The entity known as ASHTROBOT (sounded out just ash-tro-bot) has a fine-tuned skill for maximizing delayed gratification within the scope of his productions. He isn’t scared to go all-out-grimey but his own kingdom is Purple and there he lounges on a throne of bass, rhythm and melodies. This 21-year-old next level space creature didn’t come to his present status instantaneously – it’s been a road of musical diversity
Real name Ash Riser was born and raised in Redondo Beach. In the 4th grade he received a beginner’s set of Gemini belt-driven turntables and a seed was planted that would not flower until after a run with his high school rock band. Before ever moving into the realm of dubstep or house he was singing, playing guitar,writing,
and performing live with his band Pistol Pistol regularly.
Around December 2009 and January 2010 Ash started really focusing on his independent productions skills after his long-time band broke apart. He was picked up by the RIZO crew in los angeles as their first redisent bass music producer/dj at 20, and played his first 600+ event on his 21st birthday. Summer of Bass. Ash founded D.R.E.A.M. (Dubstep Rules Everyting Around Me) Brigade in December 2009 as an event but after seeing how far he wanted to push it the idea changed into that of an underground independent label
With new releases planned periodically over the next year and appearances at a multitude of different events, shows, and parties the BOT is in a position to capitalize on his young age and extreme talent. You WILL see him at a show if you’re into dubstep in the LA area, and you will hear his tracks being played
Watch out now! L.A.’s baddest new badman is vibing up the building.
