If you like dirty bass, you best get to know Subvert. Anyone who was at Motion Notion had a chance to see this PK frontman tear the Fort apart with his own brand of Heavy Dubstep and Glitch, built to give the subs a workout. He's got 2 sets at Shambhala this year, on the beach, and in the Village... don't sleep on this shit! Peep his latest mix, and an exclusive tune for Oh Snap! readers at the bottom of this post.
Here's his Bio, from MutiMusic:
What started out as an introduction and a remix project turned us ‘on’ to one of Canada’s rising stars of bass driven crunky beats in the form of “Subvert’. His tracks have been doing promo rounds and have made regular appearances in the sets of Bassnectar, Ill Gates (The Phat Conductor) & Dov amongst others.
Subvert hails from Calgary, Alberta and his winding path in music started in 1996. Proof of his dedication to ‘Bass’ is in his track record of creating the world’s loudest competition vehicles, designing pK’s 90,000 watt sound system and managing the Village Stage at Shambhala Music Festival. He started DJing in 2000 and combined with his extensive work on sound systems and attention to precision sound, he was ultimately & naturally led down the path to creating his own music productions and once again the low frequencies consumed him. Subvert’s sound is a combination of throbbing, relentless basslines, melodic strings and haunting pianos singing through midtempo glitch / acid crunk and dubstep. His attention to detail and the ability to tune into ‘bass that works’ can be felt in all of his music productions, he is an expert in the subsonic, the crowd and the show.
The past year has truly seen the emergence of Subvert as a recording artist, with a slew of new releases in the first half of 2008:
‘Subversion’ and ‘No Smokey Ganja’ on Rottun Recordings,
‘Bigtsteppa’ on Punch Out
and a recent remix of the Ill Gates smasher ‘Sweat Shop’ upcoming on Muti Music.
We are stoked to announce the forthcoming ‘Dirt Nap’ EP in addition to the ‘Sweat Shop’ remix coming out on Muti Music, the EP will include the tracks; ‘Size Matters’, ‘Curb Stomper’, ‘Dirt Nap’ and ‘Pump et Up’.
It’s all about the bass…..
