As the consciousness of the underground bass music scene becomes more aware of its own infinite possibilities, one artist has become the spearhead of this movement. Samuel Jhon aka Subduktion works tirelessly to hone his subsonic frequencies into some kind of entity that is as powerful as it is futuristic. By blending elements of jungle, hip hop and dub. He creates sound that unleashes seismic waves of energy over his audience, shifting their movement on the dance floor like the tectonic plates below their feet. Prepare to plunge into the Subduktion Zone.
“Elysium gives us a number of different facets of Jhon’s production, but we selected “Commonism” for premiere today, because it really packs a lot into its four minute and thirty-nine second frame. A glitch-hop underbelly provides the foundation for some experimental dubstep sounds. It’s part and parcel what makes ShadowTrix such a reliable provider of west coast bass. The brand really does latch onto truly innovative music that blends groove with exploration.”

The course landscape of electronic music is a constantly shifting anomaly. Enter Subduktion, a Pacific Northwest based producer shaking the very foundation of sound with his unique and groundbreaking take on the halftime sound. Combining chopped drum work with earth shattering basslines, Subduktion taps into his lifelong background in music to allow him to carefully weave intricate, infectious melodies in between each swing of his tribal drum patterns. His music feels larger than life, giving one the sense of standing on top of one of the world’s highest mountains. Having already shaken the dance floors of What The Festival, Emissions Festival, Burning Man, Pirate Party and many more, there is no doubt one can expect even more Subduktion sightings at a festival near you in 2019.
“The young music maker does an excellent job of fusing classic and modern styles of drum & bass into one cohesive unit.”
