With our Faces of Culture Box-series we’re profiling good friends of the house, staff and regulars who all participate in making our venue a vibrant and stimulating affair. Meet one of our cherished supporters and dedicated regulars Ivan.

Age: 33

Work: Right now I am working as a driver in a transport company, which is satisfying to me. During my spare time I love to train, listen to music, travel, explore new places, hanging out with friends, regular things as most people do.

First time I went to Culture Box… it was in 2013 and the maestro Jeff Mills was playing. That was an awesome and memorable experience for me, so after that night, the box had me as a huge fan.

I come here because… I love electronic music first of all, I love to meet new people which are into it as well and share common interests, and because this is a place, that I can see a lot of my favourite dj’s! Culture Box definitely gives that pleasure to all of us (the fans, lovers). Thank you so much for the whole community, and giving us that pleasure feeling. We will continue to support, big thanks Culture Box! I am highly recommending it to those that haven’t been there yet!

My favourite DJ or live act is… I can’t say which is my favourite, because there has been many and much more to come. Every DJ that comes in here has their individual flow and vibes, which is amazing to experience for me, and I love to hear and see it every single time that I go. 

My best Culture Box memory… oh, that’s also difficult to say, because they were many, (every time I guess, ha ha), but I can say that one was when KiNK played, it was eight years ago, I think.. He did a crazy live set, and sat fire to the floor. The crowd was burning!

Klockworks’ night with Ben Klock and Etapp Kyle was also special. Awesome! Mr. Klock set our clocks until the early morning (as usual) it was unbelievable! (One of my favorites).

Nina Kraviz, that was an epic night! 🙂

And of course it’s always a pleasure to listen to the Danish local heroes and residents of the box.

What I love most about Culture Box is… I love the people that works there, they are always welcoming and positive set up, I love the sound system and the visuals in the club and of course the people behind the organization of all gigs, that’s incredibly. Just keep that hard work going, it’s so cool! 

In the future I’d like to see…  more of the Ostgut Ton artists, as it was years ago every 1st Saturday of the month (and not only), because it’s one of my favourite labels ever, since my teen ages. Of course there are much more new artists that need to be heard & seen, but I don’t want to suggest any because I believe and know that the management of the club, it’s on a top level. They know what to do.

It’s all about TECHNO 🙂

What I love most about electronic music is… over the years I pass through a lot of genres in the electronic music. This journey begins for me 20+ years ago. The tribal progressive house combined with some old school techno legends was popular at that time. Right now I am into deep/dub/hypnotic techno and I love ambient music. I also like to experience new artists, because there are many new talents. It’s resting my mind and makes me think about the future, I don’t know it’s difficult to describe. Those who knows probably will understand what I mean 🙂 Loving it as my passion!
