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.
The infamous pioneers of black metal!
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!
Representing Los Angeles, California, BARE aka Sean Rodela has become one of the most talked about new producers making waves on the worldwide dubstep circuit. The BARE sound is a product of deep roots in west coast hip-hop (as part of the Vital Mindz collective) and aggressive drum 'n' bass (as Reborn) – these influences, combined with crisp drum programming and mind altering basslines, spawn face melting dubstep anthems that almost rewind themselves. February saw BARE's first vinyl release, the ragga-influenced dancefloor smasher 'Culture', on Terminal Dusk Recordings. Alongside the massive 'Talk Too Loud' on the flip, the release was charted by DJ's over the world (via Chemical Records), and put BARE on the radar alongside other members of the already incendiary LA dub community. In April THE GROUPIE LOVE LIFE EP was released on Reid Speed's Play Me Records, and the A-side 'Life' instantly secured a coveted spot in the Beatport dubstep top 10 – an amazing accomplishment for a fresh producer. In the weeks to follow, 'Life' peaked at number four on the charts, and would continue to dominate the top ten for close to a month – the B-side 'Groupie Love' was never far behind. The wheels were in motion, and around the same time BARE's tracks caught the attention of drum and bass legend Dieselboy, resulting in a massive all A-side LP being secured for the third release on SubHuman Recordings (Human's new dubstep offshoot) later this year. More original tracks and remixes are currently confirmed for Hollow Point Rec, Buygore, Licked Beats (UK), Trillbass, Play Me, TLD and Ultragore Recordings. BARE lives and breathes music, his studio output is staggering to even the most seasoned producers. His tunes make regular appearances in the sets of Dieselboy, Excision, Datsik, Trillbass, Downlink, Mark Instinct, and Reid Speed. Studio collaborations with Symbl, NumberNin6, 6Blocc, J Messinian, and Mark Instinct are already in the works, with many more planned for the future as time allows.
