Steez Promo Presents
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.
When the two worlds of electronic music DJs/producers Kenny Beats (aka Kenneth Blume) and Ryan Marks collided in 2009, something magical happened.
This dynamic duo is best known as LOUDPVCK. They met at the Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA), started producing tracks together, dropped ‘em on Soundcloud and nearly that moment became an overnight sensation.
Since then, the buzz and hype about LOUDPVCK has only continued to grow. The doors have been swinging wide open; getting added to the Deckstar Management roster, remixing tracks for Nervo, Kill the Noise, and Carnage, receiving serious playtime on BBC Radio One, not to mention getting lots of love and support from the likes of: Skrillex, A-Trak, Dillon Francis, Zeds Dead, Diplo, Danny Brown, 12th Planet, Adventure Club, Flosstradamus, Baauer, UZ, DJ Carnage, AC Slater, DJ CRAZE, Bro Safari, Brillz and Paper Diamond to name a few…
What does LOUDPVCK sound like? Genre-pigeon holes aside, they have thrown down some of the most filthy, tracks out there, causing their popularity to rise in a massively short amount of time.
With shows and festivals booked all over the US matched with several new productions and remixes in the oven… Rest assured, when the beat drops at a LOUDPVCK show, you better have your hands up.
18 months ago only a select few knew who James Rockhill was. Now millions know him as Kove. Shortly after his first release, ‘Breach/Stellar,’ released on Matrix and Futurebounds’ Viper Recordings, RAM Records’ boss Andy C signed ‘Iodine/Open Ground’ to his new imprint Program Recordings. The track was featured on the legendary DJ’s Mixmag mix CD, which led to Kove being invited to play at RAM’s residency at London’s infamous club Fabric.
Only a month after the release of ‘Iodine’ and Kove’s track ‘Searching’ found it’s way into the hands of chart topping producers Chase & Status, who included it in their own Mixmag mix CD. It became Kove’s second track to feature on the magazine in just six short months. A record deal with Chase & Status’ label MTA (also home to Nero), followed. Soon Kove was supporting them at club nights across Europe as the track became one of the biggest releases of the summer, receiving major support from Radio 1 and reaching the #1 spot on Beatport’s D&B chart.
With remixes for Chase & Status’ top 10 hit ‘Lost and Not Found’ and John Newman’s massive no.1 single, ‘Love Me Again,’ now nearing 3 million views on YouTube, Kove has become increasingly in demand as a re-mixer. This summer has also seen his stock rise as a DJ, with a regular slot for Together at Ibiza’s famous Amnesia and playing the main stage for UKF at SW4 in London – not to mention support slots for the likes of Sub Focus.
With so much achieved in such a short space of time, 2014 will undoubtedly propel Kove further into the limelight. Kove’s EP ‘Measures’ is out now
