UNDERGROUND DRUMZ WILL NEVER DIE!
THE UNOFFICIAL MAYOR OF SAN DIEGO
BASS BLASTIN' STUDIO GANGSTER
Savage Land LABEL OWNER & CREATOR OF "I LIKE IT DIRTY"...
Havok Mega is an American Drum & Bass DJ and producer originating from the West Coast. He first began mixing records while living in Los Angeles in 1998 and moved to San Diego that same year. Having spent most of his early years of junglism in LA from 1996 to 1998, the moment he knew he was hooked was after attending a Wreckigintion event at the Masterdome, hosted by Deacon. Deacon proved to be a strong influence for Havok but that wasn’t all Los Angeles had to offer. DJ Machete of the Junglist Platoon was very active at that time and was another artist that Havok gained inspiration from. Finally, Havok’s primary influence was R.A.W. who was a resident at “Magic Wednesday’s” where Havok would go to study each week at Club World in Hollywood.
Another resident at that club was San Diego’s infamous DJ Uncut who became Havok’s mentor and was the beginning of the chain reaction that sparked Havok’s career in the West Coast Drum and Bass scene. After moving to San Diego, Havok was asked to join the Pinwheel Carter and teamed up with DJ Uncut, Blend & Rehab and a series of underground events began popping up all over the city. After a decade of event production he shifted gears to focus on producing the Beatkillerz debut EP, “Sheep Killerzzz” with long time cohort Catfish and beat producer Ethyx.
Havok is currently operating the Savage Land Media recording label and released over 25 tracks in 2020. He has typically been seen performing while wearing a gas mask and has stated that he wishes to keep his personal life separate from his music career. No name, date of birth or any other identifying information has been released from the artist. He was the first DJ sponsored by LA’s Drumz Clothing and his “I Like It Dirty” event series was the first to showcase the Dubstep genre in San Diego.
One thing that is certain is that he is just getting started and we can expect many more releases and even event productions in the years to come.
