List of plugins currently used by Subtronics
If we were to create a list of the fastest-growing bass producers, one of the first people mentioned would be, without a doubt, Jesse Kardon, better known as Subtronics. If you’ve at least the slightest bit wiped out the dubstep scene in 2020, it’s probably impossible that you haven’t heard his collaboration with GRiZ, ‘Griztronics’. His 5-segment mix series ‘NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL RIDDIM‘, which started more than 3 years ago, has generated over 5 million views on SoundCloud only. In 2020 alone, Subtronics released two EPs, collaborations with Zeds Dead and NGHTMRE, and at the end of the year launched Cyclops Recordings, which is one of the most promising new bass labels to date. Co-author of ‘Bounce’ (with Rusko), this track is one of the most popular (if not the most popular) representatives of the riddim genre and the object of countless production inspirations among beginner producers. Because of the coronavirus situation in the world, Subtronics appeared a few times on Twitch giving several hours of production live streams. Some of you may be more interested in what kind of plugins Subtronics uses when creating his riddim bangers. Below you will find a list of some of the vst plugins used by Subtronics.
