BIOGRAPHY

WD4D aka Waylon Dungan is one of Seattle’s most talented and ambitious beat scientists whose bold style has injected new sonic fusions into the city’s hip hop and electronic music communities. Versatile and always fresh, WD4D’s sound ranges from left-field experimental beats and funky upbeat dance music to jazzed-up hip hop and soulful underground rap.

Producing and DJing for almost sixteen years, WD4D was recently dubbed “The Feel-Good DJ of the Decade” by Seattle’s The Stranger newspaper. This innovative producer’s dedication to his craft has resulted in an impressive discography; his debut album Some Assembly Required (2005) was followed by a slew of both signed and unsigned releases, including his latest EP Post-Hyphy-Romanticrunk (2010) that features a crew of female vocalists from the area.

A skilled turntablist who embraces both the digital and vinyl realms, WD4D takes unpredictable twists and blasts the hinges off genre definitions with his inventive and eclectic style. Not only a knowledgeable producer but an engaging performer as well, WD4D was named champion of Seattle’s 2010 Battle of the Mega-Mixes. Deeply involved in the local arts scene, WD4D has released music on Seattle-based label Fourthcity, and also scored the original music for the theatrical dance performance In Fere.

When he is not pushing forward his unique beat-flipping sound, WD4D is supporting the musical community and promoting other artists who blend futuristic hip hop with electronic possibilities. One of the founding DJs of KBCS 91.3’s Saturday night Zulu Radio, WD4D has co-hosted the popular radio program for five years. This busy producer is also a resident at the weekly future beat and breakers party Stop Biting, one of the most forward-thinking nights of music in the city.

With plenty of initiative and industry savvy to match his sharp production skills, WD4D is an unstoppable force that brings new music to light- and then sets it on fire. Look for more beat-heavy badness in the clubs, on the radio and in the studio from WD4D as he further develops his original sound and his presence on the international electronic stage continues to expand.
