Their creations blend the soulful, melodic stylings of Liquid Drum & Bass with a barrage of deeper elements. An addictive sound complimented with the seamless, pin-point percussion, Reflektor's mindful productions are a sure fire way to submit yourself to another planet within their musical realm.
But they don't stop there… Reflektor has a live edge with their in-depth library to go with an uncanny ability to blend tracks. Mixing seamlessly and leaving fans on their toes for the next transition, Reflektor has without a doubt become a staple in the West Coast Drum & Bass scene.
Mixes + tunes:
JUICE! / DnB Radio / Salem-PDX
After broad exposure to Jazz, Salsa, and R&B growing up, Donahue Holland aka Definition: Positive learned to appreciate the deeper side of some of these genres, and how it affects and drives emotion. His passion for music and mixing exploded in the Los Angeles rave scene during the mid 90’s, nurturing this new love for electronic music. Once experiencing Drum and Bass, he shifted gears permanently; realizing that this style was the missing part of his ‘musical soul.’
Former resident DJ at Nova Express Cafe, Futurebound Radio, LA, and LiquidBass.net, Def Pos became an LA staple representing these unique sounds. Since relocating to Salem, guest appearances have included Bassdrive, Signal Flow Radio LA, DnBTV and countless live performances all around Oregon with some heavy-hitters such as the Bachelors of Science, Artificial Intelligence, Ben Soundscape, ASIDES, Calculon, MC Question Mark, Doc Scott, and more.
Now host of the weekly radio show “Atmospheriq Tides,” Fridays, and resident artist at JUICE! Drum and Bass nights in Portland, Def Pos delivers soulful grooves and funky baselines with a level of quality and sound not to be missed.
