Dislexik, otherwise known as Jeff Prankev, has been creating electronic music for 20 years, with this year marking the 10th anniversary of his first commercial release. In that time he has worked with ten labels, both Canadian and internationally. The styles have ranged from his earlier breakbeat works to his ongoing tech house releases on Gold N Tech Records and more recently, harder techno.
If there was a commonality to all of these genre-jumping releases, it would be the use of dark textures and melodies. This isn’t that surprising since he comes from a background of industrial and heavy metal music and was the longtime drummer and programmer for local horror rockers The New Jacobin Club. He is currently rehearsing with them for a couple of fill-in gigs in June.
