DVS1’s status as one of the world’s most revered DJs and prominent voices in the preservation of true club culture is built upon an all-encompassing love of music, deep respect for his craft, and experiences in the ‘90s midwest rave scene. His sets, powerful and high-energy affairs, honor these roots while evidencing a versatility, sensitivity, and understanding for making people dance that comes only with years of commitment in pushing the boundaries of sound at the most renowned clubbing institutions, among them Berghain/Panorama Bar, where he’s one of few residents capable of working both floors. Whether he’s spinning a rare house set or racing, straight techno to pitch black rooms, the DVS1 experience is unforgettable.
DVS1's interests don’t stop at just being a DJ or conceptual artist pushing an aesthetic that carries the underground values he grew up on. He has also critically spoken out through interviews and publications sharing his opinions on the challenges and issues facing the electronic music community, notably through his essay about the battle between art and entertainment and the importance of no-camera policies. In October 2019, Khutoretsky launched S.O.S. (Support Organize Sustain), an independent initiative to promote community and artistry in electronic music through panels, presentations, roundtable discussions and more. Focusing on the foundational values of dance music culture, S.O.S. has a clear mission to provide an open platform for exchange while helping to push necessary changes in the coming years.
Addressing the increasing pay gap between DJs and producers, Khutoretsky founded the community-driven platform Aslice to restructure the electronic music economy. Launched in March 2022, Aslice allows working DJs to donate a percentage of their fees to the artists whose music they play. Aslice seeks to revolutionize the relationship between DJs and producers by creating a service that makes it easy for everyone to get their fair share.
His remaining hours are spent touring, purveying his favorite records and secret weapons, several of which have later appeared on Mistress Recordings, a HUSH sub-label for other artists that allows for a broader spectrum of aesthetics and reflects his wide-ranging musical tastes. Whether it’s label management, DJing, or producing, DVS1 is an artist who stays true to his past without ever losing sight of the future.
