Hailing from San Francisco, California, bass scientist Antiserum has helped push West Coast dubstep to the forefront of the sound from day one. Constantly on tour from backwoods to big city in support of his heavy load of releases, he is on a quest to inspire and be inspired by the dancefloor crew. His sound skates the void of dark dub rollers and hype dance floor killers. His DJ sets are filled with high-impact mixes, precision blends, and big dubs from producers across the globe.
Antiserum's diverse but always earthquaking production output is available or coming soon on such respected labels as Argon, Narco.Hz, Full Melt, Cyberfunk, Steps in Time, Muti, Hollow Point, Mode, War, Bassism and True Tiger.
Blazing a trail after his debut album, DFRNT has been turning heads with his deep, 2 step influenced sound, with a wide range of support from Scuba to Hellfire Machina.
Currently based in Edinburgh, DFRNT runs the Echodub label, manages Modus magazine, and writes SittingOvation.
Mixing the spirit of rave with tropical heat DeVille is well known for seeking out the best bass music from round the world for his sets cutting together grime, garage and dubstep from the UK with anything else from round the world that has the same energy.

He has also played across the USA including SXSW as well as European gigs including Denmark, France, Portugal and Poland.
As a producer he mixes up the heavy bass and raw percussive energy of his DJ sets into dancefloor bombs that have found their way into the boxes of DJs across the spectrum from Mary Ann Hobbes to Starkey, DZ to King Cannibal, Rob Smith, Warlock and even Basement Jaxx. Upcoming in 2010 are remixes of reggae legend Max Romeo, Ghosttown ft Badness and Kanji Kinetic as well as an EP split in the summer with Sasquatch.
