Bass fiend Nick Suddarth has been playing electronic bass music for well over a decade, but it’s been in only the past few years that his production skills have shot him to the top of the US dubstep scene as the producer known as Sluggo. In only a short time, Sluggo’s carved out a unique place in the dubstep world as his signature dark and twisted sound incorporating elements from drum & bass, hip hop, hardcore, and metal have this producer murdering dancefloors across the world.
Formerly part of the duo Ultrablack, Sluggo stepped out on his own over the last year as a producer, remixer, and label boss. With releases on the genre’s most influential labels including Rottun, Play Me, Basshead, Subhuman, and Ultragore Recordings, he receives massive support from heavy hitters Downlink, Desielboy, 12th planet, Bassnectar, Ajapai and Reid Speed just to name a few. Sluggo also has been collaborating with a who’s who of the genre’s finest, and has moved firmly from one-to-watch status to outright player in the pantheon of dubstep.
It was only a matter of time until Sluggo teamed up with long time associate Lank to create Ultragore Recordings the world’s #1 home of tear-out dubstep. Having garnered the 2010 Best New Label Award from Syphonic Distribution, Ultragore has become a fan favorite as the home of heavy bass and most murderous breaks in the dubstep world. In 2011 be on the look out for a full on assault from Ultragore with releases in the hopper from some of the biggest names in bass including Hulk, Liquid Stranger, and Mark Instinct as well as hot underground acts Torqux, Helicopter Showdown, and many more!
With a slew of releases on seminal labels such as Play Me, Subhuman and Ultragore in the hopper, collaborations with Brosafari of Evol Intent, Liquid Stranger, and remixes ranging from screamo band I Wrestled A Bear Once to Drum and bass bad boys BLOKHEAD, Sluggo’s set to set 2011 on fire with his brutal brand of hardcore tear-out dubstep.
