Dixon (Innervisions,Berlin ) www.innercityvisions.com
When Dixon entered the Berlin club circuit in the early 90's, he established his name on the strength of DJing. Back then, confidence or experience based on putting out mixes in the internet did not matter as much as it does now. You had to do your practice, of course, but when your thing was good and tight enough to take it to the clubs, there were opportunities to do so. But those opportunities meant responsibilities. A residency did not mean playing the same club every once in a while, it meant playing the same club every week. The crowd did not consist of people that wander in and out of club nights and its guest DJs as the weekly hype commanded them, it consisted of people which headed straight to a certain club night because they were sure its resident DJ would deliver the goods this week as he did last week, and the next weeks to come. As long as that happened, there was no need to move on. You made your decision to return out of good experience and you stuck to it as long as it lasted.
In such a context, there is no way to learn quicker how to become a very good DJ than by making people dance throughout a set that lasts the whole night, on a very regular basis. If you can't hold the crowd for hours then, you fall through. It is learning by doing, the hard way. Dixon did not only learn very quickly, he loved every moment of it. Starting out low, slow, unfolding the flow, working towards a peak, then working towards another, turning up, turning down, to find the exact point from which to swing moods, to find the perfect way to end what should be a lasting experience. Once you passed your exams in the night club school of that era with distinction, you can rely on it forevermore, and Dixon surely did. His residencies then and now are obviously schooled on the stylistic and technical versatility and skills, attitude, stamina and experience based on countless nights honing ways to direct a loyal crowd on the dance floor at will. Hours spent to find and select the right music to achieve the levels of intensity necessary, hours spent to plan the imminent night's structure and proceedings, and then hours spent putting it into action. Dixon was always more than happy to spend this much time on his nights, because he takes his profession seriously. It is exactly what matters most to him. He has always been and he always will be a DJ first. This is the mission he embarked on, no end in sight.
Lance DeSardi (Bang The Box, Lazy Daze, Classic, OM)
Not willing to claim any one dance genre as his ?style?, Lance DeSardi's musical output teeters somewhere between the deeper sides of house and techno. His music embraces all of his influences from over the years to the fullest, creating a unique
juxtaposition of styles that anyone with discerning taste can get behind. He runs a label and coinciding club/underground night called Bang the Box, has a slew of new releases set to go for the year, and even does mix-down and pre-mastering work out of his home base studio, Drums & Wires. Some of his Clients include Visionquest, Planet E, and Crosstown Rebels. With house music back in the dance world?s favor, 2011 is shaping up to be quite a year for one of SF?s finest.
