Medicine Wheel. the Sub Club. Glasgow. Fri 8 Aug
Rub-A-Dub Records has a simple remit with Medicine Wheel: big name guests with a difference. And, as if to prove it, up rocks ex-Deee-Lite member Supa DJ Dmitry, making his Glasgow debut. By a strange twist of Clubland fate, it’s just weeks after Deee-Lite’s platformtastic former frontwoman, Lady Miss
Kier, did the same.
Born in Soviet-era Ukraine, Dmitry was parachuted directly into dance music’s nativity scene when his parents defected to New York in 1981. Starting out with a set of decks but no table for them, he progressed from Danceteria elevator operator to regular DJ at NYC hotspots like the Shelter and Pyramid where house and hip-hop were brought kicking and breaking into the world. Then came the self-described ‘holographic house groove band', Deee-Lite and, of course, the monster crossover hit ‘Groove is in the Heart’.
But that’s all history. Since the group disbanded in 1995, Dmitry has abandoned their definitive brand of kitsch house in favour of an altogether heavier mix, one that’s placed him top of the remix list for artists as diverse as Sinead O’Connor and Q-Tip, and was crowned DJ of the Year in 1998.
‘I really believe in mixing a lot of different styles of music. I love techno, I love house, I love electro. It’s pretty floor-stomping music,’ he says of his sets. “This back-to-the-BOs trend is actually a little disturbing to me. It’s a bit boring; we already lived through that. Electronic music is not about safety, it’s about innovation and moving forward and the future.’ (Rose Parfitt)
