Band Spotlight #19: Dresden and Johnston

It’s official! The production team of Dave Dresden and Mikael Johnston have become dance music’s next remix gurus and THE ‘go to’ producers for all things EDM. And the East Bay Express is bringing this duo together, for the first time ever live on stage, at the Best of the East Bay Party. Dave Dresden and Mikael Johnston are no strangers to success. Both are electronic music pioneers.  Both have risen above the mundane world of mediocrity to establish musical legacies in their own right.

Already citing two Billboard Hot Club Party chart toppers with Lily Allen’s“The Fear”, and Nadia Ali’s “Love Story”, the elite production duo Dresden and Johnston is carving a very rugged and well earned niche into the ever evolving EDM market.

Both Dave and Mykael have made very successful careers within the EDM scene, Dave with Gabriel and Dresden and Mikael with Warner Brothers act Mephisto Odyssey.

With reputations for writing compelling and very danceable music that touches people the world over, this team is simply on the brink of super stardom. Both Dave and Mikael have a sixth sense on what works on a dancefloor.

You won’t find filler music from Dresden and Johnston. That is just a fact. While many remixers take a day to chop up and regurgitate a track, Dresden and Johnston often rewrite the entire song to give it the sound and feeling that they are proud to put their name to. People expect a tight production along with melodies and a signature hook, something Dresden and Johnston have truly mastered.

As producers and remixers, they have worked individually and collectively with some of music industries elite; The Killers, Janes Addiction, and Lily Allen to name but a few.
