SGurvin has been flirting with that opaque border between club-music and art-happening across records and appearances over the last few years. His music is hard to pin down, thwarting traditional classifications and refusing to observe trend-informed landscapes. After an early career in Hip Hop and the avant garde, he found his voice as SGurvin with a slew of releases for the likes of Mhost Likely and Full Pupp, defining his sound on the fringes of the club floor, towards peak time.
His DJ sets are a hybrid collage of original recorded material, re-assembled through a set of CDJs and presented with the perfunctory pursuit towards a dance floor.
After we had unexpectedly cancelled his last appearance, we asked SGurvin back into the booth in a sweltering night in July. Opening the basement ahead of Lara Palmer on a Frædag, SGurvin presented a heady narrative from its murky ambient beginnings to the peak pleasure. Topping out around 145BPM, the artist, producer and DJ covered a vast expressive palette through the course of the night, with an ardent crowd reciprocating in kind.
We’re pleased to present part of this recorded set today.
