Dubstep, SYSTEM / Innamind Recordings / Subtle Recordings / ZamZam / Well Rounded Records (NZ)
As far as bass-heavy music goes, you can’t look past New Zealand’s own Headland. The producer and DJ has made waves across the world playing at the mecca of bass music festivals, Outlook in Croatia, closing out the Moat stage 2019, as well as Basscoast in Canada, playing with Alix Perez, V.I.V.E.K and Fixate across New Zealand, Electric Ave Festival in Christchurch and shows in Europe and America as well as spots on Rinse FM and Subtle FM. His style is bass music with a unique twist, offering up a techy, sci-fi flavour unlike any other.
Among his strong list of accolades is having his music released on iconic labels such as SYSTEM, Innamind Recordings, ZamZam Sounds & 1985. Back home in Christchurch, New Zealand he also has close ties with well-known sound systems, Eyesdown Sound and Subtle Sound System.
His connections in bass music run deep, collaborating with massive names such as Alix Perez and releasing on his label 1985. It’s safe to say Headland has a large part to play in the resurgence and redefinition of Dubstep and beyond.
