Local Artist

Local Artist makes himself at home in our heads with his warm and enigmatic techno-house, staying in one place only long enough to make an atypical impression.

His unstuck, spry rhythms cause heads to nod and mouths to grin – this is a deep, enlivening, good time. Local Artists’s vibe nicely fits in with the almost imperceptibly new age, lounge-leaning house on Vancouver’s Mood Hut, a label that recently featured his work and other tracks on mix compilations and released a Slow Riffs ambient EP the label describes as “for healing use only” – flowing water and rainsticks are employed, but so are reverberating synth lines and crashing drums.

Wyatt’s therapeutic qualities carry over into his club music, keeping it balmy and vaguely introspective – his gorgeous debut EP on Anthony Naples’s Proibito powers its way into cosmic techno-land and his newest release, Feelings, moves along in an unhurried house groove, smoothed by long chords and sparked by reverberating dub twangs and horns.
