Dead Air (S.U.B & Outsider)
Darkness is to space what silence is to sound; the interval. While not deceased, Dead Air (the collaborative project between Jon Outsider Camilleri and Mike S.U.B Hart), breathes life into some of the most animated styles on the low end spectrum of sound.
Both born and raised in the gritty ‘burbs of Toronto, their interest in music production started early with the collaborative purchases of their first set of turntables. After both becoming infected with a desire to DJ, they pooled their resources to purchase their first pieces of production gear and began experimenting with composing music. Initially starting out together, their paths separately led them to both becoming highly respected DJs and producers in their own respected niches. Answering the west coast’s call, Outsider and S.U.B both made their way out to British Columbia and, after a five year hiatus of collaborating, teamed up to form Dead Air.
Focusing on Restoring Filth in the Bassline these musical virtuosos are evading traditional genre rules with their drive to negate boundaries on their music. Seeking to delve into the dark unknown fringes, their sounds touch on anything and everything under a wide BPM spectrum – bass being the foundation. Hollow heeded tones and circuit bending basslines, rugged and raw, one becomes sensitive to the silhouettes of sounds that make up a Dead Air composition.
Contrasting their opaque and obscure sounds, these shadowed and shrouded individuals have consummated Dead Air’s arrival in the bass scene. Currently releasing through Wolf Sheep Records, watch for more from this duo as they inflict their dark and atmospheric sounds upon the world. So the darkness shall be the light, the stillness the dancing.
