[En] Interview – David Brown (Swayzak / 240 volts / !K7 / Serieculture)

David Brown Swayzak 240 Volts Serieculture !K7

David Brown is one of the two guys (with James Taylor) who’s running Swayzak since ten years now. After fantastic albums as the incredible minimal dubby tech-house Snowboarding in argentina (1998), the 80’s vocal-pop Himawari (2000), the big electroclashed Dirty dancing (in tribute to Patrick Swayze’s Dirty Dancing movie ;-), and the last one Some other country, David Brown is launching a new label with the dj and friend Roger 23 named Serieculture. We know all that the Swayzak’s lives are always amazing and improvised, but we know less about the dj-side, even if they have released two fantastic cd-mixes for Fabric and Goovetechnology in the past few years.

[En] Swayzak – 10 years @ Rex Club

October 20th. English duet Swayzak was celebrating their ten years of collaboration at Rex Club, Paris, and also their last album Some Other Country (!K7).

After a great groovy deep / dub (with some little dark oddities) warm-up by Roger 23, and the short concert of Richard Davis, David Brown & James Taylor finally came to the stage. So, what was going on? Just two sweet hours of laptop-live, as usually totally improvised, with some vocal tracks sung by their old friend Richard Davis (Another way back, No sad goodbyes…). Then, Roger and all the crew played nice records until 6 am. A really good night!
