Dave Clarke @ Fuse – Brussel – Belgium (16-09-2005)

Something about Dave Clarke:

The ‘gothy cool’ of Bauhaus’s ‘She’s In Parties’ has been resurrected on a stand-out album track with some vocal assistance from Berlin’s favorite daughters, Chicks On Speed. \”It’s a new song, written around the hook ‘she’s in parties’\” says Dave. \”And we had a great time recording it.\” Clarke first met the Chicks seven years ago at the infamous Ultraschall club. \”I was pretending to be the doorman, people’d be coming up to me saying (mock German accent) \”Ven is Dave Clarke on?\” We had a few drunken nights out with DJ Hell and Upstart, drinking Cognac and bourbon, going to 80’s soul clubs and playing chess. It sounds terribly communistic, doesn’t it?\”

His connection with the art-edge of electro doesn’t stop there. In 2001, Clarke released the World Service compilation, featuring a still unbeaten new-school electro tracklisting. Hacker, Fischerspooner and Adult. were all present and correct, some time before Trendy London caught on. \”There were loads of compilations that came out, six, twelve, even eighteen months later, all with a very similar tracklisting. It pissed me off. At that time, there was so much exciting music coming out and it wasn’t being serviced by DJs or radio or the press.\” Obviously, the record-buying public agreed and they sold 70,000 copies.

So will we be seeing Dave Clarke behind the decks at art-fashion electro clubs like Nag Nag Nag soon? \”I’ve got nothing to do with that scene,\” says Clarke. \”I find it really funny that I was one of the first DJs to bring attention to this music and I’ve never been asked to play in those clubs. I prefer League of Gentlemen clubs anyway, local clubs for local people.\” Although he will be taking the heavy sounds of Devil’s Advocate live, debuting his set at Creamfields. \”It’ll be me doing my thing, but in a punky live way.

Devil’s Advocate is an adrenalised album, cherry-picking the best of the last three decades and hammering it into a record laden with funk, groove and attitude. Take highlight ‘Dirtbox’ a totally rude boy, death-disco moment with a narcotic bassline to knock your socks off. He’s also pulled Chicago house lynchpin DJ Rush into the record, on the jack-track blastin‘ opener ‘Way Of Life’. It’s a tune that Clarke has road tested over the last twelve months, at clubs worldwide, from Portugal to Sao Paulo.
