This event is all ages

Pay close attention to a sly pair of audio architects that have been steadily crafting original sounds with emotional heft, rupturing basslines, and a broken beat technique that has become all their own. With an arsenal of chart-topping tracks including over 100 original productions & remixes, K THEORY, have marked their definitive pathway through the electronic & bass music soundscape. Throughout the past two years K THEORY has dominated Beatport, as well as hype machine claiming top spots on both sites, and have had multiple premieres on Earmilk & Thissongissick.

Their original singles entitled "18th Century Gangster / Glitch & Blues" finished at #2 and #5 on the Beatport Top 100 Glitch-Hop Charts, not a surprise the album recorded sales in the top 20 at Additech.com under 2011's Top Grossing Albums. Their body of work has sparked industry wide interest, with support coming from EDM demigod, Gareth Emery. Their first single of the year, "Good & Gone", was listed as the #1 selling single for Addictech.com for 2012. With official remixes for for Adrian Lux (Ultra), Gareth Emery (Garuda), and Rebecca & Fiona (Universal), the future is looking quite bright for K THEORY.
Longtime friends Eddie Smith III, Jesse Rankins and Jonathan Wells were at a crossroads. It was 2010 and the Alabama natives were accomplished DJs, producers and musicians living in Houston. Yes, they were making a comfortable living making music, but something was lacking.

Embracing WatchTheDuck as both a mantra and a lifestyle, the three unplugged from the music industry scene and adopted a new mindset. They also began creating music that reflected their disparate musical influences: rap, soul, electronic, dance, trap, booty, dubstep. The results – with Jesse focusing on vocals, Eddie bass and Jonathan keyboard – were revolutionary.
From the fog of the Bay comes a newcomer just oozing bass pheremones. A little shake up from the normal, Bassex combines elements of electro and hard hitting dubstep to create his own unique style of bass music that can only be described as the innuendo behind his name, bass sex. With releases on Play Me, Burn the Fire, Killpop, Monstercat, and Heavy Artillery, you can seriously expect big things from this 21 year old youngster in the near future.
