Dustin Evans aka Textasy, a Dallas native, an up and coming musical savant whose new world sound has made an impression on the techno scene with strong traction growing internationally. Since relocating to Berlin a few years back, he has pushed the envelope of conventional electronic music by drawing on youthful obsessions with Miami bass, Ghetto-tech and UK Rave culture, and cross pollenating these genres creating a new futuristic branch of bass music that is all his own.
It is plain to see why Textasy is currently sitting atop an enigmatic pedestal and receiving huge praise for his explosive productions and gut-busting live experience. His deep appreciation of dance music combined with a necessity for raw and powerful beats aiming straight for the jugular makes his live sets incomparable to fellow DJs. For those tired of the commerciality that has become techno, Evans’ hybrid material is the energetic sound of the future.
A flurry of EPs released on E-Beamz, Craigie Knowes and Natural Sciences pays homage to his versatility of mixes show casing his talent in creating an easy fluidity between genres while simultaneously redefining them at the same time. Further evidence of his extensive creativity; Textasy also runs his label FTP (FreiTanzPlatten), a label which has developed a cult following since the few years of its inception, whose sound of production and style of mixing has proliferated across the club spectrum. Through which his ‘no genre restrictions’ policy also reverberates the rarely trodden path of what is considered the ‘purist ghettotech’ route, all whilst surfing the wave of breakneck electro championed by the likes of DJ Stingray, Nina Kravitz and many others adopting his new sound into current mixes.
His unique soundtrack is one that has him currently placed as one of the finest recent hardcore producers. With his brave sound challenging current trends, he is charting a course through previously unexplored territory whilst simultaneously deprogramming culture and creating a foothold in the industry with fan base destined to grow and thrive.
