Man-L bought his first equipment and teamed up with Neuron to create first tracks. In 1995 Man-L started DJing in Blau Club, organised raves and hosted Radiophobia, a local radio show.  His passion for music intensified when he began managing record stores, first with DJ Glòria (Lubna Records ) and later his own store called Random Records in his hometown of Girona.  Being a constant member of the electronic music scene in Girona has lead to residencies of several clubs such as Blau (Girona) , Rachdingue (Vilajuiga) and Pachá (Platja d’Aro) and he’s played in different clubs and festivals in Spain, France and Berlin. As a producer Man-L released digital EPs on labels such as Trazable, Soundfate, Buy you sell me , Ahoren Music, Arkitextura, Kina Music, and Aurora Records. Man-L is currently living in Berlin and organizes events under the name of Clam.

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!

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.
