Gabriel and Dresden
San Francisco local hero’s Gabriel & Dresden have become one of the most influential producers of this year. Currently working on writing and producing their artist album and touring the world as DJ’s, G&D rock it like no other by playing truly unique sets packed with their own productions and premiering upcoming tracks from their new record. As producers, DJ's and remixers, Josh Gabriel and Dave Dresden are chart toppers. Whether they're creating dance tracks for Dido, Dave Gahan or Sarah McLachlan, the duo knows how to spin a record to #1. Between mixing the soundtrack to the FX drama “Nip/Tuck,” debuting their double mix CD "Bloom," and releasing tracks on their underground label Organized Nature, Gabriel & Dresden have a lot to work with when they go into a club for a night of heavy rotation. You may also know them from their massively successful side projects, Motorcycle and Andain and collaborations with Armin Van Buuren and Marcus Schulz.
Gabriel & Dresden met at the Winter Music Conference in 2001, when Josh Gabriel was giving out the white label of his first track “Wave 3” and Dave Dresden was scouting new music for Pete Tong. Dresden loved the track, and two weeks later it got played on Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show. Tong soon offered Dresden the opportunity to remix New Order’s track, “Someone Like You” and Gabriel was tapped to work on the remix. Three years later the duo have produced 40 remixes, 10 original tracks, and have a world wide hit as Motorcycle which spent three weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts. Dresden also produces under the name Attention Deficit, and Gabriel writes and produces his own tracks, and has had two acclaimed singles as a producer and member of the group, Andain.
Both Gabriel and Dresden have been involved in music since they started their professional careers. Gabriel began writing and producing music after getting his first synthesizer in 1981. He eventually incorporated the computer into his music making with the addition of his trusty Mac Plus. Gabriel obtained a BFA degree in composition from California Institute of the Arts University and studied at the Institute of Sonology in Den Hague, The Netherlands. He then worked in various post-production studios, on projects for clients such as Sony, Disney, Sega and Oddworld. Gabriel moved on to create Mixmanâ music software and acted as co-founder of the company Mixman Technologies Inc. for 8 years. Dresden’s impressive career includes DJing for the past 15 years, while holding various high profile music industry jobs such as writer for artist interviews and music reviews, and driving A&R for Promo Only. Dresden has compiled mix CD’s and compilations for several record labels, scouted for Pete Tong, has been a radio DJ and music director for both Internet and radio stations with a world wide listening base.
The duo live and produce in San Francisco , California. Visit their website for Discography, DJ Tour dates and more information.
Every so often a musical act with the capability to ignite a trend comes on the scene. With his innovative rock/house sound - a fusion of deep basslines, dirty beats, warm guitars, bluesy vocals and profound lyrics - Rosko is one such artist.
Influenced equally by late 60's/early 70’s rock legends such as Neil Young, and by the burgeoning New York City club scene of the early-mid 90’s Rosko began his musical career as a bluesy acoustic-rock singer until an introduction to John Creamer, one half of production/remix/ DJ super duo, Creamer & K, set him on a very different musical journey.
“Love Is A Drug”, the first single from Rosko produced by Creamer & K, co-produced by his frequent musical partner Lance Jordan for their label NY Love, went to number 1 in America on the Billboard Dance Chart in March of 2005. Since then, he has continued to rock it live from Crobar in NYC to Bora Bora in Tunisia!
Upcoming releases include a duet with Nadia Ali of iio titled "Something To Lose," again produced by Creamer & K, to be released by Ultra Records, and "Milkbone" produced by Lance Jordan and Italy's Milly De Mori, to be released on Dusk Recordings, as well as a full-length artist album.
Rosko’s professional career began in New York City in the early 90’s, while studying at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. He began performing regularly with the trendy, Obie-Award-winning Cucaracha Theater company when they cast him in a very provocative, experimental musical off-broadway that incorporated edgy, raw pop references with liturgical chants and apocalyptic biblical metaphors. He went on to create his own burlesque-inspired performance art pieces in the group’s legendary Underground Cabaret alongside stunning musical guests like the Blue Man Group. He also collaborated with Cucaracha’s composer John Hoge as a vocalist for the acclaimed “Home Sapien Shuffle” which went on to run at Joe Papp’s Public Theatre. One night a week, he and a close friend, choreographer Vanessa Walters (Fischerspooner) would borrow the rehearsal studio of renowned performance artist Lee Nagrin to develop a conceptual performance piece as a duo called “Yin and Yang.”
Rosko hired Jordan to co-produce a collection of primarily rock tracks, interspersed with techno-electronic beats. Rosko and Jordan tested their material with a series of performances, starting in late 2002 at Filter 14, then New York City’s unofficial launching pad for some of the city’s best underground music talent. Fittingly, the space (formerly Mother) was the original home of Rosko’s all-time favorite dance party, Jackie 60. They felt the material would benefit from some major dance remixes, and a month later, the singer Susana (“Storm Is Rising”) hired Jordan to write some vocals with her for a project with the notorious John Creamer. Along with his production partner Stephane K, the duo Creamer & K were on fire, having been named remixers of the year by Mixer magazine, namely for the big 2002 hits Hide U (Kosheen) and Rapture (iio).
As fortune would have it, Creamer & K were looking for a male singer to write vocals, so Jordan gave Creamer a demo, and they loved it. But they didn’t want to remix. Instead, they offered to get behind the project as producers, and collaborate on some original new material. In the summer of 2003, “Rosko” - formerly just a nickname for Paul Bosko but now a moniker coined by Creamer - was born.
