DIRT MONKEY— aka Patrick Megeath, is smashing 2018. With over a dozen recent
high-profile releases, and a stacked tour schedule already in full effect, a new era has
begun, and more new tunes are on the way. Over the past several years, Dirt Monkey has carved his uplifting, bouncy, and unique sounds into the Denver dubstep community, and onto the national touring scene. He finished last year with a strong release schedule: “Wubula” (SubCarbon), “Beef” w/ Bookie T (SubCarbon), “The Disciple Roundtable EP” (Disciple), and multiple releases on Wakaan. He took this brisk pace into to a fall tour with Bear Grillz and a
Ganja White Night tour at the beginning of this year that sold out nearly every date.
As a pioneer in the dubstep and bass music genres, Dirt Monkey has garnered support from many of his peers: Skream, Benga, Rusko, Excision, Zeds Dead, Griz, Virtual Riot, Annie Nightingale (BBC Radio 1), Flux Pavilion, Downlink, Ganja White Night, and Protohype. Dirt Monkey’s recent remix of Rusko’s “Woo Boost” (SubCarbon) was supported by Rusko himself, and his recent “Wubula” album gained wide support across the festival circuit from broad swaths of well-known DJs. He has worked and collaborated with a wide-variety of artists such as: Ganja White Night, DMVU, Illenium, Party Wave, Run DMT w Barrington Levy, AMP Live, and Jantsen. Dirt Monkey has performed at a countless number of breathtaking venues, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre, clubs in France, and Beta Nightclub in Denver, CO (where he has held a residency for the last 5 years). Also, for the past four years, he established and ran the record label, Kairos Audio, before handing it off to label partner and co-founder, Jantsen Robertson.
Fresh off a sold out co-headline tour with Subtronics, he used that momentum to go
full steam into a headlining set at Shambhala. The wubs-master also made stops at
EDC Las Vegas, Global Dance Festival, Nocturnal Wonderland, and Lost Lands and
he’ currently in the middle of a 40+ date fall tour in support of his most recent release
on Rise of the Octopeel. Dirt Monkey has always strived to fuse the wonky, high-energy sounds of old school dubstep, and the crisp sounds of IDM. Now, he’s succeeding in bringing that sound
to a global audience.
Preston Charles, better known by his stage name, SubDocta, exploded onto the scene in 2017 with his wildly successful single “2009 Was Tight”, catching major support from a number of heavy hitters, including Bassnectar. SubDocta is most know for throwing down and producing his own brand of dubstep and hybrid music that he has ‘so eloquently’ dubbed “West Coast Wobble”, paying tribute to his upbringing on the west coast of the United States. In 2018 alone, SubDocta’s music has been released on Fresh Blood, Borgore’s new label imprint and home to some of the hottest up and coming producer talent, as well as SubCarbon, label imprint to the ever-growing Ganja White Night. He has also supported Ganja White Night on a number of sold-out shows this year and has been called on by Riot Ten to support on his 2018 “Hype Or Die”Tour, by Dirt Monkey to support on his 2018 “Rise Of The Octopeel” Tour, and by Opiuo to support on his 2018 “SYZYGY 01” Tour. As one of the fastest growing bass acts, SubDocta has blessed the stages of some of the coolest festivals in North America, including, but not limited to;Valhalla, Big Dub Festival, Lucidity, StillDream, The Untz, Enchated Forest, Infrasound, and Bass Camp, to name a few. With no signs of slowing down, and growing support from all of his peers, you can anticipate his debut EP to release this year on SubCarbon and for his name to continue making noise across the industry. Get ready for the “West Coast Wobble” take over. Coming to a city near you…
