Part of the All Ears takeover
Drvg Cvltvre has been around since 2009 but the man behind it, Vincent Koreman, has been producing for years. Born in a village called Dongen in the Netherlands in 1972, Koreman has released under a plethora of aliases, trying his hand at a number of genres. The most prolific of these initially was his electro alias RA-X under which he started releasing in 1994. Since then, his music has been filed under industrial, IDM and even hip-hop, culminating in his present focus; his Drvg Cvltvre alias.
Drvg Cvltvre’s output is a blend of experimental dark techno and deep house, with a sprinkling of acid. One of his main traits is to dial the tempo down a notch so that the individual elements of the tracks can push through its percussive foundations. The resulting material is hard hitting and melodic, combining his extensive production experience with his punk and black metal background – scintillating stuff.
Recently, he’s been concentrating on his label New York Haunted. With a somewhat relentless release schedule, it saw 17(!) releases pushed through this year and is a goldmine for all things electro, techno and noise.
Probably related to the raucous nature of the music he loves and releases, Koreman is one of the main supporters of our All Ears Campaign. He suffers tinnitus to the extent that he no longer masters records due to not being able to listen to higher frequencies as well as he would like, and also suffers from sleeping problems. His main advice is to make sure your ears are rested properly and to wear earplugs when you go out.
We’re delighted to have Drvg Cvltvre as one of our supporters. Here, he kicks off our Tracks Of The Day takeover with his “tracks for tired ears”.
