Album Only


Still only 22 years old, Wesley McBain aka Wezkez is another talent from the conveyor belt of Dance producers coming out of Durban in South Africa who is releasing their material on both local and international labels.

His collaboration with Garcon called Bastard Child was released by Louie Cut’s Strict Recordings in December 2016, his latest Off To Dance EP is available now, respected blog 3000 Deep released his collab Hitshop as an exclusive in January 2017, and he has another single collaboration with Garcon due May 2017 featuring the brilliant vocals of Joanne Cooke (which includes lyrics written with Timo ODV).

“I draw musical inspiration from a multitude of sources” says Wes. “I'm inspired by the sounds from the 80's era and have a love for vintage synths. My underlying genre is House but I don’t like to restrict myself. Synthwave, Funk, Disco, Deep and G-House are all influences.”

Having only started making DJ mixes on Ableton a couple of years ago, Wes has been steadily learning the ropes of production.

“The first 6 to 12 months of producing was difficult and slow going as I have no formal musical background” he explained. “What it lead me to do though was work tirelessly at sound design.”

He sees this as an important skill to set him apart. “To me, being able to design my own unique sounds is something that puts you a notch above and gives you the power to unleash creativity in full. I want tracks to be engrossing and something listeners can remember even after they take their earphones out. I hope to get to a place where my music can stand on its own, where people can pick out exactly which tracks are produced by me on first listen.”

“Working with Garcon has been one of the most important developments with my music. We are always pushing out ideas and so many can be finished and turned into songs. We learn and feed off each other, and our skills compliment one another. ‘Feelin Me’ is something I'm very proud to release with him and I hope listeners, and producers as well, appreciate the track.”

Wes’ first release was on First Edition, a part of the Deeps Sounds Network, and was a collaboration with Walshingtin. “Getting the support of a big label with a fan base of over 50000 people at the start really encouraged and drove me to produce more and better tracks”.
