Excision launches new initiative to support underrepresented, underprivileged bass artists
Not only lauded for his production expertise, immerse live show experiences, and his commanding influence over the bass music scene, Excision has once again dedicated his powers for good, launching the Excision Bassic Music Initiative—a brand new $100,000 creator fund for underrepresented artists. This is not the first time throughout the bass veteran’s industrious career that the industry has seen Excision empower smaller artists. One of most effective ways he’s helped build emerging acts’ careers is his fledging Subsidia imprint, where he has sought out and welcomed dozens of smaller names across a multitude of compilation albums, Dusk, Dawn, and Night, volumes 1 through 6.
The money will be divided amongst 10 chosen artists, along with sponsored studio equipment and priceless support from Excision and his Subsidia imprint across all major platforms and events. Presented with a small settlement from an accident that jump-started his career and allotted for him to purchase the proper equipment and focus entirely on music, Excision has always been an advocate for paying it forward. He writes in a post on social media,
“Talented artists who are spending the majority of their time working a job that isn’t their passion just to make ends meet are losing out to those who have the financial freedom to really focus on producing music.”
Acknowledging that the opportunities he’s gotten since this formative years were due in part to the money he was privileged to receive early in life, Excision moves forward in hopes that the 10 recipients of $10,000 each will see their own careers bolstered as a result.
