DJG: The Bay Area Badman

Guten tag everybody!  Hope everybody is ready for another great weekend, Bassweight Society couldn’t be MORE ready.  As we ease you into the weekend we’re going to stuff some DJG down your throat, thanks to a request from a BWS family member.  With that said, we want everybody to know that although we have our own agenda, we are here for the fans.  If you have any requests on topics, artists, events, etc., lets us know and we will do our best to accompany them!  You can email us directly at bassweightsociety@gmail.com , or you can shout out on our Facebook Page.

So, today we’re highlighting Dean J. Grenier, aka DJG.  This man is, undoubtedly, one of the most successful and talented Dubstep producers hailing from the U.S.  His appearance into the scene in 2008, with the release of  ‘Shadow Skanking’/’Joyful Sound’, was one of extraordinary recognition.  Immediately receiving support from names like N-Type and Mary Anne Hobbes, Dean’s career as a producer took off very quickly.  As his releases piled up, so did the support from BIG name DJ’s/Producers like Skream, Pinch, Joe Nice, and Headhunter.  His ability to incorporate the deep aspects of dubstep into techy,  funky, and dance floor friendly tracks has gained him releases on lables like Wheel & Deal, Subway, and LoDubs.  Aside from his amazing production abilities, DJG is also an absolutely outstanding DJ, exhibiting an extreme amount of enthusiasm for the music he plays.  As put by Mary Anne Hobbes, his sets are “devastatingly good”.  Like a connaisseur of any sort, DJG understands the principles and theories of sound, which is made very clear in his mixing, as he obtains an almost flawless balance of the frequency spectrum.  It is producers such as DJG, alongside artists like Matty G, Roommate, Noah D, and Antiserum, to name a few, that keep the U.S on the forward-thinking map.  For that, Bassweight Society gives a formal salute to you, DJG.

If you haven’t heard DJG’s music, PLEASE lend an ear to this man’s amazing talents.  We guarantee that you will not be dissappointed.  Below, as always, you will find some music that Dean has put on his Souncloud page.  Also there are two links to the albums ‘Voids One’ and ‘Voids Two’, which is a compilation of DJG’s works ranging from 2007-2010.  He gave these out for free download sometime last year on his website, DJG Sounds.  Both of these albums display the amazing talents discussed above, each having their own underlying theme.  The first album is intended for the ravers, embodying “dark, energetic, and moody rave vibes”, while the second album was more of an exploration of sound, on a more “personal, lighter” level. Please download these and spread the sounds of DJG to those who have not heard them.

Alright folks, that’s the latest from BWS.  Hope everyone has a crazy, yet safe, weekend filled with good people, good vibes, and good sounds.

One Love To The Gods.
