Chez Damier Comes to Melbourne
The Music Institute: opened in Detroit in the late '80s, providing a place for the slowly coalescing techno scene to unfold and grow.
Prescription: widely regarded as one of most high-quality purveyors of deep house and beyond to ever exist. KMS: Kevin Saunderson's legendary techno outlet. Can anybody tell me what all of these have in common? Chez Damier’s deep involvement with these pivotal parts of dance music’s immense and tangled history certifies him as one of the scene’s most hard-working heroes. As a producer, immortal cuts like "Sometimes I Feel Like," "The Choice" and "Be My" remain unparalleled examples of the genre's greatest successes. After taking an extended break from the music industry either side of the turn of the millennium, the house music impulse returned to Damier, accompanied by a handful of releases in 2004 and the odd DJ date, hinting at a return for the musical hero. It was in 2009 that Damier found a trusted outlet for his talents - a number of releases on German-based Mojuba was all we needed to celebrate the man's return. Taking up the torch of Prescription, Damier launched Balance Alliance as a home for some of the most forward thinking and talented producers he deems fit to join him on the imprint.
No better time, then, to catch him at his peak - Chez Damier plays Brown Alley on Friday July 20.
