DVS1 (Hush / Klockworks)
Bill Patrick (Supplement Facts)
A huge shout to everyone who came down to see Marcel Fengler tear up Basing House for our December party – by far the best event we’ve ever done.
Make Me are moving things forward in a big way in 2012 and keeping up the lineup pressure with some of the most respected names in underground club music.
Kicking off the year we have two of North America’s finest laying down the beats:
DVS1 – Hush, Klockworks
DVS1’s meteoric rise over the past few years has been nothing short of astonishing. The shift from local hero DJ/producer/promoter in the US mid-west to solo releases on Ben Klock’s Klockworks imprint and extended sets at Berghain is quite a transition, but one that is richly deserved.
His DJ philosophy is that genre distinctions aren’t important—the emotional content of the music is. This focus is readily apparent in the way he moves crowds—both literally and figuratively by fusing together sounds that paint coherent, evocative, and powerful moods that are always appropriate for the time and place he is playing.
We’ll be giving Zak 3 hours on the Basing House Funktion 1 rig to show us what all the fuss is about.
Bill Patrick – Supplement Facts
This is a man who knows how to move a dancefloor.
After a long stint in New York playing at such seminal venues as The Limelight, Vinyl and Arc, Bill is finally beginning to build the international reputation he so richly deserves.
We first saw him play back in August in a strip club in Bethnal Green. Quite the introduction, and without doubt it was one of the most accomplished sets that we saw in the whole of 2011. House, techno, rnb, whatever it was the place was going off for the duration.
