Myles Sergé [Calder City Development Corp. / (MS) / RE(FORM)]DJ - Travels from Grand Rapids, USA (flight share)
The enigmatic Myles Sergé is a low flying techno producer, hard working label head and old school DJ, however he prefers the term ‘reclusive perfectionist’. Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Myles experienced a temporary sojourn to the beachside of the the UK’s Brighton before relocating to Berlin. In some respects the American’s music bypasses the melodic classicalism of Detroit for a stripped-back European take on techno, though the mettlesome machine- funk of his raw style, and rough and ready prowess behind the decks, is never too far from the outer-regions of the US’ motorcity he calls home.
As a regular guest at Tresor, with no stranger to bookings at Berlin’s Berghain, Griessmuehle and ://about blank, to his residency at Steevio’s Freerotation festival in Wales, Myles is a shining example of how one can traverse the European-American transatlantic divide. With a belt of labels under his control - (MS), Re-Form, Dosed and Space - Myles has since moved on to count the likes of NYC’s Thema, The Zenker Brother’s Ilian Tape and Dan Curtin’s Metamorphic imprints as home for his music. Never one to boast, Myles Sergé Clark’s revised approach to the warehouse techno of his recent mixes and DJ sets keeps the quality underground.
