Only in the dubstep scene a short time, Detroit native Butch Clancy wasted no time creating a style all his own, with pounding bass and heavy intricate drums he pulls from all the different types of music that he has made over the past 11 years producing. Keeping it dance floor friendly but also staying with the dark side of dubstep that he loves, he has found a medium that makes his style fresh and new but is still recognizable to dubstep fans.
Chart topping, dance floor rocking, and taste making come naturally to Atlanta based DJ and Producer Mayhem. With over 15 years in the studio and the decks, he has garnished the attention of the heavyweights in every genre of his focus. Rooted heavily in Drum & Bass music, and with a discerning ear, Mayhem found himself making big moves from an early age. From releasing records for Andy C, TeeBee, Dieselboy, Noisia, and Black Sun Empire to DJing across the world for massive crowds in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and beyond; he has warranted a reputation for diversity and quality control. Collaborating with artists such as Noisia, Heroes x Villains, FKi, Le Castle Vania, Antiserum, Phace, Evol Intent, Sinthetix, Gein and Gridlok amongst many others, his production soared to new heights with "Exodus (featuring the legendary KRS-1)", "Moonway Renegade", "Choke", and most recently a crossover album for Diplo's Mad Decent Label "Transformers In The Hood". Boundless inspiration pushed Mayhem to pursue Dubstep in it's formidable years, immediately signing with the reputable Subway Records as well as SubHuman and Smog most recently. As of late his focus has been brought back to home on the forefront a movement combining Trap music with Dubstep, in addition to maintaining a healthy output of Drum & Bass, while working with Rap artists such as Tyga, Gucci Mane, Travis Porter, and Trouble. His club nights Transit, Fuck Yesss, Heavy, Haute Mess, Tambor Y Bajo, Service as well as regular events under Atlanta Dubstep have helped reshape Atlanta's nightlife. No matter the genre, you are guaranteed a diverse set with attention to detail and a healthy respect for dynamics and balance. This is Mayhem.
The unsung hero of underground bass culture, Getter has been taking over stages across the US since 2010, beginning at the ripe young age of 17. Before he could even buy his own pack of cigarettes, Getter was performing across the US and receiving support from genre pioneers DATSIK and Downlink.
Fast forward to 2013, Getter has become known for ignoring trends and cutting his own path with ripping, guttural synths and a sprinkling of melody. 2013 has also seen Getter release his Beatport-chart-topping debut album "I Want More" on DATSIK's Firepower label--including a collaboration with the star himself. With his tunes being rinsed by the likes of Flux Pavilion, Rusko, DATSIK and Borgore (to name only a few) the future is looking very bright for this young blood. Catch Getter inciting riots at a small club, a massive festival or a broken down warehouse in a city near you!
Taking the dubstep scene by storm with his staggering studio output and electrifying live performances, there is no question BARE has clawed his way into the ranks of the bass music elite. The BARE sound is a product of deep roots in rock, west coast hip-hop (as part of the Vital Mindz collective) and aggressive drum 'n' bass (as past alias Reborn). These influences, combined with ultra crisp drum programming, slick melodies and mind altering bass modulation, spawn face melting dubstep anthems that practically rewind themselves. BARE's dedication to bass music was rewarded with the title of "Best New Dubstep Artist of 2010" by Beatport. Knowledge Magazine described BARE as "revolutionizing the sound of dubstep with his elegant and melodic structures, that will surely fool you once his dirty down-south-like grimey basslines get your body moving with sheer excitement." Across the pond, the BARE sound caught the attention of Virus Syndicate DJ/producer MRK1 – as a result, three BARE tracks (including the dancefloor annihilating "Like a G6" rework) were chosen to represent the VS crew in the BBC Radio One Dubstep Soundclash (leading the VS crew to declare themselves victorious).
