As a founding member of the Atlanta-based DJ/MC collective Bad Seed Creations, Subconscious has lived a life deeply immersed in the world of music. His appreciation for diverse musical styles began with the influence of his parents, exposing him to a rich tapestry of sounds. While drawn to the groove of 70’s Funk and Soul, he developed a profound admiration for iconic artists such as Prince and Stevie Wonder.
In the early 80s, the emergence of Hip Hop captivated Subconscious, with artists like Run DMC, Public Enemy, The Notorious B.I.G., and Eminem leaving an indelible mark. The genre’s roots in Funk resonated with him, shaping his musical journey. The 90s sparked a desire to become a Producer and DJ, leading him to discover the dynamic realm of EDM, particularly Jungle/Drum N Bass. Attending electrifying rave events featuring pioneers like Hive, Gridlok, Ed Rush & Optical, and Dieselboy, Subconscious found his calling in Drum N Bass—a sound he had envisioned as the future.
Venturing into the Atlanta scene, he became the first DnB DJ to regularly use Serato, showcasing his dedication. Teaming up with the Bad Seed Crew, Subconscious played a pivotal role in organizing events featuring renowned acts like J. Majik, Evol Intent, Faust & Shortee, and Infiltrata (aka 12th Planet). In 2020, amid the pandemic, he co-founded the Atlanta DJ Collective (ADJC). He currently co-runs Torch DNB, one of the longest running DNB nights in Atlanta supporting all locals. In 2024, Subconscious launched Bad Seed Creations as a label, focusing on the sounds of Drum N Bass.
Looking ahead, Subconscious is focused on pushing ADJC forward, strengthening the legacy of Torch, and preparing new tunes for release, steering full steam ahead into the future of his musical journey.
