For over a decade Emch has been the producer, selector, musician and label head behind Subatomic Sound System. Founded at the turn of the millennium, NYC’s Subatomic Sound System has built a reputation worldwide for explosive shows, genre bending production, and breaking down barriers with their unique adaptation of 1970’s Jamaican sound system culture and dub reggae studio techniques to all types of bass heavy electronic music genres, current technologies, and live performances. A forerunner of laptop DJing, Emch won an upset victory at Red Bull’s NYC Vinyl Lab competition in 2002 and hasn’t looked back, typically DJing with multiple apps at once, plus an analog fx unit in one hand and a mic in the other. Emch has also been host of Subatomic Sound Radio airing for years on BrooklynRadio.net and KEXP’s Mo-Glo broadcast on Radio New York, 91.5fm.
Subatomic Sound System has toured throughout N. America, Europe, and Asia. In 2008, Emch was recruited by Vienna’s Dubblestandart band to play guitar on tour worldwide with Grammy winning reggae legend Lee Scratch Perry, playing for capacity crowd shows from New York’s Central Park to Europe largest reggae festival, One Love in Poland.
As the Subatomic Sound record label head, Emch has produced and released dub reggae innovator Lee Scratch Perry’s first dubstep tracks plus eclectic collaborations with icons like filmmaker David Lynch, Prince Far-i, & UK punk pioneer Ari Up of the Slits as well as new school torchbearers like Anthony B, Elephant Man, Jahdan Blakkamoore, Dubblestandart, & his own group Subatomic Sound System.
