The brains behind the fantastic “Obscur Sessions”, DJ Eks, gave us the low down:
Dj Eks was born in Switzerland in 1975.
Inspired by his older brother, he discovered the world of music, with groups like The Cure, Depeche Mode, Souxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus and others playing a part in his musical journey. Although passionate about hip-hop culture throughout the early 80’s, by the end of the decade and into the early 90s, his brother would visit London where he had discovered the rave culture. He brought Dj Eks his first mixtape – breakbeat and drum’n’bass.
Dj Eks went to his first rave in 1992 and soon discovered the world of clubbing. In 1993, following a car accident, he started mixing and bought his first pair of Technics SL1200 turntables.
He started playing hardcore and gabber, then fell into acid techno and a range of other genres that he still loves. Nowadays, he mainly plays industrial techno, acid, acidcore, tribe, rave, techno and dark techno.
Obscur Antism Record label is due to launch September 2020 – Watch this space!
