Operating under the name 12th Planet, Los Angeles electronic producer, John Dadzie, has been passionately championing the dubstep sound since it emerged in the US in the late 2000s. Dadzie co-counded the reputable electronic record label SMOG and hosts a monthly DJ night in Orange Country devoted to high profile and up-and-coming dubstep artists. In his own work, he incorporates twinkly vibraphone and piano lines into the typical dubstep formula of deep bass tones, spliced vocal samples and breakbeat style drums. Dadzie is also frequently commissioned for remix work for both electronic and rap artists.
Coming out of the Texas country movement in the mid 80s, Robert Earl Keen has managed to bridge the gap between fans of traditional Nashville country--people who like back-porch, guitar pickin' as well as alt-country hipsters--with his eagle-eyed storytelling and sly sense of humor. As is true of many of his Texas contemporaries, Keen tours heavily, often treating over 200 audiences a year to his tales of lovable losers and their raucous barroom antics.
