A native of Portland, ME and seasoned inhabitant of Boston, MA and New York, NY, the “New England sub assassin” and “New York City dubstep pioneer” (thekronicle.com, 3/3/10) is widely known for his mind-bending DJ sets and deep, dark, thoughtful bass music productions. A “veteran of American dubstep” (flavorwire.com, 4/19/10), Moldy has been “quietly leading the charge of US dubstep producers since day one” (dubwarnyc.com, 5/29/10), with releases on ‘Earwax, Embassy, Foreign Familiar and his own imprint Heavy Pressure Recordings as well as countless dubplates garnering the support of tastemakers including Joe Nice of Dub War NYC and Gourmet Beats Radio, Mary Anne Hobbs of BBC Radio 1 and Incyde of Hotflush Recordings.
Moldy founded Heavy Pressure Recordings in 2006. His latest release on the label, Pegasus, a dubstep/rap hybrid featuring MC Dynamo-P, is praised by Big Up Magazine as “bass music at it’s finest, in all its restrained, bleak glory,” and is available now via all major digital outlets.
