Subverse-NYC is a New York based events engine focused on the deep, dark, and upfront incarnations of dubstep and bass music. Founded in December 2012 by Max Mischief (formerly of Bass Fueled Mischief) and I.N.I (of Rinse Magazine / DNB Nation), Subverse-NYC aims to create an outlet for the dark and minimal within the five boroughs, from across the US and the globe. The Tsunami Bass Experience in conjunction with Subverse-NYC are pleased to announce the first unveiling of their new line of handcrafted custom LABHORN subwoofers at the upcoming TRUTH and MESCK event. First developed by Danely Sound Labs, the unique Nautilus shaped folded horn design of these bass bins affords a depth that creates natural compression of the audio waves which yields unparalleled clarity. Standing at just under four feet tall, they are truly an experience that is to be felt as much as heard. Enhancing the The Paper Box‘s house NEXO system, TBE will be featuring these incredibly efficient and powerful horn-loaded bass cabinets front and center together with Tsunami Bass rear fills to provide an exceptional bass culture experience!

Sonic architects of songs with an emotional heft as heavy as the subwoofer rupturing basslines that underpin their work, TRUTH are one of New Zealand’s finest creative exports. Respected across the globe since inception several years ago, Andre Fernandez and Tristan Roake, both world-class producers and party-rocking DJs, have both cut a clear pathway through the international dubstep scene.

Through these, including critically acclaimed single “The Fatman” (as released via Deep Medi Muzik) and their Aquatic Lab released album Puppets, Truth have seen their stock rise, placing them as in-demand remixers and collaborators to The Nextmen, Miss Dynamite, Shapeshifter, The Black Seeds, Silkie, Kromestar, Tunndige, Datsik and countless other figures of note.
