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!

ManDanceTM

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:

 

Ho Ho HO!

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.

 

ManDanceTM:  1977 - 1982

is a 2-CD set with 22 dance favorites from 1977-1982 that collectively capture the unbridled, ecstatic energy of that period.

 

ManDanceTM II:  1975 - 1982

is a followup to ManDanceTM with more dance favorites from that era.

 

ManDanceTM:  House Blend

is an uptempo blend of house and other contemporary dance songs with lots of rhythm and few words.

 

ManDanceTM:  Big Beautiful Love Machine

is a fun, perky collection.

 

Obsession

…is a compilation of dance songs all about love and desire -- attachment.

 

Bronski Beat & The Communards:  The Officer Wes ’86 Mix

…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.
