Iris Presents: Shlump Alien Trip Tour @ Believe Music Hall | Sat March 25th
Michael Petzel aka Shlump grew up in California’s Bay Area, learning the guitar at age 9 and falling in love with music at first through the energy of metal and punk. Developing a taste for electronic music in high school via Apex Twin, Squarepusher, and Warp Records, he began to jump into music production, combining drum loops with recordings of his guitar. After being blown away the sub bass in his intro to dubstep, Coki and Cluekid’s “Sensi Dub”, and experiencing his first west coast electronic music festivals, Michael’s love for bass music bloomed and he began to to develop his signature sounds as he dedicated himself to his music career.
Infusing elements of classic dubstep with west coast flavor with otherwordly sound design, Shlump has pioneered his unique “Alien Bass” sound, creating a vibrant galaxy of bass filled with forward thinking nuance and massive waves of low end. His live sets take audiences across the continent on a psychedelic spaceship ride through Shlump’s universe, visiting high energy devastating supernovas of bass and voyaging into depeer realms filled with the cosmic twinkle of sonic stardust.
Shlump has abducted the ears of a wide range of electronic music fans with releases on Wakaan, Deadbeats, Circus Records, Deep Dark & Dangerous, along with collaborations with and remixes for artists such as Liquid Stranger, LSDream, and Doctor P. He has showcased his Alien Bass sound at festival stages such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Shambhala, Bass Canyon, and many more.
While at home, Shlump enjoys skateboarding, hiking, and spending time with his kitten and family In between exploring the auditory mysteries of outer space.
A longtime skateboarder and hip hop devotee, Geoff “Stylust” Reich has always been a rebel with a passion for his art form, so it’s no surprise that this Canadian DJ/producer’s talent for fusing rap hooks and heavy bass with electronic music has earned him the rep as a creative renegade carving his own path.
Touring as Stylust, Geoff has played all over the United States, Canada, and Europe, appearing at major festivals like Shambhala, Coachella, Outlook, LIB, Envision, and BassCenter to name a few. Stylust’s uncanny ability to melt multiple influences and genres has led to music that’s reached millions of listeners, earning him exciting releases and collabs with artists like Bassnectar, Minnesota, Truth, and many others. With a bass-heavy yet timeless sound, Stylust electrifies dancefloors with his impeccable mixing and high energy stage presence.
The sleepy redwood forests of Santa Rosa, California got a rude wake up call when Richie Lucov and Jake Bragonier found in one another a love of precision sound design and fist-pumping bass anthems. The two-headed beast Xotix threads the needle of making the front row headbang, while the artists in the back of the room nod in approval. To that end, Lucov and Bragonier have landed tracks and EPs on Wormhole Music Group, Wubaholics, Spicy Bois, Bassrush, Sleeveless Records, and Excision’s Subsidia imprint along with Dirt Monkey’s 19k.
With the pedigree and listenership of acts that have been around twice as long, Xotix have burst out of the pandemic with a renewed focus on touring and releasing music, with high-profile collabs and even higher-caliber showcases, festivals, and tours planned for 2022. From a gorgeous NorCal hamlet to sweaty clubs to summer stages under the spotlights, the Xotix boiz are coming.
