MARCELLUS PITTMANN (Dekmantel – USA)
Pittman has collaborated with virtually everyone worth their salt in contemporary Detroit, first coming to prominence with a bunch of Theo Parrish co-productions released across two 12″s on Parrish’s Sound Signature label in 1999 and 2002. His Midwestern Advocates EP Part One is a modern classic, the austerely jacking B-side ‘Chicago Nights’ simply devastating, while this year’s Loneliness ‘Leave Me Alone’ / ‘Razz ’09′ has a more obviously Detroit beatdown flavour.
BEYOND [bee-ond, bih-yond]
BEYOND is a regular concept of events hosted by Pierre, Walrus, Kid Strike and Handless DJ. The idea is to highlight the other side of clubbing, rooting inspiration from the legends of the past to the most exciting acts of today. Integrity, avant garde and expectations are the key words. No genre boundaries, evolving on the edge of 30 years of electronic knowlegde we want to challenge the general idea of club consumption to enhance a wider sound specter and artists who simply care.
