DragonMan began his journey into the depths of electronic music right about the turn of the century as a bedroom dj spinning trance, breaks, and drum’n’bass on a Numark BattlePack and a stack of vinyl from the now extinct Tech*Sun Records in Arlington TX. After a few years of practice, collecting vinyl, and playing house parties for friends, he started looking for venues that would be interested in his sound, with little luck… The one place that did respond was The Velvet Curtain, a local swingers establishment, and that was where he played his first public gig, spinning late 90’s era trance for a disco era crowd…
After realizing the bubble had burst on the trance scene, DragonMan packed up his turntables and vinyl for a few years, waiting for a more fitting and intriguing sound. In 2005, he stumbled across the Grime compilations on Rephlex Records, featuring MarkONE, Plastician, Slaughter Mob, DMZ, Kode9, and Loefah. He was immediately hooked and those albums lead him to DUBSTEP… Tunes, such as Goat Stare, Midnight Request Line, and The Knowledge never left the tables, much to the dismay of friends, colleagues, and neighbors… Once again, he hit the streets and the web looking for others who knew of this elusively fresh new sound. Others were found, in Dallas, Houston, and Austin. In Dallas, DragonMan got involved with a local garage-turned-dubstep crew via Keith P, who booked him at his first dubstep gig in the summer of 06 at Club One in Deep Ellum. He was also the first dubstep artist on the UK based Garage internet radio station, Rampage Radio, the only US dj on Belgium’s Reload Radio, and one of the few Americans to have been on UK’s top all-dubstep stations, SUBFM. By early 2007, DragonMan was being booked around DFW, and at Houston’s original dubstep event, Gritsy. By spring of that year, he had met Black and Capaz, with whom he formed dmP(DragonMan Productions) and began their first monthly residency, an event called RESONANCE at Absinthe Lounge in Dallas.
As dubstep started to spread across the metroplex, more gigs at more venues came in, more artists were making tunes, and more dj’s were catching on to the newest style of EDM. This was when the Dub Commission came into existence. Since then, the lineup may have changed but the mission at hand has not. DragonMan has continued to bring a new level to a sound that has captivated so many, so quickly. Holding numerous weekly and monthly residencies, booking various guest spots around town, and travelling across the country keep him and the crew extremely busy, which simply means MORE oppurtunity to catch him destroying dancefloors near you! Don’t miss your chance to hear the musical stylings of one of DFW’s ORIGINAL DUBSTEP SELEKTAHs!!!
