About

Wylie Cable is the founder of Los Angeles based Dome of Doom Records, an independent artist owned label that's been putting out new experimental and underground music over the past 7 years from many of LA's finest up-and-comers as well established beat scene veterans (Daedelus, Linafornia, DJ Nobody, Huxley Anne, Elusive, Space Gang, ELOS, Swisha, to name a few...)  Wylie Cable has released six full length albums on Dome of Doom since the labels inception, and continues to produce new records and tour with artists from the Dome of Doom roster.

The “chaos creates art” adage is only half true. Channeling your influences, ideas, and emotions into impactful art requires singular talent and unwavering dedication. A multi-instrumentalist, producer, DJ, concert organizer, and visual artist, Wylie Cable brilliantly orchestrates chaos both in and outside of the studio.

When performing at clubs and festivals with eminent electronic artists like Salva, Daedelus, Moody Good and many more, Cable arranges dynamic rhythms and disparate genres to create an immersive, high-octane show, blending and transforming everything from head-nodding hip-hop to sub-shattering bass music and ethereal psychedelia. Working with Strangeloop’s Teaching Machine collective, Cable also formerly moonlighted as skilled a VJ, helping artists like Flosstradamus, Autolux and Lauryn Hill achieve striking live visuals.

In the hours that he isn’t behind the turntables or working on his next album, Cable’s channeled his passion for music into running one of the Los Angeles’ most promising record labels. Since 2011, Dome of Doom has been a bastion for forward-thinking electronic music, an incubator for the next generation of innovative artists spawned from Los Angeles’s famed “beat scene.” With over 100 releases— many available via cassette and vinyl—the label is a driving force in L.A. and beyond, releasing albums from rising stars like Huxley Anne, Blake Skowron and Holly as well as lauded veterans such as Daedalus, Odd Nosdam and Kenny Segal. A tireless worker, Cable handles every imaginable task (e.g., shipping, booking, graphic design) for the label.

This year, Cable will release his seventh studio album on Dome of Doom, ‘Lemniscate’. Conceptually, the Los Angeles artist found inspiration for the album’s design in his obsession with the concept of infinity and its mathematical entanglement with the spiritual concepts of the afterlife and the infinite nature of reincarnation and past selves. In algebraic geometry, a lemniscate is any of several figure-eight or ∞-shaped curves.

Now in its seventh year, Dome of Doom has one foot in the physical past with an ear for contemporary and futuristic sounds. Each project is pressed to a limited run of cassettes (most of which sell out) and is available for your downloading/streaming pleasure (check the entire catalog on their Bandcamp). No matter the genre or subgenre, each project features an array of innovative instrumentals, the emphasis on head-nodding low end and the ethereal. With releases from foundational and influential artists, as well as promising newcomers, the label serves as a bridge that the LA beat scene needs to continue to evolve.
