Freq Nasty's legendary low frequency live sets are known vibrational experiences aggressively drawing on elements of drum and bass, dubstep, and breakbeats. His recent Monsters of Bass tour headlining with Opiou and Marty Party is only one highlight in a long, celebrated career delivering undulating walls of sound .

To best simulate the Freq Nasty live set experience, hook your computer to a subwoofer equipped sound system, turn the volume up all the way, hold the subwoofer caringly to your chest, and prepare to dance.

Glitch Mob founding member turned solo artist, Kraddy continues evolving his bass heavy hybrid sound melding hip-hop, dubstep and dancehall. Wielding rock and punk sensibilities, his current tour features a live drummer, with a sound Kraddy describes as "Led Zeppelin 3000." There's little doubt of Kraddy's candidacy for future festival tents.

Here's Kraddy's 2008 breakout single "Android Porn," and 2011's "No Comply" single from the Labyrinth EP.
