Known as the U.S. harbinger of bass music, and the chancellor of west coast-style dubstep, 12th Planet is a maniacal powerhouse behind the decks. Filtering UK bass though the dark smog of Los Angeles skies, 12th Planet crafts epic subwoofer ballads that have left smoldering ground-zeros of the some of the world’s largest EDM festivals. Having already been a jungle and D&B mainstay under the umbrella of Infiltrata, 12th has since graduated to extraterrestrial bangers and hard beats that give you an idea of what it sounds like when planets collide.
Craze is the dynamically interesting place where turntable wizardry and eclectic crowd-rocking sets cohesively meet boiling point. With three World DMC Championships notched on his belt and decorated with around a dozen more DJ battle champ badges, Craze has definitely solidified his place in turntablism history. Bear witness to the explosive place where Miami Bass dilutes into Hip-Hop cuts, and where drum n bass effortlessly beat-juggles into dubstep.
