KONTRAST presents PETER HORREVORTS (BEEF Records, Global Underground) Saturday 11th September

Peter Horrevorts (BEEF Records, Global Underground)

Peter Horrevorts was born in 1983 in a small village called Hilvarenbeek in the south of Holland. In his early youth, Peter's creativity was focused on drawing, painting and sculpting. His passion for music was inspired by the wide variety of sounds played at home by his music loving mother. His interest developed further when he encountered the electronic sounds of the late 80's and amongst his favourite artists and bands were Depeche Mode, New Order, Yello, Ultravox and also Michael Jackson.

At the beginning of the 90's the then 'unusual' style of techno captured his imagination and he realised that here was a sound he'd been searching for. The futuristic themes matched his interests in science fiction and the rhythmic structures of techno, unlike any other music before, made him feel like dancing.

He was fascinated by all of the new, previously unheard sounds and was keen to understand how to create them. Soon, he'd bought his own computer, learned about music programs and eagerly set about making his own music. After years of experimentation and a long search for his own sound, he made his first digital release on Sublogic Corporation, a digital record label.

The positive reaction to the release, encouraged him to circulate a few demo’s and within 2 weeks he'd signed his first contract with Dj Misjah’s X-Trax Records.

In 2003 he released his first 12” record; “Sweets EP” on X-trax under his guise “Forcesupreme”. His unique, bombastic and energetic style was highly appreciated by DJ’s like Marco Carola, Carl Cox and Adam Beyer.

Currently, the young talent has records released through Gem, Global Underground, Rennaisance, X-trax and Beef and has remixed work from artists such as Ferry Corsten, Dj Misjah and Melvin Reese. A pretty impressive discography for a guy of his years.

“Peter Horrevorts is one of those rare artists who are NOT constantly flooding the market with hundreds of digital releases. Instead of that he is focusing on a real quality output. Pretty much every single track and remix that Peter does is getting hand picket by the worlds biggest DJs and licensed for respected compilation series on labels such as Ministry Of Sound, Global Underground and Renaissance.

His latest remix work for Beef records compilation Prime Cuts III reached top chart positions on Beatport and chart support from Fedde Le Grand and Alex Kenji. Remix of Steve Ward for Chameleon Recordings is getting hammered by Nick Warren, Christian Smith and Umek. Even Carl Cox is aware of this talent and gave Peter a chance to perform live on the Carl Cox Global radio show.”

Dj Schwa (Shades Of Gray, Beef records)

Michal Ruzicka, aka DJ Schwa, is the man behind BEEF records and electronic duo Shades Of Gray. Michal became engaged in music thanks to his father, who is also a musician himself as well as an owner of a famous recording studio in Prague – ORM. At the young age, dance music caught his attention mainly through Radio 1. Around this time he tried to mix his first tracks. In 2000 he started performing publicly. In 2002, Michal started his weekly resident night in Prague at Cross Club and since 2003 he has been working as a sound engineer at ORM studio in Prague. In 2004 Michal, along with DJ Slater, started working on the first Czech progressive label and by the end of the year “Tribal Vision Records” was born.

At the end of 2005, Schwa rapidly changed his style and the idea of an innovative techno/house label became reality and thus established the foundation for “BEEF Records.” BEEF records has since then been slowly establishing itself as one of the hottest labels on the tech/house scene with release from respected artists such as Robert Babicz, Deepchild, Kreon, Jet Project, Arnaud Le Texier, Shur-i-kan, Pezzner, Mike Monday…

Schwa’s sets are not strictly one style oriented; he combines sounds that progressively flow from deeper shades of house to techno rhythms. Schwa’s unique mixing and track selection has resulted in a particularly massive following throughout Japan, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, France, Austria, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Slovakia and Australia. Schwa has performed at huge international festivals such as “Open Air Field” (Czech Republic), “Parihaka” (New Zealand), “No Mans Land Festival” (Hungary), “Rainbow Serpent” (Australia), “Earthcore Carnival” (Australia), Good Vibrations (Australia) and while touring Asia Michal had a chance to perform at the biggest club in Japan – Ageha.

Schwa supported Djs/projects such as: Gui Boratto, Jimpster, Minilogue, Extrawelt, D-Nox, Propellerheads, Dj T, Jamie Jones, Ripperton, Alex Smoke, Antix, Orbital, Chemical brothers, Steve Angello, Deepchild, Kasey Taylor, Future Sounds of London, System 7, Paul Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Heidi, Tim Green and many more.

JML (Vibrating Balance Records)

JML aka Jason Milton Lowe from Sydney, Australia, has been DJing for almost 15 years in Europe, Japan and the East coast of Australia. His sound has been best described as deep, warm and smooth with lots of emotion. Jason is the head honcho of progressive, tech and deep house label Vibrating Balance. With successful artists and releases from the likes of Deadmau5, Shiloh, Flow and Zeo, Peter Horrevorts and Shades of Gray the label has been a favorite by many DJ's.

JML has produced a string of successful remixes for artists like Presslaboys, Flow & Zeo and Brisker & Magitman. His own Into The Wild EP featured a massive Peter Horrevorts remix which has been licensed for Beef records CD compilation Prime Cuts 3 and reached number 4 on the deep house chart on Beatport. JML releases have been supported by Mark Knight, Hernan Catteneo, Jim Rivers, Kasey Taylor, Groove Armada, Paul Okenfold, Dave Seaman, Pena, Christian Smith, D-Nox and many more.

So how did it all begin?

My older brother was heavily into house so I was exposed to it at an early age. It was much less accessible at the time. It was like nothing I'd ever heard before and found house music so cool and exiting. I started collecting records shortly after.

What was the first club you ever played at?

I played at dozens of raves and smaller parties but the first bigger club would have to be Kink at the Arthouse or Together at Home.

Out of all the music you have what track never fails?

I believe every track I buy serves a purpose. They are all tools and I use them accordingly forever finding different ways they work and react together "the right Kontrast ;)" I'd like to think that I only ever drop tracks that are going to work. That's never failed me.

What's your favourite track of all time?

Too many to mention! So much music being made by so many talented producers. Now more than ever!

Funniest thing that's ever happened to you while djing?

That would have to be taking the record of the rong deck playing to a packed moulin rouge, as you could expect the music stopped for what would have to have been the longest 45 seconds of my life. Boy was my face red!

Djs you rate?

Simon Caldwell
Robbie Lowe
Jay not so Smalls
Pete DBR
Sydney is awesome.

How is the scene at the moment?

This is the most exciting time for Techno in Sydney. Considering we're in one of sydneys longest and coldest winters. Very strong! Lots of new exciting things happening in and about town and heaps of cool people getting out there and supporting these parties week after week!

When the partying is over how do you like to chill out?

Watching chick flicks with my lover x x x.

What advice would you give any up and comming dj?

Get out there and support the djs you enjoy and nights you want to play at. Stay right away from discussion boards (nothing cool about being a music nerd) Try find a unique style or sound that is unique to you and speak with your feet!

KONTRAST & Golden Cage present "Confession"


So how did it all begin?

I began tinkering with electronic music about 4 years ago when I enrolled at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney as an undergrad at the tender age of 32!! I was made redundant from my job in the Investment Banking industry about 2 years prior and when I could not find employment due to market conditions at the time, I discovered this sleeping giant within…it became an obession and started to consume me & then a little techno monster was born!!! Whilst studying at CoFA I also took it upon myself to get acquainted with Ableton Live as well as getting taught Pro Tools at college. Since then I have expanded my knowledge to include Logic as well, so it’s been a pretty serious learning curve and there is always new stuff to keep abreast of. But it’s so rewarding, much more so than selling financial software to dorky brokers and having to watch rugby in coporate boxes to schmooze a**hole bankers!

What was the first club you ever played at?

Arthouse in 2002

What was your first record/cd you bought?

1982 Out of The Blue

What's your favourite track of all time?

All my tracks are like my children, you cannot have a favourite, youy just have to love all the good ones equally

Funniest thing that ever happened while Dj’ing?

2 chicks got in to a catfight and one of them pulled her very sexy tight dress over her head and showed off her amazing body before slapping the other girl. F**kiing gold (good eye candy too haha)

Other DJs you rate?

Ant J Steep, Bump DJs, Jeremy Joshua, DJ Schwa from BEEF Records, Claire Morgan, YokoO, Alex Kid,

So how is the party scene in your eyes at the moment?

Good but can be better. We are not exactly Berlin yet, but we are trying to keep the dream alive

When all the partying is over how do you like to chill out?

With my girl on the couch watching movies, eating Doughboys, Sea Salt flavoured Red Rock Deli chips and a Yalla Chocolate Raspberry Mousse to finich off, F**k YEH!! Oh and going to Ikea and Rhodes on Mondays when there is no-one else there LoL

What advice would you give to up and coming DJs?

Find your groove
Don’t get all your music from Beatport
Play your own style
Believe in your sound
Learn how to mix vinyl
Learn how to produce
Manage your profile intelligently
