LOCAL HEROES #024 BY DANSOR

4/29/2019

Dansor is fast cementing herself as one of Holland’s hotly tipped electronic music artists. Founder of Comport Records, the Hungarian-born Producer and Media Technologist is also the former winner of Pete Tong’s Bedroom Bedlam and Dave Clarke’s ADE Demolition panel. An established Live Act as well as a DJ, Dansor’s performances have graced Sziget Festival, Ozora Festival, Balaton Sound, not to mention an inventive appearance at ADE where she performed her debut album ‘Theory Of Love’ live alongside jazz musicians, or her interactive AV performance during TEDx with a sensor jacket and Ewa Pepper violinist.

Born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, she grew up listening to Duran Duran, Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk before moving to the Netherlands in 1997 - a switch that would play a significant role in intensifying her relationship with all things house and techno. Throwing herself into the scene, she found home in the work of electronic acts such as Art Of Noise, Leftfield, Front 242 and clubs such as “Feketelyuk” (Black Hole) and “Zöldség-Gyümölcs” (Fruits and Vegetables), not to mention the acid house parties that sprung up during the time.

Acquiring a taste for illegal raves in her home of Budapest, she later left due to the country’s economic situation to make her way to the Netherlands in search of a new lease of life. It was here where she acquired her first set of decks and also made friends with Dutch producer Georgio Schultz who pushed her towards installing Cubase on her Atari computer. She would later establish her ‘WomenWaves’ parties in her adopted town of Haarlem, followed by ‘Budapest Delight’, 'BLD', 'HOTCHPOTCH' and 'BLEND' events in Amsterdam.

The "DANSOR" project was born during the final semester of her Media Technology studies in the ‘00s. A live act that could be controlled without the need to stand behind a laptop, it didn’t immediately set pulses racing - with even the lady herself admitting that it was way ahead of its time. What it did prove beyond any doubt, however, is that Dansor is a producer not intent on taking the traditional route. . Such avant-garde approaches course throughout her productions too. Unsurprisingly, then, they’ve been picked up by a host of seminal worldly imprints including Little Mountain, This Is Recordings, Nervous Records and Tulipa. This is replicated in similar vogue via her Comport Records that also plays host to her intricate sound by incorporating elements from house to techno to dub, jazz/funk, italo disco, new wave and indie.

Ahead of her debut album ‘Theory Of Love’, Dansor has released a selection of singles from the long player, including remixes from Channel X's Jiggler, Animal Picnic, Thomas Gandey, Zoe Xenia, Sezer Uysal, Just Her and Natural Flow. These have received support from the likes of DJ Mag, Complex, Electronic Groove, Ibiza Voice, When We Dip, 8 day Montreal and her remix of Digitaria's ‘Useless Fantasies’ even picked up support from Rolling Stone.

Dropping her debut album at the start of 2016, ‘Theory of Love’ garnered a glowing print review in DJ Mag, radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music’s Nemone, John Digweed and Jonty Skrufff, not to mention topping the Beatport charts with the release hitting no.1 in Breaks, no.14 Electronica, no.18 Deep House, no.23 in the Tech House - resulting in an overall Top 100 appearance at no.93. Now, with her live set evolving and Comport Records maturing, 2019 looks to be the most propitious year yet for this bright and promising individual.

EPISODE #090 BY DAVID SILVER

4/02/2019

At an early age, David Silver got to know the pleasure of making people dance. His love for everything house and techno came with listening to recordings from friends in Italy’s flourishing club scene, and his passion is reflected in his ever growing record collection. His never-ending digging sessions for vinyl are a reflection of a broad interest in music. All sections of the record shop are turned upside down when David visits. And what he takes home is a wide selection of records from the past fifty years.

David Silver’s style ranges from jazz to techno, with funk and disco being combined with classic sounding house. His style leans on Detroit’s tradition of combining various musical forms with raw electronic drum machines. The combination of classic sounding house, raw funk and uplifting disco proved to be a deadly cocktail for Sisyphos’s Wintergarten, where he regularly gets people dancing on the bar. Furthermore, his uptempo and energetic sound embraces the timeless sounds of Roland drum machines and the funky grit of MPC-sampled jazz & disco.

Nowadays, he is an in demand DJ across Europe. Playing a humble selection of clubs and festivals where he brings his weighty records bag filled with timeless sounds. Besides DJing, he regularly works on creating his own tracks either solo or as ‘Complementary Opposites’ and has seen releases on Sisyphon, One Step Back Ahead, First Music and recently a co-production with Luca Olivotto for Endless Music.

Moreover, he heads the vinyl only outlet Autarchy Records and manages the Sisyphon label. This plus more projects will keep his schedule filled.
