Astral People are proud to present the glorious return of genre spanning mastermind, Damiano Von Erckert. In addition to playing a Glamorama day party in Melbourne, Damiano will headline an intimate evening presented by BACARDĺ Fuego Revolutions in Sydney, which aims to celebrate the craft and heritage of analogue music culture.
Hailing from Germanys Ruhrgebiet district, Damiano von Erckert represents a growing breed of artists not bound by genre specific constraints. love for the golden era of 70’s, 80’s and 90’s House, Techno, Disco, Soul and Afro clearly resonates through his production output and he is quick to credit the likes of Stax, Blue Note, Strictly Rhythm and KDJ as key influences. His ability to reach back, relish and recreate classic elements, diverting away perhaps from traditional house orientated means, really enhances the authenticity, originality and positivity of his sound that is now starting to gain notoriety amongst his peers.
Damiano’s label AVA. Records, began back in 2011 which is now in full swing and already working alongside the likes of Lowtec, Tito Wun aka Twit One, Retrogott, Hulk Hodn, Max Graef, MCDE, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Andy Vaz, Christopher Rau and Funkycan aka Am Kinem, AVA. has a strong desire to build a platform from which it can pay tribute to contemporary club music and having initially compiled what is surely the first real prominent house and techno collective in Cologne.
