“Dark, filthy and befitting any big room you’d trek miles out of town to on the unholy side of 3am, nevertheless, if there’s one thing that stands out about Dezz, it’s his crazy level of confidence – he looks like he was born behind the decks. His powerful pounding house, trippy minimal, and mind-bending progressive and techno selections as “raw, dirty and fresh”, which goes to show where determination can get you.” (Juice Magazine)
