From Jack Kerouac to the Beach Boys to Death Cab For Cutie, the idyllic and sparsely populated central Californian town of Big Sur has long served as a source of creative inspiration for artists on them move. Dirtybird and Perfect Driver-releasing Ghostea has made the place his home. Although we can’t vouch for the clubbing scene there, the intrepid producer has benefitted from stepping out of the bustle of city-based dance scenes to hone his already classy house touch.
Ghostea is a mysterious sort of guy. He lives a quiet, mostly reclusive, slightly stoned life out in Big Sur and only ventures his way out of the tall trees for eccentric house raves up and down the west coast. His skills as both producer and DJ are undeniable, though, and as such he’s racked up releases on Main Course, This Ain’t Bristol, and Dirtybird with very little fuss.
