Corvin dalek
Corvin Dalek (real name Gábor Müller) is a Hungarian DJ, producer, remixer and graphic designer. He was born in Budapest and played his first gig in a disused railway station at Bodrog near Sarospatak on New Year's Eve 1988. Following a series of frustrating experiences with inexperienced promoters, Dalek decided he wanted to promote his own parties, forming the company Sunflower Promotions to do so. [2] Ten years later, after a trip to Berlin, he decided to move there. During Berlin's first DJ convention, he officially set the world record for playing a set at the highest number of turntables (10). [1]

His debut single on MFS was Pounds And Penz, produced in conjunction with Munich-based DJ Alex Flatner, in March 1999, and his remix of the track on the B-side became the definitive version - the world's first Wet'N'Hard record. (It was also part of Pete Tong's Essential Selection in 2000.) [2] In February 2000, together with MFS' Mark Reeder, he established the sub-label Flesh to explore and release material evolving from the current European underground. [3] It released his (to date) only LP, I Am A Dalek, in 2003. His single Real Man is said to have been banned from peak time radio in 22 countries ([3]), and the session he recorded at MFS for Kat's Karavan featured a string of expletives and simulated sex, causing some controversy among listeners (despite airing well after the watershed).

Footnotes
  1. At the Berlin Atonal Festival in February 1999, he played a set with 12 Technics turntables, but the attempt was incorrectly recorded.
  2. Wet'N'Hard is a techno sub-genre that uses samples of love-making noises as a backing for the music, or "sexual energy for young clubbers who join on the dance floor to take part in the historical sexual ritual of dancing," [1] as evinced by Dalek's session.
  3. The label was never a success and folded around 2005-6.
