***FRIDAY JUNE 9th***
**Yo! Adrian! Presents*
Dub Roots shows focus primarily on UK influenced dubstep that originated in the late 90s and early 2000s. Each artist is hand selected each show to suit the style of the evening but expect high-quality productions and extra sound at each event as we like to focus on low frequencies.
We welcome back The Widdler with special guest DMVU for this star-studded edition of Dub Roots including REZ, smith. and Hendrix!

**DMVU** (Denver, CO) – Dubstep / Bass Music / Trap
Circus Records / Deep Dark & Dangerous / Encrypted Audio
Methodically flooding the airwaves with sonically justified precision,
the man behind the moniker DMVU stands at the decks of an unstoppable persona defined by unmistakable ingenuity. Calling Denver, Colorado home, his innovation laden sounds claim a constant state of bewilderment, leaving no question to his intrinsic skill as he deepens his groove as a major player in an international circuit. With tracks circulating across seas and finding their way into the playlists of names like Noisia and Boombox Cartel, he continues to receive praise from some of the top names in bass music. Recently releasing a full Hip Hop EP with Ill Chill, the producer’s reaches seem to have no limits, nurturing a rapidly growing fan base with tastes just as large as his productions. Seeing collaborations with the likes of Emancipator and playing well matched alongside leading figures Hudson Mohawke and Truth, his involvement
with respected labels Encrypted Audio and Deep Dark and Dangerous fuel an uncontainable flame. Proliferating an impressive lineage of releases, his most recent addition, the ‘BLOCCD’ EP on Deep Dark and Dangerous stands as a true testament to a diversely adept artist’s deserved place as a gate-pushing contender within today’s expansive music scene. Prepared or not, the best from DMVU is coming for us when we least expect it.
**REZ** (St Louis, MO) – Dubstep
Uprise Audio / Dub Sector / Prime Audio
Rez is a name in the underground dubstep game that is picking up some tremendous steam lately. With a reputable background as a drummer and almost 4,000 followers on his Soundcloud page, Rez has rightfully begun garnering attention for his infectiously dark, technically knowledgeable and refreshingly original dubstep style. As more deep heads become aware of his potential to become a bright innovator, Rez only continues to improve upon his already highly evident musical talents. With his latest release with Kloudmen on Uprise Audio, Uncharted EP on Octane and self-released Signals EP, Rez is gaining momentum with many out-of-state bookings already in early 2017. Rez presents an abundantly versatile and technically pristine catalog of bass music complete with wonky dubstep rumblers, laid-back West Coast hip-hop beats, wobbly and meditative head bobbers, swampy snare alerts, minimal mid-range growlers and percussive halftime shakers….all of which boast insightful, unique and successful perspectives on dubstep music production.
