Doc B. Wildman is an American electronic music producer and live performer based in Richmond, VA. Doc has produced and composed multiple releases under various aliases since his first independent release in 2004. Covering a spectacular spectrum of styles with ease, through solo Doc B. Wildman productions and with collaborative projects 1UPYO, BumpREC, P Nimble, Dogfaced Boy, McLaw’s Drive, Richmond Banks Music or other permutations, Wildman has begun to establish himself as electronic music’s true Jack of All Trades.

The first release as Doc B. Wildman, ∞ Mind, was released independently in 2013 and featured Doc’s ability to rework obscure disco samples into Nu Disco grooves. Doc Wildman has a strong background in both acoustic and electronic instrumentation, and he was able to quickly navigate both components in his role as the primary composer and producer of 1UPYO‘s 2013 EP The Moment is NOW. The 2014 1UPYO concept album Bye Time, demonstrates Doc Wildman’s abilities to produce and compose a full-length LP for a full band, and a variety of guest artists.

Doc B. Wildman also enjoys remixing other artists. Check out these remixes and download them for FREE!

The book will feature drawings from Hewlett’s prolific 25-year career. The book’s release date is still unknown, but it ultimately could fill the void left by the inactivated Gorillaz, and provide some interesting material for fans who have been awaiting their next release.
