Chicago-based producer Bounte (Dean Dunakin) brings a compelling twist to electronic music by combining structural elements of electronica, jazz, pop, classical, and rock into a range of collage-like songs that groove easily, yet reveal their inventiveness to listeners who long to dig deeper. Pulling from this well of varied inspiration, Bounte artfully brings new vision into this constantly changing genre.
Bounte has released seven albums and EPs, landing licensing placements with MTV, Food Network, Discovery and others. He advocates collaborative work, remixing and producing other artists to help them find their voices, and jointly expand each others’ musical spectrums. He co-founded the beat boutique Beatserv, and started the Zen Dozer music label to assist Chicago bands in self-releasing their music.
