DJ W!ld -Dirty on Cabin Fever May 14th


DJ W!LD is the French music maestro infamous for his DC10 residency and tireless work ethic that keeps the dancefloor brimming with infectious weapons. Now he delivers his first album for Cabin Fever.

A year after his debut artist album, Guillaume Duchastel de Montrouge, aka DJ W!LDreintroduces the world to his raw and groovy sound for his second album, ‘Dirty’. A more straight up honest affair, this concoction of late night jacking cuts hypnotise with clever use of sampling – a nod to his penchant for hip hop – vintage feel and well carved beats.

Dirty’ is true to its namesake, a sensual journey that explores desires and primal instincts and finely balances female and male vocals that weave like serpents in the mix. The album opens quietly with the haunting echoes‘W Train’ and ‘Apres La Plage’, saturating the senses in vivid sound. But it’s not until ‘Voyage’ that we feel the real elusive, unpredictable, and truly underground nature of the album. Frequently returning to quiet interludes and unexpected snapshots of mysterious scenes, ‘Dirty’ is cleverly fashioned for indulging in again and again.

With titles such as ‘All I Want Is U’ and ‘In Love’ its easy to see how inspired W!LD is by the power of emotions and female forces in his life. This can be felt in every moment of ‘Dirty’ along with a deep nostalgia capturing a long lost energy of underground dance music in its current.

‘Dirty’ seethes with vigour and isn’t afraid to push buttons. An album created to be played loud (try title track ‘Dirty’ and the sassy ‘Dream Of Me’ for full effect), it is the perfect warm up for late night adventures or early morning carry-ons. Packing more than a punch, W!LD opens the ears to his journeys across dancefloors over the past few years and cements his reputation as a true body mover.

DJ W!LD became resident at Circo Loco in 2010 and has since travelled the globe with the brand and spent many lost Mondays at the infamous home in DC10 Ibiza. A fixture on Cocoon bookings, W!LD is renowned in the global electronic network  after years spent honing his skills.

Born in the French town Dijon, he was immersed in a world of funk, disco, and groovy beats in the early 90´s and heavily inspired by his hero Laurent Garnier through his residency at L´Enfer. There was no turning back from this point as he immersed himself in this new coming revolution from Detroit techno and Chicago house.

W!LD relocated to Paris in 1996 and became one of the renowned ‘disc-jockeys’ of the emerging scene. He could be seen at The Palace, the Queen and the Rex and was invited to the famous New York club Twilo. After a brief stint living in Brazil, W!ld became one of the leading DJs in the underground gay scene in Europe, providing soundtracks for fashion shows for Thierry Mugler ,Christian Lacroix, and Vivienne Westwood.

In 2005 he created his own label, Catwash with fellow Parisien Chris Carrier and last year he launched his own personal project, W, which saw the launch of his debut album. W!LD has been remixed by many great talents from the burgeoning music scene such as DJ Sneak, Kerri Chandler, Chris Carrier, Hector Morales, Phil Weeks, Chez Damiez and SIS.

Released on Cabin Fever, a label that is famed for tough and upfront dancefloor classics, ‘Dirty’ was the perfect fit to its sound. This special vinyl only re-edit label has previously released a CD compilation but W!LD delivers its first full artist album.
