PLAY ME RECORDS
You have watched it grow from its humble beginnings deep in the mind of Reid Speed to a world class juggernaut of a record label. With over 60 artists in under 2 years, there's no mistaking that PLAY ME Records has quickly risen to the top of the Dubstep and bass music mountain. 2010 was a banner year for the brand, with 3 #1 hits and an unending string of top 10's that lead to Play Me being voted Dubstep Label Of the Year and Play Me's tunes and artists We Bang & Bare also receiving acclaim by the folks at Beatport. 2011 has seen the rise continue with seven of this year's releases charting in the top #10 and FS hitting #1 with "Yup".
So without further ado, it's time to unleash the power of Play Me upon the world. Play Me Records and Play Me Too bring you the "Bass Monster” Tour and this Halloween is the perfect date for such an event.
The core of the tour features label bass boss / DJ extraordinaire Reid Speed alongside FS, formerly of bass turntablist band Ming & FS, who's first 2 dubstep releases have skyrocketed to the top of the Beatport dubstep chart. Rounding out the lineup is Play Me's boy wonder Cyberoptics, who's Play Me debut "Geisha" hit #1 for over 4 weeks in the summer of 2010. With these 3 on deck, and local Play Me heavy hitters from surrounding cities supporting, this is a Monster of a line up you don’t want to miss.

Reid Speed has been a dancefloor destroyer for over a decade, and is second to none when it comes to heavy bass music rinseouts of all genres. She currently runs Play Me Records and Play Me Too, the United States' leading dubstep, drumstep and bass-of- all- genres labels while holding down a full production and tour schedule. As one of the first US DJs to champion speed garage & 2 step (which have become todays's fidget house and dubstep), her new label's quick rise to the top of the dance charts reflects her continually forward thinking musical evolution.
Reid started out in the New York City underground working behind the counter at the legendary Breakbeat Science store, holding residencies with Stuck on Earth, Direct Drive & Camouflage while in college at the School of Visual Arts. Drum and Bass at the start, she was soon was seduced by the sounds of 2 step and speed garage and began DJing full time, producing tracks and throwing her own events. Signing to Breakbeat Science's label in 2001, she released her first mix "Resonance" to much critical acclaim, and successfully followed it up with 2003's "Life After Dark." On subsequent tours with Om artists Ming & FS and Colette she honed her precise genre mashing mixing skills and developed a synergy with her crowds that is unmatched. With both her and her label's tunes and mixes getting dropped around the world every day, this girl's musical outreach and undeniable popularity will only continue to expand.
FS is an American producer, composer, DJ and musician based out of Brooklyn, New York. He continues his bass music odyssey with a string of chart topping dubstep hits, including Both ‘Yup' & ‘Touch O Klass' hitting #1 on Beatport’s Top 100 Dubstep chart, and ‘Shake Dat Ass’ hitting #4.
True to his signature sound, FS delivers electro-glitch-ridden and intricately woven sound spheres, loaded with distinct, bass-driven production. He gained critical acclaim in the EDM scene with his ground breaking band Ming + FS, releasing the seminal album Hell’s Kitchen on Om Records. Soon after he founded record label and creative agency, Patriarch Recordings, producing indie artists and scoring music for movie trailers, TV and film.

A young producer taking the Dubstep world by storm; at age 19, Alex Epps aka Cyberoptics first made his big smash into the scene with his release "Geisha" on PLAY ME Records. Released in May of 2010, Geisha climbed to number 1 on Beatport.com and held it's place in the top 5 for over a month, battling producers such as Borgore and Doctor P.
Hailing from Memphis TN, Cyberoptics is greatly influenced by the dirty south but also the wide varieties of electronic music as well. With a unique style of different themes, deep sludge bass and a heavy sub, it's almost impossible not to move your body to these alien sounding bass tones!
Cyber's latest 4 track release from Play Me Records: "The Tie Fighter EP" exploded onto the Beatport Top 20 with songs "Pimpin" hitting #3, "Geisha VIP" right behind at #4, and "Tie Fighter" and "Toasty" topping out at numbers 14 and 17.
Currently Cyberoptics is hard at work on a full length album, touring with Play Me heroes Reid Speed & FS, and working closely with other producers such as Liquid Stranger, Quartus Saul, Dayn, Chrispy, Robokop and F3tch.
