Scion A/V to Release EP Produced by 12th Planet

Scion A/V to Release EP Produced by 12th PlanetScion A/V announces the release of a new five-track EP from LA dubstep producer/DJ 12th Planet called Scion A/V Presents: The End Is Near. The release will be available as a free download at beginning on January 18. In support of the release, Scion A/V will present 12th Planet’s 28-city, North American tour to kick off on February 2 in Miami, Florida. A music video will soon follow.

Named one of bass music‚Äôs foremost purveyors in Billboard‚Äôs Year In Music issue, 12th Planet dominated 2011 with a sold-out, 50-date North American tour alongside Skrillex, released the “Who Are We?” EP on his influential dubstep label SMOG, which just celebrated their 5-year anniversary, and co-produced a track on Korn‚Äôs latest foray into dubstep. With his star rising internationally, 12th Planet was also dubbed “US dubstep godfather” by UK‚Äôs dance music bible Mixmag, as he‚Äôs emerged as an ambassador of the now fully established American dubstep movement.

“Scion A/V has been working in the dubstep genre for over 2 years, and has helped to bring it to the masses,” says Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotions for Scion. “We are proud to support 12th Planet’s cultural rise, as he not only represents the exuberance of youth dubstep culture, but exemplifies all the things that came before it and are moving ahead with it.”

12th Planet, born John Dadzie, is an electronic music veteran who spent seven years touring the world as drum-n-bass maestro Infiltrata. In 2005, inspired by the burgeoning dubstep sound developing in the UK, John decided to push his own interpretation. Since then, he has lent his signature crushing bass and resonating energy to remixes for MIA, John Legend, Travis Barker and more, worked on Korn’s track Way Too Far with production partner Flinch, and has collaborations coming out with Dizzee Rascal, among others.
