With a reputation that grows stronger as every beat drops from his fingers, Stephan Jacobs is one of the most exciting multi-genre producers in southern California today. Drawing from a powerful collection of original material and heavyweight remixes, this passionate young producer slings out stimulating sets of uptempo dubstep, twisted glitch hop and straight-up West Coast crunk. Stephan Jacobs has a knack for inciting crowds with his eclectic music, whether he is performing at major music festivals like Coachella, dark underground events in LA or the hottest club in Hollywood. With over five years of experience making music and ten years playing out from Vancouver to Tel Aviv, Jacobs has honed his skills and style and now stands poised to bring new waves of brain-smashing beats to the hungry masses. A prolific producer who cannot stop creating, Jacobs is also half of Kether, the highly regarded live electronics duo with a firmly established spot at the forefront of West Coast sound. Stepping out on his own and further down the path of dance floor-pleasing crunk, he continues to tear down the house and rock audiences to their knees. Jacobs never lets an opportunity to share his sound slip by, and has earned a name in underground circles as one of the most talented bass music producers today. His innovative sets sneak up on crowds and shove them into dance euphoria with their provocative basslines, juicy melodies and mesmerizing female vocals. Devoted to music and to killing the crowd, Stephan Jacobs is an instigator who is on his way up.
Since beginning his extensive live career in late 2009, Boris Gladkill has established himself as a definitive presence in the bass music community. Best known for infusing the West Coast future bass sound with a sexy, melodic feel and unique composition and song arrangement, Gladkill is at the forefront of the evolution of dubstep, bass and electronic music as a whole. Gladkill has performed at s…ome of the most prominent music festivals of 2011 including Coachella and Lightning In A Bottle, and will be further delighting crowds this Summer at the upcoming Bounce Festival, Emrg+N+See, Burning Man, Earthdance and more. His June 13th EP release on renowned label Made in Glitch entitled Lovelost will mark yet another milestone in what promises to be a long and prosperous musical journey.
Giant Robot laser battles; tender mechanized love-making; the blinking blips and bleeps of artificial intelligence communications: these are the computerized moods that will wash over you in the most caculated of ways. +verb (prnounced “Adverb” by humans) is a new blog favorite in the genre of bass. Recently featured on Soundcloud’s “What’s Hot” list for a collaboration with Stephen Jacobs, the world is anxiously preparing for an invasion of his robotic army. And with recent EPs on Car Crash Set, Multi and Vermin Street, a stellar remix of Starkey on Civil Music, and forthcoming EPs on Simplify and Robox Neotech, it may just be time to start listening to the demands of our new robot overlords.
Hypha /?h?f?/ : a thread that branches from germinated spores into a complicated, radically expanding network of fine tubes which form the structural parts of the body of a fungus, collectively known as the mycelium. Aptly named Producer / instrumentalist Hypha has branched off from the norm to develop one of the most unique sounds fueling the west coast bass revolution. Hypha has been carefully crafting his skills and contributing to the evolution of modern sound with his specialized blend of synthesized, rhythmic bass poetry since 2008. With his exceptional attention to detail and his ability to make each note count, he’s heralding a new artistic avant-garde. His arsenal of unofficially released compositions displays the full spectrum, and the consistent depth of his material inviting universal appreciation. He uncompromisingly delivers danceability, while offering a wealth of dimension to cerebrally swim in. Each track offers an exemplification of his greatest asset – his limitless range. A refusal to conform or succumb to boundaries allows him to build from his inspirations and offer a unique fusing of the past with the future elevating his audio art to the highest levels. Representing Humboldt County, California, Hypha has toured the Pacific Northwest and opened up for artists such as NastyNasty, Machinedrum, Freddy Todd, Babylon System, Cyberoptics, NiT GriT, Dub Gabriel, Siren, and others.
