MCBEEZY | TRiLLiTARY | ATL
'Born and raised in the cultural hotbed of Atlanta GA, Daniel McBeezy grew up surrounded by artists and performers of all kind. A musician of over 10 years, McBeezy has had an accolade filled history as a nationally touring drummer for a handful of live electronic acts. Since 2010, however, he has found his home behind the decks as a DJ as well as a budding electronic music producer. Quickly recognized as having a knack for mixing and performance, as well as a long love of electronic music, he's fast earned a reputation for himself in Atlanta and throughout the southeast. He's played multiple festivals, most recently, the second installment of Counterpoint Music Festival outside of Atlanta, in spring '14. McBeezy's performed along side a long and diverse list of well known kindred acts, such as Borgore, Rusko, Gemini, Mayhem, DJ Green Lantern, Big Gigantic, and Heroes & Villains to name a few. He's also been a long member of early southeast bass crews Trillitary and Wobble House, standing in toe with some of Atlanta's best DJs.
McBeezy is definitely product of his surroundings. In 2012 McBeezy dropped the first installment of his Atlanta Forever mix series on Soundcloud. The mixes, the 3rd of which dropped in late 2013, have garnered much critical acclaim. Each mix showcases a strictly Atlanta cast of producers, rappers, and artists that sculpt the city's powerhouse underground sound. It's a display of the versatility and talent of Atlanta's producers, while also reflecting McBeezy's skill as a DJ. McBeezy definitely has that tasteful balance of skill and finesse. He is as fun to watch as he is to listen to.
McBeezy has held 2 monthly year long residencies at Atlanta clubs in his short history as a DJ and Atlanta is starting to really pay attention. He was just featured in Atlanta's 2014 Creative Loafing Music Issue, alongside fellow locals artists Taste Tester and REKchampa, as '3 DJs to know' in Atlanta. Seems like he may be on to something. Future plans include dropping much anticipated new original material, as well as getting behind the drums again for a joint live electronic music venture with a well known heavy hitting Atlanta producer. Continuing to be forever a man of mystery, McBeezy leaves us on the edge of our seat anticipating whats next. I guess we'll have to pay attention.'
