Night Club - Dance Club in Dallas
On Friday July 26th, Capsul & It'lldo welcome special guests...
MOR ELIAN [Fever AM] - Berlin / LA
Mor Elian never “discovered” electronic music. Growing up in in Tel Aviv, a city where teenagers can get into nightclubs and electronic music is an intrinsic part of the culture, she simply did what all young people there do: she danced the night away to house, techno, and drum & bass.
After moving to Los Angeles in 2005, Elian took up DJing. Although her initial excursions were more focused on what she describes as “worldy” and “synthy” sounds, the call of the dance- floor eventually proved to be too strong, and she began digging for house, disco, and techno records to complement her new wave and world music selections.
Over the past few years, Elian has become a regular in LA’s burgeoning house and techno un- derground. She hosts a weekly radio program on Dublab, has been featured on Boiler Room, and has shared the stage with a variety of top-line DJs, including Matthew Dear, Jamie xx, Claude Young, Roy Davis Jr., Delroy Edwards, Oneman, Ikonika, and Cosmin TRG.
Of all the artists she’s played with, however, it’s perhaps Trus’me who is the most important, as the veteran Manchester DJ/producer signed Elian to his Prime Numbers imprint. The label just released her debut 12″, 323 to Plaza, which comes backed with a remix from Detroit upstart OB Ignitt.
More releases are on the way, but in the meantime, Elian has begun splitting time between Los Angeles and Berlin, a move that’s sure to sharpen her skills even further.
Gerard Hanson was born in 1972. He hails from Dallas, Texas USA. His productions have reflections with Basic Channel/Chain Reaction sound. His main inspirations are Juan Atkins and Derrick May. His music also has influences from Stefan Robbers, Red Planet and Carl Craig. He found a way where everything came together: Deepness, Minimalism and Soul, the Detroit-Berlin connection. In 1994 Gerard Hanson and Dan Kurzius started ‘Hardsync’, a Magazine dedicated to electronic music reviews and artist interviews. It has been defunct since 1996 as a result of a computer crash. Hard Sync was an outlet for several Texas-based electronic music enthusiasts to reach out to others around the world that shared similar musical interests. He released his first 12" on Matrix in 1995. From 1995-1997, he released five ep’s, and then only two more in the next six years until 2005. After that some other labels approached him but just wanted more of the same and didn't really seem to understand his sound. After that he stopped releasing music and produced only for his personal usage. After a couple of years the label Down Low convinced him to pick up his producing again. He is very careful about sharing his music with the rest of the world. In the last decade he only used the aliases Convextion and E.R.P. (Event Related Potential). E.R.P is an electro-edged moniker. Gerard has remained willingly anonymous since his debut in 1995, but he came out of obscurity for a debut European Live performance in London in April 2006.
