Most DJs use their records as tools; for Mr Ties, they’re lumps of clay. He’ll smoosh them together in ways other DJs wouldn’t imagine—careening through techno, disco, pop and house, with the occasional acapella on the third turntable. He leaves no breakdown intact and stays busy on the filter and EQ. It’s the kind of DJ set that makes you lose track of which song is which, and you’re caught off guard when a fat kick drum comes out of nowhere. The crowd laps up every second of it. “When I first saw Mr Ties here, he played from 3 AM until 9 PM,” one regular told me on the dance floor. “There were many moments when it was so good I thought I might cry.”
Thrilled to have him play our Holger boat party tonight. If you’re interested in coming, scroll down for info.
