DJ DASH aka Dash EXP (Marcus Goodsell)
Dash: a mark of punctuation, creating a rythmic language between seemingly disparate forms- Dash EXP is an artist of connections and manipulations for nearly a decade, in electronic dance music including: jungle/drum & bass, dubstep/house/2-step, and hip-hop. His main influences are the musique concréte movement of the 1940s and 50's, lead by Shaeffer and Stockhausen; Nine Inch Nails; Roni Size, early American Grunge and various experimental media artists like Gary Hill, Vito Acconci and Jack Smith.
Born and raised in New York, Dash's father was a DJ, literally planting the seed for a life of musical escapades. Dash EXP currently resides in Seattle, where he founded the city's chapter of Konkrete Jungle, American stateside's original jungle dance party. He also consistently plays at some of the longest running nights in the country, including the notorious D&B Tuesdays in Seattle, and Konkrete Jungle NYC.
Studying at Alfred University in NY (BFA), he began hosting a weekly radio show called “Beats Dimes & Life” on WALF 89.7 FM. It was here that Dash defined himself as a CUT above the competition by being the first DJ in the stations history to mix live on air. Refusing to slow down, Dash established the “Kum Curek Productions” crew, and began to host parties to expose western NY to the underground Jungle/DnB sound.
He is currently continuing his radio transmission, with regular appearances on DNBTV.com, Global Vortex Radio, and Seattle's Vortex 89.5FM. You'll also catch Dash sharing the bill regularly for industry heavy hitters like R.A.W., Reid Speed, Dara, DJ ODI, Armin Van Buren, Empress and Darude to name a few.
Ongoing projects include production on various Stateside dubstep labels and a recent side project, ThunderBolt LightningStorm, heavily influenced by Mashup, Electro & Baltimore club music. He has also redirected his production interest to his first love, drum & bass/jungle and has a slew of fresh production to see the light of day in 2009.
