STEADY3

Posted In ARTISTS,DJ'S

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 two have also just released “The Prophet” on Shift Recordings and you can find Steady’s work on Alterkation Records as well as on the recent and wildly popular “Dubstep LA” mix by Plastician. Looking forward to future collaborations with fellow SMOG members and other local dubstep heads, Steady continues to propel the sound forward in the studio and at filthy parties all up and down the West Coast.

Pablo Hassan brings the party. Rinsing out the dubs and destroying dance floors all over Southern California, this hometown hero is a dear friend to the local electronic music community. Half of duo The Professionals along with Sam XL, Pablo is a resident of both Pure Filth and SMOG and as such resides on the slicing edge of the LA dubstep scene. Find the darkest, dirtiest underground warehouse with the deepest bass booming out of the rafters and shaking the very sky, and there you will find Pablo Hassan, shooting fire from his

fingers and raining down delicious dubstep on his delirious victims who wait with open minds- the parts that haven’t already melted out of their ears, anyway.

UNIT0

Posted In ARTISTS,DJ'S

A beat junkie who has been around since the birth of SMOG, Unit is a prolific producer and powerhouse of a DJ who rocks any crowd with his sick skills and smart selection. Pushing the dubstep sound in LA since 2005, Unit is known as the “Vice President” of SMOG and is a core member of the crew, devoting his time not only to spinning at shows but to promotions and podcasting as well. An experienced and popular DJ with quite a few house, hip hop and drum and bass parties under his belt, Unit is now officially addicted to dubstep.

He was a key factor in launching Los Angeles’ love of the genre, handing out unmarked CDs at electronic music shows and helping to throw the first all-dubstep event in the city, the original SMOG session. Unit’s stomping style can be found on mixes out with MC XYZ under the name “The Elephants” as well as on past and upcoming releases on the SMOG label. Whether grinding in the studio or behind the decks, Unit continues to shove the sound forward onto new platforms in order to reach a wider audience and create an ever-growing pool of dubstep fiends.

Knife Dreams aka Knyphy came to Los Angeles from North Carolina’s “Runnin’ Deep” dubstep crew and has been an early and often contributor to SMOG and the community around it. With a wide variety of influences from UK garage and new wave to metal and post-punk, this producer’s eclectic sound is a fat match for the wide diversity of the LA community. You can often catch Knyphy on SMOG Radio on SubFM every fourth Sunday of the month from 3-5PM, or find the stabbing sounds of this dubstep head hyphing up SMOG parties and underground events all over Southern California.
