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。”

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.

FREE ENTRY

Humdrum is back at Bassment with our first FREE party together since August!
Deep house and techno all night from DJs Ocean Lam, Casey Anderson, and special guest Devlar.

After an exciting schedule that included our first Humdrum showcase abroad, a headlining DJ slot at Hong Kong’s festival of the year, and supporting resident DJs of world class clubs [from Panorama Bar to Womb Tokyo] during their stops in Hong Kong, Ocean and Casey are happy to go back to the bass-ics at our home, Bassment! Even more, we’re thrilled to introduce HK to our favorite Macau DJ, Devlar.

Devlar PromoOriginally from the USA, Devlar (Flipside) is a maestro of the Macanese underground techno scene, which 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 casinos. While HongKongers 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.
