Based out of Boise, Idaho, Kai Wachi, the 23-year-old dubstep and trap producer has been dropping bangers on us since his first release back in June 2012. He’s mashed genres and crossed boundaries, all while receiving support from some big-name artists like Excision and Bassnectar. 2016 was especially successful for Kai Washi, with the release of his popular single, “Ri$e,” and his four-track EP, $kull Team, followed up with “DEMONS” – all immediate fan favorites. For fans of BTSM or Snails, Kai Wachi’s grimy bass sound is right up your alley.
Joining Kai Wachi will be Krimer. Hailing Montreal, Canada, Krimer AKA Simon Bertrand is a producer who quickly proved himself to be a force of nature. Krimer is known for pushing the boundaries of dubstep by taking multiple facets of other genres and boldly bringing them together into his own unique style.
