▦ Dave Clarke, the Baron of Techno

Dave Clarke was born and raised in Brighton, England, but currently resides in Amsterdam, a city which revitalized his life and work. The offspring of a technology loving father and a disco-soul loving mother, it was always evident that Clarke would cut a swathe through music. As a youth he ran away from home, sleeping in car parks and on beaches. He took lousy jobs in shoe shops, living off £5 a day, to subsidise his income from badly paid local DJ gigs – anything to further his involvement with music.

Clarke’s debut release was in 1990 on XL, around the time the label was launching The Prodigy. He used the name Hardcore, a guise he then took to the legendary Belgian techno-rave imprint R&S where he released various EPs. By 1992 Clarke’s own label, Magnetic North, was on the rise and he unveiled the classic ‘Alkaline 3dh’, among others. A next level career boost was round the corner when his ‘Red’ trilogy were unleashed on Bush Records in 1994.

Dozens of LP’s, mixes and albums later, we can say that Dave Clarke has earned his stripes as an international techno player. As a DJ, Clarke plays out three weekends a month across Europe and the world, living up to his nickname, the Baron of Techno, a moniker given him by the late, great BBC Radio DJ John Peel. Techno’s first and original “Man in Black”, Clarke blends into the background upon arrival and lets his music do the talking.

From small, sweaty clubs to the likes of Fabric, Fuse or Tresor, Clarke nurtures an extraordinary relationship with the crowd. It’s the same with festivals. He’s played Awakenings, I Love Techno, Lowlands, Pukkelpop, Glastonbury and Nature One, and developed a special relationship with Tomorrowland where he has his own stage. Clarke also continues to be a key player in the Amsterdam Dance Event where his Dave Clarke Presents event at Melkweg has sold out 11 consecutive years running. And then there’s White Noise, Clarke's weekly radio show, a global institution and an indicator of where the scene is headed, more than 600 editions in and going out on over 100 FM partners worldwide.

He flies the flag for true techno spirit. He has a consistency of vision and purpose rare in the ever-changing world of dance music. In short, Dave Clarke might be established, but he will never be establishment.

▦ Teknoville, December 7th at Radar (Lokeren)

The Teknoville concept was originally organised by Studio Brussels and 5 voor 12, the legendary Teknoville parties are considered to be at the basis of Belgium's house and techno music.

The first edition took place at Cherry Moon in 1994 and took the risk of presenting a rather unusual line-up for those days with DJs like Laurent Garnier, Speedy J and Union Jack. Nevertheless, the first edition was a big hit, attracting clubbers from every corner of Belgium and even beyond. With a total of more than 3000 visitors history was made that day! Nowadays the concept mainly takes place in The Charlatan in Ghent. On the 7th of December, they’ll return to their first love & home base, Radar (former Cherry Moon) in Lokeren, for what will be an unforgettable night.
