Corvin Dalek is a pioneering electronic music producer and DJ.
Born and bred in beautiful Budapest, young Corvin Dalek has come a long way.
He’s had his fingers in all the pies, so to speak, plying his trade as a DJ, Producer-Remixer, Designer and Promoter. It was in 1999 that Corvin started to make a name for himself, co-producing and mixing with Mark Reeder and Chris Zippel the seminal ‘E for Europe’ Compilation, which won rave reviews for its inventiveness and humour.
In the following years, he was asked to mix several Compilations for MFS (Lovetoys, Stadtansichten, Hotkunst, Wet&Hard…).
The beginning of 2000’s saw Corvin taking up residency at the notorious Excess club in Kreuzberg and was also resident DJ for the legendary MFS-Nights at the original Tresor and in 2001 he became a resident at The Gallery at London’s Turnmills club, as well as Godskitchen, Promise and The Arches in Glasgow and in 2003, at the KitKat Club for Insomnia. He performed as a headliner for the Creamfields Festivals in UK, Czech Republic and Poland, and played on the Loveparade’s in Berlin, Mexico City and San Francisco.
Dalek’s hip-thrusting drums and powerfully pumping basslines added fuel to the fires of the frisky Fritz and encouraged the return of the infamous decadent Berlin scene, with Wet & Hard as its soundtrack.
Together with Mark Reeder, Corvin established the MFS sub-label Flesh, which they created to concentrate on exploring new music mainly from the Eastern European underground during the early 2000’s.
Corvin has remixed artists, like New Order, Faithless, Shannon, Dr. Motte & 3Phase, Blank&Jones, Mismoplastico, Da Hool, to name the major few and he has collaborated with Bernard Sumner (New Order) for a vinyl single for the original version of Crystal.
In 2003, Corvin produced togther with Mark Reeder his first Album, the ultimate Wet & Hard definition, entitled I am a Dalek (MFS/Flesh).
In 2009, Corvin founded the internet label Fummelerum Company and produced his studio projects Smoky Mirror, 3ToN and End Of The Worlds.
In 2014, Factory Benelux finally released Corvin’s Original demo version of Crystal featuring Bernard Sumner, on Mark Reeder‘s Collaborator album.
The Wet & Hard scene has slowly spread across the Globe and its message is more important than ever. Naturally, it was inevitable that this crazy Hungarian with the sci-fi surname decided to return to make a further impact on international dance music scene.
