Filthgrinder emerged from San Jose, CA. It all started out at the beginning of 2009 when he first heard Excisions’ Shambhala 2008 Mix, At that point he fell in love with dubstep. Coming from a heavy metal background it was very easy to adapt to this new sound. As he collected songs and put them together he made new creations out of them and realized he was already mixing and making mash-ups. His “DJ” goal was almost incidental. Filthgrinder puts his best into every performance as he continues to receive support from the Bay Area, he also shared the stage with Antiserum, Getter, Helicopter Showdown, Cyberoptics, Schoolboy, J.Rabbit, Luminox, AK1200, Hellfire Machina, Midnight Conspiracy and Bassex.
