Canada has dj A-Trak, but Holland has dj Kypski. This six-time Dutch dj champion and scratching virtuoso is a key figure in the dutch dj scene. Known for his scratching, drumming and production in the Dutch eclectic band C-Mon & Kypski, he is now ready to rock the decks with his own style of dancemusic. He’s released seven albums with his band, two scratch-records, has made several remixes for bands like zZz, Lotus, but perhaps his most well-known remix is Deadelus’ ‘Touchtone’ (Kypski Remix), released on Ninja-Tune in 2008. In that year Kypski also released his infamous mixtape ‘Kyptape 2008′.
Kypski collaborates with legendary musicians in almost every thinkable genre, and has played or dj-ed at the biggest venues in Holland and abroad. From the Paradiso, Melkweg, Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam to the Hammerstein Ballroom and Webster Hall in NYC, where he could be seen last year Dj-ing next to Hot Chip. Kypski had been schooled in turntablism by U.S. dj Ace in 1996, who works together with the scratching legends D-Styles and Q-Bert, the people who in their turn schooled dj A-Trak. When Kypski came back from the States in 1997, he won every dj contest in Holland. He now starts off with a new project, called ‘Partyscratch’. Scratch music to party to. Using his scratching skills with genres ranging from Disco to Techno, Kypski’s signature can be distinguished in every track. Read more
