Electronic/House(Work in Progress) by BeatMaster Slim
Slim: Who is BeatMaster Slim?
Josh Dykzeul is a highly driven 24-year-old electronic music artist. He was born in the small town of Danville, California where he began his journey into the realm of music and sound. It all began with his older brother introducing him to electronic music artists such as ZEDD, Skrillex, and Deadmau5. ZEDD's track, “Clarity,” was one of Josh's first notable inspirations that later led to the creation of the alias BeatMaster Slim.
Josh began producing music in 2014 and released his debut EP, Gorgeous, on July 20th, 2018. After releasing Gorgeous, Josh has released several other tracks. Each track is unique and is its own work of art. Josh, similar to David Bowie, doesn’t stick to one specific style of music. Instead of conforming to mainstream trends, his tracks are emotionally driven at the time of creation.
Upon graduating High School, Josh moved to Bend, Oregon where he attended Central Oregon Community College and earned his AAOT. Josh recently graduated from University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Technology, and resides in Bend, Oregon.
The name BeatMaster Slim originated from a physician misdiagnosing Josh with an irregular heartbeat in his Sophomore year of High School. An echocardiogram revealed that he was so skinny, due to excessive Track and Cross Country training, that his heart sounded noisier than normal.
