Select*Elect kick starts with Diynamic Label’s H.O.S.H and Elon…
After taking a break since their last two amazing nights where they hosted Dan Curtin and Catz N Dogz, Select*elect is back to kick of 2012. With H.O.S.H. & Elon, two heavy weights of the electronic music world scene, who have gravited far from London in the last year. Select*Elect keeps on providing to the hungry ears of the Londoners, the freshest vibes and hosting the best DJs in a hidden warehouse.
Of the Diynamic dinasty, a musical collective from Hamburg, H.O.S.H. is totally devoted to the 4/4 legacy, “music is the only constant thing in my life” he says. Infact he’s a 24/7 DJ, promoter and producer who honours the art of mixing by pushing it to the highest terms in front of enthusiastic crowds such as those of Watergate, Studio 80 or Ego in Hamburg.
H.O.S.H.’s skills are so sharpened and twirled with passion that there’s no surprise in listening to his words: “When it comes to producing, making music for me is like cooking – the meal – a track gets better the more love you put in”, And he’s loving it with all himself. That’s the attitude that drove him to release his tracks with some of the best labels such as Kindisch, Get Physical, Supernature, Freerange, Strictly Rhythm and Tsuba. Then came the album, “Connceting The Dots”, released a year ago but still burning on the turntables, featuring Mistress Barbara, Ost & Kjex, mingled with Moog grooves and housy basslines. When he’s not on stage H.O.S.H. Promotes and organizes The Gru_nanlage Festivals, a series of electronic dance marathons held for free in northern Germany every summer. Just in case you haven’t danced enough during the year.

Coming from Israel, flying to New York and landing in London, Elon is a guy fueled by a deep passion for the freshest underground techno sounds. He’s a three in one man show: a DJ, producer and nightlife visionary who strongly influenced NYC electronic music scene, since he made his first steps in the Big Apple in 2000.
Resident DJ for the Resolute Collective, active member of Clink Recordings and Dumb-Unit posse, he landed on the turntable after sharpening his skills with musical instruments and sound engineering. Sharp eye for detail, fresh attitude, underground roots and hard work, shaken all together produced a series of successful releases branded Elon: from his first EP “Colombian”, to his 2011 work “The Time”, he hasn’t missed a single target and he’s worked for the most important underground labels such as Apparel Music, Infant, Sleaze Records and Metroline.
Elon’s work is receiving great support with many saying he’s rocking great… as Jeremy P. Caulfield and Maceo Plex aka Maetrik can confirm after having collaborated with him.
Warming things up nicely will be a double set provided by Pablo Rancat and Select*Elect resident Spielkamerad. Pablo first landed in Hackney from Argentina with a luggage full of deep underground disco house vibes, after years spent as a vocalist in an experimental band pumped with drum machines and heavy riffs. Once in London he fastly established himself as one of the most interesting DJs playing at underground parties such as Exstatic Sounds and in clubs like Ministry of Sound, The End and Acquarium. Spielkamerad came to London to study Music Business Management and couldn’t succeed in staying away from the nightlife, which he already enjoyed in his home, Berlin. So he stepped into DJing and last summer he was one of the five finalists at the Mixmag + The Nest’s DJ Competition, with his tech-house flavoured with nu-disco.
