X&G is the coming-together of producers Xian (Christian Williams) and Gaszia (Aaron Spasion), who met after they both moved from California to Salt Lake City (separately). This month, they’ll be playing The Drop’s notoriously bass-heavy night at Dada. Check out our full interview with the duo here.
British DJ and producer Peverelist made his mark on the UK's early dubstep scene with 'Roll With the Punches,' one of the genre's most celebrated tracks. He has since stayed one step ahead of the zeitgeist, pushing bass-heavy sounds through his own productions and his label Livity Sound. Pev's show, with longtime collaborator Kowton, will take place on Feb 11 at Dada. Check out our full interview with Pev here.
