The name itself presents a terrifying image- a mangled, forced extraction, quite literally "removal by cutting". It should come as no surprise that the sounds behind this name are just as filthy, brutal, and unforgiving as the namesake suggests.
Excision shows are like no other- a virtual apocalypse of twisting and morphing sounds turn massive crowds into a frenzy, as virtual walls of bass are relentlessly impaled time and time again upon their fragile bodies and ears. Your ears will ring and your eyes will roll into the back of your head as you are suspended in what can only be called a true sensory overload. Bass will rain down from above for hours as Excision's skills as a DJ and producer shine like an unholy light from the underworld.
The true champion of bass music, Excision hails from Kelowna, British Columbia. The founder of the ROTTUN label, a bass music conglomerate that has shaped the sound of modern Bass music, Excision has created a vast roster of allies that has only bolstered his spot as a warrior of bass music. Armed with a library of destruction and filth, Excision has time and time again tested the limits of electronic music with vastly different sets that encompass a full range of genres. The things you see and hear during the precious time you are engaged by Excision's sounds will eclipse your mind for a lifetime, as you are constantly enlightened by the true fervor and energy that only an Excision set can provide.
In an ever-evolving universe, the art of maintaining complete and total fluidity is the most
necessary key for survival. Renowned for his metamorphic capabilities and expertly crafted
sonic adventures, Liquid Stranger has mastered his ability to slip in and out of genres all while
honing his own personal style.
Luzcid's music is a sonic odyssey. A series of auditory adventures in which the participants completely escape time and space. He meticulously eludes genres in order to welcome a variety of enthusiasts to gather and celebrate the rewards of community. Luzcid hopes music can become platform in which the peoples of the world can reconnect and begin to restore our home to a place in which we all enjoy living.
The Florida based bass music producer Midnight Tyrannosaurus has been making quite a quake in the underground dubstep community. Quickly gaining recognition and DJ support from big names like Excision, Figure, and Cookie Monsta. With multiple top charting Beatport releases on Chronos Records, I. Am. Audio, Prime Audio, and Anemnesis; Midnight Tyrannosaurus is well on his way to making his own unique staple in the industry. Raw literal dinosaur sounding synths, and heart thumping sub bass make a Setasaurus one you'll never truly forget!
Max Hype is Protohype. Originating in the hip hop world, 23 year old Protohype's fusion with bass music has created a new genre, Dub Hop. Combining the gritty low end of dubstep with trunk rattling hip hop drums, a sound is born like nothing else. His progressive sound has lead him to new heights in both the bass music community and the hip hop
world. His massive collection of free music floating through the interweb has gained him respect not only from other DJ's, but from fans across the country. Be on the lookout for Protohype, coming to crush a city near you.
Bright glowing lights shine through dark and hazy atmospheres in the futuristic world of Dion Timmer, an artist whose roots in the Netherlands' rave scene have helped define his uniquely colorful approach to modern bass music.
After discovering dubstep at the early age of 10, Dion became inspired to develop his own production style, featuring blissed-out chord progressions, pitched-up vocals, and faster tempos alongside aggressive and highly technical sound design.
Music Producer / DJ from England
Las Vegas born and raised producer Shaun Bacus better know as HEKLER, came out of nowhere with his intense eerie take on bass music in early 017. Gaining support from some of the biggest names in the industry including: The Chainsmokers, What So Not, EKALI, NGHTMRE, Whipped Cream, Josh Pan, Adventure Club, and many more. Shaun has been able to progress at an alarming rate taking the industry by surprise. When listening to his tunes, you are left with a puzzled look on your face, wonder...HOW? HEKLER is no stranger to being unique and creating something that you've definitely never heard before. Shaun had started his musical journey at the early age of 13 years old. He was no stranger to music. He grew up listening to a diverse selection of music, playing the trombone, drums and piano. Early 2010 is when he was first introduced to electronic music via UKF. Listening to legends including Noisia, Flux Pavilion, Nero, Skrillex, DJ Fresh and many more, he grew a love for something that wasn't necessarily considered "cool" to listen to at the time. From that point on, he started messing around in FL Studio trying to replicate the tunes he loved so much. Unfortunately, they were a tad bit too complex so Shaun took the hip hop route and began producing beats, learning the ropes of music production. Early 2015, he finally took the leap of faith into the "electronic" elements of producing, learning sound design which crafted his style into what you now hear in his tunes. Finally releasing music in early 2017, HEKLER has created a sound that is truly his. He has shown no signs of stopping and only continues to keep things fresh and unique with every single release.
