Humdrum Hong Kong x Midnight & Co present
Dirt Crew (Break3000) Peter Gijselaers (Berlin)
In the 7 years since the Dirt Crew’s inception they have mastered the art of mixing old school house, new school deep house and minimal funky techno … and then some! Along the way they’ve succeeded in unleashing a flurry of floor stompers that have got people preaching the good news in every town they touch down in.
The “Crew” are well known for an eclectic taste in vinyl material that can only come from true and honest propensity to party. They’ll often throw down sadly forgotten 80’s acid cuts and chuck some old-skool breakbeats on top, just for good measure. They seamlessly weave these elements into their signature sexy, dance floor friendly, beats with an electro-esque pulse that’s sure to keep the heat rising.
What reliably results are packed dance floors at every stop, with revelers gyrating unawares, to what might best be described as the “new” house … and neither them, nor their people would be likely to even mind us calling it that either! … Because it’s working!
They Keep Deep House alive..no compromises made!
Break3000 (Label Owner):
Peter Gijselaers started his music career as bass player in the indie/dance outfit ‘Swains' in 1989,then soon got involved in house and techno production for the belgian ‘KK' label. Between '90 and '94 he released several records as ‘Amazone' on ‘Nova Zembla Records '. His DJ career started in '90 when he began spinning after shows of the ‘Swains' , in this period he already played in lots of clubs across Europe.
From '99 on the music production became more important and he released his first 12” on his own label ‘Casanova'. In 2001 the launch of the ‘Meuse muzique' label saw him as producer take another direction , with his electro/techno tracks he got recognition by Dj's like The hacker , Mick wills and Tiga who included the track ‘sacrifice' on his ‘Dj Kicks' compilation out on ‘!K7'. Later ‘Dr. lektroluv' also licensed the track ‘emolotion' from the latest ‘Meuse muzique' for his compilation. Also the collaboration with the German ‘Pocketgame' label resulted in two releases , a remix for ‘STR' and a compilation contribution.
In 2005 his release on MBF called ‘FLASH’ stormed the charts across Europe within two weeks after its release. After this he released the ‘Lights’ Ep also on MBF Limited in 2006. Collaborations with Adam Kroll resulted in two releases, one for MBF and the other one on Dirt Crew’s own label Players Paradise. Peter also released a classic acid track on mood-Limited early 2006. In the near future he and James will expand their release shedule on their own labels DIRT CREW RECORDINGS and PLAYERS PARADISE and they will do various remixes on labels like GOMMA , 2020 VISION , FREERANGE , BREASTFED , SOMA and CROSSTOWNREBELS.
