12th Planet Launches North American Tour

12th Planet Launches North American TourThis fall, Los Angeles dubstep producer 12th Planet kicks off 53 dates across North America, joining Skrillex’s The Mothership Tour, plus headlining San Bernardino’s Nocturnal Wonderland, Los Angeles’s Hard Haunted Mansion and Milwaukee’s Turner Hall Ballroom. Also on the bill for the three-month tour – which will see only 4,000-plus capacity venues – is live-production outfit Two Fresh, DC Moombahton practitioners Nadastrom, and UK rap/grime troupe Foreign Beggars showcasing their first-ever North American performances. Highlights set to include two massive nights at Chicago’s Congress Theater with Dada Life and other guests as well as a Halloween gathering in Bloomfield, Colorado with an expected turnout of 7,000 fans where the entire posse will be joined by Skream & Benga and Nero (live).

12th Planet, a.k.a. John Dadzie, originally made his name as a drum-n-bass producer using the moniker Infiltrata before he changed his sound and his name to bring the up and coming sound of dubstep to the world. Named one of URB’s Next 100 in 2009, 12th Planet has conquered the Los Angeles scene, toured globally, and played at top music festivals like Coachella, SXSW, Together As One, Ultra Music Festival and Electric Zoo. Last year saw the premiere of his music video for Reasons”on MTV and the release of his remix of Little Jinder’s Youth Blood on the Mad Decent “Blow Your Head” dubstep compilation presented by Diplo. 12th Planet’s prolific productions includes 12 EPs, with two highly anticipated EPs on his the horizon this fall (on his own label SMOG) and winter (on Scion A/V), as well as remixes for Rusko, MSTRKRFT, M.I.A. and more.
