Pjotr + Dense & Pika

For the very last evening of September Pjotr will visit Gallery 2.35:1 for the first time this season. His entourage this night will be Boiler Room sensation Dense & Pike AKA Glimpse and Alex Jones that will play an exclusive live-set.

Emerging mid-2011 with a series of handstamped white-label releases, Dense & Pika have since become a must-check facet of true, modern underground techno. Covetted by the likes of Blawan, DJ Koze, Jackmaster, Sven Vath and Scuba with the latter signing the duo up for a series of 12″s for his Hot Flush imprint, Dense & Pika’s output has garned such support that a step into the live performance in the second half of 2012 is a highly anticipated move.

Being a resident DJ at Stockholm’s infamous Berns 2.35:1 club as well as holding his own night Under Bron, it is almost an understatement to say that Pjotr is “well known” on the Swedish scene – during the years he has been fortunate to play alongside some amazing artists like Kassem Mosse, Aérea Negrot, Discodromo and several people from the Ostgut Ton stable, to name a few.

Born and bred in Sweden with Ukranian grandparents, hence the nickname, Pjotr has been playing music for the crowds since the early -00′s. Growing up with such diverse musical influences such as his mom’s old crooner records, a hell of a lot of Abba-Frida, Beethoven (his own choice at the age of 4) and later on way too much Eurodance… he is hard to lock in a genre. Trying to pinpoint what he plays now as house or techno works – but maybe we should just settle by calling it “’4 to the floor’ with a strong touch of pop and a hint of acid”.

Starting his career playing in one of Stockholm’s most respected queer parties, moving to London in 2003, sucking up the vibe of the UK-scene, DJ’ing and doing his very own first club night, as well as working in a record store – the city came to be a massive influence. Back in Stockholm in 2007 the DJ’ing really took off; producing and DJ’ing at several of his own celebrated club nights, quickly moving on to hold residencies at some of the city’s most respected venues as well as playing almost every single club, party or rave in the country. His most recent club night venture GUMM4N at Under Bron (w. Staffan Lindberg) has been a packed success since the start in spring 2012. The same year Pjotr also played Sweden’s two biggest festivals; Hultsfred as well as Way Out West, and finished off the summer stateside with gigs in both New York and San Francisco.
