Over the last four years, Ryan Wells has cemented his reputation as one of Western Canada’s most exciting and enthusiastic young djs/producers. After establishing a name for himself in Nelson BC and across the Kootenay region, he has carried momentum to Vancouver quickly becoming a go-to choice for prime time slots at some of BC’s most successful festivals such as Shambhala and Bass Coast.
Combining house, techno and bass music with expertise, Ryan’s live sets are wholeheartedly focused on creating an uplifting and infectious dancefloor vibe, which is why 2013 saw him share the stage with some of the world’s best, including Lee Foss, Hot Since 82 and Justin Martin. Moving forward with the same high energy in the studio, recent releases include a remix of Humans “De Ciel” on Hybridity music, a collaboration with Calgary’s Wax Romeo entitled “Roped” on Shambhala Digital, and the seductive floor-filler “Dimes” which came out on French label B Yrslf Division, catching praise and airtime on B Traits’ BBC Radio 1 show.
Alongside his own productions and performances, Ryan plays a dedicated role in the local music scene in Vancouver. Working with the slowdjs team and throwing regular successful parties, he is also the founder and curator of their Slowcast series - the quality and popularity of which further displays his talent for remaining at the forefront of musical selection.
