Talent Not to Be Overlooked: Wigbert “Wigzen” Caro

WigzenThere is something to be said about a talented performer especially in the electronic music genre. Jokes have been made in regards to the lack of complex skills needed to play a set, no rx you know … “pushing buttons” and all that.

However, our friend Masha from Magnetic magazine had the pleasure of witnessing a blossoming local Boston producer, Wigzen.

He has managed to encompass the complexity of live mixing as well as exude a remarkable personality that is as infectious as his music and live performance. He is a highly overlooked talent that hides in the thick brush of the ever so mellow Boston underground music scene.

Needless to say, take a listen to one of his remixes. It will show you why you need to pay attention to him.

Wigzen came to Boston from the Dominican Republic in 2007 and from there began studying music at the Berklee College of Music. He graduated Berklee in 2012 with a strong background in Jazz and Bass music.

He used his newfound skill set and infused it with his exposure of Caribbean vibes to develop a style and set himself apart from his peers. Wigzen truly believed that the future of music, at that point, lied in the electronic genre.

Wigzen’s passion for House, Techno and Electronica is too strong for one simple generic association. His productions take inner influence from a range of musical styles from vintage drum machine funk to world folk music.

“I do not want to limit myself to a genre”

Straight out of college, Wigzen caught the “producing bug” and furiously began to release new tracks every week, spending an upwards of 8 hours a day on just music production, calling it his, “pilgrimage”.

“I kinda saturated the market by myself, me and my little Soundcloud account. Just releasing tracks every week and that was like my challenge”

Wigzen, on top of being an amazing producer, also happens to be an incredible and well-respected instructor at Mmmmaven and at Berklee College of Music. He finds the experience of teaching others highly rewarding. He remarks that he tries to teach others the best way he remembers learning, through energy and dynamic production.
