Squirt DJ 1997 Mixtape

this tape went through a lot, now enjoy it’s digital resurrection. think it was recorded in ’97.

DVS1 (devious one) aka Zak is undoubtedly one of the most prominent figures in the contemporary American techno landscape. DJ since the early nineties, he begins his career in New York and then relocates to Minneapolis (also known as MPLS) – that other Mid-West techno hub that is usually forgotten in favor of Chicago and Detroit.

A true vinyl head, whose collection of more than 10 000 puts us all to shame, DVS1’s sound is indeed complex, rhythmic and powerful – but the artist refuses to apply reductive categories to the genres he plays, instead describing his music in terms of beats, rhythms, textures and colors. His philosophy is that genre distinctions themselves aren’t important, but the emotional content of the music is. This is evident in his sets, true performances that he approaches the old-fashioned way: armed with bags of wax carefully assembled from his massive collection, Zak never maps out sets ahead of time, instead opting to craft them spontaneously depending on the context they are intended for. This improvisational element makes each of his sets a one-of-a-kind personal expression, never to be repeated again, in which the audience’s mood and energy level evidently play an important role. One constant is the coherence of his sets, always evocative and of consistently of the highest caliber.

Zak took his time to release his first record, since his first EP was only released in 2009 on Ben Klock’s Klockworks. After several stellar releases with their share of support from the OGs of techno, DJ chart love and unforgettable sets across the world and especially in that epicenter they call Berghain, his notoriety now transcends American borders. With fresh releases lined up on Klockworks and Hush (Zak’s own label, about to celebrate 15 years in December) as well as remixes on Rejected and Octopus and last but not least more tours in the US and Europe (April, June, August), one thing is certain: DVS1 is far from having said his last word.

In a welcome change from the routine, DVS1 kindly offered a wide variety of sets for us to post. Some were deep and others were pretty heavy. Here’s our favorite, a awe-inspiring techno session recorded at Frankfurt’s Home Club in March 2011.

somewhat perfect given the unseasonably warm weather we’re enjoying in the uk, the next teshcast is a scorching, sun-soaked mix of charming house, nu-disco and seductive basslines from wolf + lamb man, slow hands.
