(Heavy Pressure, Embassy, TUBA)
Boston based dubstep artist Moldy is notorious for mind-bending DJ sets and productions that stay true to the “deep and exploratory drive of the early days” (Mixmag, 12/12/2011). A “veteran of American dubstep” (flavorwire.com, 4/19/10) and “New York City dubstep pioneer” (thekronicle.com, 3/3/10), Moldy has been “quietly leading the charge of US dubstep producers since day one” (dubwarnyc.com, 5/29/10).

Baptized in 2008 at London’s DMZ, the heart of the UK underground music scene, IMMvc (Max Von Cannon) was introduced to and inspired by the bass driven genre popularly known today as “dubstep”. After leaving London he remained in the shadows as an unknown bedroom DJ until earning his recognition when he won Boston’s Together Festival DJ mix competition in 2011. This past year has been a breakout year for the 22-year-old Boston DJ. Since Togetherfest 2011, IMMvc’s involvement in the Boston local underground music scene has grown and he remains passionate and devoted to his art of mixing bass music.
