False Panic is a collective entity comprised of the personal story of artist Justin Andrew overcoming his fear of sounds in addition to his inspiration from science fiction, history, and fantasy forged in the depths of his mind. The idea behind False Panic is that the brand itself is a technological singularity, telling stories of myth and history from different universes and timelines. Every False Panic track is composed in a certain "year" and "setting", tracks such as "H" -- a glitch hop track set in the 1920's, his remix of Kings "I Can't Make Her Real" set in the year 2004 in Afghanistan, and the song "Spirit Warrior" which takes place thousands of years in the past in ancient Greece. Combining the sickening grime of dubstep, sound design native to drum and bass music, the symphonies of the nearing Apocalypse, and without a doubt, his roots in progressive metal... False Panic's sound is evolving into a unique monster that transcends many genres. With support from many popular electronic artists in the "Bass Music" scene, as well as established labels Play Me Records and Certified Bass Records, False Panic is growing in popularity and fandom every single day. In 2014, False Panic joined artist family 1200 Hustle. In late 2014, False Panic charted #1 in Glitch Hop Releases and #8 in Dubstep Releases on Beatport for the release "Certified Bass Takeover: Volume 1". In 2015, False Panic released his remix of RIOT's "Jazz Cat Funk" on Play Me Records alongside Terravita, Eliminate, Secret Panda Society, SirensCeol, and others.
