Gabriel and Dresden
From: USA
Gabriel and Dresden

San Francisco-based artist/DJ/production duo Gabriel & Dresden just spent the last year locked 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. 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, Gabriel & 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. Their most recent effort's include Zocalo (a collaboration with Armin Van Burren) and Without You Near (with Markus Schulz and Departure).

As remixers, they have achieved a string of awards, Billboard #1's and given their personal spin to a long list of artists: Annie Lennox, Dido, Jewel, Sara Mclachlan, Duncan Sheik, Britney Spears & Madonna, Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto and more. Most recently, when musicality and dance-floor appeal were needed for the remix of Gustavo Santaolalla's Academy Award Winning "The Wings," theme to the movie Brokeback Mountain, Gabriel & Dresden were chosen for the job.

As DJ's, Gabriel & Dresden have toured the world playing the best clubs and festivals, were voted in at #29 in the prestigious DJ Magazine Top 100 poll and broadcast their own weekly show "Gabriel & Dresden Organized Nature" on Sirius Satellite radio. In 2004 they released their mix CD, "Bloom" on Nettwerk Records, DJ-mixed the soundtrack for the popular FOX TV series Nip/Tuck and launched their indie record label, Organized Nature. Through it all, Gabriel & Dresden defy classification and have earned respect and support globally of both fans and the worlds top DJs by constantly pushing electronic music to the next level.

Gabriel & 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.

Josh Gabriel and Dave Dresden each started out on their individual musical paths' in the early 80s, at the peak of the New Wave scene, influenced by bands like Depeche Mode, The Cure and Yaz. Gabriel played percussion in elementary and high school orchestras and bands, bought his first Moog synthesizer in 1981 and has been making music with computers since 1985. He later obtained a BFA degree in composition from California Institute of the Arts University and studied the science of sound at the prestigious Royal Music Conservatory/Institute of Sonology in Den Hague, The Netherlands. After receiving his degree, he worked in various post-production studios for clients such as Sony, Disney, Sega and Odd world. Gabriel moved on to create Mixman® music software and acted as co-founder of the company Mixman Technologies Inc. for 8 years.
Dresden's impressive career started with Djing, which he has done for the past 20 years. He has also held high profile music industry jobs such as writer for artist interviews, been a music reviewer and drove A&R for Promo Only. Dresden has compiled mix CD's and compilations for several record labels, scouted music for BBC's Pete Tong, and was a radio DJ and music director for both Internet and radio stations with a world wide listening base.
The duo lives and produce in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
