Producer, DJ, Audio Engineer, Educator
Emerging from the American midwest, Mikrodot is seen as a pioneer in dubstep’s modern movement. His music maintains heavy dubstep’s infectious energy, but redefined in the context of the genre’s more minimal, dub-flavored sound system tradition. Coupled with a positive message and world instruments, the result is a sound uniquely his own: sometimes aggressive - often meditative - and unapologetically wonky.
Mikrodot’s future-facing perspective shines through his music. He cites ethnic sounds as a primary influence on his productions. The artist’s innate creativity is complimented by a formal education in audio engineering, and a clever approach to the digital music industry. More concerned with creating genuine music and community than achieving commercial success, Mikrodot generally self-releases, or releases his tracks with his friends. He is featured on Sub Garden, The Undergrowth, Old Ghost Records, and others, including his collaborative EP with Prophet and SixChakra on Abysmal Entities Archive.
As a DJ, Mikrodot’s penchant for sharing his passion for the 140 sound has earned him fans all over the world. His proficiency on sound systems is a skill sure to impress any bass hungry crowd: memorable performances at The Black Box in Denver, CO justify the artist’s place on the Sub.mission Agency roster. As a representative of Sub.mission, Mikrodot marches alongside artists and peers, including The Widdler, Pushloop, Prophet, and Chief Kaya, on their .mission to move people through sound, not hype.
