Officer Wes’ music
My dream is to put out music that I’d want to dance to! Over a decade ago I bought the gear, signed up for music classes at Sonic Academy, and went to work. I’ve been putting out a CD each year since. About a third of these tracks are the result of successfully recreating Sonic Academy projects.
I hope you enjoy!

Musical life before branching off to create my own:
Dance music has always thrilled me in that special way that makes me want to dance! I started intensely seeking out and buying the songs I heard. Eventually my collection grew to about 1200 twelve inch dance singles.
In college I began a 90-minute series of dance tapes called Disco Ho!TM There were over 60, with few repeats, when I began mixing digitally for CD format:
…was the first digital mix from this collection, created in 2003, a collection of great dance songs mixed beautifully, named with a nod to the dance tapes that preceded it.
is a 2-CD set with 22 dance favorites from 1977-1982 that collectively capture the unbridled, ecstatic energy of that period.
…is a followup to ManDanceTM with more dance favorites from that era.
…is an uptempo blend of house and other contemporary dance songs with lots of rhythm and few words.
…is a fun, perky collection.
…is a compilation of dance songs all about love and desire -- attachment.
…is perhaps my favorite all-around mix on many levels. Plaintive, ethereal, driving, gay; it showcases some beautiful work.
I found discogs: Music Database and Marketplace quite helpful when filling in some information lacking in my iTunes library.
