DJ Sports (Regelbau/Firecracker)
DJ Sports aka Milan Zaks is part of the Regelbau crew from Aarhus in Denmark, who’ve made a big splash on the global house scene with their breezy, earthy yet enlivening brand of music over the past few years. He’s released on the collective’s various labels (Regelbau, Help and No Hands) under his own name, in collaboration with others as part of Maizena and Hi Mount, as well as put out a tape on the Dutch label Yield. Last year he released his debut album, Modern Species, on Firecracker; it’s a perfect encapsulation of his style and approach, covering blissful ambient, euphoric house and jungle-infused wig-outs. Weaving palatial, Detroit-esque melodies and ambient atmospheres with breakbeat and house structures, the album reflects Milan’s skill as a selector and DJ.
