DUBBEL DUTCH (RARE EARTH TONES, MIXPAK)
For several years, Brooklyn-based producer Dubbel Dutch (a.k.a Marc Glasser) has acted as a harbinger for American club music, often steps ahead of his peers in discovering and defining the proverbial next sound. As both a producer and DJ, Glasser has shown a willingness to study, reinterpret and re-contextualize disparate sounds, transfixing his skills on a grab bag of genres, ranging from euphoric dancehall to triumphant grime with brief stops to experiment with UK funky, kuduro and Jersey club. A contemporary club shaman, Dubbel Dutch's aim is to inspire transcendence with his 'cosmic tone poems and club anthems from the abyss'.
All in all, Dubbel Dutch has situated himself neatly at the cross-roads of forward-thinking club music, Jamaican dancehall culture, and American pop music consciousness. With a massive, still bubbling single, an extended portfolio of euphoric solo material, and a growing stockpile of club munitions, the coming years look bright for this dance music polyglot.
DOCTOR JEEP (CHAOS CLAN, TUBA, TROUBLE & BASS)
Doctor Jeep is a 26-year old New York native known to most as Andre Lira. While attending college in Boston he quickly gained notoriety as one of the city’s most eclectic young selectors, blending upbeat house and techno with the global sounds of baile funk, dancehall, uk garage, drum & bass and more. With DJ sets mixing the past, present, and future of dance music in some of America’s best clubs, and festival appearances at Outlook, Bass Coast, Bonnaroo, and EDC, he has proven to adapt to any vibe and make it his own style of party.
Production-wise, Jeep’s music has been described as “a style somewhere between the tropical inclinations of Dutty Artz, the grinding 808 electro of Swamp81, and the breakbeat-heavy sound of 90′s UK rave music.” With releases on a wide range of international labels such as NYC’s Trouble & Bass (R.I.P.), Nottingham’s Tumble Audio, and Lisbon’s Enchufada, and support from tastemaking DJs such as Claude VonStroke, Eats Everything, Shy FX, B.Traits, Hannah Wants, Addison Groove, and My Nu Leng to name a few, the future looks bright for this young producer.
