Directly from the Dominican Republic, comes the new Valetronic Podcast 048, with an exclusive mix from the co-founder of “Yet! Records” label, Jee Bear.
Jee Bear got into music at an early age as a rock drummer in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. As he grew up he was introduced to the psychedelic world experienced in the 1960s and 70s and to the music of bands like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, Pink Floyd and The Doors to name a few. His passion for music and love for classic rock eventually led him to Disco and ultimately to House music.
In 2008 as he felt his voice wasn’t being heard by his bandmates he decides to go solo. After years of self-exploration in 2011 he resurfaces with a DJ act playing in local bars and clubs. Exploring various genres and names in the early stage of his DJ career, JCtheBear, was without a doubt the most prominent of his aliases, before he definitely settled on Jee Bear.
Now he is an artist with upcoming releases on labels like Smiley Fingers and Yet! Records. As a promoter he has greatly influenced the Dominican dance music culture by both supporting local talent and billing world renown Djs in his events. Co-founder of the labels Tanama Records and Yet! Records, with the mind set on owning his own club someday.
In the new edition of Valetronic Podcast 048, Dominican Jee Bear delivers an exquisite mix, which displays a top selection of minimalist gems.
With a neat technique and carefully selected cuts, Jee Bear delivers an exclusive mix loaded with superb music for our senses. 11 tracks that give shape to a progressive set, in crescendo, at slow burning. A journey without return through the quaint Minimalist strands.
One of those surgical mix that are appreciated as a whole, designed as a musical panorama, orchestrated and not as a set of song after song. Without further ado, we invite you to enjoy Jee Bear‘s best sound, in this new delivery of Valetronic Podcast.
