Tanner Chung, better known as Dack Janiels, discovered bass music after listening to excessive amounts of gangster rap as a rebellious youth. He set out to craft his own blend of crushing bass and gangster vibes, and eventually became co-owner/founder of the 40oz Cult group of young pro skaters and DJs that produce music, host parties and also make clothing.
The California-based producer has already grabbed the attention of other major influential bass DJs such as Excision, NGHTMRE, Protohype, Figure, Funtcase, Trollphase, Modestep and Must Die. Dack Janiels is setting a path to wreak havoc, and after his latest release, “Planet Terror,” he’s back in action with “Retro Riddim Rampage.”
The wild track, released on Buygore’s label Fresh Blood, kicks off with a slow introduction, but then goes into high-gear with an old-school drum step vibe that merges an electro-feel, giving listeners an energetic rise to the imminent bass drop. The power and drive behind “Retro Riddim Rampage” is a homage to Dack Janiels’ incredible ability to experiment with the evolving musical styles in the electric dance music scene. Highlighting his ability to craft versatile and ornate sonic designs, Dack Janiels is a name to keep on your radar as he continues to progress and grow as one of the most promising artists in the bass music community.
