12th Planet is in my personal top 5 must-see artists performing at this year’s Camp Bisco. He is a dubstep producer and DJ, based out of L.A., who has made nothing but big moves this year, playing a handful of fests, including Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival and SXSW, as well as headlining gigs full-force in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. He is currently working on producing a full-length, as well as working a handful of collabs in to the mix, including teaming up with Skrillex, Flinch and even Korn for some forthcoming releases. He’s worked with Datsik, Doctor P, Skream and Plastician in the past and is often dubbed America’s Dubstep King. Holla!
As I learned from this Q+A, he’s a man of few words who lets his wide-ranging tastes under the heavy bass umbrella speak for itself. He’s slotted Friday at 7:40 at the Grooveshark Tent. Bonus level no-brainer: download his Mishka mix and be sure to check out this quickie profile below the cut.
