In the beginning there was Detroit Techno and now there is Dubstep. Jason “Serax” Richards has been throwin down behind the decks since 98’ but formally moved onto the Dubstep scene in 2007 and has been hooked ever since. It’s not the same two-step either but hard-hitting basslines and dirty beats that dominate his tracks.
Born and raised in Detroit and a self-taught DJ, Serax had the early influences of Jeff Mills and Mark Moss. His original mix was the “jump up style” of drum and bass but he quickly moved to harder beats and fell in love with the Reggae and Ragga DNB style. His Dubstep influences include Caspa, Rusko, Excision, Borgore, Datsik, Bar 9, Skream, 16 bit, Emalkay, MRK1, Reso, Ill Gates and Mistabishi.
Serax has played venues spanning the United States, spinning alongside the likes of Rusko, Datsik, Borgore, Vaski, NTRLD, Capital J, HULK, AK1200, Dieselboy, ODI, Freaky Flow, Aphrodite and Juan Atkins. Some as Motor Lounge, St. Andrew's, Alvins (D'Jungle), Clutch Cargo's, Velvet Lounge, Solar at Blind pig in Ann Arbor, Bassline Monday's @ Necto, The labyrinth below city club, The Works, The Packard plant, Bleu, Foran's, 10 Critics Oslo and many more. That’s in addition to residency stints and various after-hour venues in Detroit and Ann Arbor.
After a brief hiatus, Serax is back on the scene with the same “wobble swagga” as before, delivering pure bass pleasure and killin’ it for dubsteppers and drum and bass junkies alike.
