Born in Las Vegas and currently residing in Southern California, Aweminus (pronounced ominous) has manifested into one of bass music’s most promising emerging artists. Since late 2012, his unique take on dubstep and drum and bass has garnered the support of artists like Excision, 12th Planet, Funtcase, Getter, Trollphace, jPhelpz, Bukez Finezt, Protohype and more.
Aweminus first became known within the dubstep community after promotional clips of songs like “Viper” and “The Beast” began circulating on Youtube in early 2012. As a 16 year old, he was named a winner of Getter’s Fallout Remix Competition and went on to win a spot on the Remix EP which was released on Firepower Records. Aweminus went on to release three EP’s before the end of 2014; the “Shift” EP with Subject 31 through Prime Audio, the “Hard Ticket” EP on Abducted Records, and “Chuckie” on Bass Face Audio.
2014 brought about the release of his hit “GBUS” EP on The Dub Rebellion’s label Octane Audio. Excision’s Shambhala 2014 Mix Compilation (Rottun) was released on the very same day and featured the VIP of Aweminus’s classic “IJDGAF”, which Excision had been rinsing throughout his tour and festival sets. Aweminus had two tracks “Syrup” and his remix of “Nah Nah” by Bommer and Crowell featured in Duploc’s compilation “Recommend Volume #4” that was released on Bassclash Records in December 2014. 2014 also saw the release of Bommer and Aweminus’s collaboration “Squirm” through Prime Audio on Bommer’s “Curses” EP.
2015 has been a very solid year so far for Aweminus. Within the first three weeks of January, two new collaborations and a remix had been released on beatport; “Cold Blooded” with Definitive (Prime Audio), “Four Horsemen” with Phiso, Acting Damage, and Ripple (Firepower Records), and Aweminus’s remix of “Wolf Dance” by Acting Damage (Prime Audio). In the Spring, Aweminus was named an official member of the Savage Society Records crew and a resident DJ at Escence Audio. Aweminus will be performing in Paris in April as support for Excision’s France Tour and has his sights set on a tour later this year.
