DJs NiT GriT and Kraddy celebrate the full moon

Frequent criticism of electronic music is that its synthetically generated sound lacks the capacity to induce the same level of emotion as live instrumentation. San Jose dubstep producer NiT GriT (Danny Beall) casts aside these doubts, shattering common misconceptions with his inspired and deeply personal sound. Feelings of rage, passion, betrayal, uncertainty and other meaningful elements of the human experience are all distinctly present in the dark and brooding melodies woven from the fabric of NiT GriT’s imagination.

NiT GriT demolishes genre norms, demonstrating beyond a doubt that an often overused formula can yield phenomenal results when imbued with deep personal honesty and a devout attention to the most minute details. With nearly all of his tracks appearing on SoundCloud’s weekly “What’s Hot” charts, NiT GriT has developed a reputation as an internet phenomenon. However, despite his rapid rise as a pioneer of the american dubstep sound, NiT GriT remains a personal musical project, built by the always-humble Beall.

Los Angeles-based EDM artist Kraddy has always brought the undiluted sound of the underground to new audiences. He was as a founding member of The Glitch Mob to his solo work, Kraddy (born Matthew Kratz) and has always been known for shattering genre conventions while moving crowds. From his breakthrough 2008 hit “Android Porn” to the innovative bangers comprising his latest EP “Labyrinth,” Kraddy continues to hybridize hip-hop, dubstep and dancehall with face-melting panache and rock ‘n’ roll bravado.
