I first got in to making music when I was fifteen, two of my friends had a band and needed a bass player. I didn’t have a bass for the first few practices, but once I’d raised enough for an old Aria Pro 2 pointy headstock bass my family agreed to buy me a small amp and off I went.

 

We wrote our own material, mainly rocky stuff (our demo got reviewed in Kerrang!), but most of what we did was covers.

 

Gradually I got into other types of music than the LA rock scene, and started listening to grunge, alternative and the indie scene. I was a bit snobbish about dance music all those years ago, but gradually I ‘got it’, and got into Future Sound of London, Orbital, Underworld and all of the other UK electronica of the late 90s.

 

I originally started making my own tunes using an old Ensoniq ESQ-1 (I still use it to this day as a controller keyboard), a borrowed DR-5 drum machine and a dodgy rack mount delay that seemed to have a mind of its own.

 

Eventually I upgraded to a computer, a 200mhz machine that could handle Fruity Loops and Sound Forge. I made my first album on this way back in 2002.

 

Around 2004 I wrote off my car in a crash, and used the insurance money to buy a lovely fast PC (a good decision, the world is a safer place without me driving in it) that could easily run Cubase and a load of plug ins. This is when I started recording as Kalabi, and in 2005 I had my first track released with the help of local producer and friend James Bright.

 

Since then I’ve released tracks all round the world, been ripped off by a German label with my first official album, sold tracks to United Airlines and Swedish airports, and got myself a credit on IMDB as a composer for a short film.

 

I also currently play bass in three local bands and produce two local songwriters.

 

Sadly, I don’t currently make enough from my music to not have to work, so on top of everything else I work five days a week as web programmer. My main goal is to make enough from music to be able to do it full time.

DJ Zevzek is set to release the “Dis Duzzit CD!
Europe’s famous Disc Jockey (DJ) spinner known as DJ Zevzek has released his very own full length album, “Dis Duzzit.” The full-length album is filled with fourteen (14) original sound recordings and musical works of almost an hour and a half worth of constant grooves, making for a extensive mix of electronic and house material. It is being released with Rewired Records. The album is entitled, “Dis Duzzit” and the album name is also a song named on the jazzy and groovy full length CD, and it is representative of one of the better types of traditional beats on a long form CD that has been released in a very long time.

DJ Zevzek is a European who's parents had fled the one time communist ruled Romania and he was eventually allowed to follow them which is where he learned to spin, mix and DJ. Referred to as a so called perfectionist DJ and 'spinner' “DJ Zevzek,” has been a quintessential house-music DJ since the very inception of the overall sound ad genre. “I, myself, have been influenced by some of the most innovative DJs from all over the world,” he (DJ Zevzek) says, his “influences are” wide and obscure calling on the likes of “Couleur 3 and Dr.Silk Sal, ” to help build on his grooving and colorful style.

This overall style was also built while using SL1200 turntables, a Korg Polisix and a TR606 drum box on the four track recorder he had used since he started spinning professionally in his career. But today, he is considered to be a modern styled DJ during live performances. His brand new CD (Dis Duzzit) is a high-quality and driving album that is pristine sounding from the first song to last song ('Hyperdiamonds') that is also the first single being released around the world. This collection is a work of art that is perfect for fans of DJ work and house music.

The new release, “Dis Duzzit,” showcases the DJ's influences bringing the beats and sounds together from albums and songs he grew up playing and listening to for a long time. On the new CD being released at Rewired (Records), is a touch of the old school coupled with the new and modern day sounds that are seamlessly blended. The brand new CD is a fresh batch of songs influenced by an old tradition, by mixing in his own influences making up this brand-new, 2015 release. His career as a DJ began while listening to 'pirate radio' on the French border and he (DJ Zevzek) says that the those sounds were “very funky electronic cuts” such as songs like 'Back to Mono' and while listening to the Dr. Silk Sal's radio program on pirate radio, led him showing up to visit him (Dr. Silk Sal) at the station and at his Petit Saconnex penthouse apartment which is where he discovered the SL1200 turntables that he says had “custom arms and styluses.” Dr. Silk Sal allowed the young DJ to scratch, mix, cut, drop tracks which soon gave him (DJ Zevzek) this musical and rhythm sound and in no time at all, the new DJ started making remixes of popular club songs using a capella, dub and instrumental versions. Soon after that, he (DJ Zevzek) started playing out live at places like Club 58 becoming their resident DJ. He then toured around the world playing everywhere in Europe and in major cities like Vancouver doing raves and after hours clubs while also producing and mixing original dance tracks for all out Roland jams along with live scratching and dubbing at the jam sessions and all nighters.

The popular DJ was also doing work for EA (Entertainment Arts) with songs now on the Quake 3 and NHL 98 production and games and the DJ has done work for the Frontline Assembly, a popular industrial group. “His album is a real, angelic sound of dance music that is a grooving, funky jazzy and wide opened free style set of music,” says Don Lichterman, the head of Rewired about this new LP set to hit stores on March 31, 2015. “It shows the world a great vibe on the entire CD and honestly, it takes me back to when I was doing the club scene in San Francisco, Philly (Philadelphia) and in New York City back in the mid ’90s. The DJ Zevzek then says about his new and debut CD with the Rewired label that this “new collection of dance tracks touches upon soul, funk, gospel and disco while remaining minimal, trippy and spacey.”

(Don) Lichterman also says about DJ Zevzek that he is “a customarily hard working man that believes that the sound of his (DJ Zevzek) music laid down on this full length fourteen (14) song CD will be a staple in this format and style which is very niche, yet also very popular with music fans from all around the world” and that “he considers the consistent and positive reaction of his fan base, this as DJ that will be around forever.”
“Dis Duzzit” by DJ Zevzek is available to stream online worldwide today, and the downloads and physical CD is available in stores that sell music on March 31st. Anyone can listen now and all fans of beats and dance music will be able to get the full length CD soon.
