Bass music is not something to be taken lightly, so if you’re considering stopping by a b2b set from two of the heaviest in the bass game, let’s make sure you have all your facts first. Read on for a breakdown on why SQUNTO b2b Subtronics is a must-see set at this year’s Phoenix Lights.
Raised in Holliston, Massachusetts, Eric Roth learned to play the trumpet in fourth grade, followed by the bass guitar, piano, and drums, before moving to electronic production under the moniker SQUNTO. He gained a following with features on blogs and music channels like The Dub Rebellion, and it wasn’t long before he was playing festivals like EDC Las Vegas and performing with some of the biggest names in bass music.
Just a couple states over in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Jesse Kardon, more commonly known as Subtronics, was focusing his efforts on building a SoundCloud following, a fanbase that would ultimately become hooked with the producer’s signature bouncy, yet mechanical sound design. Since his SoundCloud beginnings, the artist has garnered attention from major labels thanks to collaborations with the likes of Ubur, Space Jesus, and Boogie T, to name a few.
Subtronics and SQUNTO have collaborated together on original releases, such as last year’s “Thunderdome.” They have also performed b2b sets together before at festivals like Okeechobee and Wobbleland.
Both regulars on the Never Say Die Black Label, SQUNTO and Subtronics are no strangers to riddim and dubstep, and each artist is known for delivering some neck-breaking sets. That being said, you know a b2b show from these two is a must-see if you’re a fan of bass music.
You can catch this epic b2b set in just a few short weeks at the fifth annual Phoenix Lights, taking place April 5 and 6 at the Park at Wild Horse Pass. Click here to see the full festival lineup and purchase tickets.
