Michael Red, aka Souns, is a Vancouver based music producer, performer, DJ and event organizer. Michael is the founding member of Lighta! Sound, acting captain of the Low Indigo ship, regular collaborator with Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq and music curator for the New Forms Festival. Red has played a pivotal role in shaping the city’s internationally recognized dubstep/bass scene. As a live performer, Michael combines his “sound art” side with his summed DJ experience – blending layered atmospheres, subtle details, and improvised manipulations with a dance floor sensibility. His bass music sets can vary greatly in tempo and feel – traversing the many modes of dubstep, future and roots dub, heaters, select rap and modern R&B cuts, dancehall fusions, post-dubstep and genre-less music in between.
