For Los Angeles bassline technician BARE, aka Sean Rodela, 2010 will be fondly remembered as the year his twisted face melting sickness exploded into a worldwide epidemic. Taking the dubstep scene by storm with his staggering studio output and electrifying live performances, there is no question BARE has clawed his way into the ranks of the bass music elite - and he's not going anywhere. If you don't know, time to get to know...
The BARE sound is a product of deep roots in rock, west coast hip-hop (as part of the Vital Mindz collective) and aggressive drum 'n' bass (as past alias Reborn). These influences, combined with ultra crisp drum programming, slick melodies and mind altering bass modulation, spawn face melting dubstep anthems that practically rewind themselves. "I'd have to say that the love of making something from nothing inspires me to make music," BARE says. "There is no better feeling than when you see people go insane to something you created from scratch!"'BARE's first release, the ragga-influenced "Culture" on Terminal Dusk recordings last March, was charted by DJs worldwide via Chemical Records, and put BARE on the radar alongside other members of the already incendiary Los Angeles dub community. The second release, the Groupie Love Life EP on Reid Speed's Play Me imprint, held down multiple top 10 spots on Beatport's coveted download rankings for over a month, and showed the world the BARE sound was a force to be reckoned with. Soon after, BARE was recruited by drum and bass legend Dieselboy as one of a select few artists torepresenthis breakthrough Subhuman imprint (alongside Numbernin6, Muffler, and Smash Gordon), and from there the buzz grew into a deafening roar. Releases on Ultragore, Basshead Music,Tuff Love Dubs and other high profile labelsfollowed, and BARE tracks found their way onto the playlists of Excision, Funtcase, 12th Planet, Borgore, MRK1 and other high profile dubstep artists around the world. Unofficial reworks of "Fine Day" and "Shot Me Down"released online spread like wildfire, amassing tens of thousands of plays/downloads and counting. BARE's studio output is astounding to even the most prolific producers - his uncanny ability to crank out top quality tracks onan almost weekly basis leaves his fans with plenty to sink their teeth into.
The madness doesn't end there. A monster behind the decks, BARE's high energy, "all killer no filler" DJ performances have earned him a reputation as atough act to follow. He's developed a particularly rabid fan base -anyone who's experienced a BARE set (and lived to talk about it) will tell you he's a DJ who absolutely loves what he does. BARE is never afraid to engage hiscrowd- he tends to be as active on the mic as he is on the decks, keeping the crowd locked and constantly coaxing them to go as mental as possibly. In addition to notable one-off gigs at some of the nation's most notable venues(Dub Nation, Dubtroit, Sub.Mission, Frequency, etc.), his explosive performances have earned him a spot on the Subhuman tour alongside heavyweights Dieselboy and Smash Gordon - invading a city near you in 2011. Sean has a genuine love for those that take an interest in his music. Members of his social networks areconstantly treated to studio teasers, video clips, mixes and free tracks as a thank you for their support. In an unprecedented move, BARE also created an exclusive VIP remix and a run of T-shirts for the city that got theloudeston a recent mini-tour (congratulations Denver). "Mad, mad, MAD love to the fans," BARE says; "You guys make me what I am and I do what I do for you! Much more free stuff to come this year!"
BARE's dedication to bass music was recently rewarded with the title of "Best New Dubstep Artist of 2010" by Beatport. Knowledge Magazine recently described BARE as "revolutionizing the sound of dubstep with his elegant andmelodicstructures, that will surely fool you once his dirty down-south-like grimey basslines get your body moving with sheer excitement." Across the pond, the BARE sound recently caught the attention of Virus SyndicateDJ/producer MRK1 - as a result, three BARE tracks (including the dancefloor annihilating "Like a G6" rework) were chosen to represent the VS crew in the BBC Radio One Dubstep Soundclash (leading the VS crew to declare themselves victorious). A release/remix on MRK1's Contagious imprint is one of many projects slated for the new year.
The momentum shows no sign of slowing in the months to come. A Subhuman tour (with Dieselboy, BARE, Smash Gordon) kicks off in early February, with dates already scheduled throughout the country. More releases & remixes arealreadyin the pipeline for Subhuman (including an artist album and a massive collaborative release with the likes of Numbernin6, Muffler, and Mark Instinct to name a few), Buygore / Ultragore, and Play Me Records. BARE wasrecently commissioned for a brutal rework of metalcore band Asking Alexandria's "A Single Moment of Sincerity", which should see the light of day soon. A collaboration with Borgore is in the works, and BARE continues to refinehis solo sound daily with constant studio time and an undying dedication to music. "Some serious producers and sounds are coming on a constant basis now, and I love every second of it! The future for dubstep looks super bright!" Keep your eyes and ears open - BARE is on the warpath for 2011, melting faces in a city near you
