Wow, this is so so exciting to me. After nearly three years, this site is now expanding to take on five additional writers. It’s simply gotten to the point where I want to give you guys more material and bringing on some talented new writers is the best way to do that. They’re all very accomplished and with their help you might now see some different things here on the site…more interviews, perhaps articles, tech reviews, music videos and more. Maybe you guys can leave in the comments what kinds of things you’d like to see incorporated here!
And now…join me in welcoming your new writers. For their full bios, make sure to check out the updated about page here on the site.
Hailing from Washington, DC, DENMAN started out in the punk and metal scene but since then has worked through every sound he could put his paws on. Now just at home listening to Revenge as he is to Royal T, he has worked for several respected blogs, is in band LTW, DJs and helps run DIY label Cricket Cemetery. Describing his writing style as ‘masterbatory florist’, DENMAN’s prose is enviable, thorough and damn gorgeous.
Zoë Renee Jackson calls Cleveland home and is a DJ, producer, visual artist and previous contributor to Discobelle. Also the founder of the highly acclaimed Electric Circus dance party, Zoë’s reach within the dance community is far and wide…and now includes contributor for danideahl.com.
JLR has actually been featured himself on this site many times for his exquisite mashapellas of unexpected dance tracks. A native of Toronto and DJ for over ten years, JLR has played alongside artists from Deadmau5 to Hatiras and John Acquaviva. This year he formed alias Dirty Triqs with Jay Hamilton and under this name they’ve remixed for Atlantic Records with upcoming production for The Angry Kids and Jelo.
Madison brings us $amroc – a unique artist with a penchant for Jamaican music mixed with hip hop scratching. He also loves everything from dub effects to latin percussion and electronic bass, creating a melding of sounds he can claim his own. Aside from DJing, he is also active in bands TakI Allstars and Star Persons.
Our last writer is also from Madison and active in several areas of dance and nightlife. Wyatt Agard has not only carved a name for himself opening for acts like Diplo, Bassnectar and Steve Aoki, but also throws his own events and teaches classes at Madison’s celebrated DJ shop MC Audio. As if that wasn’t enough, he is also a producer with upcoming releases on Noise Complaint Records and is one of less than 50 Ableton Live Certified Instructors nationwide.
