Supporting Acts: Stratus NiT GriT
San Jose based Dubstep and Glitch producer Danny Beall, also known as NiT GRiT, is a quickly rising star in the booming West Coast bass music scene. With several of his tracks breaking Soundcloud.com's top ten most played tunes, NiT GRiT is rapidly staking his claim. Hollow Point and Rottun Recordings' Triage says, "His use of synthetic melodies and bit crushed rhythms definitely caught our attention." Dark and twisted melodies mark his signature sound - best seen through his heavily popular remix of Stellamara's "Prituri Se Planinata", which is getting frequent playtime by dubstep's heaviest players. Antiserum
Antiserum (aka Mike Schumer) is an electronic producer and musician from San Francisco, whose originating style of West Coast bass music emerged during the dawn of the Bay Area dubstep movement. His music is characterized by the use of heavy drums, rolling bass lines, and distinct melodies, with a tight production style that gives nods to underground hip-hop, soul, nuerofunk, reggae, and metal. His live DJ performances oscillate between high-octane mixes and emotional progressions, built around new and unreleased material with a focus on high energy and dance floor appeal. Reaching a prominent international audience through Beatport in 2008, Antiserum landed the 8th best-selling dubstep track of the year. His first tour launched in 2009 to Australia and New Zealand, which set forth a whole new fan base and realm of inspiration that brought him back for a second tour two years later. By the start of 2011, he released The Swarm EP with Rottun Recordings, opened for Excision and Downlink on first full-scale dubstep production to hit the US: the 30-show Subsonic Tour. He was picked up by Caspa's Dub Police label with his collaborative renditions of the West Coast's own "purple" sound, featuring the tracks "Zephyr" and "Purple & Gold" with Los Angeles dubstep warrior 12th Planet and the multi-faceted ill-Esha. Antiserum's dynamic production style has also sparked collaborations with electronic artists Eskmo, DJG, ill-esha, Noah D, Triage, Mayhem, Dubsworth, Vinja, and Babylon System. Aside from his regular live DJ performances, Antiserum has also guest lectured and performed at Ex'pression College for Digital Arts in the Bay Area. 2012 stands as Antiserum's biggest year thus far, landing his collaborative track "Droid Prom" with live musician Dubsworth in the opening scenes of the CSI: Miami episode "Friendly Fire", and releasing his co-production with 12th Planet titled "Ghost" on The End is Near EP by Scion A/V (including tracks by Skrillex, Flinch, SPL, and Kill the Noise). Antiserum's most recent 2-track release with ill-Esha features "Overflow" & "Lightning" on the Dutch imprint, Subway and his forthcoming releases will be out to make a second impact once again on Dub Police & Rottun. His debut full-length album is currently in the works!
