  • Biography
    Teaganbear (a.k.a Teagan Kelk) is an 18-year-old electro house / dubstep producer and DJ from Victoria, BC. He got his name from one of his best bros, Andrew Li, who made up the nickname through true inspiration given to him from the skies above. To him, the name signifies humility, friendship, love, honesty, authenticity, and many hilarious times. If you try to convince him that he should have kept his old name (DJ T-Flex), he will likely tell you that the name "T-Flex" sounded too arrogant and douchey, and he would rather be "but a humble bear."

    Teaganbear used to hate all electronic music, viewing it as "too easy and poppy." He preferred artists that made so-called "real" music, using acoustic instruments. This attitude was shattered in late 2010. As fate would have it, he was enjoying Radiohead very much and their albums "Amnesiac", "Kid A", and "Hail to the Thief" brought him newfound respect and love for electronic music. Also, suddenly all of his friends were craving this magical new drug called DUBSTEP. The huge bombtrack called "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" by Skrillex was the gateway drug to dubstep for the Teaganbear.

    Since he had always thought that making electronic music was easier than making "real" music, he tried his hand at making some of his own in December 2010. He was surprised that there were no dubstep remixes of the amazing music in Super Mario RPG, so he decided his first track would be called "Bowser Dubstep," a fancy dubstep/electro-house remix of the Bowser Fight music in Super Mario RPG. He then discovered that it was much more difficult and frustrating to try and get a computer to make the sounds you want it to than writing a song on his guitar. He decided to commit much of his time to figuring out how to make this crazy new type of music.

    Teaganbear proceeded to make many more electronic music tracks, such as:

    - "Jamie's Nerdrage" (a song featuring his bro Jamie saying very angry unpleasant things on the mic)
    - "Ra

  1. Hahaha! These have all been interesting and funny to read. Honestly I don't even care that there's a lot of negative feedback, it's just awesome to have so many people talking about something that I created. It's a cool feeling. This track was my first one ever, and from being a drummer I was accustomed to using one limb to hit each drum/cymbal so I guess I thought it would be okay to use a drum machine similarly, with crap drum samples. I also had no patience or appreciation for production techniques. So there are a lot of things I know I could improve in this track, but I still love it fo
