Sound Clash: Alex Barck vs Marc Vedo

One’s from Berlin, the other from Bristol; one drops deep rooted house, the other funky and euphoric sets; one’s a legend, the other an up-and-comer. But both these DJs represent the sound of the future, says I-S.
Alex Barck
Who: Part of the iconic six-man group Jazzanova, Berlin native Alex Barck has been spreading the group’s jazz-influenced dance music for more than a decade. With fans like Gilles Peterson acknowledging their innovative sound and meticulous production, trust Barck to carry the flag of tomorrow’s sound with his incredible DJ sets.
Music: Soul, funk and afro-rhythm tunes are on the cards and Barck’s distinct sounds are represented in deep-rooted grooves and beats. Focusing more on the organic side of music with raw percussion and succinct bass-lines, Barck’s known to work the crowd into a frenzy with his progressive mixes.
Crowd: Expect hip-shaking hipsters, Champagne twirlers and chronically fashionable types.
DISCO:VERY with Alex Barck of Jazzanova and Jeremy Boon is on Mar 4, 10pm. Velvet Underground, 17 Jiak Kim St., 6738-2988. $28-35 includes two drinks
Marc Vedo
Who: The up-and-coming Portuguese-English DJ, producer and promoter hailing from Bristol has helmed the decks at leading clubs around the world.

At only 26-years-old, he has already bagged 10 years of DJing experience.
Music: Eclectic choice cuts of danceable favorites from house to trance. Whatever his essential selection is going to be, expect to dance till your shoes come off.
