David Brian Pezzner was born in Tarzana, California in 1975 and currently lives in Seattle, Washington. He is 5 foot 7 inches in height and weighs about 165 lbs. His brother, Bill works at the Port Of Seattle and has four children, two of whom are actually step-children. Bill’s wife owns a local publication and is a skilled bicyclist (even though she has not gone professional.)
When David works in his studio where he makes electronic music, his wife brings him a drink and discusses her day. The door-keeper comes in to give him a telegram sent the previous year from the Eolian Islands.
In 2010 he wrote an album of music which was released by Freerange records. A year later David’s first and only daughter, Eloise Sylvia was born. She was 5 pounds 11 ounces at birth. David spoke only English and cooked meals for his family every day until 2013 when a company called Systematic Recordings contracted him for another album.
Besides writing music for night clubs and headphones, Pezzner composes music for vision and function, and teaches electronic music writing concepts to anyone who will pay him money. He sleeps exactly like any other man but, as you will no doubt have noticed, he is not an orthodox painter of the old school, but rather a modern artist. A designer.
With a long list of releases under his belt on some of the worlds’ most influential labels, Dave Pezzner continues to re-define perceptions with his latest album on Get Physical Music. ‘Title Track’ is Pezzner’s 9 track album that sways between the footholds of house, techno and ambient with a healthy touch of experimental where it counts.
Known for his unconventional approach to dance music, Pezzner is no slave to the beat (see ‘Heartline’), although rest assured, he definitely knows how to lay on down. Tracks like ‘The Jackal’ tease us the whole way through, while delivering a heavy dose of underground in the process. He’s not afraid to lead us off onto a tangent either, on a journey through his world before returning us to the warmth with the drop. Of course the album has its dancefloor fillers as well, ‘Julie’ is one of them. A sexy house-y approach that pumps out a hands-in-the-air groove and delivers on all fronts. Of course we can’t talk about dancefloor fillers without mentioning the title track of ‘Title Track’, a low track that delivers under the radar with its erratic and captivating bassline and synths.
Pezzner’s strongest suit is melody and harmony, keeping the music is focus and letting the atmosphere take hold, something we’ve come to expect and love. Alongside the album, Pezzner has prepared a continuous mix for the full effect, so pull the headphones on and let it take you for a ride.
