There is little personal information known about the American duo known as PURGE. The uniquely branded duo exploded onto the scene in September of 2016 and quickly gained the respect for exhibiting technical sounds and a haunting dark bass feeling. Rather then using masks or helmets, they have used a glitch-like effect to hide their faces across media platforms to emphasize the attention they want to bring to their music and segregate them from other faceless and anonymous artists. The goal for PURGE aims to take a rebellious stance on electronic music. The producers see garner influences from genre-benders like Justice and Flume for their creative attitude, which they aim to implement in their own concept.
Their debut EP, “Feel Your Love”, was released in late September of 2016 via Skrillex’s imprint and media platform, Nest HQ. Receiving praise and support from Owsla, media outlets, and DJs alike, the EP evoked a haunting initiation to PURGE’s genre-bending design being labeled as “dark bass”.
