PLAY ME Bass Monster Tour
Play Me Records and Beatport’s BASS MONSTER TOUR 2011!!!
There’s no mistaking that Play Me Records has quickly risen to the top of the dubstep and bass music mountain. From humble beginnings in the LA home of DJ Reid Speed, its become a world class juggernaut of a record label with 6 #1 hits, 30 releases hitting in the top 10, over 60 artists, and over 50 releases in just two years of existence. 2010 was a banner year for the brand which ended with Play Me being voted Dubstep Label Of the Year by leading online DJ retailer Beatport. 2011 has seen the rise continue with nearly every of this year’s releases charting in the top #10, FS hitting #1 with both sides of “Yup” / “Touch of Klass”, and Terravita smashing out a #1 drum & bass remix of the already massive anthem “Sexy Party”. Beatport is now partnering with Play Me for their upcoming Bass Monster Tour, hitting cities around the US and Canada this summer into fall.
Play Me is known for its ear-to-the-ground breaking of new artists such as Bare, Figure, Dillon Francis, J. Rabbit & Tremourz, Cyberoptics, and raising the bar for musicality amongst bass music labels. They continually push the sound forward and seek new talent in ways others choose not to, with clearly positive results. Their “New Blood of Dubstep” Compilation was an instant hit for bringing to light a young and hungry crop of talented producers from around the world, and is now in production of Volume 2. Their DJs are booked all around the world every week, the crew host an online radio show on Filth.FM each Sunday with worldwide guests and tons of dubs, and their music is now an integral part of a global Bass community. Play Me’s mission is to continue to reach further out and higher up to bring the joy of bass to everyone.
Reid Speed has been a dance floor destroyer for over a decade, and is second to none when it comes to heavy bass music rinse outs of all genres. Standing around 5’3, this little lady knows how to work the decks like a mastermind and drop bass saturated tunes to all your bass loving ears. She currently runs Play Me Records and Play Me Too, the United States’ leading dubstep, drumstep and bass-of-all-genres labels while holding down a full production and tour schedule. As one of the first US DJs to champion speed garage & 2 step (which have become today’s fidget house and dubstep), her new label’s quick rise to the top of the dance charts reflects her continually forward thinking musical evolution. Being one of the biggest players in the dubstep scene of America, Reid Speed is also one of the top female djs that we have around timelessly murdering the decks, working the crowd, and getting everybody in the club dancing.
With a recent visit to the Twin Cities for Bassgasm 3 and over 30 different djs, Reid came out on top with the hands down best set of the night. For the whole 90 minutes, Reid stole the spotlight with new Play me tracks, a mix up of genres, and her fluent mixing skills. She kept everyone dancing and screaming for more bass as her set finished up.
Coming back to raid the Twin Cities with new bass heavy tunes and jaw dropping skills Reid’s Bass Monster tour is sure not to be missed. With both her and her label’s tunes and mixes getting dropped around the world every day, this girl’s musical outreach and undeniable popularity will only continue to expand and keep blowing the minds of everyone she encounters.
FS is an American producer, composer, DJ and musician based out of Brooklyn, New York. He continues his bass music odyssey with a string of chart topping dubstep hits, including Both ‘Yup’ & ‘Touch O Klass’ hitting #1 on Beatport’s Top 100 Dubstep chart, and ‘Shake Dat Ass’ hitting #4.
True to his signature sound, FS delivers electro-glitch-ridden and intricately woven sound spheres, loaded with distinct, bass-driven production. He gained critical acclaim in the EDM scene with his ground breaking band Ming + FS, releasing the seminal album Hell’s Kitchen on Om Records. Soon after he founded record label and creative agency, Patriarch Recordings, producing indie artists and scoring music for movie trailers, TV and film.
A young producer taking the Dubstep world by storm; at age 19, Alex Epps aka Cyberoptics first made his big smash into the scene with his release “Geisha” on PLAY ME Records. Released in May of 2010, Geisha climbed to number 1 on Beatport.com and held its place in the top 5 for over a month, battling producers such as Borgore and Doctor P.
Hailing from Memphis TN, Cyberoptics is greatly influenced by the dirty south but also the wide varieties of electronic music as well. With a unique style of different themes, deep sludge bass and a heavy sub, it’s almost impossible not to move your body to his alien sounding bass tones!

Jonathan Diaz aka Sogma and Fletcher Schottland aka Schoty, two powerhouses in the Hard Dance Scene, have joined forces to create S-Factor. As solo artists, they have rocked the United States with their unique blend of Hard Dance Music. When Sogma and Schoty began producing and performing together in 2010, it became clear that their on-stage chemistry was something special. So the decision was made to produce and perform together from that point on as S-Factor. Their debut release “PLAY” hit the top of the international charts. The combination of their different styles creates a unique sound and performance that they are ready to share with the world.
