Last year was a big year for Subvert releasing on Muti Music, Punch Drunk and Rottun Recordings. His ‘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.
This year appears to be an even hotter one for Subvert with a US & Canada tour and major festival bookings and this all new 4 track EP that will rattle a building off it’s foundations if given half the chance.
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.
