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.
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.
