12th Planet is the electronic music pioneer whose off-axis beats and subsonic frequencies orbit on the forefront of global bass culture. Recently named "Los Angeles dubstep god" by Rolling Stone, 12th Planet AKA John Dadzie and his influential label SMOG Records are widely credited for bringing the British movement stateside, and continue to be a crucial force in the evolution of electronic music. 12th Planet's DJ sets now include a myriad of styles that reflect the current, diverse landscape of EDM music and continue to display his role as an essential taste maker in the dance music world.
Since 2006, 12th Planet has also led what's become one of the most thriving underground movements in electronic music, with MTV calling the crew a "pioneering incubator of bass music in America." The SMOG crew, with 12th Planet at the helm, continues to produce top quality events in Los Angeles and beyond, always pushing forward as an internationally recognized leader in U.S. bass music. However, John Dadzie's role has extended beyond just bass music to encompass the whole of EDM, including what he recently described to OC Weekly as "transition music," — a sound that incorporates diverse styles and BPMs. His DJ set is no longer classifiable by genre but best dubbed "a trip to the 12th Planet and back."
The mysterious ƱZ came up on the SoundCloud scene about 4 months ago, with the amazing ŤɌ∆Ҏ ᶊῌῗ† series. With huge support from DJ's worldwide, the likes of Diplo, Flosstradamus, JWLS, Toddla T, Baauer, and Craze to name a few, UZ's debut EP was released on Jeffree's, a sub-label to Mad Decent.
"UZ tunes are drunken energy sub bass and cartoon horn stabs that make my stomach feel weird and my feet shuffle," Diplo writes. Raw and powerful, but with a laid back tempo, UZ gives listeners a chance to slow down without losing momentum.
San Francisco-based producer, Antiserum, is a permanent fixture atop the cresting wave that is forward-thinking bass music. Over the years, his inventive and ever-evolving style has landed his records on many of dance music's leading imprints including OWSLA, SMOG, Firepower, and Never Say Die, in turn gaining earnest support from every heavyweight of the genre including Skrillex, Diplo, Bassnectar, RL Grime, 12th Planet, and countless others. From hip hop-inspired highlights like "Brick Squad Anthem" and "Trippy" produced with longtime collaborator, Mayhem, to the cutting edge sounds of his most recent single "Boom" with Tha Trickaz and Snails collab "Wild", Antiserum's sub-heavy output has continually pushed boundaries in bass music with voracious creativity.
As with every year, 2015 saw Antiserum bringing his electrifying sets around the globe, hitting nearly 40 cities in the US with Crizzly from January to May before touring in Australia and New Zealand over summer. After a few months locked away in the studio, Antiserum will be hitting the road once again this Fall with his pal Mayhem, embarking on his first-ever headline tour where he'll premiere all of the new material he's been making this year.
A budding talent in crafting popfriendly African and Latin inspired bass music. Pronounced "gesture," this DJ/producer has quickly become the face of world bass music for some of the most successfully emergent music genres. Mastering twerk, moombahton, and zouk bass, his productions are diverse on a literally global scale, making JSTJR a quickly rising name.
A Chicago-raised but New Orleans living college student started music by writing for popular EDM blog Run The Trap before decided to make music of his own. The quickly increasing popularity among the southern region and trap scene has recently landed him a spot at Buku Music & Arts Festival and opening for major headline show artists such as Jauz, San Holo, and NGHTMRE. He has also received honorable mentioned of his trap remixed by Flosstradamus and NGHTMRE, just to name a few.
