Representing Los Angeles, California, BARE aka Sean Rodela has become one of the most talked about new producers making waves on the worldwide dubstep circuit. The BARE sound is a product of deep roots in west coast hip-hop (as part of the Vital Mindz collective) and aggressive drum ‘n’ bass (as Reborn) – these influences, combined with crisp drum programming and mind altering basslines, spawn face melting dubstep anthems that almost rewind themselves. February saw BARE’s first vinyl release, the ragga-influenced dancefloor smasher ‘Culture’, on Terminal Dusk Recordings. Alongside the massive ‘Talk Too Loud’ on the flip, the release was charted by DJ’s over the world (via Chemical Records), and put BARE on the radar alongside other members of the already incendiary LA dub community.
In April THE GROUPIE LOVE LIFE EP was released on Reid Speed’s Play Me Records, and the A-side ‘Life’ instantly secured a coveted spot in the Beatport dubstep top 10 – an amazing accomplishment for a fresh producer. In the weeks to follow, ‘Life’ peaked at number four on the charts, and would continue to dominate the top ten for close to a month – the B-side ‘Groupie Love’ was never far behind. The wheels were in motion, and around the same time BARE’s tracks caught the attention of drum and bass legend Dieselboy, resulting in a massive all A-side LP being secured for the third release on SubHuman Recordings (Human’s new dubstep offshoot) later this year. More original tracks and remixes are currently confirmed for Hollow Point Rec, Buygore, Licked Beats (UK), Trillbass, Play Me, TLD and Ultragore Recordings.
BARE lives and breathes music, his studio output is staggering to even the most seasoned producers. His tunes make regular appearances in the sets of Dieselboy, Excision, Datsik, Trillbass, Downlink, Mark Instinct, and Reid Speed. Studio collaborations with Symbl, NumberNin6, 6Blocc, J Messinian, and Mark Instinct are already in the works, with many more planned for the future as time allows. As a DJ, BARE is quickly building a reputation as a tough act to follow – his sets (largely comprised of his own material) are a nonstop low end assault, fluidly mixed collections of banger after banger that reduce dancefloors to smoldering ash. BARE was recently recruited to Circle Management’s roster (alongside Datsik, Boregore, and Funtcase, to name a few) and his performance schedule is already filling up fast. It’s fair to say BARE has been on a high speed elevator to the big leagues since day one, and shows no sign of slowing down.
