Davidecks & Drums
A DJ presents his records, they say. A drummer masters his drum set.
Combined together on stage, this is called Davidecks & Drums.
Kristian Davidek goes beyond the scope of a DJ-set, his record players become part of a band. Daniel Schreiber beats the drums to Kristian Davidek’s eclectic mix of house, techno, brazil and breakbeats.
However, for the two musicians, a mere listening experience is not satisfying enough: Their lively double act and the harshly accented light create a hybrid of live-concert and DJ-performance – which is also an experience for the eyes. The parties by Davidecks & Drums are: emotional, exciting and surprising.
From the west to the east
In April 2013, they initiated the project Davidecks & Drums. Soon, they established a reputation beyond the borders of Austria. As a drummer/DJ-team they toured through the clubs of Austria and Germany for one year. Sound systems from the west to the east, from the south to the north were being fuelled: in Conrad Sohn in Dornbirn, at the Impulstanz Festival in Vienna, at the FM4-Festival in Muffathalle, Munich and in front of 4.000 people at the legendary Fusion Festival in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, at Wohnzimmer Konstanz (GER), Kantine Ravensburg (GER), at Surfweltcup Podersdorf (A) alongside several other open air festivals in Austria.

From Beirut to New York he proves his DJ-qualities. And with Davidecks & Drums he consequently continues his philosophy of playing records: How much can one get out of a DJ-set on stage?
