Roommate returns to the Bay Area for a great night of dub and rootstep vibes. Performing with an array of dub sirens and effects, he will debut a lot of new material including new originals and remixes with vocalist like Sizzla, Kali Green, Chezidek, Macka B, Lutan Fyah, Afrikan Simba & Daman.
Originally from San Francisco, Roommate (Justin McCauley) has a musical career that can be described as prolific and ever changing. His tireless efforts in both production and DJ'ing have currently brought him to the forefront of the worldwide bass music community. With over a decade of solid DJ'ing and countless original production releases, you can be sure Roommate has secured his title on an international scale.
Beginning his musical quest with guitar lessons at the age of 11, Roommate has since developed his craft to an undeniable style and fashion by integrating both organic and electronic sounds. After self releasing his first solo album (Dubfunk vol1) in 2003, he quickly gained musical notoriety in the U.S. counter culture. When dubstep first hit the U.S. streets, Roommate was quick to find a love and understanding for the music and began production. Joining forces with L.A. based artist and long time friend No Thing, the two formed another key part of dubstep history; Babylon System. Roommate / Babylon System contributed many of the early U.S. dubstep releases such as "50 Blocks Away"," Examination of Time", and "Loaded" to name a few. After a slew of quality releases, Roommate was sky rocketed into the international limelight. Years of global touring followed with undying passion and intensity at every show.
Co-founding the rip roaring label Hollow Point Recordings with friend and artist SPL was another huge step for Roommate. Gaining confidence from consistent releases and great sales, Roommate used Hollow Point to push the boundaries of sound and express his musical tastes. Following Hollow Point, Roommate branched out to create two new musical imprints. King Dubbist and Avocaudio are Roommate's latest forward thinking incarnations. Focusing on huge vibes and stellar production, these labels span from Dubstep to Trip-hop to Reggae. Fusing and encompassing Roommate's broad and compelling love for musical freshness.
Roommate still tours avidly all over the world and spreading his custom art everywhere he goes. He is focusing on releasing two full length Dubstep/Reggae and Trip hop albums in the near future. His labels and projects will continue to grow and influence the music and art communities for years to come. Roommate's live show never disappoints and always reflects his energy and skill. Get inspired by a true rising artist and check out his other projects: Babylon System (with No Thing), OSC (with Antiserum), and Krttyr (with E Pill).
