It’s somehow satisfying when scenes collide. Dutch producer Remy Verheijen made everything from driving trance to quirky rock during the ’90s, but settled on a sound—electro—and a name—Dexter—at the turn of the millennium. Looking back to his early releases on Clone and Klakson, the label he ran alongside Ostgut’s Steffi, it’s easy to hear why bass music figures such as Boddika and Bok Bok are still playing his music. There’s something about Dexter’s elastic basslines and sense of funk that dovetails neatly with what’s going on in the UK these days. Or it could simply be the timeless nature of electro itself. Who knows? Dexter appeared to return the nod from the UK earlier this year with the release of “Great Northern Diver,” a track that through its warp-speed vocals and hyper-kinetic rhythms felt decidedly south London circa-2011.
As he explains below, though, the man himself just sees this as the continuation of a sound he’s been pushing for over ten years. Plenty of UK names make it on to his mix for us, along with fellow electro adopters from his homeland and original innovators from Detroit.
