From gracing the decks at one of BC’s biggest music festivals to hyping crowds in the party-central of Miami, Konka has earned himself a strong reputation in the bass music scene as a taste-making producer with a distinct ear for future sounds.
Carrying forward his musical influences from his years as a drummer and performer in a blues-metal band, Konka made a natural progression into dance music after the discovery of drum & bass and dubstep. Ever since, his productions have set the bar high among his peers. Earning himself residencies at Vancouver’s top bass music nights including Subculture Saturdays, Konka is frequently spotted flaunting his productions while supporting some of the biggest names in bass, including G Jones, Koan Sound, Flux Pavillion & Quix.
Influenced by a range of artists like Alix Perez, EPROM, G Jones, Ivy Lab, My Nu Leng, Chris Lorenzo, Noisia, X&G and Josh Pan to name a few, Konka is a natural at adapting his style while remaining a champion of his own sound. Whatever he’s dropping, you can be sure to walk away with a new definition of the term “bass music” as he leaves you both pleasantly puzzled and wide awake. He does this not only through his selection, but tremendous stage presence too. Konka matches his high-energy sets with intense vigor and attitude on stage as he flawlessly freestyles across the world of bass, constantly heightening the engagement in the room and challenging photographers to snap a still moment!
Moving forward in 2018, Konka is ready to showcase his latest EP on Greazus’s Aufect Records while wrapping up releases on additional labels. Committed to staying true to his brand and always pushing musical boundaries, he is ready to flex his unique style and infectious energy to bass lovers everywhere.
