REVIEW album Dave Wesley Arctic Dub (Sursumcorda)

Dave Wesley Offers Sacred Geometry-Inspired Dreamscape

Arctic Dub (Sursumcorda)

Dave Wesley

I listen to a lot of electronica but only recently learned of the term 'ambient dub'. It turns out that numerous artists who I love actually fit this description, including Michael Brook.
Fitting the bill of this exciting new sub-genre, it is my pleasure to introduce you to Dave Wesley with his new 2-track single called "Laranja Swadhisthana 67_5 - EPv1". With composition based on sacred geometry and tuning, this music is as beautiful as anything found on Peter Gabriel's much-revered 'Passion'.

This new single is comprised of two tracks, transmitted to us from a beautiful but “lonely ceremony place”. The spectacular single is, in his words, “constructed with the principles of sacred geometry and tuning… using parts of the north and the south… and with the fury.”

Dave Wesley’s music style integrates chill, dub techno, experimental, and ambient genres. His music revolves in the same realm as Michael Brook, Brian Eno, Passion-era Peter Gabriel, Deepchord (a.k.a. Rod Modell), output from Echospace Recordings and Basic Channel. It also shares similar vibes as the work of Philip Glass, for whom Wesley even remixed 'Why Are We Here?' for the Philip Glass album 'Glass: Glasscuts', released on his own label Orange Mountain Music, in addition to DJing at the NYC release party for this album.

Known for his adventurous DJ sets, Dave performs regularly in Portugal and Europe. He produces under several different names: Dave Wesley (ambient dub techno), Existente (ambient), Xerography (dark cinematic techno), and The Mayhem Lecture Series (experimental and field recordings). He’s also teamed up with Casey Borchert under the moniker The Push. As an active DJ and performer, he mixes eclectic deep sets and also performs live space ambient guitar with TV Crush, an experimental and an improvisational chill music ensemble.

Using production techniques based on the principles of sacred geometry, Dave’s music is captivating, seamlessly exploring evolving soundscapes, iteration and meditation, and seducing the imagination forward into transcendental realms.

I hope you enjoy the music of this Philip Glass-collaborator as much as I do.
