De Sluwe Vos (The Sly Fox) has made a remarkable impact on the scene these past few years. He’s the perfect example of how hard work pays off. And it is evident, watching one of his shows; De Sluwe Vos truly loves what he’s doing. This pure energy got him to play at festivals like Lowlands and Pukkelpop while he also had gigs at Glastonbury (Block9’s Genosys stage), Fuse (Brussels), Ministry of Sound (London), DGTL (Barcelona), Sankeys and Awakenings in Manchester and multiple times at Pollerwiesen. During weekdays he likes to stick to his equipment in the studio which resulted in a remarkable live show, which will be launched during ESNS and bringing him to major festivals across Holland and Europe.
Next, to playing multiple shows weekly, he also curates the Patron label where he releases EP’s and VA’s on high-speed tempo. With 3 widely supported releases in the debut year, 2 in the last months and many more planned already the label is here to stay. The label is also responsible for events with guests like Matrixxman, Ryan Elliot, Marquis Hawkes, Bambounou and Space Dimension Controller.
De Sluwe Vos career really took off in 2012 with the release of the infamous ‘OG Anthem’. This track marked a pivotal point in his career; production-wise as well as for his DJ shows. His energized sets got picked-up by a bigger crowd and international acts. After this, he continued building his brand with his Kontra Album + your with a full-fledged band and release on 4Lux and Unknown to the Unknown.
For his ‘All night long tour’ he played at eight different clubs in Holland, all by himself, every Friday and Saturday of November. He went from OOST in Groningen, to Basis in Utrecht and from Toffler in Rotterdam to Amsterdam’s youngest club Shelter. After the great success of this tour, it was time to retreat in the studio to work on an analogue live-set which will see the light in 2019 and will be performed exclusively on selected festivals.
De Sluwe Vos is not planning to stop working hard in 2019 by the looks of his agenda playing more MainStage than ever, building the Patron brand and releasing his long-awaited EP on DGTL Records (including a collaborator with Sjamsjoedin and a Bambounou remix). Sluwe’s music also gets attention overseas as a release is planned on Black Orpheus (Hypercolour).
