Another DUB NATION show is hitting Tempe this April! Relentless Beats and 1 Vibe Events presents DUB NATION PHX featuring Sluggo, Ryle, Messinian, The Juggernaut, and Adroa at Club Red, minutes from ASU, on Saturday, April 28, 2012.
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.
This charismatic one-man sonic assault on your senses, draws on a steadfast determination to dance to his own beat, while creating an undeniably unique hybrid of musical styles. Not only blurring the lines between genres, but in fact smashing the walls that separate our assumptions and preconceived notions about modern day electronic dance music.
From the chaos of complextro, to headbanging metal influenced dustup, Ryle has taken the idea of multi-genre bass music and thrown all the rules out the window. Armed with a customized Ableton Live set up, his live performance is non-stop thrill-ride of big room bangers, original mashups and re-edits, plus unreleased original material that you wont hear anywhere else.
Messinian has been setting dancefloors on fire and touring non-stop as a Dubstep DJ/MC. You can see him nationwide at festivals and clubs spinning high energy Dubstep originals & VIP’s… simultaneously mixing records and hyping it up on the mic to get crowds screaming with their hands in the air. Messinian took the Dubstep world by storm with a streak of hard hitting vocal collaborations with Dubstep heavyweights like Excision, Datsik, Bare, SPL, Number Ni6e, Triage, J. Rabbit, Camo & Krooked, Antiserum, Downlink, Skism, Sluggo, Mark Instinct, Itchy Robot and many more. Messinian’s tracks are getting heavy DJ support from not only North American Dubstep DJ’s, but major Dubstep DJ’s the world over. Messinian is no stranger to the Top 20 Dubstep Charts on Beatport. His collaborations “All About My Paper”, “Heavy Artillery”, “Apeshit”, “Girls, Girls”, and “Burn It Up” have all held spots in the Top 20 or Top 10 in the last several months and he has plenty of Dubstep/Drumstep/DNB anthems with releases scheduled soon. He has been pumping out quality bangers and getting them released on Beatport chart dominating labels such as Rottun Recordings, EX7 Records, Play Me Records, Subhuman, and Hollow Point Recordings. Make sure to look out for Messinian’s solo production and beat making collaborations with artists like Bare, The Upbeats, SPL, and Zardonic in the near future.
The Juggernaut is a name quickly on the rise in today’s dubstep scene. From their inception in 2008, this Orange County duo has already released tracks on labels such as Play Me records, Chronos, Badman Press, and have garnished the attention of some of the scenes top artists such as Skrillex, Modestep, and 12th Planet.
Having completed successful remixes for Korn, Hollywood Undead, Skrillex and more, The Juggernaut are continuing to develop a sound of their own. In 2011, the duo made their way to various festival appearances including Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival, SXSW, and Starscape Festival. 2012 has many new projects in store for this duo, including several singles and EP’s on various record labels. As they continue on their path of destruction, a name everyone will soon know is THE JUGGERNAUT.
Adroa started DJing in 2007, producing in 2008 and quickly fell in love with the sound of dnb and dubstep. After spending many hours in the studio pushing his skills further in audio engineering and sound design, he signed Decimation, his debut EP to the record label widely known for its cutting edge and mind-melting dubstep: Rottun Recordings. Decimation quickly stormed the charts, reaching #3 on the dnb and #6 on the dubstep top 100 Beatport charts. It became a must-have for some of the biggest names in dubstep and dnb gaining DJ support from the likes of Excision, Datsik, Downlink, Evol Intent and Mat The Alien.
