Reed Kackley, the Brooklyn-based producer operating under the moniker BAILE, makes texturally rich dance music inspired by house and downtempo.
Kackley creates textured electronic compositions that blend foley recordings and warm analog synthesizers with subtle ambient elements and the occasional full vocal performance from artists like Felicia Douglass (Dirty Projectors, Ava Luna), Kauf & K. Marie Kim.
He has been tapped to remix artists like Sasha, Beacon, Kauf, DRAMA & boerd. In turn his own tracks have been remixed by Tim Green, Baltra, Sasha & Anii. He has frequently received airplay from KCRW, Pete Tong & Danny Howard (BBC Radio 1), and coverage from sources like Mixmag, Complex, Clash, Fader, Deep House Amsterdam & When We Dip.
The last few years have found Kackley releasing music on Anjunadeep, Last Night On Earth, This Never Happened & ELEMENTS as well as on his own label Course. His single, ‘Amae’, was remixed by Sasha and included on his fabric 99 compilation.
His most recent release, ‘Forth’, is a melancholy mixture of synths & organic instrumentation set to textured percussion & peppered with vocal performances by Felicia Douglass (Dirty Projectors, Ava Luna) & K. Marie Kim.
