Our local scene has been one that’s had its fair share of ups and downs trying to bring hard dance into town. Slowly but surely though, it’s been taking root. In just the last year, the Northwest has had artists like Headhunterz, Coone, Brennan Heart, Psyko Punkz, Wildstylez, and Angerfist all pass through to enthusiastic crowds. Helping lay the groundwork for this movement since late 90s though has been our very own DJ Wheelz.
You may recognize him as the opener for just about every major hard dance act that’s blown through town in recent years, but his history in Seattle goes back way further than that. For nearly 90 minutes, Wheelz brings us on a journey through his origins in punk, industrial, and then into the harder avenues of dance music. You’d be surprised what you hear about our fair city’s go-to DJ for everything hardstyle. Listen in below for the full interview with The Dance Music Diaries and let us know what you think!
