Few in dance music have enjoyed a career as enduring as that of Josh Gabriel and Dave Dresden.
One of the definitive voices of dance music at the turn of the millennium, the duo returned in 2017, reinvigorated, with crowd-funded album ‘The Only Road’. It was their first artist LP in over 10 years.
An indie-spirited curveball, the album was a critically acclaimed phenomenon: 17 million streams worldwide. A global tour taking in Creamfields, Burning Man, EDC and Tomorrowland. Gabriel & Dresden’s first GRAMMY nomination courtesy of a barn-storming Cosmic Gate remix of ‘Only Road’.
Embracing their return to the manic, disorienting life of touring, the duo sought respite in the tranquility of their Spokane studio. Here, ensconced in the stillness of nature, the next chapter of the Gabriel & Dresden story was written: a new album called ‘Remedy’.
A collaborative project alongside their 650 Kickstarter backers who helped craft the project, ‘Remedy’ grows from the intimate stories of ’No One’s To Blame’ and ‘Remember’ to the invigorating, more dance floor orientated, moments ‘Coming On Strong’ and ’Something Bigger’.
There’s a unity to the narrative as well, with Sub Teal (Brittany O’Neil) providing vocals across much of the journey, punctuated with the brooding sound of Jan Burton on ‘Keep On Holding’ and fellow Spokane native Centre on ‘Remember’.
Once again championing the analogue, indie minded side of electronic music that has made Gabriel & Dresden such a pioneering force, ‘Remedy’ is available digitally, on CD and on vinyl, with information on the bands’ international tour to follow.
