RDG and K Man are two of the most seasoned and influential veterans in the dubstep scene. Whether it be behind the decks or behind the studio monitors crafting their sound, both artists bring forth lots of energy and technical rhythms in their productions/dj sets. Each artist adds their own little touch to the sound they put forth. RDG brings very eerily spacious vibes to the table while K Man brings the unforgiving bass lines and deep/gritty synths.What these two put out in their productions really resonates with their listeners. I know that "The Commander" by RDG still gets me to this day when I hear it on a system. Same goes for K Man's most recent classic "Blink". These two combined are a deadly force of true dubstep sounds that will leave you begging for more!

Denmark’s RDG may not have predicted the impact he would make on the dubstep genre when he first launched into the productions back in 2009. Initially releasing on well-known imprints like Dubliminal, Boka and New World Audio early in his career, the Copenhagen-based music producer launched his take on a digital label in early 2012. Surfase Records, unlike many other young labels, has proven itself to be a reliable staple for quality bass music - for both RDG and other producers.
While RDG’s continued to produce and release his quality bass driven music, his Surfase imprint has also thrived with a number of releases from both new and established artists, such as K Man. Ruben announced that he would venture into other formats with the early 2014 appearance of Circle Vision - a vinyl-only label to accompany his efforts with the digital based Surfase.

London’s K Man (The Phantom) has been a front runner in the dubstep scene for many years now. Having released on Mala’s DEEP MEDI imprint proves already he is an artist not to be overlooked. With classics such as “Propane”, “Electro Magnetic Destroyer” and “Blink” all having been released on DEEP MEDI. It shows he is a true power house and is not stopping anytime soon. Now releasing tunes on RDG’s Surfase Digital / Circle Vision, K Man proves his sound really fits anywhere he goes. He is able to adapt to the new sounds being pushed and puts his own twist on it. That’s something not many artist can do nowadays.
