DJ GK started this as a solo project, after moving back home. Later a friend moved in and we were going to start up together but we ever actually recorded anything together...all that remains is an album that he recorded on his own and another tape of remixes. After this nothing musical happened for a number of years until in 2006 Deja Vue, was started off to do cover songs. In fact six albums worth were produced, but never released, they have all been deleted.
DJ GK would then go onto think about some of my other favourite influences like The Art of Noise, Kraftwerk and Jean Michel Jarre, and decided he wanted to move more into the field of playing electro music. The result of this was the album Retro-Electro. A combination of eight styles of electro music including dance, techno, DnB and disco. I finished the album in early August 2007.
Around this time I had met up with my old friend The Mix Kid, and although we had remained friends throughout the years, had not colaborated since the early days. After playing a demo of the CD and talking for a while he agreed to join the band. The Mix Kid (DJ Ears, Steve) composes / produces and will be doing the groove and drum box programming for the band. I still do the remixing as DJ GK and I do my own production work under the name of LHP (Long Hall Productions). Our next step is to get some more tracks ready for a second album and to get managed/promoted and signed to a label Deja Vue is currently UNSIGNED and looking for a deal and promotion In October 2007 Retro-Electro album was completed, and a deal done with AWAL (Artists WIthout A Label) to get the album onto iTunes. They were also busy and completing tracks for the new album due in January 2008 as well a remix album, containing mixes of work from the other two albums. Tracks from Retro-Electro charted at numbers 2,7 & 13 in the Beat The Mix charts (www.beatthemix.co.uk) and number 10 on their over all leaderboard In November 2007 Retro-Electro was released on iTunes.
The Ambient EP is completed by the band. This sees a departure into a different field of expression, but not a new direction. The group has also completed half of the tracks for the next album which is now due for release in Jan 08. Also expected in Jan 08 will be the remix album made up of new versions from both the albums and the EP.
Dec 07 is expected to to be a quite month but it is hoped that we can get The Ambient EP by the end of the year. The group has now started looking at manufactures and distributors so as they can get 'hard copies' to shops and retailers. This month also saw Long Hall Productions (LHP) move into a new location, thus giving better and greater access to the band for recording further material. Deja Vue still remains unsigned and at this stage has no desire to be signed by a record label as long as distribution can be sorted out.
