Decibel 2011 Preview: Chateau Flight, Deniz Kurtel, Mike HuckabyPosted by Chris Govella
If electronic music had a soul, it would be deep house: cool, moody and full of mystique. The October 1st bill brings artists from across time and space who all share a concerted interest in jacking your body. The Bunker resident DJ Derek Plaslaiko will perform(his 5th Decibel Fest related appearance!) instead of Motor City Drum Ensemble, who was denied entry to the US. After a couple of singles on Wolf + Lamb, Deniz Kurtel is touring in support of her newest work “Music Watching Over Me.” The debut album on Crosstown Rebels collects the liquid echoes of Azari and III with a taste of Maya Jane Coles’s subterranean house grooves. I:Cube belongs to the first wave of French house producers that stormed the clubs in the late 90s. His brand of jazzy, soulful cuts will heat up the crowd before he joins Gilbert Cohen to form Chateau Flight for a second round of selections.
