Born in Tel Aviv and living in Austin, TX, The Widdler has been playing and producing music since he was ten. Renowned in the American dubstep scene since his inception, releases such as Sensei Samurai, Froggy Style, and Lady Dub are regarded as classics in the bass genre. Supported by artists like Bassnectar, Mary Anne Hobbes, Excision, Bukez Finezt, and 6Blocc, member of US imprints Dank ‘N’ Dirty Dubz and MalLabel Music, represented by Circle Talent Agency, and most recently signed to OWSLA Records, The Widdler is widely recognized as an innovator and originator of dub sound. Constantly practicing, The Widdler incorporates mix sessions into his daily routine, which translates to his flawless performances at shows and his headlining with the likes of Doctor P, Reso, Ajapai, and Tipper throughout the World. Currently spending his time between gigs in the studio, The Widdler is working hard to bring the freshest tunes to his fans with his newest releases to drop in 2014. Taking influence from various genres of music and lifestyle, his tunes come in all shapes and colors. From the chilled reggae dubs and blue mood atmospheres, to the mean menacing throbs of bass and percussion, The Widdler knows how to weave his musical roots with his production which makes each set entirely special. Sit back, light a spliff, and enjoy the sounds of The Widdler.
Hailing from the snow-capped mountains of Colorado, Dillard (born Dillon Gabehardt) first began his journey into the depths of bass music some time in 2006 and was consumed almost immediately by the power of sub-bass. He went to work on creating tunes soon after, molding a variety of personal influences into a unique sound that effortlessly blends rolling bass lines with glitched out percussion and a warm, vinyl-tinged je ne sais quoi that gives his his music a distinctly ‘Colorado’ vibe. In his foray into live performance, Dillard’s sets have become notorious not only for their variety, but for their potent combination of original productions and unreleased tunes. Of his sets Dillard says, ”I like to have a conversation with the crowd. I feed off their energy but at the same time, I want to take them into my head so they can vibe with the same things I vibe with.” Whether it’s a new release or the chance to see Dillard live in concert, this man is NOT a creative force to overlook.

Void Stasys X Sound System
The flagship Stasys Series is the definitive aural arsenal for those with the highest level of audio requirements. Equally at home on the largest tours and in the biggest installations, Stasys always exceeds expectations. With an output-to-size ratio among the highest in the industry, Stasys is fast becoming one of the shrewdest investments you can make. Touring companies using Stasys are discovering they can spec half the size system they normally would, which translates into major savings in transportation and crew costs.
Night clubs, music venues, and Houses of Worship are all discovering the sonic and economic benefits of installing Stasys. At a time when installation budgets are carefully controlled, investing in products that have the highest levels of output and definition with proven reliability is a top priority. Stasys systems fulfill these criteria and more without breaking the bank.
Stasys is characterized by tremendous power output and exceptionally low distortion. The enclosures readily form coherent arrays when used in multiples, retaining their inherently smooth response and musical sonic characteristics. Stasys Series products make use of many of the latest advancements in acoustic design technology. This has only been possible by utilizing our extensive R&D facilities and dedicated design team.
For example, all X Series products undergo a technique called ‘resonance mapping’. Hundreds of small accelerometers are attached to every surface of an enclosure, and measurements are taken that allow a 3D color map of resonant modes and densities to be displayed. This information is then used to determine material selection, pinpoint any problem areas, refine enclosure bracing, and keep structural mass to a minimum while maintaining the highest achievable output with least possible coloration.
Stasys loudspeaker systems represent some of the most advanced and refined audio products available in the world today. Audition Stasys and see how it can transform your expectations.
