Absolute.

Absolute.

With hardcore support from Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Gerd Janson, Tiga and The Blessed Madonna, who correctly noted that he has “the hardest working hair in show business,” ABSOLUTE. has raised himself above the rabble of contemporary dance music with stone-cold hits “String Theory, “Papi’s Pumping Piano” & and an official remix of Kylie’s anthem of the decade ‘Padam Padam’ that will ensure free water in his green room for the rest of his life. As the London-based DJ/producer is a virtual lock to earn the kind of clout that will allow him to scrub the internet of all biographical detail, it seems wise to revisit his early days and career-to-date while we still can.

As a child, ABSOLUTE. was enthralled by dance music, to the extent that he took the money his father had given him to buy clothes and spent it on a single turntable. While initially furious, once his dad heard the music, he calmed down and said, “Son, that is a low-slung floor-filler, and I have no choice but to respect it.” Later, ABSOLUTE. honed his DJing skills by using the lone deck to beat-match to Pete Tong’s BBC Radio show, a fact that will take on eerie significance if you read this bio backwards.

A teenage ABSOLUTE. found his chosen family among club kids and drag queens in East London queer spaces, eventually going on to promote and curate spaces like these himself. "For whatever reason, the people in the queer scene hadn’t found liberation in pub trivia nights held at Wetherspoons breeding pits," he says. “So they had to create their own world instead. At this point, my politics are actually less progressive than the British Airways twitter account, so things seem to be moving in the right direction."

These experiences led to ABSOLUTE. to notice that queer spaces are largely dependent on the viability of human existence. As such, his nascent activist streak led him to sample climate icon Greta Thunberg on the track “Rave Against the Machine”, despite the fact that the 40-and-over conservatives who regularly challenge Thunberg to debate and/or wrestle on social media make up a huge part of the acid house market. The track led to a collaboration with the Extinction Rebellion collective, for whom ABSOLUTE. curated the “Rave Against the Machine” queer stage at the activists’ event in London. Unfortunately, the stage was promptly shut down by police. While many of the cops had no opinion on the political message, they were reportedly pissed that the event was overshadowing an after-hours the local station had been promoting.

To the extent that there is a habitable future for anyone at all, ABSOLUTE.’s is looking bright. With official remixes for icons Fever Ray and Tony De Vit, and a mass of original music including EPs on Shall Not Fade, DJ Haus’ Hot Haus, New York Queer stalwart Chrissy’s new label Maximum Airtime, a Radio 1 Essential Mix live from Glastonbury and named 6Music Mix of the Year by The Blessed Madonna and a recently completed fourth U.S. tour. “Whether my music helps inspire the advance of cold fusion technology or I end up DJing the Emerging Artists Stage of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, I’m going to keep bringing the same BIG NEON ENERGY intensity to everything I do. So the next time someone tells you there’s no absolutes, give them a knowing grin and say, 'There’s just one, honey. Just one.’

Review: Sometime Skint, Twin Tub and Hot Haus contributor ABSOLUTE makes his Shall Not Fade label debut via a five-track missive full-to bursting with energetic, mind-mangling club cuts. Bold electronic melodies, doom-laden 'Hoover' bass and breathless techno beats are the order of the day on 'Only Me', while 'In My Mind' wraps sharp, heavily edited rave riffs around another booming bassline and tribal techno drums. Title track 'Is It Raining In Berlin' sees him blend chunky house beats with deep bass and infectious melodic motifs, while 'So Good' is a booming, bassline-driven breakbeat house monster and 'Creeper' is a deep, ghostly and hypnotic house number that sprints along at a techno tempo.

Review: Next up from the Maximum Airtime crew, a pulsating four track display, jumping into Absolute with a fiery collection of new school garage heat. We begin with the bubbling sub rolls and choppy drum breaks of 'Don't Ya Want It', a vibrant introduction that is followed closely by the hardcore piano melodies and slightly faster drum shifts of 'Take You There'. Next, the title track 'Garage Queen' unloads a dizzying combination of sub warps and bouncing drums, with the more abstract percussive processing of Shaun J. Wright's remix in close pursuit. This is a very exciting collection that shows off a great range of styles.

TDV25 Remix EP 4 (Alan Fitzpatrick, ABSOLUTE.)
To The Limit (Alan Fitzpatrick extended remix) - (5:36) 150 BPM
I Don't Care (ABSOLUTE. We Still Don't Care extended remix) - (6:01) 142 BPM Hot
Review: To mark the 25th anniversary of Tony De Vit's untimely passing, Tidy Trax has commissioned a series of remixes of his classic tracks. This fourth edition features a remix of "To The Limit" by Alan Fitzpatrick. In some ways, Fitzpatrick is the spiritual heir to the iconic hard house DJ - and this reshape demonstrates why that is the case. The drums are tough and the claps dense, with Fitzpatrick effortlessly managing to meld these elements with soulful vocals and buzzing synths. ABSOLUTE goes in a different direction for his version of "I Don't Care". Led by a rolling rhythm and rasping percussion, the rave stabs come crashing in, another fitting tribute to De Vit's legacy.

Review: This third volume of the Twin Turbo compilation is a timely reminder of Turbo's consistency when it comes to delivering varied dance music. The TRACE7000 remix of Jakwob's "Feel So Good" is a pulsating, acidic track, while Kill Frenzy ups the intensity levels with the swampy electronics and ghetto jack of "Follow Me". In contrast, ANNA's "Artha" is a sleek affair, its linear rhythm supporting tranced out rhythms, while on "Build Up Your House", Hoshina Anniversary delivers a modern take on Chicago jack, with repetitive vocals underpinned by a grainy rhythm. Label owner Tiga also makes an appearance, with Dense & Pika delivering a techy take on his version of Public Enemy's "Louder Than A Bomb".
