Ulysses

By Eileen Chan

Ulysses

Ulysses has been DJ-ing for close to two decades now, yet he remains a devoted student, eagerly discovering new sounds as he scours the world (or just Discogs these days) for records. The crate-digger is just as likely to throw down classics from the disco and house canon, as he is to experiment with an under-appreciated gem or two. If you’re not familiar with his music, trust us when we say that it spans not just continents, but styles and eras, all while keeping a good groove in mind.

Press play and let Ulysses fill your next 60 minutes with worldly delights, journeying through disco, house and funk rhythms – a sound that’s become unmistakably his own.

Tracklist:

D.O.G - The Key (Lunar Dub)
Weird Weather - Sequence 5
Todh Teri - Sampadan
Carol & Carl Jacobs - Robot Jam (Pt.2)
Martin Circus - Disco Circus (In The 3rd Dimension Edit)

Julien Brochard

Julien Brochard

As the cold fades away like the distant memory of the ice factory rave, it seems only fitting that we bring the focus back to our first resident, Julien Brochard. He’s the one who’s been there with us since the early days of our rogue operative, starting off with street-side parties and pop-up raves in hidden locations.

It’s been a pleasure watching our #TechnoWonderBoy grow from strength to strength in the past 2 years, as he immersed himself in the deeper, darker shades of techno to deliver full-throttle sets that convey a measured aggression. Having shared the stage with some of techno’s heavyweights – the likes of Rebekah, Amelie Lens, Nastia, KiNK, Barker & Baumecker & many more – it all cements his reputation as one of The Council’s finest.

You can always count on Julien Brochard to craft a deep, moody churn before he unleashes the rhythmic assaults. So press play and enjoy the next 60 minutes as he takes you on a sonic journey, from full-bodied techno to flinty acid and raspy basslines that represents the act of resistance, before paving the way for an emotional catharsis.

Tracklist:

Monoloc - The Untold Way
Keith Carnal - Numerous
Violent - Rage For Order
Keith Carnal - Illusion
Alignment - Gravity
LaVal - No Hypocrisy
Electric Rescue - She Is ... (Original Mix)
W.LV.S - Misericordia (Original Mix)
Rabit - Tearz
LaVal - Our Turn
WLDERZ - Moments (Original Mix)
Marco Faraone - Over the Clouds (Original Mix)
Laurent Garnier - From The Crypt To The Astrofloor

DEEN

By Eileen Chan

DEEN

As we continue to grow, it brings us great joy to announce the latest addition to our roster of talents. DEEN may be a familiar face to many, starting first as a punter on the dance floor, before finding his way behind the decks to soundtrack many a hazy night at Headquarters and other events. A regular mainstay on the club’s programming, it was right in the cage at 66 Boat Quay where DEEN developed his brooding style of techno that is darkly affecting and strangely light all at once.

It wasn’t long before DEEN was sharing the stage with some of dance music’s brightest stars of the moment, including the likes of Charlotte de Witte, Reka, and Brassica to name just a few. If you’ve shared a night with the man himself, you’ll see how he can work the crowd into a hypnotic stomp with his sombre tones and introspective melodies, often taking the audience through a dizzying barrage of peaks and troughs, of tension and relief. And if you haven’t, press play and let this mix speak for itself. Enjoy the next 60 minutes with DEEN.

Tracklist:

Mata Telinga - Shadow Life (Kalasan Bulan Maret 2018)
Niclas Erlandsson - Altaibergen (Brothers Black Remix)
Par Grindvik - #demand (Original Mix)
