Bassnectar on his history, posted via bassnectar.net A quick run down of my musical life:
When I was in junior high I began discovering music that struck me, as opposed to music that felt familiar (like my parent’s music). This was mostly Metallica (the first song I heard of theirs was “Enter Sandman”, so this was after they had already become “mainstream” and blown up), NWA (which I memorized completely verbatim)...
A 90s alias of Jon Carter, for his breakbeat productions as opposed to the house flavoured Junior Cartier project. Inevitably lumped in with the "big beat" movement of the time, although their album Shoot the Boss had a dark mood and heavy dub influence that defied the "cheeky party antics" ethos of the genre.
Plaza de Funk has been producing and DJing since 2001.After a few formative years spent dabbling with production and releasing records on labels such as Oxyd in his native country Italy, he moved to London in early 2004 and almost immediately got signed to West Records (best breakthrough label at Breakspoll 2005, and nominated as best label at Breakspoll 2006). The deal lead to the release of the Got The Funk Ep in 2005, which included a remix from Madox and was a massive hit, with support from all major players across the board.
DJ ICON, also known as Connie Wong, began her DJ career in 1996 at age 16 in San Francisco, California. She quickly rose in the ranks and created a name for herself in the underground, soon to break through the surface onto clubs, televisions, and radios across the globe. ICON was known as a trance DJ for the first half of her career but since 2001, she has immersed herself into breakbeats and almost exclusively plays Nu-Skool and Funky Breaks, a style she refers to as "Dirrty Breaks". However, when called upon, her versatility allows her to play all genres of electronic dance music.
Sound wise, the tracks off Puzzleweasel fall somewhere between Richard Devine and Venetian Snares, with a playful sci-fi edge. Abrupt and consequently teasing and shifting beats with a jungle background. It is a completely unpredictable sonic nightmare full of energy and cutup beats. It has the intensity of harsh noise and is made as a full-frontal attack on the dancefloor. Peter Dahlgreen "Puzzleweasel" was born in Zurich lived in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Norway and now living in Aarhus Denmark, where he is a student on the conservatory of music in the electronic department.
