Gabriel and Dresden

It was a cold night in Cleveland when I first met this dynamic duo. On the suggestion of a promoter friend – Mike Melon – I got into my car with my camera guy and we made the journey across the Canadian Border to get to know this successful EDM team. To be honest I didn’t know a lot about them until I bought their self titled CD but found I couldn’t stop listening to this great album from start to finish. They used a lot of sexy instrumental samples that they created from scratch as well as were fans of vocals. This house music experience they put on in of all places – Cleveland – had myself and the crowd hooked from when the first beat dropped until they wrapped up a 3 hour set. This duo has found a place among the Global Groove Network talents that inspire the current EDM scene in a positive way…

This San Francisco-based artist/DJ/production duo tend to lock themselves up in their studio with two world-class vocalists, vintage guitars, an electric bass, various percussion instruments and a host of electronics including their trusty Minimoog synthesizer and TR-909 drum machine when they create. At the heart of it all is the signature Gabriel & Dresden sound: sexy house and techno beats, lush emotive music, haunting melodies and powerful vocals. This album proves that credible underground production techniques, meaningful lyrics, pop hooks and kick drums can all exist in harmony.

As producers – Josh Gabriel and Dave Dresden – are responsible for a long list of dance club favorites including the worldwide smash Motorcycle “As the Rush Comes” which was the #1 dance song on US radio in 2004 and reached #11 in the UK pop charts. As remixers, they have achieved a string of awards, Billboard #1′s and given their personal spin to a long list of artists that include Annie Lennox, Dido, Jewel, Sara Mclachlan, Duncan Sheik, Britney Spears, Madonna, Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto and more.

Gabriel and Dresden met at the Winter Music Conference in 2001, when Josh Gabriel was giving out white label copies 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, and later appeared on his compilation “Pete Tong’s Twisted Beats.” Tong soon offered Dresden the opportunity to remix New Order’s track, “Someone Like You” and Gabriel was tapped to work on the remix. The two have not stopped making music together since.
