12th Planet Talks Dubstep, Trap Houses, and Drop-Crotch Pants

America loves dance music, and bass music is especially beloved by thousands, probably millions, of happy beat freaks, from Miami to New York and Los Angeles.

Now, we can't really say 12th Planet is the man responsible for the current bass trend in the U.S., but we can say he his futuristic vision helped push the crowds onto the dance floor. He helped import the dubstep sound from London back in the mid 2000s, and as far as he's concerned, the bass movement is going harder and stronger than ever.

Straight from the mythical land of Nibiru (or maybe just Hollywood), he'll be landing at Grand Central this Friday to unleash face-melting, bone-crushing space-gangster beats. But first, we had this little chat.
