Feeling a bit camera shy


Reticent was formed early in 1996, by Fredrick Gabelmann, Drew Whiteted (aka GuRu), and Tony DeSaro (aka Jedeye).

Fredrick being a prodigy of legendary skill, having previous experience, and an extensive knowledge base of the production side, of electronic music, wanted his ideas to be examined and cross referenced by his peers. This is when Fredrick joined forces with Jedeye and Guru, the duo that arguably holds the sole responsibility for bringing the progressive sound to southern Ohio. Jedeye and GuRu single handedly introduced the new sound of house music from Dayton all the way down to Cincinnati starting in the early 90’s. They have brought and played along side icons such as Jimmy Van M., Sasha, John Debo, Christopher Lawrence, Gene Carbonell, Terry Francis, Frankie Bones, Terry Mullins, Hardware, and many more. Frustrated that they did not have access to the most upfront music that these icons have, they decided to join forces with Fredrick to begin creating there own upfront music.

In 2001 Reticent began submitting their original spin on the progressive sound to various labels around the globe and were subsequently signed to the UK’s, Nascent Recordings. Reticent released three chart topping singles to include “Hibernation”, “Their Mind”, and “Loois”. Reticent exploded onto the scene with only three releases which graced the boxes of “A” list DJ’s such as John Digweed, Steve Lawler, Hernon Cattaneo, Lee Buridge, Jimmy Van M., Chris Fortier, Paul Van Dyke, and many more.

After 2 years of allowing the industry to run Reticent, they decided to take the future of their music into their own hands. Ultimately, as the result of blood, sweat, and tears, Reticent Recordings was founded in the fall of 2003 and warmly welcoming the electronic dance community.

Reticent Recordings’ debut single was an absolute success. Murph’s “Electric House” with remixes by Dave Wood (Voyager, Knights Groove, Steelyard) and Reticent, saw the release sitting in the top 5 on many industry charts for a consistant 3 weeks. The release also landed in the box of John Digweed as his opening record for the Delta Heavy 2 tour and subsequently played in many more of his opening sets around the globe.

But it has been a hard road traveled by Reticent with many personal challenges and family tragedies during 2004. After the labels initial release, Reticent had dipped below the radar, quietly planning their explosive return to the industry wiith monthly club nights held in some of OH’s famous venues which startied in December of 2004. Reticent plans to bring the progressive sound back on a global scale having now relocated to the Boston area and establishing shows in Vancouver. Reticent will also be launching an online radio show partnered with many of the industry's top talent and labels in the Winter of 2005.

Reticent has now achieved four releases bearing their name, and with the launch of their new label, they have great expectations for some of their future releases. Reticent definitely brings uniqueness and freshness to the industry, and with the amount of talent, years of experience, and extensive dedication to their music, they are destined to leave their beats stained on every venue across the world.
