We have a beefed up lineup for you including the legendary ANTISERUM and ROOMMATE, along with Supreme, Nebakaneza, Johnny 5, Trevor Kelly and Stax. ——————————————————————————- ANTISERUM (aka Mike Schumer) is an electronic producer and musician from San Francisco, whose originating style of West Coast bass music emerged during the dawn of the Bay Area dubstep movement. His music is characterized by the use of heavy drums, rolling bass lines, and distinct melodies, with a tight production style that gives nods to underground hip-hop, soul, nuerofunk, reggae, and metal. His live DJ performances oscillate between high-octane mixes and emotional progressions, built around new and unreleased material with a focus on high energy and dance floor appeal.Reaching a prominent international audience through Beatport in 2008, Antiserum landed the 8th best-selling dubstep track of the year. His first tour launched in 2009 to Australia and New Zealand, which set forth a whole new fan base and realm of inspiration that brought him back for a second tour two years later. By the start of 2011, he released The Swarm EP with Rottun Recordings, opened for Excision and Downlink on first full-scale dubstep production to hit the US: the 30-show Subsonic Tour. He was picked up by Caspas Dub Police label with his collaborative renditions of the West Coast’s own “purple” sound, featuring the tracks “Zephyr” and “Purple & Gold” with Los Angeles dubstep warrior 12th Planet and the multi-faceted ill-Esha. Antiserums dynamic production style has also sparked collaborations with electronic artists Eskmo, DJG, ill-esha, Noah D, Triage, Mayhem, Dubsworth, Vinja, and Babylon System. Aside from his regular live DJ performances, Antiserum has also guest lectured and performed at Expression College for Digital Arts in the Bay Area.2012 stands as Antiserums biggest year thus far, landing his collaborative track Droid Prom with live musician Dubsworth in the opening scenes of the CSI: Miami episode Friendly Fire, and releasing his co-production with 12th Planet titled Ghost on The End is Near EP by Scion A/V (including tracks by Skrillex, Flinch, SPL, and Kill the Noise). Antiserums most recent 2-track release with ill-Esha features Overflow & Lightning on the Dutch imprint, Subway and his forthcoming releases will be out to make a second impact once again on Dub Police & Rottun. His debut full-length album is currently in the works!

His tireless efforts in both production and DJ’ing have currently brought him to the forefront of the worldwide bass music community. With over a decade of solid DJ’ing and countless original production releases, you can be sure Roommate has secured his title on an international scale. Beginning his musical quest with guitar lessons at the age of 11, Roommate has since developed his craft to an undeniable style and fashion by intergrating both organic and electronic sounds. After self releasing his first solo album (Dubfunk vol1) in 2003, he quickly gained musical notiriety in the U.S. counter culture. When dubstep first hit the U.S. streets, Roommate was quick to find a love and understanding for the music and begin production. Joining forces with L.A. based artist and long time friend No Thing, the two formed another key part of dubstep history; Babylon System. Roommate / Babylon System contributed many of the early U.S. dubstep releases such as “50 Blocks Away”,” Examination of TIme”, and “Loaded” to name a few. After a slew of quality releases, Roommate was sky rocketed into the international limelight. Years of global touring followed with undying passion and intensity at every show.Co founding the rip roaring label Hollow Point Recordings with friend and artist SPL was another huge step for Roommate. Gaining confindence from consistant releases and great sales, Roommate used Hollow Point to push the boundaries of sound and express his musical tastes. Following Hollow Point, Roommate branched out to creat two new musical imprints. King Dubbist and Avocaudio are Roommate’s latest forward thinking incarnations. Focusing on huge vibes and stellar production, these labels span from Dubstep to Trip-hop to Reggae. Fusing and encompassing Roommate’s broad and compelling love for musical freshness. Currently, Roommate is still touring avidly all over the world and spreading his custom art everywhere he goes. He is focusing on releasing two full length Dubstep/Reggae and Trip hop albums in the near future. His labels and projects will continue to grow and influence the music and art communities for years to come. Roommate’s live show never dissappoints and always reflects his energy and skill.
