DEZ WILLIAMS

Holy Island, an island off of the coast of North Wales is where Dez Williams begun spinning wax at an early age and now maintains his humble analogue / digital studio. Isolated from the marketing, fashion and pretentious attitudes that plague the music industry, Dez is free to express himself through his machines. Safe from this environment he is unconstrained and has no urge to conform with any ideal or aesthetic and thus his electronic music is pure self expression. A window into his soul. His day job at an electronic components factory means that he is no stranger to repetition, rhythm and electronics. His sound is perhaps a product of his daily grind with boredom, escapism, events in his life and a long term passion for technology, horror and science fiction. Inspired by many of the classic Chicago / Detroit / electro / techno producers, like the finest, his sound is unique, uncompromising and unpredictable. His vision of techno is deep and futuristic with a heavy dose of funk. Dez's passion for sound and the darker side of the human spirit compels him to create tracks on an almost daily basis and he sits on an incredibly vast archive of cassettes, mini-discs and CD's of his work. Yet his reclusive nature dictates that his release schedule remains sparse. His tracks can range from driving techno, to melancholy and dark synthesizer orchestrations, ghostly deep listening, straight up electro cuts and beyond. Sometimes simple, sometimes complex, within his sounds are vast amounts of detail for the listener to decipher. Emotions transmitted through mathematics and code. Williams' tracks have found their way into the sets of DJ's like Dave Clarke, Adam X, John Peel, Ellen Allien, Mike Dred and Rob Hall. He has constantly retained an underground / cult fanbase. His debut LP 'Elektronik Religion' for the SCSI label was hailed as "One of the very few truly great electro albums of the new century". Dez remains true to the underground and simply creates for the love and need to do so. The mark of a true artist. He continues to DJ and play live sets and has had releases on a variety of labels including Acruacreee, Ai, Cheap, SCSI, Blase, Voodoo, and Ben Sims' Native imprint...

DEZ WILLIAMS - KOLLEKTION - WARM DATA 029


Dez Williams' third album on Warm Data entitled 'Kollektion', concluding a trilogy for the label, is a fourteen track opus of deeply immersive styles, cutting a broad swathe through the electronic music landscape.

At once harking back to the 'golden age' of UK techno from the likes of B12, Black Dog and Aphex Twin, whilst tracing the arc of influence back to Detroit via the ultra smooth yet urgent 4/4 pulse of 'Surplus' and in the case of '4ling (Voxless)' further still to the proto-techno origins of Kraftwerk.

Elsewhere, the langourous Slomo and submersive Caltraon, give a nod to the more stripped down leanings of the contemporary German techno sound. The darker electro snap of 'The Ability' and the unsettling menace of 'Dominant' acting as counterpoint. The more introspective electronics of tracks like the cunningly titled 'Habbrakadabrac' or selective ambience of 'Fex2', serve to clear the palette ready for the next welcome deviation in sound.

An accomplished anthology with broad appeal for deeper floors and contemplative head-spaces alike, and a good introduction to this long serving and prolific UK DJ and producer. Offering the listener a wonderfully varied selection, each strong enough to stand alone, yet working as a cohesive and involving listen when heard as a whole.

the album is available now on Bandcamp

DJ FUNK at Timbuk2, Bristol - July 29th, 2011



Bristol's Timbuk2 have left us awestruck with consistently stellar bookings featuring, for us at least, some of the biggest names in the business that, in an ideal world, should require no introduction or overt hype - DJ Godfather, Dave Clarke, Egyptian Lover, Marcel Dettmann, Space Dimension Controller, Marco Passarani, Jerome Hill, Soundstream, Function to name a few... that list continues to grow on July 29th-30th as IST DAS & BROCKOUT give us the addition of two more names, DJ FUNK and LEGOWELT.

The NONOM DJs will be warming up for DJ FUNK on the Friday night with a tight and deep selection of true school house and techno to get the party simmering before DJ Funk steps up to tear the floor apart...

For the real heads that 'recog', we'll see you there, front and centre.
For the rest, its about time you set that alarm.
