The Sweatbox on 28 April is very special for two reasons: For one, organisers Art Xtreme Media turns 3 and secondly they’ve invited award winning, tech house/deep tech extraordinaire, Dennis Cruz (Muse, Snatch!, Toolroom, Solid Grooves, Spain) for his KL debut.
With support from residents OtherKind, Obadius and Meliha, this Sweatbox encompasses everything that Art Xtreme Media is and stands for: a community of like-minded people, in love with life and non-mainstream music. People with great music taste and discerning minds who come together, let go of their worries and have a party to remember, people of all ages, nationalities, religions who love their love for the music industry and everything music represents.
When Art Xtreme Media started 3 years ago it was a mere idea and a small pea in a pod of hope for their music events in Asia. Now their brainchild has grown to become a crew of lovely people as passionate or even more so than when they started. The concept has gathered lovely people who forged ideas, spent sleepless nights and worked tirelessly to deliver quality events. Now, Art Xtreme Media prides itself for the family they created and the hurdles they have conquered together. The Sweatbox, Taboo, Off The Record, their current club nights, and the new Sweatbox Records are a testament of great fun and simple passion for anything musical.
Dennis Cruz is one of the pillars of the underground house and tech community. At 17 years old Dennis started DJing whilst also studying sound engineering. In his 20s, he had already worked with several hip hop artists and rock bands in the studio with their production.
As a DJ and producer, he is truly setting trends with his fresh sounds and, off the back of his busiest year yet, he has plenty more in store for the world. The Spaniard is never far away from the top of the charts thanks to his high rate of release on labels like Snatch!, Solid Grooves, Suara, Lemon-Aid and Suruba X. For his work, he has picked up many awards and nominations from being Beatport’s 3rd Best Tech House Artist to Resident Advisor’s 2nd Most Charted Artist of 2016.
Always serving up dancing dynamite, he has found favour with big hitters like Jamie Jones and Joseph Capriati, Roger Sanchez and Marco Carola. As a DJ, too, Dennis always plots exciting musical journeys that make people feel real emotions as they dance the night away. He has woven together his wide musical influences and slick mix of styles all over Europe from Greece to the UK, across North and South America, Russia and all over Australia.
