This one has been a long time in the making. WILLIE BURNS first appeared on our radar around 2005 when doing the Short Bus radio show as Dj Speculator on New York’s East Village Radio. Every week, you’d hear the Texas native play weird persian chants alongside dark acid tracks or obscure italo disco, music he’d dug up in the endless piles of records at The Thing in Greenpoint NYC. Fast forward to 2014, when Burns is a much lauded and in demand producer operating under an endless list of monikers like Black Deer, Daywalker + CF, Grackle or Smackulator with his pal Legowelt. Overseas dj tours have been rare however, as Burns still works the weekends as a swimming instructor at the Manhattan NYU pool. Imagine our excitement when we got the call that Willie Burns finally agreed to make his way to the Holger floor!
More awesomeness arrives in the shape of DJ TLR, founder and bossman of Crème Organization. The Dutch label, which shares its rich history alongside the Bunker collective, has been producing off-kilter, raw, analogue house and techno since 2000. With a payroll that reads like a who’s who of modern day leftfield dance music – Simoncino, Basic Soul Unit, J.T.C., Orgue Electronique, John Heckle, Xosar, Bangkok Impact and many more – Crème has become a widely respected label of excellence, paving the way for relative newcomers as L.I.E.S. Records or The Trilogy Tapes by never losing track of its punk DIY attitude. A couple of producing stints aside, TLR’s true passion remains dj’ing – setting floors all over the globe alight with sounds ranging from loose funk to hard hitting electro – and that’s exactly what he’ll do for us.
Jack of all trades PHONETICS needs little introduction. If you’ve never danced at a 54Kolaktiv party, listened to the Ménage Ménage radio show or checked his 22tracks bass selections, you just don’t know. Phonetics is a guy who cares about the world you live in – always pushing things further and we’re super happy to have him in our midst.
