Music Producer

  • Rapoon

    Dave Wesley, December 11th 2017

    It’s hard to believe that I have only recently discovered Robin Storey’s ethno-ambient production alias, Rapoon.  With ample discography and diversity within the tight range of borderline experimental music that I would refer to as “artistically inspiring”, I feel like a detectorist, in my own back yard, with obnoxiously squealing detector. You can find a […]

    • loscil – Drained Lake

      Dave Wesley, September 13th 2017

      Having done some work designing music for dance and visual media, I appreciate a magic combination when I experience it…  This piece is amazing and emotional.  Loscil is one of my artistic heroes.  I’m really confused why you don’t have all of his releases. Music by loscil Choreographed and Performed by Vanessa Goodman Video by Scott […]

      • Ângela Polícia – Pruridades.

        Gabi Von Dub, March 22nd 2017

In the collaborative and passionate Portuguese hip-hop scene, not every record reaches my heart as deep as this one. Ângela Polícia speaks with clarity, breathing every track with such an unusual honesty and tone, delivering to the world truth and compassion, […]

        • Re-Post – Jan Jelinek: Sampling matters

          Dave Wesley, March 21st 2017

          Oli Warwick’s timely and salient Resident Advisor piece on Jan Jelinek  fascinates and brightens my week.   Jan Jelinek’s (now classic) groundbreaking sample/cut/copy/paste/glitch production is a huge influence and inspiration to my own music production and listening palette.

          • Repost – The 10 Weirdest, Most Wonderful Ricardo Villalobos Tracks

            Dave Wesley, March 4th 2017

            As a producer and a listener, I still have a strange but healthy fascination with Ricardo, even though he seems to have settled into his musical context.  I will always give his new stuff a listen to see if he has returned to bending the rules. Re-posting this cool article from Pulse.

              • Crate Diggers – Flávio Freitas – Drive

                Dave Wesley, November 15th 2016

                Until every track, sample, stem, digital image, etc. is watermarked or Blockchain enabled, we have the advantage of listening to expertly crafted mixes from true crate diggers like Flakka (Flávio Freitas), from Porto, Portugal.  I have had the extreme good fortune to be in his presence many times, along with his cadre of fellow diggers […]

                  • The Prolific Tamás Olejnik

                    Dave Wesley, September 22nd 2016

                    Electronic (and organic) music producers like Tamás Olejnik (from Hungary) make me jealous and make me wonder what I’m doing with all of my time.  He has several aliases including Dublicator, Organit, and Atendex.  His work spans dub techno, organic techno, and ambient/drone.  His music is super cool and his production is consistent high quality.  He also […]
