DBA

Born in Christchurch, New Zealand in July of 1973, the one called KSM has become one of the distinct DJs of the Auckland drum n bass scene. With over twelve years of DJing under his belt, KSM is known throughout Australasia for pushing the boundaries and taking it to the next level. Launching his musical career as House/Techno DJ Elevate over a decade ago, KSM tired of the lack of progression in the House scene after five years, and ultimately turned his sights on drum n bass, with a name change to KSM. With influences such as Ed Rush and Optical, Evol Intent and Spor, KSM classes himself as a full-spectrum drum n bass DJ, not just the hard-as-nails dark man hes been perceived to be. A shift across the ditch to Sydney Australia in 2000 saw the birth of the DBA (Drum n Bass Addicts) collective, which consisted of Kiwis KSM, Machinist, Pixie, Styles and Rohan. After three successful years of DBA parties, including Bass Invaders, Outbreak and Holocaust and hosting a successful radio show on Rhythm FM, KSM returned home to the Land of the Long White Cloud to focus further on promoting and producing. He has founded the DBA website devoted totally to drum n bass. 2007 will see http://www.drumnbassaddicts.co.nz continuing to focus on getting local drum n bass material exposed and building a growing network between DJ's and Producers in New Zealand and the rest of the world. KSM has played at Limewax, Tech Itch, Earthdance 2000-2003, Slipp In, Blueprint, Outbreak, Fractile, We Want Bass, Warfare on the Crossfade, Rumble in the Jungle, Holocaust, Bass Invaders, Sunday Subsessions, Path to Darkness feat Tech Itch.
