DESTROID in San Francisco, First Ever Show ft. Excision, Downlink, KJ Sawka

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

This past weekend DESTROID—the new mega collaboration led by Canadian bass master Excision featuring fellow Canadian bass artist Downlink and drummer KJ Sawka from platinum-selling electronic rock band Pendulum—made their debut live performance in San Francisco, CA, where they revealed their highly technological and boundary-pushing live show and costumes in full. Excision and Downlink performed with custom-crafted, MIDI-controlled “guitars,” while KJ Sawka banged away on a fully custom digital drum kit. DESTROID recently put up this gnarly video of their debut performance.
DESTROID breaks out of the traditional electronic DJ format and performs as a full-on live dubstep band, bringing forth the next stage of the dubstep movement executed in a way bass music has never seen. DESTROID have confirmed a select run of headlining and music festival performances as a full live band including appearances at the Orion Music + More Festival June 9 in Detroit and a featured performance at this year’s Camp Bisco.
DESTROID recently released their debut full-length album, DESTROID—THE INVASION, on their own independent imprint Destroid Music. Featuring 10 original tracks from the group that isset to revolutionize bass and electronic music worldwide, DESTROID—THE INVASION is currently streaming in full at SPIN: DESTROID is set to launch minds into the stratosphere through the power of live bass music, delivering electronic devastation and cerebral elevation. DESTROID is upon us. Elevate your existence now or be DESTROID.
