D.K.S. aka Dokser:

Javier Dokser is real name for famous argentinian House producer D.K.S. He is one of the most talented producers to come out from south america. Check Luxury Grooves & www.dokser.com.ar.

Reviewers and critics with a penchant for noisy denigration of electronic

music often point out the common, collage-like triviality of this genre.

Conscious of this fact, Dokser knows that a poorly elaborated mix often

sounds unappealing and is not even complex, but merely chaotic. As an

omnivorous hunter of styles and an irreverent mocker by nature, he eludes

traditional attempts to pigeonhole his ideas. He likes nothing better than

putting aside the given heritage and working out his own artistic


How things work. What gives them their shapes, their brightness, or the

sudden clash when they break. Since he remembers, Dokser has explored the

methodic mazes of curiosity with a screwdriver. He infringes all sorts of

appliances with an intense trespassing drive that is only alarming for

people who can only conceive of the manufacturer's original designs.

Gullible customers.

Instead, Dokser infuses us with the belief that disassembled parts are

themselves tools to work with. Like other collectors, he arrays dissimilar

objects; unlike them, he does not confine his acquisitions to impervious

glass cabinets, but organizes them in new configurations.

His music thrives in continuously yet delicately contravening the rules. As

time passes, lose traits are rearranged, attenuated or confirmed, in order

to convey the certainty of a mood. Or the uncertainty: a wink here, a nudge

there, an innuendo of folk references, popular music quotes or unexpected

melodies which briefly startle the listener.

The experience of acknowledging a tune in the remix, far from kitsch or

cinical, is a documentary record of our shared culture. The astonished mind

takes part in the flow of music, while the body absorbs it. Communication

finds its way, and rocks.

On a more personal note, Dokser is happily single. Those who know him think

that Time has somewhat changed him. The clever, reckless adolescent has

become a clever, reckless young man. However, he now has a goal: to find

loonies of his kind, with matching ideas.

Irretrievably 'porteño', he still chooses to live in Buenos Aires. He

rejects with similar stubborness the illusions of dispair and escapism: he

is busy creating. Go ahead, envy him.
