James Dean Brown
James Dean Brown, living/working in Berlin, Frankfurt/Main and Paris, is deeply rooted in the adventuresome Perlon family and a DJ regular in the line-up of their monthly, celebrated Get Perlonized parties at Panorama Bar since 2001. His versatile, musical roller coaster rides are passionate, vinyl-based, of timeless quality and designed for gaining "The Emotional Maximum". They follow an approach of serious deepness, psychedelic vibration and voodoo magic, driven by a cordial punch. Minimalism means the reduction of conformity here. Filling and killing a floor, JDB's trips welcome the crowd back to the adventurous aspect of partying.
JDB is known for living up to calculated extravagant licentiousness. While he sets a club on fire by igniting a brew of effective dance propellants, his DJ manoeuvres produce a flow of inspiring surprises. A smart feel for progression and sound design finds expression in elegant fades and well-rounded resolutions. Lowering the floor down to the groundwater of euphoria, home of the bass, JDB arouses a swarm of sophisticated rhythms from there. Ranging from soulful and tribal vibes via West Coast House to all sorts of Club Funk, the space in between fills with sensuality, lascivious energy, temptation, and blasts of heat. The crowd's destination is collective freakability.
JDB played places and events in Germany, Europe and the world: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Bordeaux, Buenos Aires, Cologne, Corfu, Frankfurt, Gdansk, Geneva, Hamburg, Karlsruhe, Kassel (Documenta X), Kiev, Krakow, Kyoto (Star Festival), London, Lyon, Mannheim (Time Warp 9), Milano, Moscow, Munich, Nantes, Nice, Offenbach, Osaka, Paris, Rabat, Santiago de Chile, Sofia, Tbilisi, Tokyo, Toronto, Vienna, Warsaw, Wroclaw, Zurich.
People rave about James Dean Brown's "oeuvre of massive dancefloor destruction", his "auditive tsunami" and his "exciting mix sessions (that) can manage your body in a way you didn't expect", while others, who have "seen him absolutely kill a dancefloor", even claim "…it was religious…".
