Denver is the fourth biggest market on Earth for
dubstep, and Ishe is Denver’s dubstep don.
No other Mile High clubber slays for both
Westword “Best P romoter” Sub.mission and “Best
Monthly Party” Whomp Truck. No other Coloradan
is as animated at the helm, either. Ishe, to the
faces he’s melted (after a Dr. Seuss character),
boasts a decade an d a half behi d the decks, and
hi s serious experience shows. Anyone involved
with Colorado’s EDM scene has witnessed hi s
wicked mixing and track select ion firsthand, as
he’s perpetually booked at both underground
and massive events on a weekly basi s. Beta,
the number one club in North America, recently
made him a Bassic Fridays resident. The biggest
elec tronica fest ivals on th e circuit, from Electric
Daisy Carnival to Skylab, b eat Beta to the punch
in that department, though. Kansas City, Lincoln,
Detroit, Las Vegas an d Salt Lake are fans, thanks
to a slew of out-of-stat e outings an d a recent slot
on the Global Dub Festival lineup alongside the
likes of Freq Nasty, Mimosa, and Benga. Openi ng
slots for N-Typ e, Hatcha, and Cotti have further
showcase d this veteran’s flexibility and depth
behi nd the decks.
Releases on Velcro City Records, Snatchy Trax,
an d L.A.-base d powerhouse Play Me Records
regularly crack Beatport’s dubstep c harts, with the
2011 Dirt Monkey collab “Flaunt It” peaking at #15.
With a full length-album with Dirt Monkey set for
release in March 2012 for Play Me, and a bagful of
originals and remixes set to drop over the coming
year, Denver’s dubstep don i s certainly on a roll.
Rumblejunkie aka Wesley Waldo, was born and raised in Bible Belt Buckle, Arkansas. With a Bluegrass pickin' father, Wes picked up the guitar and started playing at 12. Blugrass never seeming to be an option, Wes was inspired more by his mothers Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd albums along with 80's pop/rock which lead to grunge and industrial music of the early 90s, he found electronic sounds to be the most inticing and persued more electronica. Fiddling with the new production technology of the time, Wes began producing "electronic" music and soon went to the Recording Workshop to become a certified sound engineer. The sounds he was producing ultimatly lead to finding that the genre best suited for him at the time was called Jungle and later Drum and Bass. Wes knew then which direction he was going, quit the short lived band he started with high school mates, bought turntables, and started djing hard Drum'n'Bass in '98 under alias Dj Drive. Playing various parties locally, the scene in Arkansas was a dead end. Finally, after way too many years in the staleness of Arkansas, Wes decided to move to Denver in 2006. Linking up with fellow D'n'B djs, Wes played several shows under Dj Drive, but realized production was much more satisfying. At that time Sub.Mission was in the works and his closer friends started playing Dubstep. Wes decided to try a hand at making Dubstep, presented it to his friends, and was encouraged not to stop. Thus the resulting in the alias, Rumblejunkie. After sifting through all the Dubstep out there and hearing Dubstep on a 30,000watt system at Burning Man '07, Wes was convinced that Dubstep was the future and found the sounds he was looking for in the genre and began djing it. Soon after, joined his mates in Sub.Mission, an all Dubstep promotion company based in Denver. Wes has since been booked in Chicago, Santa Fe, all around Colorado, and even in Arkansas, with many more cities to come. He spends as much time as possible in the studio and has releases on the labels: Sub.Mission, Dirty Circuit Records, Dubfront, Filthy, Adversion, and now Tuff Luv and Section 8. The first song ever released under the Rumblejunkie alias, "Dope Angel", made it onto MTVeurope in the form of an MTV "bump", and the B-side was a remix by Antiserum. Tunes such as "Training" and the weed anthem "Everyday" have been well recieved in the Dubstep community. His style is edgy and darker, yet groovy with huge sub and grungy/grindy basslines with an occasional deeper track often sprinkled with pop culture samples and references.
