This Week on the Decks: Dubfire
P.S. Last year Dubfire & Richie Hawtin did a special surprise b2b set at Kool Beach Club - you never know what's going to happen at BPM. Lots of surprises in store!!!
VIBE: What can we expect from your performance at BPM Fest?
Dubfire: Throughout the summer and especially recently, I've been fortunate enough to have discovered and signed some incredible music by a variety of new and established artists from around the world so my set will be sprinkled with many forthcoming releases on my SCI+TEC imprint. Our release schedule is full till the end of 2013 so their won't be a shortage of unreleased music on this special night!
Which act are you most looking forward to catching if you have time? Why?
I try to check as many of my friends and colleagues as I can but this year, I'm going to make a special effort to see Sven, Luciano and Kenny & Louie (Masters at Work) as they are BPM first-timers.
BPM Festival means: (INSERT THREE WORDS)!
IBIZA IN MEXICO!
Best reason you can think of for going to the BPM Festival 2013?
Besides the music, the fans and seeing all my friends again? The Mexican food and time off!
Tips to surviving all the parties for BPM Festival first-timers?
PACE YOURSELF! There are A LOT of daytime and nighttime events, as well as lot's of after parties sprinkled in between. So eat healthy, make sure to get enough sleep, drink and party in moderation and make sure to pick your "battles"!
Latest or upcoming release we should pay attention to?
I did what started out as a simple re-edit which turned into a rework of a song called "Plex" by Harvard Bass which, along with a new mix CD I've done called 'A Transmission', will be out on Christmas eve.
