Raw, real, and grimy - 12th Planet, a.k.a. John Dadzie shows no mercy when he drops the bass. Touted as one of the artists responsible for the dubstep explosion in the U.S., 12th Planet has paved the way for the influx of dubstep, drum 'n' bass, and trap that continues to flow through the music scene.
For their last show of the tour, bass enthusiasts 12th Planet, Loudpvck and Kove will let our ears rest after one more heavy night in San Diego, hosted by Eventvibe and Bassmnt nightclub. After interviewing all three acts, it's no doubt that 12th is a legend in their book.
"John is never boring for a single second," dishes Kenny of Loudpvck. "He is an unbelievable DJ and an even better wingman. I hope we still have as much energy and drive as he does after being in the game for so long!"
Check out the interview below with 12th Planet, as I squeezed out 7 questions from the "American Dubstep King"!
In short, social media has become a vital component to becoming a successful artist nowadays versus 10 years ago.
We just released a Candyland record called "Murda". You can hear it here:
I don't listen to music to chill out really. I play video games and watch TV!
I turn up to the songs we made in the studio that week, or to the songs I get to play in my set!
I would love to do a record with ASAP Rocky, Drake, or Schoolboy Q. I think we could make some magic.
I play a lot of Clash of Clans, and watch Game of Thrones. I get a lot of inspiration from that stuff [laughs].
It's the last show of the tour, so you can expect to hear House, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, and Trap... all night long!
