The king of electronic chillout pop, DJ Unwind sets the mood for many of our listeners. His current production skills set the bar high and his true talent and craftsmanship ensures a high rotation on our service. Aspiring electronic producers take note. That’s why DJ Unwind is a top pick for our pop and lounge playlists. DJ Unwind is the pseudonym of Minneapolis based producer and self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Brad LaBarbera. As DJ Unwind, LaBarbera has released three short-format albums which are especially noted for their laid-back production and outside-the-box fusion of his unique and wide-ranging stylistic influences.

Unwind’s 2006 debut release Truth Beyond the Beat, is layered in jazz-infused 90’s hip-hop and received positive critical reviews from Okayplayer, a popular online taste-making community. The initial success of his first release carried over into a Japanese re-issue on Libyus Records that cemented Unwind as a truly global artist. He pursues this new-found cosmopolitan audience with the experimental lounge of 2010’s Far From Here EP. Released on his own Velvet Music Group label, “Far From Here,” pushes him out of the hip-hop comfort zone of his previous efforts with a focus on wide-lens atmospheres that progress with a distinctly European sway. By pairing up with precocious Australian vocalist, Hannah Karydas (aka Eves the Behavior), for 2013’s Epais DJ Unwind has continued his mission to construct his signature sound.
