One thing we love about consistently bringing you new artists spotlight is that we can tap into talent from all realms of the music world. Today we have a new Q&A with Dab City, a bright young producer that is quickly making a new for himself. We won’t go into to many details just yet so we don’t ruin the surprises tucked in below! After already having a bustling spring time we can only wait to see where Dabcity takes the rest of 2014.
Lets get everyone on the same page here; who are you and where are you tuning in from today?
What up! My name is Michael Larson. I’m 23 years old and from Santa Cruz, CA
How has the summer been starting off for you?
It has been epic! I’ve been going to a lot music festivals and other events. I was blessed to play on the Void stage at Emissions West Coast Bass Culture. I also attended Lucidity Festival and headlined a show at The Catalyst Club in Santa Cruz, CA on my 23rd birthday!! I grew up watching my favorite artists play at the Catalyst so it was definitely a blessing!
I <3 DABS. I kept saying, “dab city bitch” a couple years ago. I just got into DJing at the time and was trying to think of a name… My good friend and roommate Mickey was throwing out ideas. We were about to dab and I said the notorious expression “Dab City bitch” and blam… We concluded my name here on out be “Dab City!!!!”
YEEEE!!! I like the dirty bass. I started listening to electronic music in 2009. Datsik, Bassnectar, Caspa & Rusko to name a few. I grew up listening to rock and metal. I love when people just let loose and rage hard!!! I’m definitely one to be dancing in the crowd at shows and high-energy dubstep music makes me go bonkers. I produce what I want to hear.
You have an upcoming release coming down the pipes with MalLabel Music, how does it feel to team up with everyone over there?
It feels great!!! I went really far out of my way for this release. I used all new sound design and really pushed myself to create something new and exciting. This is by far my biggest accomplishment as a producer to date. I can’t wait for you guys to hear the new material!! I’m humbled to contribute to such a great team. They raise it!!!
Fun fact: I wrote the track MalLabel picked up while I was in Denver 😉
