CHEMISTRY PRESENTS……..MOOD MUSIC LABEL SHOWCASE (TWO LEVELS)
An exploration into the deep.......
Chemistry returns to The Civic in January to explore the deeper side of house music, with Germany’s Dave DK. One of the most sought after and popular artists on Sasse’s Berliner label MOODMUSIC. Joining him will be fellow deep house connoisseur and Melbournite Mike Buhl. Quickly making a name for himself releasing on MOODMUSIC and other labels such as Dirt Crew and Haul Music.
Alongside the label representatives will be a strong cast of hand picked local talent including the likes of Carlos Zarete and Yokoo, who are more than familiar and fit in with the Moodmusic sound. Meanwhile upstairs will host two of Sydney’s premier Disco dj’s Kali and the Loin Brothers.
DJ & producer David Krasemann, better known as Dave DK has been making waves in the electronic music scene for a couple of years now, and now starting to emerge as a serious player. Since the early 90's he was fascinated by the upcoming techno movement, which eventually led to his own active initiation. Though he’s elegantly juggling a variety of electronic music to create his own style, in his tracks he often combines tragic melodies with kickin’ grooves that transform your body into a twisting stampede of electricity, with trademark swing and warm funk. The year 2000 can be marked as the first highlight in his career: his debut album "sensory overload“ had been released on Müller Records and there were musical excursions on Cologne’s Television label as well as on the Barcelona based Regular label. Dave is now currently recording for Moodmusic and also on Playhouse (a collaboration with Holger „Smash TV“ Zilske) which brings him even closer to his idea of electronic house tunes. For Dave DK, music is a model of living in which he’s able to enhance his skills in order to realise his vision of modern electronic club and home entertainment – expect more fantastic releases in the very near future.
The past year has seen Mike working a lot harder in the studio. Some collaboration with friend and regularstudio partner Mic Newman, saw the release of "I Know Your Face" on Berlin's Dirt Crew Recordings, and remix for friend J Nitti on Australian label Vinyl Pusher also receiving plays in Berlin by Dj's such as Moodmusic'sDave DK, and full support from many more. More recently Mike has finished a remixes for Australian artists Bertie Blackman, Infusion and Andy Hart.
Over the last few years Mike has played across Australia in some of the countries best parties and festivals not to mentiona two year stint hosting his own shown on premier dance station Kiss FM, Holding residencies with One Six One and The Likes of You.
No stranger to the international circuit either, Mike has travelled the globe to headline parties in Italy, Germany and Paris, and is a regular contributer on the Galaktika Records Podcast series.
