Of all the styles DJ Sports excels at, jungle might be his best. For one, the Aarhus artist, real name Milán Zaks, is a talented drum programmer, and jungle provides a complex rhythmic framework within which to let loose and get creative. But percussion is only half the story: something about jungle—the sense of space, its dub and reggae roots, the sudden changes in pace and intensity—combines beautifully with Zaks' airy, tender, pastel-coloured sound.
Århus rarely springs to mind when you think about hubs for electronic music. A key member of Regelbau, an eleven-strong collective operating out of Denmark’s second city, Milán Zaks aka DJ Sports is one of several emerging producers credited with its rise as a fertile setting for electronic exploration. Weaving palatial, Detroit-esque melodies and ambient atmospheres with breakbeat and house structures, the prolific collective are busy cultivating something they can call their own.
Between Regelbau, the Help Recordings label he runs with older brother and fellow Regelbau member Natal (aka Central); the recently formed No Hands imprint set up with Anders Vendelbo, Mathias Okholm and C.K. (the latter two also of Regelbau) and producing music both solo and under collective guises like Hi Mount and Maizena, it’s difficult to see how Zaks has time to hone his craft as a DJ.
