Behind Pendulum and Destroid is the drummer KJ Sawka whose performances have rocked the world for many years. On his own, his productions have done the same, but this time around he enlists the help of Noya for “Rising Sun.” Released on Kannibalen Records, this dubstep single is a hot one, even by the esteemed
Between a resolute Destroid reunion, a volcanic eruption, and fervent performances from the likes of REZZ, Barely Alive, Virtual Riot, 12th Planet, Downlink and more, headbangers were surely given what they came for—the upper echelon in heavy-hitting bass.
Luckily, a hefty assemblage of full sets have been preserved from their prehistoric premieres and are available to listen to in full below.

Around 11 PM a small fire began at the top of the volcano, where Destroid played their first live show together since Ultra 2016. Personnel acted quickly and the situation was handled in a number of minutes. Dancing Astronaut was on the scene and captured the footage below.
After a brief closure of the main stage and subsequent approval by the fire marshal and sheriff, the festival resumed with Zeds Dead. Albeit, the volcanos were then dormant. No word has been given on whether the awe-inspiring pyrotechnics will resume. Luckily, zero injuries were reported as a result.

Excision enraptured the bass music community earlier in May when he announced the launch of his own three-day festival. Though discussion surrounding the event has been substantial, its details thus far are sparse. Recently, the Canadian artist revealed the dates of the festival (September 29 – October 1) through a semi-cryptic “cave painting,” but its lineup and location have yet to be announced.
Yesterday, May 17, marked a momentous announcement for the event. After over a year of hibernation, Destroid laconically broke their silence on social media to share a cave painting of their own. The post depicts a prehistoric image of the trio performing above an etching of the festival dates.
The formidable live band – made up of Excision, Downlink, and producer/Pendulum drummer KJ Sawka – is a veritable rarity on the festival circuit, with Ultra 2016 marking their most recent appearance. Destroid’s larger-than-life aesthetic and overwhelmingly loud, aggressive sound make them an ideal candidate for a concert of such low-end magnitude, and their inclusion foreshadows an epic lineup to come.
Suffice it to say, the next cave painting has a tough act to follow.
Well maybe it is the second since obviously Excision himself will be playing his very own festival. Lucky for all bass music fans out there the second artist has taken to social groups to announce their appearance. We all probably could have guessed this one as Excision is a member of the group.
