12TH PLANET

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 tastemaker in the dance music world.

12th Planet burst onto the scene in 2006, releasing tracks that helped ignite the North American EDM explosion and collaborating with the likes of Skrillex, Kill The Noise, Datsik and Plastician. In 2012, 12th Planet’s seminal track ‘Reasons’ (Doctor P Remix) was named by SPIN Magazine as one of the ‘30 Greatest Dubstep Songs of All Time’ — after all, ‘nothing set the tone for domestic bass culture quite like this Planet’s orbit,’ said SPIN. 12th Planet has gone on to be recognized as ‘King of Dubstep’ by SPIN and ‘US dubstep godfather’ by UK’s dance music bible Mixmag after headlining tours across the globe and performing at major festivals including Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and more.

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.’

BLEEP BLOOP

Bleep Bloop’s musical world is one of stripped back, bass-heavy beats paired with stark,surreal soundscapes. Aggressive and off the wall sounds weave in and out of heavy drums as he blends genre’s into a low frequency style that works as well at a festival as it does in your headphones.

Bleep Bloop has earned the support of distinguished artists such as DJ Shadow, 12th Planet, DJ Craze, _Z, Kode9, Boyz Noize, Minnesota, Herobust, and G Jones, to name just a few. He has performed at sold out shows in flagship venues across the country alongside DJ Shadow,Cashmere Cat as well as Low End Theory (LA). His music has been broadcast on BBC Radio1, MistaJam, Diplo and Friends, Rinse FM, and on every continent except for antarctica (maybe).

“Angular, brutal and barbed with a bass tongue that tickles with both a west coast and UK twang, it’s the sound Bleep Bloop has been cooking since he was first baptized by bass” -Dave Jenkins, UKF

Bass dipped in liquid question marks and rolled in lazers.

PHASEONE

With numerous consecutive Beatport number 1s, millions of Soundcloud & YouTube plays, collaborations & remixes for Excision, Virtual Riot, Megalodon, Northlane, In Hearts Wake plus many more under his belt, few can deny that PhaseOne is one of the most consistent and significant talents to emerge from the Australian Music scene in the last few years, with his distinct sound combining a unique blend of hard hitting Electronic Bass Music with a Hardcore/Metal fusion.

PhaseOne got his start with Datsik’s label ‘Firepower Records’, notable releases include two chart topping original EP’s; ‘Touching The Stars’ and ‘Matter Of Time’, also hit singles ‘UFO’ and sequel track ‘Area 51’ both held down the #1 spot on Beatport for weeks on end.
