“Far Beyond Bass is the result of months and months of work from the minds of some of the best and personal favorite producers in the electronic music scene today. Most of them, I’ve always been a fan of,” says Zardonic of the album. “I still remember back in 2004 when Counterstrike, Black Sun Empire, Eye-D (The Outside Agency), State Of Mind, Delta 9 and all of them were like metal gods to a metalhead like me. I was barely starting to produce my first electronic beats, still getting out of the black metal mindset, and I saw them all playing the big shows in Europe with the shining eyes of a kid idolizing them. Now I’m working with them, sharing the decks with them, and swapping remixes and collaborations. So this album is pretty much a fucking dream come true. From the bottom of my heart, to all producers, THANK YOU for the faith you’ve put in me. And to all the public, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. This is a gift from a true fan, to the true fans! LONG LIVE BASS METAL!”
It’s hard to think of successful, hard-edged, Latin-American DJs without thinking Federico Agreda Alvarez, best known as Zardonic. The Bass titan has released original tracks with three time Grammy award winner Skrillex’s OWSLA label and America’s top Drum & Bass DJ Dieselboy’s Human Imprint label; toured the entire world with a busy event schedule from his hometown Barquisimeto to Tokyo; gained worldwide air plays on BBC Radio 1; featured his music in live DJ sets by Knife Party, Bassnectar, Skream, Benga, Andy C, John B and the likes; shared the stage with créme de la créme DJs like The Outside Agency, Audio, Calvertron, Dylan, DJ Hidden as well as world renowned characters like Zombie Boy (famous for his cameo in the video ‘Born This Way‘ by Lady Gaga), The Mexican Vampire Woman (Guinness World Record of the woman with the most body changes) and metal titans Dimmu Borgir; and that’s just for starters.
Born and raised in Venezuela, Zardonic encompasses everything from Glitch Hop and Electro to Drum & Bass and Hardcore, all while wearing a frighteningly enigmatic mask that has become his personal brand and signature.
With an extensive discography going back from 2004 till the present, Zardonic has released several singles and remixes for majors like Nine Inch Nails and Beyoncé. His 2012 LP debut Vulgar Display Of Bass charted as the #1 Drum & Bass release on Beatport, getting more than a million plays for his track ‘Bring Back The Glory ‘ in YouTube, and the participation of 45 countries in the official video for ‘Revolution‘.
His most recent album, Far Beyond Bass – The Vulgar Remixes, released on grammy nominee AK1200’s label Big Riddim Recordings, features 12 remixes of the tracks contained in the original Vulgar Display Of Bass album, all crafted by top artists like Black Sun Empire, State Of Mind, Counterstrike, Neonlight, Delta 9, and many more!
