Captain Panic! is an electronic music production duo based out of Southern California. Andrew McKay and Michael Myers teamed up at the end of 2010 and by the beginning of 2011 they were already touring nationwide. Specializing in what is known as "Alien Bass", Captain Panic! creates music not just for dance floors, but to take listeners on a journey through space. Other worldly soundscapes, haunting melodies, and guttural alien language beautifully crafted together to create a truly out of this world experience. Ranging from heavy hitting dubstep anthems, to deep, ambient melodies, this duo does not fall short with musical inspiration. Although very diverse, their tunes always get across one point: Aliens. Expect nothing less from their live performance, taking their crowd on a voyage through space and time. Boasting two number 1 EP releases on Beatport, a full length album, and constant touring, these two aliens are abducting every individual that they come across and they don't plan to stop until the entire human race knows of Captain Panic!WHAT REALLY HAPPENED:
It is said that the powerful and immortal being, Captain PANIC, came to earth to rid humanity of corruptions, but upon further review, humanity itself was deemed beyond saving. To add insult to injury, the discovery of dubstep filled him with endless rage, destroying everything in his path. However, a heroic duo comprised of Andrew McKay and Michael Myers fought Captain PANIC with the power of heavy bass music, ridding the evil force from ever causing more harm. (TMN)
:::MANTIS Taylor Scott and Paul Ollinger, known as Mantis, are a relentless duo. Having begun their musical careers with metal & deathcore, the transition to heavy bass music was not so much a step down in intensity, but a slide into a world with spectacular tools to mix dense layers of music in new ways, and deploy it with force. Mantis was formed in early 2011 to test the boundaries of metal-influenced production, and plunge the result into a wash of haunting atmospheres. Mantis wants to provide “music to make you feel like you’re somewhere else, and you’ve never been more stoked to be there.”
With that target in sight, 2011 was a smashing first year; the momentum began in Atlanta, and overflowed with releases on labels such as Play Me, Heavy Artillery, BroTown Records, & Abducted Records. A standard was set with 2011's "All Worlds", their first EP, breaking the top 10 on Beatport's Dubstep releases, and held with 2012's "Futures" scoring #5 on Beatport's overall chart. The support of tastemakers such as Liquid Stranger, Downlink, Figure, Cyberoptics, Diesel, Genetix, Persist, & Sluggo, points to an accomplishment of musical influence on an international scale, and the potential for much more.
A history in Atlanta's metal scene, playing in acts such as WLTP and Attila, provides Mantis' cornerstone of fierce stage skills. Having become known across the USA for throwing down an aggressive live show with unmatched energy and only the heaviest bass music, Mantis' reputation stands as being one of the gnarliest new production teams in the scene.
With packed crowds at hand, and Beatport charts at their feet, only one goal remains- to raise the awareness of metal-influenced bass music... oh, and world domination.
