With each passing year it becomes more and more of a joy to celebrate the founding of Tresor Club in Berlin, a ground-breaking moment in techno history, now 26 years years young – and kicking! In March 1991, like-minded electronic music heads from Berlin and around the world gathered in an abandoned department store treasury to carve out a new form of musical art: techno. Inspired by the Detroit masters, many of them shuttled between the Motor City and Berlin, creating masterpieces that were set on vinyl on the ensuing Tresor Records. Tonight we are pleased to welcome some of our favorite artists for the celebration. DJ Bone, who some see as the champion of the underground, never bends to fit the “popular” DJ mold, those who recognize Bone know him for his uncompromising and innovative ways. His record label Subject Detroit is futuristic and unearthly while still displaying the true essence of Detroit’s Techno Soul. DJ Bone describes himself as “an uncompromising, hype hating, 100% independent, real Detroit native come auditory striker and soul controller that cannot be bought”. Milton Baldwin aka DJ Skurge shares the decks as well: having been noticed by UR’s Mike Banks, he was invited to be in the foursome revival of Model 500 with Juan Atkins and a proper member of the UR family. DJ Skurge‘s stern dedication to the crafts has seen him take on the role of musical director in many projects, while he somehow found time to release some genre bending EPs of his own while recording with The Aquanauts as well. But for all the time spent being the self proclaimed “tall guy in the back, in the shadows” for these musical projects, he is still a DJ at heart. Both of these Detroit chameleons are given bangin support by our basement residents Marcel Heese and Mischa. In Globus, Edward McKeithen aka Jus-Ed, is a DJ, producer and since 2004 Underground Quality label owner. A voyage into the world of DJ Jus-Ed reveals an adventurous, energetic and spiritual style of playing quality house music. Along with his MC skills he brings the club, dance floor, and people into a unforgettable night! As well as touring to international venues, he has 48 vinyl releases, 4-CD albums and over 10 remixes for other labels. Kelli Hand aka K-Hand stands alongside Detroit’s elite, the sort of DJ that has devoted more than two decades to working crowds into techno dance frenzy. Whether it is a lengthy set at Movement Detroit Music Festival, or a headlining gig at a high-profile, Hand knows how to read a crowd and seduce it, one track after another, until she has it at her mercy, and the dance floor dances. K-Hand is also known as the brains and boss behind the long-running Acacia Records Label, one of the city’s most prolific labels throughout the ‘90s into the ‘00s, and to date. Not to mention her legendary album on Tresor Records “Detroit-History Part 1” in 2001. Amsterdam clubbing these days wouldn’t be the same without the ongoing efforts of DJ/producer/promoter/label owner and returning artist Carlos Valdes. Not only has he enriched the city’s nightlife with a series of refreshing initiatives, but also introduced new artists from abroad and pushed a young generation of local talent. Carlos Valdes has also managed to become one of Holland’s most respected and loved underground DJs, setting dancefloors aflame across the Netherlands and abroad. With a terrific support set from resident Magda El Bayoumi, this will be a rousing night in Tresor!
