Groves (Rumpshakers / Exit / Unchained / Astrophonica soundcloud.com/slatergroves
Hailing from Toronto, Canada and known by his last name, Slater Groves has already received an overwhelming amount of support from across the pond by the likes of dBridge, Fracture, Skeptical, and Fixate.
Working behind different monikers over time, Slater has been producing and DJing for the past 10 years, and was a drummer since the age of 8, growing up playing in punk and metal bands. He was initially influenced by the weighty dubstep of his teens: DMZ, Skream and Benga, and Goth-Trad; to name a few. If he didn't get to see them at the raves in Canada--which were few and far between for international headliners--he was glued to the dubstep radio shows broadcast online throughout his school years. Listening daily, he was addicted to the cheeky UK music and culture that would later pave the way for his own sound; a mix of halftime drum and bass with infectious basslines and rowdy wobbles that are seldom found west of the Atlantic.
Coming from a deep knowledge of audio theory, Groves' music showcases the power that raw-sounding music can have without all of the bells and whistles.
When he isn't making music or DJing, Slater works at a Toronto recording studio by day as an Audio Engineer, recording and mixing sound design for various worldwide brand ads, as well as a number of TV shows, films, and local musicians. By night, Groves has been quietly making a name for himself in the Toronto scene, often playing with members of his Vortex and Rumpshakers crews at warehouse events and radio shows around the city.
With an EP from Exit Records around the corner, and a few more forthcoming releases on labels from the UK, Portugal, and North America, 2018 is shaping up to be a big year to watch out for this rising talent.
