Bezier – Mina

Bezier, or as he’s known on the streets and in the sheets, Robert Yang, is responsible for some of my favorite dance music of the recent past. Using sounds and rhythmic structures that are influenced by Hi-NRG history, he twists and upends the genre to great success with productions that I’m always impressed by. I…
