Subversive has looked into the depths of the realm of underground techno, and are proud to bring you a very special artist. For those of you who like your sounds stripped down, raw, gritty, dark, druggy and twisted, DVS1 is going to melt your grey matter!
DVS1 is one of the most prominent figures in the Midwest/US dance music landscape today. A Twin Cities DJ favourite since the mid nineties, he continues to move floors with a combination of deep musical knowledge, unparalleled enthusiasm, and a vinyl collection of more than 10,000 records. Headlining at such renown clubs as Fabric and Berghain... they've sat up and taken notice in London and Berlin. We've taken notice and been inspired out here on the wet coast too... and we KNOW you will be moved by DVS1's incredible selections and be amazed by his skills.
DVS1 delivered his first original production in late 2009, on Ben Klock’s Klockworks label, which placed him immediately on a global stage, receiving widespread acclaim from his peers. In the early months of 2010 he followed this up with an EP on Derrick May’s legendary Transmat label, an indicator of the level of quality that he has now established after only two releases. Further music is slated for release on Luke Slater’s Mote Evolver label, Perc Trax, Synewave and a further offering for Klockworks will cement his position among electronic music tastemakers.
This is sure to be an unforgettable night of mindblowing beats!
Rounding out the night are some of Vancouver's finest purveyors of underground sounds: TJ Hooker, Miss Myte and Caleb Fox.
