RUN DMT's sound reflects a torrid love affair with heavy basslines, thunderous beats, and haunting melodies. Formed in Austin, TX in the summer of 2010, RUN DMT approached heavy bass music without borders; touching on Dubstep, Drumstep, Trap, Moombahton, atmospheric Downtempo and more. In his short 2.5 year of history he has made high profile appearances at Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella, The Vans Warped Tour, Camp Bisco, Nocturnal Festival, Wakarusa, Snowball Music Festival, and Counterpoint Fest . His original productions and remixes have become recent playlist staples for DJs ranging from Bassnectar to Flux Pavilion to Excision to 12th Planet and beyond. RUN DMT has also done official remixes for the likes of The Who (yes THE WHO), Major Lazer, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Fitz & The Tantrums, Figure, and Hundred Waters.
In 2011, RUN DMT's first official release, "Drop Top" hit the top of the Beatport charts and remained in the Top 10 for six weeks. "Drop Top" was followed by a series of high charting EPs and a high profile inclusion on the Mortal Kombat video game soundtrack with "Baraka's Theme". RUN DMT capped off the year with a Mad Decent-released mixtape "Year of White Rabbit".
In June 2012, RUN DMT released his debut full length album "Union of Opposites", featuring Chali 2na, Dj Swamp, and Zeale, which hit #2 Dubstep and #11 Variety Charts on Beatport. RUN DMT closed out 2012 with a brand new 58-track, 140 minute mixtape, "The Existential Mix".
In 2013 Run DMT's official remix of Major Lazer's "Jah No Partial" was released thru Mad Decent/Downtown. 2013 also saw the release of his remix for Dimitri Vegas/Like Mike/Lil Jon's "Madness" on Dim Mak Records. A new Self-Titled 8-Track EP dropped in July 2013 to press acclaim from Vice, Rolling Stone, Magnectic Magazine, Thissongissick, and many other crucial tastemakers.
