JOEL DICKINSON

 

 

 

Joel Dickinson is a remixer, electronic music producer and recording engineer based in Minneapolis, MN. From Inaya Day to Green Day, Natalie Merchant to Lady Gaga, the Steve Miller Band to Kevin Aviance – Joel restyles every song (new and old) with his special twist of catchy riffs and synthetic wizardry.

 

In a career nearly a decade long, he has been a programmer and engineer for Junior Vasquez; including work on mixes for Cyndi Lauper, Cher and Whitney Houston. He is a co-member of the remix team Audio Assembly who have produced for artists such as Karen Young, Taylor Dayne, Kimberly Davis and Kelly Clarkson. He is also a co-producer of the Hell & Keller remix project, who have produced for Raquela, Willow Smith, The Human League and others. Until 2010, Joel was producing solo projects under the moniker of “Thee Werq’n B!tches.” His remix and subsequent video for Thee Werq’n B!tches ft. Faye Dunaway – “No Wire Hangers!” was given the title of “Gayest Thing on the Internet” by VH1′s Best Week Ever in 2008. Many of his remixes and productions have attained Billboard Club Top Ten charting status, including Eddie X ft. Niki Harris – “This Time Baby” (#5) and C+C Music Factory ft. Scarlett Santana – Rain (#8). His remixes of Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5″ and Bette Davis’ “I’ve Written a Letter to Daddy” (from “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?”) are regarded as camp club classics and are played somewhere in the world nearly every night to a rapturous response. A number of his productions have also attained more widespread cult status, including the Minneapolis house classic, “Phreakshow,” and his club remix of Liza Minnelli’s “Cabaret,” endorsed by the original New York broad herself.
