CHAINSAW SOUND ::.
Rhythmicon | Chainsaw, NWJ, PacificDubStep | Victoria
Atma | Chainsaw, ,Suave Assassins | Vancouver
A tag-team combo you’ll want to be up front and center stage for, Atma & Rhythmicon bring a blend of dynamic dubstep and tasteful jungle to the tables. The phrase “chainsaw” was originally used in reference to the big snarly basslines in drum and bass music. With an unparalleled enthusiasm for their craft, the two formed the original collab “Chainsaw Distribution” as an outlet for supplying the scene with high quality artists, events and mixes. Years later, both have built studios and held down residencies. Working to further his music career, Atma moved to Vancouver and began promoting and playing with the Suave Assassins group, while Rhythmicon ran the VIBE night at Hush, and became one of the driving forces behind the Pacific Dubstep camp. Musically, Atma, (aka. Atma the Weapon), maintains the positive vibes. Known for combining tearin’ basslines with jazzy undertones, his mixes are frequently heavy soulful party smashers. Rhythmicon plays both deep and heavy dubstep; featuring uplifting instrumental riffs, thundering 808 bass, and driving rhythmic percussion. Expect a high-energy live set filled with original material that engages the crowd and pushes the boundaries of both minds and speakercones.
