About 12th Planet

For more than a decade, Los Angeles producer/DJ 12th Planet, born John Dadzie, has remained one of the foremost pioneers in the global electronic music scene. Recognized as the “Los Angeles dubstep god” by Rolling Stone and dubbed the “US dubstep godfather” by Mixmag, 12th Planet helped introduce dubstep music and culture across North America, first popularizing the genre throughout the US in the early aughts via his headbanging original music and his pivotal SMOG label and event brand. After nearly 15 years as a trailblazer, 12th Planet today continues his mission as an international festival-headlining performer, tastemaker label head and essential force in the ongoing evolution of electronic music. Throughout his career, he’s released countless original tracks and remixes that helped ignite and define the North American EDM explosion. He’s collaborated with fellow bass stars like Zomboy, Getter, Virtual Riot, and Plastician and has remixed everyone from Excision and Rusko to Pretty Lights and Mija, in addition to official releases with leading labels like Interscope, Mad Decent, Monstercat and OWSLA.

About Rusko

The Leeds-born DJ/producer who ascended with the original U.K. dubstep movement — and gave it one of its first and most enduring anthems, a bolt of foul-mouthed rave lightening called “Cockney Thug” — is here to tell you that music is not about labels and dance is no fad. And to prove it, he proudly presents “SONGS”: His gutsy, freewheeling, brilliant second album. “The sound of my early releases was very dub-influenced, and just good, fun, bouncy vibes,” he says. “The majority of dubstep at the moment I think is aggressive, and I don’t like angry music; I don’t want to be angry in a club. So I wanted to make something really happy, but still heavy.” “Happy and heavy” is a proper way to describe the vibe that has carried Rusko from the first moments of dubstep’s life to the biggest stages in the world; from a single, seminal bass wobble to a swath of sounds that can’t be capped in a few simple syllables. He might be one of the guys who started it all — but he’s sure as hell not going to leave it at that. A staple of the global electronic underground, Rusko has packed nightclubs, concert venues and festivals across the world, and not only dance-dedicated ones: From Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Music Festival, to Coachella and Lollapalooza; from Germany’s Melt! to Australia’s Good Vibrations.
