Under the Tree
Club Supermarket [Zürich]
|Address:||Geroldstrasse 17 Zürich|
LINE UP: Makcim / Levi / Alex Wild / James Mc Hale / Romano Corsini / Juffy
Just like the vodka from his birthplace, Moscow-born Dutch-resident Makcim always fuels the party spirit with his intoxicating and powerful sets, mixing house and techno to create refreshingly deep and sexy grooves. And when he`s not inspiring the clubbing crowds from the vinyl decks, you`ll find him releasing quality tunes on Amsterdam imprint Remote Area, Raum Musik, VBX or Apollonia together with his music partner-in-crime, Levi.
Each release unique, but always taking you on a quality sound journey to the deeper, funkier side of house-music life with sexed up steamy vocal snippets and chunky rolling rhythms which continue to tick all the right boxes for the DJ likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Margaret Dygas, Richi Hawtin, tINI, Luciano….
All you need to know about Levi Verspeek is that he is not the same person as Rhadoo, even though their similar appearances deceive even the most professional musicologists. Though not (yet) as famous in Romania, Levi is one of the most familiar names in the Amsterdam.
This is partly because in 2013 “Levi” was the second most popular baby name in the Netherlands and partly because Levi himself started popping up behind the decks at some of the most prestigious parties in and around Amsterdam. If the dance, or better, techno scene can be compared with a man`s life, Levi saw this former child rising up and nourished it like a caring mother.
His relationship with machinery started to show at an early age of 22 he already had his first release on Body Parts: Hans EP. His grooving, driving and freaking sound already started to garner attention from artists like Raresh. Through his straddles and waggles around the town, Levi got kidnapped by Makcim. Together they started producing tracks, involving themselves in obnoxiously real and sweat-drenched basement-raves and taking early morning walks through the streets of western Amsterdam. Their combined ideologies jelled the definitiv and futurist sharp-cut Daan de Pup EP, which was to be released on the prestigious Raum Musik. He is currently working on an EP for the Dutch label RUIS and is cooking up even more wonderful music. So don’t sleep on Levi, that`s not comfortable.
