Genesis P-Orridge has alot to answer for...

Where to begin? A veteran bass slinger of over a decade, Kuma has brought sounds across the dub-based spectrum to ear and asses from Sapporo to San Francisco.

Recognised by the likes of BBC Radio 1's The Breezeblock and their infamous "Dubstep Warz" show for his excursions into the dubstep realm and abilty to turn heads both on the dancefloor and in the sound-art field, his is not your average sound.

Owner/founder of the Konspiracy Group, a music group, booking agency and p.r. hub for future music of all kinds, he's a leader in the North American bass music field, helping deliver dubstep and jungle basslines to waistlines across North America.

A former host and producer with CBC Radio and current host of Art Of Beatz, Vancouver's home for electronic music on the radio, he's got one hand on the pulse and the other on on a red stripe...
