-ABE DUQUE (abeduque.net)
When Carlos Abraham Duque Alcivar joined the United States Marine Corps, he spent four months in boot camp at Parris Island, in South Carolina - the facility made famous by Stanley Kubrick’s movie Full Metal Jacket.
“My Marine days really shaped my character, it made me a tougher dude and more resilient to failure,” says Alcivar otherwise known as the American DJ and producer Abe Duque [a].
“Boot camp was hellish. I was a bit chunky back then, so they put me in this platoon with all the fat guys. It was a special platoon called PCP, or Pork Chop Platoon. We trained all day, every day. Other platoons, they did other stuff like shoot guns, but we just woke up at 4am and worked out all day.
“It was miserable. I never thought I’d get out of there. It was hell on Earth,” he says, laughing. From the photos and background, you’d expect Alcivar to be a hard nut to crack, but he’s chatty and full of chuckles.
Alcivar eventually left the Marines after four years and became a music producer. He went from shooting M16s to putting out house records. His drill instructor must be pissed, but he took a few things with him from his Marine days. “My first release was in 1989,” he says. “But it was only after 15 years of trying that I saw real success. I guess I kept coming back for more pain, that was something I might have learnt in the Marines.”
Some would call it insanity - to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results, but Abe Duque, he would call it discipline, resilience, and self-belief. Once a Marine, always a Marine.
With his third studio album ‘Don’t Be So Mean’ having dropped recently, and its darker dancefloor moments filtering their way across clubland’s underbelly we felt it was time to salute Abe Duque.

"One of the most interesting lessons I have learned is that whoever is behind the decks in a club has total control over the moods of each person in the room. So how I then choose to play will, in turn, affect everybody else's mood. Quite a powerful responsibility, and one which must be treated with respect."
