FACT mix 153: Peter Van Hoesen

Arguably the most exciting thing to come out of Brussels since JCVD, Peter Van Hoesen debuted in 2006 with the Increments EP on Berlin’s Lan Muzic label, but over the past four years has moved away from the minimal sound associated with that label and instead cultivated his own deep but reliably bolshy techno style. This applies to his DJing as well: much to FACT’s delight, he’s a selector unafraid to explore higher BPMs and revel in the intensification of funk that they bring. At the risk of sounding like a middle-aged man in an Underground Resistance hoodie, this is proper techno we’re dealing with.
