No rest for the folks who ran Eleven
Hallowed Nishi-Azabu club Eleven may have closed, but the folks who ran it are still busy bringing dance music to Japan. This weekend they host a one-off night at Unit featuring veteran US DJ DVS1 (“Devious One,” get it?). The Minneapolis-based artist is known in the Midwest for his Hush parties that draw on a 10,000-strong vinyl collection, and of late he’s been getting a worldwide rep for his simple, elegant productions as well. No less than Detroit techno avatar Derrick May has taken him under his wing, releasing DVS1 tracks on his newly revived Transmat label. Alongside him will be DJ Nobu, who brought the house down at Eleven’s closing party in May.
