About

Nebakaneza is nuts! I think he is certifiably insane, but he seems to find his therapy by slamming Dubstep through the speakers. Don't be surprised if he interacts with the crowd and throws random things at you in the name of fun and mayhem. He has an eerie yet sexy style that covers many aspects of Dubstep from the face melting wobbles, to the strip your clothes off sultry sounds. He is a DJ that likes to use his mixer and turntables as instruments, so you will see him playing with the music like a DJ should. He looks scary, but is a friendly soul. Don't be afraid to run up to him during a set and show him some love. He may just give you a bear hug and show you love back.

The masked DJ has created quite the splash in the Bay Area dubstep scene. Since crawling out of the shadows in January of 2010 and joining the Irie Cartel crew, he has put out countless mixes, been in various publications, and helped start Ritual, one of the largest reoccurring dubstep events on the West Coast. He is also the music director for Wobble Wednesday on Live 105 which is the only dubstep radio show on terrestrial radio (CBS Broadcasting). He is a dubstep DJ with a wide range of styles from the ragga joints, to the sexy sub bass sounds, to the nasty filth, or the UK uptempo style. You may have seen him at the Emissions Campout, the Dub Fillmore festival, the Elements campout, Camp Questionmark's stage at Burning Man, Dub Mission or opening for Borgore and Caspa. This phantom is showing no signs of slowing down and is forever expanding his style, and his passion for bass is infectious.

The name comes from King Nebuchadnezzar II who was an evil ruler of ancient Babylon, and who built the Hanging Gardens. Eventually he was exiled and spent 7 years in the wilderness wandering the land like a beast. There are many rumors about the mask, no one knows the truth.

In a recent interview, Nebakaneza says, "I eat paint. I like to climb up into trees and jump down on little kids in the park and make them pee themselves. I am a convicted felon in 49 states and like to eat paint. I frequently go to Bingo tournaments and pretend I speak Italian, to Koreans. I have 17 girlfriends that are between the ages of 62 and 78, and I enjoy dining on a healthy plate of paint. On the 3rd Wednesday of every other month, in even numbered years, I take a bath in canned tuna fish mixed with live tuna fish, then lay in the street while dozens of feral cats lick my body clean. I frequently eat paint. Last night I met a sailor that I paid 73 cents to, and he beat me senseless while I did cart wheels on a 2007 Ford Fiesta. I am so much of a hippy vegan that I do not actually even eat food anymore, I just meditate until I am no longer hungry, and I have done this for 19 years, but for some reason I still have regular bowel movements that come out in vivid technicolor because it is only paint."
