We’ve gathered a collection of who’s-who from the Canadian and US Glitch Hop and Dubstep scenes that each deliver a unique remix as well as adding extra melody and flavor to Subverts anthem track ‘Speaker Humpin’. Four versions were heard on the Village Stage at this years Shambala Music Festival by a few thousand bass addicts and mosh pit revelers.
The mixes take you through multiple aspects of contemporary bass culture and if bass is your thing then there is a version for you.
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 on a sound-system ’ can be felt in all of his music productions, he is an expert in the subsonic, the crowd and the show.
Subvert’s ‘Dirt Nap’ EP rocked the Addictech and Beatport ‘Grime / Dubstep’ charts and lead to him being featured in XLR8R magazine and radio play on multiple urban music shows, his Speaker Humpin EP on Muti Music and Party Alarm EP on Rottun Recordings blurred boundaries between edgy Dubstep, Glitch Hop and Big Beat. Also having released on Punch Drunk and Rottun Recordings, this artists talent has been noted.
Dov1 is known as a genre pusher, from importing-exporting and selling some of the first ‘Nubreaks’, ‘Dubstep’ & ‘Glitch Hop’ to / from USA and throwing San Francisco’s first dedicated ‘breaks’ weekly in the nineties, to selecting and releasing music for multiple labels including his own, namely ‘Muti Music’. Recently producing dubstep remixes for Sub Swara on Low Motion Recordings and experimental / glitch remixes of Posthuman and Welder on Myuzyk and Cyberset Music respectively, Dov1 now emerges from the shadows with an EP of dubstep and midtempo breaks that is a journey of intense emotions.
