Soundkeepers, which was conceived as a two-person Electro DJ/producer team evolved in 2010 to become the solo, mainly Dubstep, project of Ricky Medina. Although mixes and sets will include house music of all sorts where appropriate, Ricky plans to focus most of his energy on his blooming collection of Dubstep productions. With original tracks pending release from the labels Filthy Digital Recordings and Code of Arms Records in 2011, he is clearly on the right track. Artists like Reid Speed, Hellfire Machina, Somejerk, Nebulla, and Soroka have already shown interest in his music. It is, after all, hard to expect anything else from someone who, from a very young age, has experienced and been involved with the New York City dance music scene. To be sure, these roots influence his productions which tend to be huge, body-shaking melodic bangers. His love for all things below 80hz, however, extends past that description with productions of all sorts including tech house, electro house, and more agressive Dubstep tunes. At the end of the day one thing is clear, 2011 and beyond will be the age of Soundkeepers, so look out for this guy’s tunes in a club near you.
