The tour that’s been 6 years in the making has finally arrived! With just under 1 million followers on Soundcloud, Never Say Die Records is easily the undisputed superpower of the bass music world (not to mention one of the most influential and prolific labels in electronic music), and now they have their sights set Down Under as they prepare to embark on the first ever Australian Never Say Die tour.
They definitely aren’t holding back either with label boss SKISM, along with 2 of the freshest and most exciting talents to have emerged in recent years, Must Die! And LAXX, gearing up for 5 massive shows in Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Newcastle this December.
An epic tour like this was always going to take some intense planning, and Inhibit is extremely proud to announce the highly anticipated tour of this bass music scene leader!
Internationally renowned DJ, pioneering producer, label head and artist manager – these are the job titles that summarize SKisM’s illustrious career. As one of the forefathers of heavy dubstep, he has collaborated with and remixed the likes of Flux Pavilion, Excision, Zomboy, Porter Robinson and The Foreign Beggars. Known to his peers as the ‘Dj’s Dj’, SKisM’s technical prowess and energy on four decks has cemented his name as one of the busiest and most electrifying DJ’s on the circuit. As owner and A&R of Never Say Die, one of the most prolific labels in electronic music, SKisM has had a hand in bringing some of the freshest music to the masses.
Must Die! (USA)
Pushing boundaries since 2011, the astounding versatility and unique production style of MUST DIE! (otherwise known as Lee Bates), has gained him global popularity. The DJ has released vast amounts of material spanning several labels such as Ultra, Dim Mak, Play Me, Mad Decent and Atlantic Records, but truly found his stride when signing to the UK-based powerhouse Never Say Die. With 2014 seeing the release of his hotly anticipated ‘Death & Magic’ LP on Skrillex’s OWSLA Records, Beatport chart domination instantly followed, with ‘Gem Shards’ holding the top spot for four weeks. MUST DIE! is definitely one of the biggest acts in the bass scene today.
The incredibly unique sound of LAXX is currently tearing up the bass music world; his distinctive brand of ‘Twitch’ set to be the sound of the future. He has gathered a wealth of DJ support from the worlds biggest tastemakers with Skream & Benga, Mistajam and Flux Pavilion just a few of those giving him support.. 2013 saw him support Knife Party, Noisia, Lunice and Koan Sound, expanding his growing fan base and cementing his name as a producer who can stamp his individuality across multiple genres. He is the future of Never Say Die. This will be the debut Australian tour of LAXX.
