  • After being introduced to the world of dance music by his brother and sister, Detlef began DJ-ing some 20 years ago. Gifted a set of turntables by his father, he was told to follow his dreams, and he did just that. Now a staple name in the house scene, Detlef has released countless tracks across many of the most sought after labels, and has become a regular feature at clubs and festivals the world over. On February 4th, he joins us alongside Denney and the Residents in Fusion for what’s shaping up to be be special night indeed.

    Past:

    After beginning to make a name for himself Detlef signed his first EP to Steve Lawler’s Viva Music in 2011. The release entitled “Hold On” showed the diversity that Detlef was able to offer in his productions, and from then onwards has been followed by releases on Circle Music, Moon Harbour, Defected, Hot Creations and more.

    Present:

    Right now, Detlef is finishing up his current tour of the Americas, having just played at what he claims to be his favourite festival, BPM in Mexico. Before he reaches us at DBE in Feb, he’ll be stopping off at Argentina, followed by getting ship faced on the Groove Cruise in Miami. He’s also recently had a collab with Green Velvet that is nothing short of what you’d expect from these two coming together. Detlef is a man in demand.

    Future:

    Detlef’s continuing to work closely with his good pal Steve Lawler and and the rest of the Viva Warriors crew. His productions keep on hitting the high standards that he’s set himself, with one of his latest works just dropping now on Repopulate Mars. Later this month he’s also got a remix of a Paolo Rocco track coming out on Hot Creations.

    Past:

    Back in 1996 on pirate radio in London, Culture Shock aka James Poutney first heard Drum & Bass Music, he was inspired to play and produce his own beats, so set up his own studio. After a few years hard work in the lab he was first signed to Moving Shadow Records in 2004, a now legendary label which has seen the likes of Goldie, Rob, E-Z Rollers, Aquasky, Kenny Ken + loads more of Drum & Bass royalty pass through its discography. Two years later he was signed to RAM Records after attracting the attention of Andy C, and released  “The Third Stage” EP in 2007.

     

     

    Present:

    After an extended break from producing, we heard from Culture Shock next in 2014, when he released a remix for Moko – Your Love, as well “Troglodyte” VIP and “Raindrops,” this coupled with an original song he made in 2009 attracted the attention of Virgin EMI and he was signed to them to release it in 2015 with a vocal from Bryn Christopher of I See MONSTAS. “City Lights” was BBC R1’s “Track Of The Day” and got airplay across the globe.

     

    Future: 

    Showing no signs of slowing, Culture shock has had regular releases throughout 2015 and 2016, on RAM Records, featuring on Sub Focus’s self titled album, and collaborating with TC and Sub Focus to release on Torus, Sub Focus’s second album, released on RAM, Mercury and Virgin EMI.
