pezzner


David Brian Pezzner was born in Tarzana, California in 1975 and currently lives in Seattle, Washington. He is 5 foot 7 inches in height and weighs about 165 lbs. His brother, Bill works at the Port Of Seattle and has four children, two of whom are actually step-children. Bill’s wife owns a local publication and is a skilled bicyclist (even though she has not gone professional.)
When David works in his studio where he makes electronic music, his wife brings him a drink and discusses her day. The door-keeper comes in to give him a telegram sent the previous year from the Eolian Islands.

In 2010 he wrote an album of music which was released by Freerange records. A year later David’s first and only daughter, Eloise Sylvia was born. She was 5 pounds 11 ounces at birth. David spoke only English and cooked meals for his family every day until 2013 when a company called Systematic Recordings contracted him for another album.
Besides writing music for night clubs and headphones, Pezzner composes music for vision and function, and teaches electronic music writing concepts to anyone who will pay him money.

He sleeps exactly like any other man but, as you will no doubt have noticed, he is not an orthodox painter of the old school, but rather a modern artist. A designer.

Bottom Forty: Why do you play music?
Pezzner: Because I can’t stop. I’m addicted to sound. When I find music that I think people should hear, I am pretty relentless at making sure they hear it. I made music my job because I almost feel like it’s my duty. Aside from being my job, I see the work I do almost like a form of social justice, pulling the good stuff out of the massive pile of noise and garbage that is out there in the worlds music library and bringing it to you so that its easier for you to find it.

BF: What do you see as your role in the music world going into the future?
P: I’m just going to do what I do, my art, and display it for people in the best way I know how. My role is to keep trying to find new beats and sounds and keep people thinking while they are dancing.

BF: Favorite label or artist from the past year?
P: Can I just rattle off some names? Keinemusic, &me, Monaberry, Robsoul, Joe, Popcorn, Cheus, Dorian Concept, and Harvey Sutherland. There are so many others but this is just a quick short list.

BF: What are you looking forward to most this year?
P: Some quality time with my family. A good nights sleep. Seeing what the next random place my music will take me.

Nark (a.k.a. Kevin Kauer, Editor in Chief of Nark Magazine, Bottom Forty creator and Q Nightclub resident) has been exposing himself at parties around the nation, hip to hip with the finest musicians and record selectors around such as In Flagranti, Jacques Renault, Honey Soundsystem, Tim Sweeney, Horse Meat Disco, Moon Boots, Hunee, Sleazy McQueen, Juanita More, DJ Assault, House of Stank and many more. His constant drive to send a dance floor through space keeps a flowing stream of classic club and post-modern disco at your feet, just waiting to tango." "Kevin Kauer has been an unstoppable force in the Seattle party scene. He was worked with just about every venue imaginable creating an array of events with creativity, passion, and impeccable design, not to mention the hectic DJ schedule that has taken this young man up and down the west coast and solidified him as a key player in the dance world." -Blueyedsoul "Kevin gets his spot in the Seattle Peach 100 for always doing the most and for constantly pushing the envelope in terms of material–his photos and parties are full of drag queens, burlesque dancers and other glamazonia, and he can play a dance set that burns up the floor without resorting to tired top 40 hits." -Seattle Peach "..the beats coming from Stallion Saturdays at Rebel more than made up for all the unyielding musculature in the club. Seattle's DJ Nark had appeared for the evening, sporting fetching neckwear and spinning even more fetching, not-corny-at-all jams from disco greats to more current, creepy-good modern bangers. By the end of the night the place was packed.." -Caitlin Donohue, San Francisco Bay Guardian
