Redfish Entertainment presents the Smog City Tour featuring 12th Planet, Protohype, Antiserum, SPL, & Steady at Effex Nightclub located at 420 Central Ave in Downtown Albuquerque on Thursday, February 20, 2014. SMOG CITY TOUR 12th Planet and his influential SMOG Records crew are kicking off 2014 by bringing the freshest genre-bending bass music across North America with the 38-date SMOG City Tour this January and February. The SMOG City Tour sees some of bass music’s foremost pioneers team up with the hottest new artists, as Antiserum, DLX, Flinch, HeRobust, Protohype, Son of Kick, SPL, Starkey, Steady and Two Fresh join in to shatter dancefloors from Jacksonville to Seattle, showcasing SMOG as America’s tastemaking bass label — one that continues to push the frontier of new music and pave new paths. As Mixmag recently noted, “[SMOG] has pioneered dubstep and high-power bass music in America and is one of the genre’s key outposts in the country, breaking new artists and throwing mad parties.” 12TH PLANET [SMOG LA] John started over from scratch. After seven years touring the world as drum-n-bass maestro Infiltrata, after winning over icons such as Goldie and Photek, John Dadzie gave himself a new name, a new sound, and a new determination. It was 2005 and the gentile beatmaker was inspired by sounds he heard spun by the likes Technical Itch, Skream and Benga. It was dubstep. And it was his calling. Once 12th Planet is born, the story really begins. The British dubstep movement takes hold in LA thanks to 12th Planet and the events he aligns himself with; Smog, Media Contender, HARD, and his own club night Dubtroit. Like the mythological twelfth planet (popularized by controversial author Zecharia Sitchin), our 12th Planet flies perpendicular to the system. His wicked beats are off axis. His subsonic frequencies surround you in their own orbit. America’s first king of dubstep is ready for impact. http://www.12thplanet2012.com/ http://www.twitter.com/12thplanet http://www.smogla.com/ PROTOHYPE [SMOG, Firepower] Max Hype is Protohype. Originating in the hip hop world, 23 year old Protohype's fusion with bass music has created a new genre, Dub Hop. Combining the gritty low end of dubstep with trunk rattling hip hop drums, a sound is born like nothing else. His progressive sound has lead him to new heights in both the bass music community and the hip hop world. His massive collection of free music floating through the interweb has gained him respect not only from other DJ's, but from fans across the country. Be on the lookout for Protohype, coming to crush a city near you. http://www.facebook.com/protohypemusic http://www.twitter.com/protohype http://www.soundcloud.com/protohype ANTISERUM [SMOG, Firepower] As a vanguard of forward thinking bass music, Antiserum continuously defines the sound of today. His releases on SMOG, Firepower, and Never Say Die Records have established him as a mainstay of sub-heavy music, and the success of his track “Brick Squad Anthem,” with Atlanta-based producer Mayhem, has solidified him as an authority in hip-hop inspired electronic music. www.antiserumsound.com www.twitter.com/antiserum www.soundcloud.com/antiserum SPL [SMOG] From his roots in the drum and bass movement, to the formation of his label Hollowpoint Records in 2009, and now with the emergence of his trademark forward-thinking “Balearic Bass” sound, SMOG Records artist SPL stands poised to continue striking blows into the hearts and minds of electronic dance music veterans and initiates alike. https://soundcloud.com/spl/ https://twitter.com/SPLSamuel STEADY [SMOG] A welcome face to dance floors all over California, Steady is a solid contributor to West Coast dubstep whose productions and performances passionately promote the sound. After playing drum and bass for almost a decade, Steady caught the dubstep contagion and was soon inducted into the SMOG family with the rest of the beat freaks. Along with fellow DJ and producer Kelly Dean, Steady now hosts a radio show “PLATFORM” on DubstepFM every second Saturday of the month from 1-3PM, where he showcases exclusive new material by artists both local and from around the world. ___________________________________________ THE PARTY TROLLEY Reserve your ride on The Party Trolley for worry-free transportation to/from the concert.
