Wick-It The Instigator
Ask anyone who's seen him live and they'll tell you that Wick-it puts on one of the most high-energy, original and entertaining live shows you've ever seen. With successful headlining shows everywhere from California to Alabama, it is clear that the rest of the nation is taking note as well.
What makes Wick-it so special begins in the studio. Starting in 2010 with his groundbreaking Big Boi vs. Black Keys mashup album The Brothers of Chico Dusty, Wick-it's thoughtfully fresh remixes have earned him a reputation amongst listeners as a producer that only puts out the highest quality of tracks. His ability to deliver in a multitude of styles earned him recent support slots for acts like:
Pretty Lights, Ghostland Observatory, Big Boi, Skrillex, Porter Robinson, MiM0SA, Three 6 Mafia, Yelawolf, PANTyRAiD, Girl Talk, SKisM, Borgore, Zoogma, Perpetual Groove, NiT GriT, Zeds Dead and Caspa.
One of the secrets behind his fan base's rabid loyalty is that, although a handful of his tracks have recently been released under labels (and charted on Beatport), the majority of his music is available for free download on his SoundCloud page. With almost 2,000,000 plays and 500,000 downloads, it is clear people simply can't get enough Wick-it. His musical approach is tough to pinpoint given that his roots are in hip-hop, but elements of dubstep, rock and house music have all made their way into his repertoire.
Wick-it's most recent full-length release, Grindhouse Basterds, is a Quentin Tarantino themed hip hop, mashup, dubstep, electronic extravaganza. It features remixes of Apathy, Celph Titled, Bun B, Yelawolf, Aesop Rock, Murs, Slug, Notorious B.I.G., KRS ONE, RZA, Ghostface, and more.
With acts like Bassnectar, Z-Trip & MiMOSA now beginning to catch on (They've been using Wick-its original remixes as part of their current tours), it's only a matter of time before Wick-it is propelled to the top ranks of his craft.
'Born and raised in 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 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 fast earned a reputation for himself in Atlanta and throughout the southeast. He's held multiple monthly year long residencies at Atlanta clubs as a DJ and played multiple festivals. Most notable include both Counterpoint Music Festival as well as world renown, Tomorrow World. MCBEEZY's performed along side a long & diverse list of kindred acts, the likes of Borgore, Rusko, Gemini, Mayhem, DJ Green Lantern, and Big Gigantic, 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 a product of his surroundings. In 2012 he dropped the first installment of his Atlanta Forever mix series on Soundcloud. The mixes, the 5th of which dropped Dec 2015, have garnered much critical acclaim and support. 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 skills as a DJ. The city's really been paying attention. He was recently featured in Atlanta's 2014 Creative Loafing Music Issue, alongside fellow locals artists Taste Tester and REKchampa, as one of their '3 DJs to know in Atlanta'. He also won 'Best Mixtape of the Year' in one of their 'Best Of' issues, for his Atlanta Forever mix series. Future plans include dropping much anticipated original material with fellow Atlanta DJ, Ployd, as well as a whole new project, and possibly getting behind the drums again for live electronic music ventures with other Atlanta musicians. You never know.'
