After the stunning party in October with Âme, Just This is back in Copenhagen at Pumpehuset, with the number one himself: Dixon.
When Dixon entered the Berlin club circuit in the early 90’s, he established his name on the strength of djing. Back then, confidence or experience based on putting out mixes in the internet did not matter as much as it does now. You had to do your practice, of course, but when your thing was good and tight enough to take it to the clubs, there were opportunities to do so. But those opportunities meant responsibilities. A residency did not mean playing the same club every once in a while, it meant playing the same club every week. The crowd did not consist of people that wander in and out of club nights and its guest djs as the weekly hype commanded them, it consisted of people which headed straight to a certain club night because they were sure its resident dj would deliver the goods this week as he did last week, and the next weeks to come. As long as that happened, there was no need to move on. You made your decision to return out of good experience and you stuck to it as long as it lasted.
In such a context, there is no way to learn quicker how to become a very good dj than by making people dance throughout a set that lasts the whole night, on a very regular basis. If you can’t hold the crowd for hours then, you fall through. It is learning by doing, the hard way. Dixon did not only learn very quickly, he loved every moment of it. Starting out low, slow, unfolding the flow, working towards a peak, then working towards another, turning up, turning down, to find the exact point from which to swing moods, to find the perfect way to end what should be a lasting experience. Once you passed your exams in the night club school of that era with distinction, you can rely on it forevermore, and Dixon surely did. His residencies then and now are obviously schooled on the stylistic and technical versatility and skills, attitude, stamina and experience based on countless nights honing ways to direct a loyal crowd on the dance floor at will. Hours spent to find and select the right music to achieve the levels of intensity necessary, hours spent to plan the imminent night’s structure and proceedings, and then hours spent putting it into action. Dixon was always more than happy to spend this much time on his nights, because he takes his profession seriously. It is exactly what matters most to him. He has always been and he always will be a dj first. This is the mission he embarked on, no end in sight.
It started in 2010 with the “Just This” parties. Hunter/Game’s own party, held in secret locations round the city, Just This has made Milan a compulsory stop for the touring electronic artist – from early shows that focused on local acts like Mind Against and Tale Of Us, growing to far bigger events with names like Dixon, Seth Troxler, Koze, Tennis and other DJs in Hunter/Game’s worldwide scene. And alongside the parties, the duo have released on Innervisions, Rumours, Last Night on Earth, My Favourite Robot, Hot Creations and Diynamic – with a Kompakt release in early 2015 – and each EP has earned more fans for their lush, deep-grooved analogue soundscapes.
As music is research, Pisetzky loves to get deep into bass lines of different sound dimensions.His style is always powerful and melancholic, moving hearts and minds into multi layered soundscapes.
With background as Sound Designer for the Fashion industry, he started the Pisetzky project in the end of 2014 and proved his musical research and talent in the main worldwide events: La Plaza of Poble Espanyol during the Off Sonar week, Innervisions, ADE (Holland), Barrakud Festival (Croatia & Greece), Amore Festival (Rome), BPM Festival (Mexico), Zur Wilden Renate (Berlin), Voltage Festival (Belgium), Guggenheim Museum (Bilbao), Space (Ibiza), and he also entered in the summer lineup of Cocoon in Spain and became the resident of Social Music City.
As producer he released in 2015 his own EP on Just This which has been played and supported by all the biggest djs. Recently he released a collaboration track with Hunter/Game on Last Night on Earth, which also broke all the top charts.
In 2016 his EP Elevation became quickly a dancefloor anthem, with the track Adria arrived 1st on Resident Advisor Chart. Lately he released an original track with the Dutchman Tom Trago, Perù and a more club one on the second part of Just This Various Artist, called ‘’Self Dimension’’
In the darkness of his studio, on the hottest dancefloors, Pisetzky shakes souls and bodies deeply with his dogged rhythms.
