Tribe Resident: DWAM


Originally from Toronto, ON, but now based out of Victoria, B.C., the eclectic producer DWAM (Lucas Rivas) specializes in a style of bass music that opens portals between the swagger of hip hop blended seamlessly with heavily distorted bass lines. He excels in crystal clear sound design, deep bass, and reaching into the vaults to pull out the perfect sample. Influenced by 90s hip hop such as Biggie, Nas, Big L, Mobb Deep, and A Tribe Called Quest (among many others) as well as bass music artists such as Ivy Lab, Kll Smth, Bassnectar, G Jones, and Shades. Working closely with artists of all disciplines, his goal for DWAM is to give listeners a full audiovisual experience.
