Our NYC production & biz partners


For over a decade Emch has been the producer, selector, musician and label head behind Subatomic Sound System. Founded at the turn of the millennium, NYC’s Subatomic Sound System has built a reputation worldwide for explosive shows, genre bending production, and breaking down barriers with their unique adaptation of 1970’s Jamaican sound system culture and dub reggae studio techniques to all types of bass heavy music genres, current technologies, and live performances.  Emch has become a voice for the culture on both the airwaves and the web, hosting Subatomic Sound Radio on and KEXP's Mo-Glo broadcast on Radio New York, 91.5fm.  In the past year, Subatomic Sound System has performed throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, both as a live act and as a DJ.

As a specialty record label, Subatomic Sound has been pushing the envelope of dub and international bass culture, releasing limited edition vinyl with Vienna's Dubblestandart featuring Grammy winning, dub reggae legend Lee Scratch Perry's first dubstep tracks, eclectic collaborations with icons like David Lynch, Prince Far-i, & Ari Up of the Slits, as well as new school torchbearers like Jahdan Blakkamoore, a host of NYC producers, and of course Subatomic Sound System.
