MADE WITH LOVE BY DAIRMOUNT & NOWAKOWSKI
A&R BY DAIRMOUNT
After an acclaimed serie of remixes on labels like Freerange, Fresh Meat, Composite & Komplex De Deep in 2011, Dairmount is back on his own imprint with Dust Devil. Recorded this summer between Gothenburg & Berlin with Nowakowski, the Swedish hotshot of the label, Dust Devil emphasized strongly Dairmount's love for House music infused of Hip Hop attitude. The motto is clear : reduced number of elements, samples only, maximum impact. Dairmount, who has always been strongly influenced by Hip Hop production techniques, had lots of fun to collaborate with Nowakowski, another strong Hip Hop influenced tweaker.
Following a busy dj schedule that brought him in the last 18 months across Scandinavia, US, Turkey, France, Holland & Latvia between others, Dairmount is the true soul & ambassador of the label that he created in 2009.
Collecting records since his childhood, he slowly discovered the world of spinning with his early Hip Hop heroes such as Dj Premier & Pete Rock, early records of Acid house and the versatility of Gilles Peterson’s Talkin Loud imprint. As a result of this, he immersed himself in the deepness of the Black music history : Jazz, Latin , Hip Hop, Detroit Techno, House and Afro Funk entered his record collection.
In the nineties, he quickly built himself a solid reputation in the underground club circuit that granted him to play at several major events in Benelux including the famous Eskimo nights (before it became a famous label) or big festivals as Dour, 10 Days Off or Axion Beach and extended his dj trips across Europe & overseas alongside prestigious spinners such as Kevin Saunderson, Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, Rainer Trüby, Derrick May, Mad Mats, Dimitri from Paris, Fred Everything, King Britt, Kirk Di Giorgio, Jimpster or 4hero and opened concerts for performers like Herbie Hancock and St Germain. He also proudly represented Belgium at the 2nd edition of the now world reknown Red Bull Music Academy held in 99 in Berlin.
Dairmount contributed during 8 years as one of the main editors of the respected Plastiks magazine in Belgium before founding in 2003 metronomic-family.com, a web portal as a means to share his musical beliefs with a worldwide audience. Overwhelmed by positive feedback of hungry music lovers worldwide, the site managed to create a prolific discovery factor that contributed many upcoming artists & underground labels to reach a wider audience.
Known by many as a “man of challenge & initiative”, he moved from his native Brussels in 1999 to explore other countries leading him to live a transatlantic passion for Montreal (where he managed & restyled the legendary Primitive record shop) and landed in Hamburg in 2003. Actively taking part to future developments of the ever-changing music industry, Phil took part to the digital revolution in its early steps and became in 2004 (till present) A&R and label manager of respected labels such as Trusme’s Prime Numbers, Gerd’s 4Lux Black, Soulphiction’s Philpot, Jazzanova’s Sonar Kollektiv, Jimpster’s Freerange, Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature and many others inside the team of the respected digital indie Finetunes.
Besides his dedication & work for others, Phil stepped in the studio in 2005 to give birth to his early production projects such as Smiles Ahead (with David Alexander) & Petter & Dairmount (with Ralf Petter) which resulted in remix works for artists as diverse as “ex-Beanfield” Sandboy, swedish prodigies Hird & Yukimi Nagano (from Little Dragon fame) & NYC’s producer Moses McClean on labels like Hinterland (Ger), DNM (Swe) and Still Music (US). With great encouragements and plays from luminaries as Jimpster, Atjazz, Laurent Garnier, Mr Scruff, Sasse or Jazzanova, he caught the virus trying more and more to escape his busy schedule to push his production skills.
This led Phil to become Dairmount, his new identity & production moniker and to create his own production unit with his long time friend Marino Berardi (known as Dairmount & Berardi, today on hold) & to the accomplishment of his long time dream, the launch of his own label, Room With A View, in April 2009.
