Founded at the turn of the millennium, NYC's Subatomic Sound System has built a reputation worldwide for genre-bending productions, explosive shows, and breaking down barriers with the group's positive messages and unique adaptation of 1970s Jamaican sound system culture and analog dub reggae studio techniques to current bass music genres, digital technology, and live performance. A record label, DJ, production crew, live band, and group of event promoters all rolled into one, the Subatomic Sound crew is at work in NYC on every level. Spearheaded by Emch as producer, DJ, and musician, Subatomic Sound's releases span from dub to dubstep and everything bass-heavy in between.
A few of Subatomic Sound System's contributions to music history include the group's wild collaboration with Dubblestandart to produce dub reggae innovator Lee "Scratch" Perry's first dubstep tracks; eclectic collaborations with icons like filmmaker David Lynch, Prince Far-i, & UK punk pioneer Ari Up of the Slits; as well as unusual electronic projects with new school reggae torchbearers like Anthony B, Elephant Man, Jahdan Blakkamoore, and Dubblestandart. Subatomic Sound Radio blasts out to a footprint of 11 million terrestrial listeners in the greater NYC area on KEXP's Mo-Glo broadcast on Radio New York, 91.5FM, and also on the internet via Brooklyn Radio.net.
Subatomic Sound System has performed throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and Russia. The group's leader Emch can also be found playing guitar for Dubblestandart and Lee "Scratch" Perry.
