New York producer Justin Van Der Volgen, formerly part of disco punk outfits !!! (Chk Chk Chk) and Out Hud, will perform at Soft & Slow on Friday November 15 at The Spice Cellar.
Van Der Volgen has dropped remixes on Golf Channel, Warp Records and Blackdisco, while his 2009 mix CD, Try To Find Me Vol. 2, garnered praise from many a discerning critic and distilled Van Der Volgen’s DJ sensibility, traversing cuts from the likes of Eric Duncan, Francois K and DJ Shadow. Since leaving the groups he founded, Van Der Volgen has focused on disco edits and remixes on labels such as ESP Institute. He’s also released under the moniker of TBD with Lee Douglas. “I started in those bands a little bit before I turned 20 and I met most of them in the punk scene when I was a teenager, so they were some of the people I grew up with,” Van Der Volgen told BRAG’s sister publication Beat. “Out Hud ended when it was time, and I left !!! (Chk Chk Chk) when I felt it was right.”
Local producer Jamie Lloyd, who has been remixed by Matthew Herbert, Mark E and Jazzanova’s Alex Barck, heads up the support DJs.
