Shockman Bio & Release Info

Voltage Music presents the debut solo EP from San Francisco producer Shockman (a.k.a. Ron Nachmann). His track “Oh Mi Natty” was featured on the ‘09 Voltage compilation Dub For The Dancefloor: Voltage Remixed and Unreleased. Previous Shockman titles include “Whatever” with Stellar Trax Sound System on Urban Revolutions: The Future Primitive Sound Collective compilation (2001), “Murther EP” with Jackie’s Army (Voltage Music, 2004) and “Kalimba Rock” with Dub I.D. on the Stateside Steppas compilation (Space Audio, 2010).

Shockman is known for punchy, sample-heavy tracks that blend Jamaican dub and dancehall elements with future bass programming. His tunes are perfect for a steppers dub club or a big dubstep rave. Shockman has DJed extensively, sharing the stage with Andrew Weatherall, Thievery Corporation, Tino Corp, Fila Brazilia, Gotan Project and Zion Train. Hear more Shockman music on his Soundcloud page.

Dubmatix: Canada’s Dubmatix has released several solo albums and dozens of singles as well as his own reggae producer sample packs. His “Electrocution Remix” of Shockout will please traditional and steppers dub heads with its steady kicks, keyboard chops, fluid bass and incredible echoes.

Subatomic Sound System: New York City’s Subatomic Sound System has collaborated with Lee Scratch Perry, Jahdan Blakkamoore and Dubblestandart as well as DJed and toured extensively. He pushes boundaries on his “808 Dub” mix, a funky uptempo rhythm that dips and drops for maximum club pressure.

Bakir: Based in New York, Bakir has created tracks and played live in the duo Spit Brothers and runs the Dubsalive label. Bakir’s ethereal “Deeper Dub” mix features great atmospherics and will please fans of dubstep producers Anti-Social, Synkro or F.

earlyw~rm: Toronto, Canada’s earlyw~rm is a talented reggae producer and live musician who twists traditional dub arrangements into modern psychedelic creations. His previous EP for Voltage is the label’s best selling title and he recently released his debut album Natty Driod on Dubmatix’s Renegade Media label.

The “Shock The Sound” EP is released digitally June 28, 2011.
