    Nachtduik Rings In Rotterdam’s 2018 With Nina Kraviz, Speedy J, KiNK & More

    nachtduik-2018-2018nachtduik-2018-2018

    Back for the sixth year, Nachtduik celebrates the New Year in Rotterdam with a top of the line Techno and House lineup.

    Known for transforming massive spaces into dark pop clubs with a combination of decor, visuals, and (of course) music, Nachtduik has brought the likes of Dave Clarke, Jeff Mills, and Ben Klock to its annual celebration in editions past. This year, its two rooms sees another lineup of musical icons and heavyweights, both local and international, handling celebratory duties at Rotterdam’s massive Ahoy.

    In Room 1, which sees a focus on pure Techno sounds, the genre’s current queen, Nina Kraviz, will join the local hero, Speedy J. Also on hand representing the harder sounds of the spectrum are LIVE performances from Karenn and Function, as well as DJ sets from Abstract Division and Matrixxman.

    The hall’s second room will focus on the more “warmer” side of the spectrum, with a special live performance from KiNK, as well as House’s current queen, The Black Madonna, a special b2b between Joy Orbison & Gerd Janson, and De Sluwe Vos.

    Tickets for this event are significantly less than most events fro this time of year, which means they will be going fast, so check out all the details below!

      South Africa’s prime DJ/producer Das Kapital has remixed Bengali singer Arzeen’s new single on LA based, world influenced label Pinkturban. Titled Prem De, the single is a refreshing serving of Bangladeshi music. Das Kaptial’s intoxicating, bass heavy and club friendly remix offers something completely unique and is sure to set dancefloors alight in South Africa and beyond. 
       
      Das Kapital is a DJ, producer, and radio host with a vision. His music defies boundaries by traversing House, UK Garage, Techno, Acid, Breaks and Bass Music, warping genres with a distinct forward-thinking vibe. The Cape Town based artist has released on a plethora of labels including This Ain’t Bristol, World Famous Headquarters, Punks Music and Saucy Records, while he’s been supported by the likes of A-Trak, Diplo, Oliver Heldens, Anna Lunoe, and many more. The result is a premier national reputation that’s seen Das Kapital nominated for three awards at the 2018 DMASA (Dance Music Awards South Africa) – plus winning Best EDM single in 2017 - not to mention his weekly three-hour national radio show on 5FM called In Das We Trust, which has been running for 4 years. 
       
      It speaks volumes about Das Kapital’s artistic vision that he has teamed with Arzeen for a cosmopolitan remix that glues South African underground dance music with an Eastern musical form. A highly respected singer, songwriter and lyricist, the now LA based Arzeen has written music for film and has been personally invited to the likes of Las Vegas, Santa Barbara, and New York to share his entrancing voice and culture. 
       
      Das Kapital’s remix is as club-driven as it is nuanced. Arzeen’s melodious vocals offer a memorable flip to the usual dance-floor tropes club-goers are used to and is sure to become a regular spun gem by DJs far and wide.
        
      Arzeen – Prem De (Das Kapital Remix) is out now!

      SKIY has brought her authentic techy house sound to world-renowned Spinnin’ Deep. Titled Quiggin, the club-focused single sees SKIY flex her deft production abilities, showing the world her credibility not only behind the decks but in the studio as well. Brimming with energy and musicality, Quiggin is SKIY’s first release of 2019, kicking off what is poised to be her biggest year to date.
       
      Since bursting onto the scene in 2017 with a slew of releases, SKIY has kept herself busy both as an international DJ and blossoming producer, crafting a vibrant dancefloor sound. She’s DJed acclaimed shows in Germany alongside the likes of Timmy Trumpet and Tiesto while global superstar Oliver Heldens snapped up her last single, Who Got The Keys, singing it to his Heldeep Records. Strong preferential support has already come from the likes of The Magician, EDX, Chocolate Puma, Dillon Francis, and many more. 
       
      SKIY’s mother was a jazz singer while she herself is a trained pianist. A rich musical upbringing shared between Brazil, Germany and Croatia has enabled SKIY to pour a range of influences into her music, imbuing it with soulful grooves and clever musicality. 
       
      Quiggin makes no exception. Jittering drum patterns give way to bubbling synths and swirling fx while infectious vocal samples crescendo into a minimal hands-in-the-air moment. Underpinned by memorable arpeggios and quirky percussive melodies, Quiggin is sure to find its way into the record collection of the world’s biggest stars, taking SKIY’s own glittering career to new heights in the process.

      Alex Preston has produced a new EP for Sonny Fodera’s growing Solotoko label. Titled Ain’t Gonna Cry, the EP sees the Australian DJ / producer showcase his exciting new style of underground house music, which fuses tasteful guitar licks and disco tinged funky basslines. Accompanied by a new live show that utilises Alex Preston’s virtuosic talents as an instrumentalist, Ain’t Gonna Cry is set to kick off 2019 with a bang for the Sydney-native whose career keeps growing year on year.  
       
      Since bursting onto the scene a few years back with his deft production abilities and raw aptitude for musicality, Alex Preston has firmly established himself at the helm of Australia’s underground house scene. He regularly appears on the ARIA club charts and has released on Armada Deep, BMKLTSCH RCRDS, and RCA (Sony US), among others. He’s picked up support from the like of Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, Idris Elba, Oliver Heldens, and many more, while his live show is setting dancefloors alight all over Australia with an innovative blend of live guitar licks and mixing. 
       
      Alex is as comfortable in the studio as he is behind the decks and it shows with Ain’t Gonna Cry. The title track layers soulful disco samples on top of deep and funky bass lines while cascading grooves weave in and out of the beat. I Know I Got occupies darker territory but not with inspired guitar solos while Nobody Else sees Alex inject jumping beats next to tastefully crafted vocals. 
       
      Brimming with musicality and vitality, Ain’t Gonna Cry marks an exciting new direction for Alex Preston’s ever-evolving sound and the stat of an extremely successful 2019.
      Alex Preston – Ain’t Gonna Cry is out 11th January

      Dr Packer, aka Greg Packer, is well known amongst the music scene for his remixes & edits of classic tunes from 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s Soul, Disco, Funk, Hip Hop & Reggae.  Dr Packer has quickly become a mainstay in the sets of some of the biggest names in the disco world, with this support helping him to be voted #1 in the Traxsource Top 20 NuDisco Artists for two consecutive years running.
      Dr Packer is one of the four main headliners playing at Sunset Safari at Albert Park Greenfields on New Year’s Day, alongside DJ Spen and local Melbourne heavyweight, Boogs.  Leading up to his New Years Day set, he takes a moment to have a chat with Ozclubbers' founder @Adam Madd.
       

      AM: Hi Greg, thanks for taking the time to chat with us here at Ozclubbers! First up, something that I’ve personally been curious about.  How did the “Dr” part of your name come about?
      DP: My real name is Greg Packer which makes my initials 'GP', also an old friend years ago used to call me 'the disco doctor' cos he also knew about my obsession with collecting disco & soul records.
       
      AM: You’ve got a well-known name amongst the Jungle and D&B scene in WA as Greg Packer, but what inspired you to start playing soul, disco, funk, and reggae as Dr Packer?
      DP: A lot of people didn't realise but I was already doing it on the side, just not producing it under the name 'Dr Packer'. I had a residency at a night here called 'The Funk Club' and did events under the name 'Boogaloo', this was me playing strictly all disco vinyl sets. I kept it on the down low as the diehard DnB fans would have started to think I was jumping ship, it was only when I decided to start producing it that I felt I needed to change my name, I wanted to keep my surname and just change the first part and start fresh under a new name.
       
      AM: How dramatically the Perth scene changed since you first started playing in 1990?  Would you say it’s for good or bad, and why?
      DP: I think there are pros and cons, for e.g. back in 1990 people would be clubbing without mobile phones or any type of social media distractions therefore all attention was on the DJ, but then the technology these days is amazing playing off USB sticks and the music production sound quality is a lot better than back in 1990. Plus, in those days you'd rarely get the big festivals like we get now. There are probably loads of good and bad points if you really think about it, but I think for me I prefer now.
       
      AM: Your disco remixes have been referred to as beefier, fatter version of the original. While it’s probably hard to select just a couple from the vast remix repertoire you have, can you list a couple of remixes you’ve done that stand out to you as favourites, and tell us briefly what inspired you to remix them?
      DP: The ones that really stand out for me is my version of Donna Summer 'I feel love', which I did back in 2015. It was the one mix that was nailed straight away, and I still play it most sets now. It was a request from my mother, so I had to do it, but I am so glad I did as it ended up being one of my fave edits really beefed up and sounds amazing on a good system. Also, my version of 'Grandmaster Melle Mel - white lines' seems to be very popular and I get lots of love and requests for it. Just one day I thought about doing something other than straight up disco, and a lot of those early hip hop tunes were heavily disco influenced to begin with. I wasn't sure if it would get accepted on the dancefloor to begin with but now it’s often one of the biggest moments in my sets.
       
      AM: You’ve been compared to the likes of Hot Toddy, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Joey Negro, Greg Wilson, Norman Jay, and Fingerman.  What does it feel like to be in the same spectrum as these musical masterminds?
      DP: Amazing !!!!!  I mean I looked up to these guys when I first started out doing this and now, I'm often on the bill with them. I still feel like a teenage groupie around them, but I try to hold it together and remind myself I’m a 46 year old man !!!! haha 
       
      AM: You’ve just recently reached the no.1 spot on Traxsource’s top100 NuDisco artists, for the second year running!  (Congratulations!)  How did you feel when you heard of that achievement?
      DP: Total shock !!! Last year they requested a high res pic of me the day before so it kind of gave the game away that I won it, and this year I didn't get that email, so I convinced myself I didn't get it, so when I saw that I had again I got a massive buzz.
       
      AM: Where did your musical journey actually start?  What inspired you to start DJing?
      DP: I saw the band 'Technotronic' play at a concert in 1989 and they had a half time break, and they said there DJ will play for half n hr, so I watched him from a balcony above as he was cutting, scratching and mixing old hip hop, funk & house tunes. He was amazing, and that moment I had that thought in my head 'I need to do this', so by October '89 I'd saved enough money to get my first pair of decks, which means by Oct 2019 it will be 30 years for me as a DJ. Sounds like an excuse for a party !!!! 
       
      AM: What was your first record?
      DP: Grandmaster Flash - The Message. It was in the charts at the time (1982) and my older brother bought it for me as a birthday present, the vinyl collection (or should I say addiction) grew from that moment.
       
      AM: Can you list your top 5 records at the moment and maybe something about each that attracts you to them?
      DP:
      Qwestlife - Hit It Off (Glitter Box)
      Sometimes I think cover versions can ruin a track, but in this case I like it as much if not a tad more than the original, fantastic update !!!
      Spencer Morales ft Tasha LaRae - I Need Your Lovin (Opolopo Remix) (Quantize Recordings) 
      Pretty Much for the same reasons as the above tune, a cover version done extremely well and Opolopo nailed the new baseline  
      Patrice Rushen - Never Gonna Give You Up 'Joey Negro Mix' (Z Records)
      I’ve been playing this for a little while now and I can’t leave it alone, love the new chords Joey added and a great production update to an already classic tune 
      Lenny Fontana & Shirley Lites - Fire 'Dr Packer Remix' (Midnight Riot) 
      I felt so privileged to be asked to remix a tune by 2 people that I admire very much 'Lenny Fontana' and 'Shirley Lites' who delivered a real authentic sounding disco number that sounded like it could have been released in 1979, I put my usual Dr Packer stamp on it
      Slam Dunk'd , Chromeo  - No Price 'Art Of Tones Remix' (Glitterbox) 
      I only just found out this was an 'Arthur Baker' production which surprised me, but a great nice chuck of modern disco smoothed out a tad by 'Art Of Tones' love it !!!! 
        AM: What is in the production pipeline for Dr Packer?  What can we expect to hear from you in 2019 and onwards?
      DP: As we speak I am working on forthcoming material for 'Glitterbox, Big Love Records, Masterworks' and hoping to get a rework album released for next year done officially, which is a lot of hard work but I’m up for the challenge. The tracks are ready to go, its more about the licensing side of things as I no longer wish to be looking over my shoulder.
       
      AM: Can you recommend a couple of artists that our readers should be keeping an eye on?
      DP: Nobody brand new has jumped out at me this year, but one artist 'Michael Gray' who is one half of 'Full Intention' has been sending me some stuff this year that has really impressed me, and I have supported everything he has sent thru. I look forward to the next inbox each time. Also the great Joey Negro has been killing me this year to the point where I have to force myself to not play too many of his tunes in my set. I could easily play a whole set of his stuff and I don't think I am alone in saying that.
       
       
      AM: And finally, tell us something that we don’t know about Dr Packer?
      DP: I used to be a brickies labourer. I was often referred to as 'The Dog' or 'The Beast' by my fellow tradesmen which was general building site banter. The supervisors and bosses would walk on site and say hello to all the tradesmen, and just walk past me (the labourer) as you wasn't even worthy of a 'Hello'. But now I’m often picked up from the airport in a limousine with a personal driver holding a sign saying 'Dr Packer', and then driven to a fancy hotel and sign autographs and take photos after my set. Complete madness !!!! 
       
      Thanks again for taking the time to speak with us, Greg!
