With elements of dubstep, electro, glitch, hip hop, and even classical music mixed in, Rise Of The Weasel King will serve both the dance floors and the thinking man`s ipod equally. Don Winsley`s music has always been particularly hard to classify and this becomes even more apparent when viewing his musical background.
According to Don Winsley, `I make baroque dance music. I`ve always had a strong interest in classical theory, I love the melodic and rhythmic complexity of it. My father is an internationally accomplished pianist and I grew up learning a lot about music and playing a wide variety of instruments. I feel that electronic music is one of the most exciting avenues for creative expression we have today, because the palate of sounds is virtually limitless. I like to translate the complexity and intricacy of classical music into something that is high energy, exciting, heavy, and fun. Imagine an evil weasel playing a harpsichord, bathed in strobe lights while a massive crowd of people rises and falls, jumping in unison. I wanted to evoke that image in people`s heads with this LP`.
