Fresh faced and fired up, the production duo Datguy has emerged on the dance music scene as top producers and high energy, dance floor moving DJs. Their productions have found there way onto the biggest compilations of recent years, several movie scores, and a choice variety of labels. Thatâs not to mention their tracks finding homes in the crates of some of the world’s most successful DJs.
Tony Mugavero and Geoff Haselgrove met in the early 90âs in the small suburban town of Lewisville, TX just outside Dallas. After borrowing belt-drive turntables from their parents and getting a basic 4-channel Radio Shack mixer, they started spinning records, collecting equipment, and writing their own music. Their first record came out in 1998 under the moniker Liquid Pulse on Illmatic Records, which was followed by releases on Sony (Malaysia), Tao Recordings, Renaissance, System, Domestic, Xlantic, Diffusion, and 10th Planet, with most being available on iTunes, Beatport, Yahoo!, WalMart, and all major download sites. They were also half of the production group Quadsquad that had the massive track âReachâ (Tao Recordings) appearing on James Zabielaâs Renaissance compilation “Alive”, as well as Palashâs compilation “One”. That track, which enjoyed extended chart success on Balance, was also selected for the upcoming Bulletproof Productions film ‘Loaded’. This film also includes a Datguy production âSpicyâ previously available on EDM Digital, as well as two scenes scored by Geoff and Tony for Bulletproof Productions.
As Datguy they have produced remixes for The Commodores (Universal / Motown / WishFM), The New Line Cinema Film ‘Domino’(Domestic / WishFM / King Solomon), Talvin Singh (Boom the film, India), Iris, Reflection Theory, and Triprocket, and as Quadsquad they have had remixes done by Habersham, Chris and Kai, and Trifactor. Their productions have received major support from Paul Oakenfold, Danny Tenaglia, Martin Villeneuve (MV), James Zabiela, DFuse, John Debo, Smight, Kazell, Palash, Mark Pappas, Low End Specialists, Kosmas Epsilon, Kreice, and many others. Other projects include music for commercials (Covad / Match.com), video games (In The Groove), websites, radio promotions, and dance theater, with a movie score coming up for Global Visionsâ next film ‘The Skinner Box’. They have also performed live, held residencies, and played countless events all over Texas and the US, and currently contribute to the global clubbing website Resident Advisor. Definitely guys to Watch!
