Buzz “Bangin’” Goree aka clandestine is an efficient predator unit: one of underground resistance`s assault Djs, he follows an m.o. based deeply in the tradition of UR [Underground Resistance] used specifically for UR assaults within the competitive world of Detroit Djing, buzz has consistently kicked the asses of competitors and intimidated many so-called world-class Djs. Buzz Goree started his DJ career at the early age of 13 in the city of Detroit, MI. Back in those early days, he played disco music. By age 15 he had already done guest appearances at Detroit’s top clubs, STUDIO 54 and LA UMOS among them. In 1982 Buzz Goree teamed up with the DJ-crew Audio Mix, one of Detroit´s dominating DJ teams. In 1993 he founded his first label, NIGHT GROOVE RECORDS. It was on this imprint that Goree acted as executive producer for PAULA McPHEIRSON`s "Lift Me Up" and AGENT-X’s "Groove Tracks Vol. 1” featuring BURT COLLINS. During this time he worked under the monikers THE HOUSE SQUAD and THE BLOWED PIMPS. Soon after this, Goree met UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE mastermind MIKE BANKS and worked along with him on the legendary Detroit House label HAPPY RECORDS. He co-produced the hit "Work Me" with Detroit`s artist De-Hi on this UR sub-imprint. In the same year, Buzz Goree - now also known by his production name "Clandestine" - teamed up with Underground Resistance in order to help take UR to the next level. During this period, Buzz has produced many of the infamous and unobtainable UR Assault DJammunition tracks: The "Z" Records . These records are specifically created for and only available to UR Assault DJs. The UR units always include these records in their sets, giving them a tactical advantage over rivals. Buzz also produced "THE SWARM" under the moniker REMOTE, as well as the highly recommended UR_BATTLE PACKS in 2005, which are used, among others, by battle DJs worldwide. UR`s control system asserts that the Bangin´ Goree unit is ready for global assault. Designed to be aggressive and hard-hitting, as were his preceding models, Buzz Goree is dedicated to bring havoc to dance floors on a global scale. Simply place this unit in front of the crowd and brace for impact: Buzz Goree utilizes his DJ skills in perfect combination with Minimal Techhouse, Minimal House, and Techno ranging from Classic UR to contemporary to its fullest and beyond! Buzz has done DJ appearances all over the world playing at clubs like LIQUID ROOM |Tokyo, THE SHELTER | Shanghai, REX CLUB & QUEENS | Paris, 9 MONKEYS | Madrid, CLUB 69 & SOUND HAUS | Glasgow plus at a lot of other clubs in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Dublin, London and Rome. He is a regular in Berlin, having appeared at LOVE PARADE, CLUB MARIA, TRESOR, PANORAMA BAR, :// about blank, so’ (436) & SUICIDE CIRCUS. Taking advantage of the Detroit-Berlin connection, Goree maintains households in both cities, keeping him in the vein of things. He is to this day a member of Underground Resistance and does events in his home town such as the Jive Turkey series over Thanksgiving. While he is running UR’s World Power Alliance sublabel, it is temporarily deactivated to make time for Goree’s own project, the Detroit Techno-rooted imprint MIXWORKS . With this label, he's developing new young artists from around the world . It is important for Buzz to discover and foster new talent. Mixworks is not designed for a certain genre of music. “We make music that comes out of us,” explains Buzz. We can look forward to the Mixsource EP, produced by, simply, Mixworks. Yet Mixworks is more than just a label. It is also a booking agency, among other tasks Goree has taken on. Buzz Goree is a veteran on the road, having toured numerous times with such luminaries as Scan 7, Juan Atkins, A Guy Called Gerald and Suburban Knight. If you are looking for the inner city Detroit sound without all the intellectual bullshit, if you are looking for a small, sweaty venue with a DJ who satisfies the dancers, then go with the bang factor that comes standard with the original intimidator, Buzz "Bangin’" Goree. This guy is one of the most respected DJs and producers, as well as one of Detroit`s most sought after artists today. If you want the true UR experience, Buzz Goree will take you there! http://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/buzzgoree | https://www.facebook.com/pages/ Mixworks/516728288368438?ref=hl | http://www.mixcloud.com/MIXWORKS/https://www.youtube.com/ user/313mixworks | http://mixworks.blogspot.it/ | https://soundcloud.com/alexmixworks | https:// twitter.com/313MIXWORKS | http://www.discogs.com/label/Mixworks | www.313mixworks.net
