:::::::::::: BIO / KJ SAWKA ::::::::::::

On a cold winters day in October a child was born, broke his mothers pelvis and at that moment, a rumble was felt throughout the world; an omen of all the bass yet to come. Fast forward to present day and KJ Sawka has been an unstoppable force breaking down even the most immovable of objects. He has unleashed singles, remixes, and worldwide platinum records with the likes of Pendulum, Destroid, Conspirator, Blood Drums, ill.Gates, and Mr. Bill while also touring worldwide and giving back to producers everywhere.

“KJ Sawka plays some of the rawest drums around. And that’s before he adds electronics. On an acoustic drumset he creates the whirs, delays, effects, and sonic dislocations of electronic music. Adding an arsenal of devices further broadens his palette, providing an atmospheric bed for his extremely visceral drumming. “I really try to re-create the drum machine beats of electronic music with an acoustic drumset, simultaneously triggering the actual snare, kick, and hi-hat sounds,” Sawka explains from London. “I try to sound as electronic as possible. I become the machine.” [FreqCulture.com]

KJ along with his wife Cori hold down the prominent Impossible Records, through which they set loose number one record after number one record of some of the gnarliest heavy hitting bass music around.

Returning after five years of world domination with a 5 track EP titled “Unity of Purpose” This beast of an EP is riddled with his live drum breaks and other live instrumentation from years of world influence. Starting with the epic Prelude, an orchestral collaboration with Jason Camiolo who writes the majority of amazing music on the worldwide History Channel sets a dark and melodic tone foreshadowing what is to come.

Next, the long awaited ‘Face Crack’ a crushing dubstep/metal rock tune featuring KJs brother Keith Sawka on guitar which creates a live rock feel to the dubstep bombs intended to crack some faces͛ on the dance floor. Running Away a melodic drum n bass stemmer features the dark and beautifully crafted vocals of worldwide artist Emilia Sosa. The Time Has Come a drumstep smasher with influence of KJs group Destroid delivers that alien bass cannon sound at high speeds. Lastly, ‘Monster’, another drumstep mover goes deeper into more musical vibes traveling away from the dance floor a bit and entering melodic chill side that once again features the spine tingling vocals of the great Emilia Sosa. This EP is producer friendly with fully integrated NI STEM release as well as Ableton sessions and midi fighting packs for each song.
