HOL lSL PROGRESSION The prog prince

They’re calling it a ‘Festival Closing Party', but let‘s face it, Progression‘s third August date has very little to do with the Fringe and a whole lot to do with getting a couple of cracking guests to light up a time of year that, in clubland at least, is often not quite as exciting as it could be. Dutch DJ and producer Sander Kleinenberg is a fine figure behind the decks, happy to keep it dark and dirty but never afraid to drop some eclecticism into the mix. His accomplice for the evening, meanwhile, has worked with Kylie and Bowie. wowed Miami’s Winter Music Conference and is slowly but surely hopping his way to the big time.

The Scumfrog released his debut album, Extended Engagement, last May. Tracks from it have already been played out by the likes of John Creamer and

‘I chose to gradually shift into the live performance thing' Scumfrog

Roger Sanchez. Jesse Houk, as he is otherwise known, plays a range of instruments on the double album, and he's incorporating more and more live elements into his DJ set. ‘I chose to gradually shift into the live performance thing, rather than switching from DJ set to live all of a sudden,’ he explains. ‘I still advertise and market myself as a DJ, but I incorporate more live stuff each month. Right now I play percussion and do vocals during the set, alongside the samples, 005 and vinyl.‘

Houk raves about the New York buzz (but complains about its music scene) and the business class beds on Singapore Airlines (‘da bomb', apparently). He sounds pretty keen about playing Progression too. ‘l‘ve always heard great stories about Edinburgh and the festival,‘ he says. ‘We‘ll have a blast.‘ (James Smart) I The L‘Uu’U Ron": r.‘ H " .'
