Biography

Den Haan are a live synthesised dance act - the conceptual disco duo of Matthew Aldworth and Andy Gardiner. Previous releases have brought the group critical acclaim, and firm dj support from the likes of Optimo, Cosmo Vitelli, Headman, Ivan Smagghe and Mylo and. Their debut album “Gods from Outerspace” will be released on their own label – Courier Of Death – on Feb 28th 2011.

Den Haan are built for the rhythms of the night. Their releases are the spirit of seedy 70’s basement dives, a deco-greco roman blur of glistening bodies and dazzling lights, Criso on the wrists, spunk in the dark corners and sweat condensed on every surface. Den Haan GET the serious high-camp aesthetic built into italo and especially hi-NRG;- a sound that is at once knowing-humour and hand-on-the-cock sexual swagger. And there ain’t no Diva’s in the Den Haan sound – save maybe for a terrifying 26 stone dog-shit eating drag colossal know as Divine. Their rhythms are dark, electronic, tribal; the rock-god vocals more akin to Anvil or Van Halen, popper-soaked macho guys barking out tales of stalking the night cruising for kicks, all backed by a chorus of booming sado-cybernetic vocoders.


Den Haan study their favourite productions and producers in forensic detail: Celso Valli from Azoto and Tantra, Franco Rago & Gigi Farina (behind the ‘Lectric Workers releases)
