Gotta love it when a classically trained musical prodigy shucks tradition to become a totally badass DJ. OK, well, Will Wiesenfeld, known to the glow stick crowd as Baths, is perhaps the only example I can come up with to demonstrate such a phenomenon, but hopefully other electronically minded folks will follow his stunning example. Indeed, the artist known by his cleansing moniker sure has been mopping the floor with the competition lately. Said floor-mopping includes two albums to his credit (including last year’s incredibly well-received Obsidian), one collection of B-sides, and a whole hell of a lot of rocking live shows. No doubt, Wiesenfeld/Baths has definitely proven himself the master at finding the squeaky clean touch in between layers of decedent, dirty beats. If you’re up for busting a little move on a Monday night, have at the Pyramid Scheme. You can clean up later.
