Hailing from Calgary, Canada, Aversive is a bold up and coming Drum and Bass DJ/Producer who lives up to her name: Stopping at nothing to avert the masses from the humdrum of ordinary soundscapes while she paves her own path of sonic ingenuity.
Aversive has been gigging western Canada since 2012, opening the stage for such international icons as FreQ Nasty, Bluetech, Ill Esha, Kursa, Shamanic Technology, and Iris (of Quadrant and Iris). With thousands of Soundcloud plays since her first signed EP, Inner Visions, was released by MalLabel Music in early 2014, Aversive has earned invites to play festivals and groundbreaking events around western Canada and beyond. This includes Bamboo Bass Music Festival (Costa Rica), Awakening Music Festival, Indigo Pulse Music Festival, the Spectrum Stage at Motion Notion Music Festival, Female Arts & Music Exhibition and more! Within months after moving back to her hometown of Calgary in 2014, she was asked to play on the prestigious DnB Girls Ustream Radio Show, as well as do a feature mix for the respected Calgary based underground electronic music blog Footwork Jungle. Later in the spring of 2015, Aversive was asked to play a guest mix on the Remote Emissions Radio Show on CJSW, Calgary's top independent radio station, teach two music production workshops at the West Liberty University MAD Festival in West Virginia (U.S.A.), as well as do a mix for the High on Beats (Montreal / New York) DnB Girls L.O.U.D podcast series. With support from DnB Girls, Come Correct, 403DnB, and Footwork Jungle, Aversive started making a name for herself quickly as a DJ/Producer in Calgary. Whether its Liquid, Jungle, or dark Metalheadz Drum and Bass, Aversive knows how to rinse a proper set!
From 2014 into 2016 alone, Aversive has had 9 individual signed releases, on labels including, MalLabel Music (San Francisco, U.S.A.), The Outtallectual Collective (London, U.K.), The Glitch Shop (U.K.), Black Tuna Recordings (Vancouver, Canada), as well as multiple self released EPs. With the enthusiasm and grit of a true visionary, Aversive showcases her kaleidoscopic approach to electronic music production seamlessly. Whether its Drum and Bass, Jungle, or deep psychedelic Bass Music, her unique and enigmatic sound is hard to pass by. Combining influences from both old school and new school sounds, Aversive's tracks are pleasing to both old school Junglists and new bass music pioneers. Her sound is dark, expressive, and unyielding, and takes the listener on a journey into the depths of imagination and emotion. In early 2014 her debut signed EP, Inner Visions (released on MalLabel Music), earned praise and review from the popular electronic music blogs Afro Monk and The Dankles. Later in 2014, her mind bending and haunting IDM inspired DnB track “Intelligent Design” (released on the Outtallectual's Geotropism Compilation) was featured on the popular EDM Network blog DrumNBass.Net, reaching #4 on their Top 10 of the Month chart with over 9,000 plays on Soundcloud. Now, Fortress, her most recent 4 track EP (released on Black Tuna Recordings), has received a well earned 8/10 from the online electronic music mag Dub Selekta, and had a feature review written by Scottish Drum and Bass blog, DnB Dojo. Aversive will be turning heads again with her next release, a VIP mix of her bass enveloped half-step track, "Didgeridoo", coming out late January 2016.
