Moge de roze roos van DJ Koze vannacht bloeien op de mestvaalt van het electronisch verval

Vanavond treedt deze remarkabele dj met verlichte trekken uit Hamburg, op in die ouwe dansrammelkast van een FUSE hier in Brussel. Ooit de tempel van de technowereld, nu een afgebrand kerkhof van electronisch verval. Hopelijk zal er straks dan toch een wonderlijke roos gaan bloeien op die middernachtelijke mestvaalt in de rue Blaes.

Looking forward to DJ Koze’s set tonight in the old-time technotemple of the Abendland called FUSE. Once a frontierpost of modern dancemusic, these last years more some sort of a burnt down cemetery for electronic carcasses. Anyway, I do hope that Koze will manage to plant a rose on the mount of midnight dung in la Rue Blaes. Make it blossom in its fully red splendour amidst the darkness of past glory and the clouds of coldice-smoke. And please please please – mister Koze – please play your wonderful remix of Hildegard Knef ICH LIEBE EUCH at some point during your set tonight. So that our sore and painful belgian techno-ears may find the proper oinctment for its healing and recovery. Let the magic find its way, and we our way with the music that you will play. With kind regards, pax and peace and inspiration.

DJ KOZE (DE, Pampa)

Stefan Kozalla aka DJ Koze lives and works in Hamburg as a club DJ, musician (International PONY, Adolf Noise) and remixer for Chicks On Speed, Bob Sinclar, Justus Koehncke and more of the finest German bands and projects and successful producer and KOMPAKT recording artist.

Although DJ Koze has had a taste of pop success with Fischmob, he’s always been equally interested in experimenting with other forms of electronic music from ambient to break beats to wild sound collages from a myriad of musical genres.

An especially notable voyage in to uncharted musical waters, Adolf Noise (produced and performed by DJ Koze and his buddy Marcnesium) turned many a head around. Taking the artist into a deeper Electronic direction, “Adolf Noise“ features a far more abstract and unusual use of samples and grooves while keeping the listener on his / her toes by incorporating liberal usage of football commentary, television show snippets, radio plays, and telephone terror with drug-delinquents.
