DJ Evol

As DJ Evol, Bradley is an internationally-recognized DJ with music featured on BBC Radio, Fuel TV, and Scion AV. DJ Evol has been an established player on the national drum and bass scene for many years, releasing on the highly lauded UK labels True Playaz and Urban Takeover. A respected name in the international electronic music community, this prolific producer also runs his own record label based out of Los Angeles called Monster Musick. Originally from Chicago, Evol has found a home in LA and brings years of experience in bass music from residencies and radio to the West Coast, a fact which is not lost on the dance floors he habitually incinerates. Evol is now a converted dubstepper and lends his thick talent at the decks to the SMOG family’s wide variety of parties and productions.

A longstanding member of SMOG, Evol was featured on the very first release from the crew’s own record label with his smash hit “Sickness,” which was played on heavy rotation by Plastician on RinseFM and subsequently promoted in his mix “Wake Up Call.” Besides being a mainstay on the lineup at SMOG events, Evol also throws a monthly night of afflicted beats at the Los Angeles House of Blues called “House of Dub.” As a producer and DJ, he makes people dance, and with a grimy sense of timing, impeccable mixing skills and choice track selection.
