“The groove, the flow, the vibe, the energy, all these words sound generic untill put to the test. The first law of thermodynamics states that the change in the internal energy of a closed system is equal to the amount of heat supplied
to the system.
It translates to the dj-sets of Sweatshop: their performance seems to generate so much heat that it goes everywhere, into the set, out onto the dancefloor, via the legs, the body, into the mind.
This makes Sweatshop the opposite of many screengazing dj's: they can not keep still, they couldn't escape the rhythm if they wanted to. It makes them do mischievious little dances, go off their rockers and climb the dj-booth or even join the crowd on the dancefloor to share the fun.
With a combined 40+ years of dj- experience Alan & Mike know all about the right record at the right time, about mixing up musical genres, the necessity to get the most out of the moment. They know when to add some ice cubes and when to bring out the fireworks, they do this because the music says so.”
