SAE was the best fit for me because of the school’s intensive hands on learning environment. I loved the facilities, faculty, and curriculum, and I believe that the experience prepared me well for what I’m doing now.

Daniel Bisbing, a 2014 graduate of SAE Institute Los Angeles’ Audio Technology Program, has launched Arcane Talent, an L.A.-based agency that represents some of America’s premier bass music DJs and producers.

“My focus for Arcane is to support producers who work in all genres of bass music, including dubstep, drum and bass, bass house, beats, and more,” says Bisbing. “When recruiting new additions to my roster, I search for talented creators who push boundaries and who aren’t afraid to step outside of their comfort zones.”

A native of Takoma Park, MD, Bisbing moved with his family to Huntington Beach, CA in 2004. His interest in audio technology began when he was 17 and had developed a passion for DJing. While initially a fan of hip hop, Bisbing slowly acquired a taste for EDM after discovering such artists as Death From Above 1979, Justice, and Daft Punk. Following his graduation from Huntington Beach’s Marina High School in 2008, he pursued a career as a professional bass music DJ, and soon began gigging at such high profile events as SXSW and the Winter Music Conference.

As his DJ work progressed, Bisbing sought to develop his knowledge about studio recording and music production, and in 2013, he enrolled in the Audio Technology Program at SAE Institute’s Los Angeles campus.

“After looking at a number of colleges in the L.A. area that offered audio technology education, I felt that SAE was the best fit for me because of the school’s intensive hands on learning environment,” says Bisbing. “I loved the facilities, faculty, and curriculum, and I believe that the experience prepared me well for what I’m doing now.”

While studying at SAE L.A., Bisbing landed an internship at SMOG, which is is one of the founding record labels, artist development hubs, and lifestyle brands in the North American dubstep and bass music movement. After graduating from SAE, he was hired as the A&R and Marketing Director for SMOG Records, which has been described by MTV as a “pioneering incubator of bass music in America.”

For SAE students and grads who wish to pursue careers in bass music production (and possible employment at SMOG or Arcane), Bisbing recommends that they put in extra work and go above and beyond what is expected of them.

“To thrive and get ahead in their careers, aspiring engineers, producers, artists, or music business pros must ultimately create their own positions where they’re irreplaceable,” says Bisbing. “Most importantly, they need to maintain a consistent level of positivity, persistence, and confidence.”
