Biography

Jakalope caught a lot of people off-guard when producer Dave Ogilvie rolled out his industrial pop hybrid back in 2004. Although the producer is a soft-spoken gentleman and father in real life, his work nonetheless precedes him, instilling a subtle sense of trepidation in anyone who’s perused a CV that includes Skinny Puppy, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails , and Marilyn Manson among others… who knew that the Vancouver-based studio-boffin was as much a sucker for a good pop song as he was an architect of some of the darkest, fin-de-millennium sonic nightmare-scapes to infect popular culture since avant-gardists like Throbbing Gristle gave up trying?
“There’s a Michael Jackson influence,” confesses the producer/composer/musician with a gentle chuckle, about the third Jakalope album. “I made a conscious effort to look into the type of stuff I enjoy, so there’s a very heavy Jackson-factor in there, as well as a bit of a Donna Summer-thing going on.”

It’s one of the tastier ironies of Ogilvie’s catalogue that the pulsating influence of Donna Summer’s disco-synth svengali Giorgio Moroder is already felt in some of the more outré work he’s done in the past – albeit shrouded in night terrors – but it’s also no surprise.
