Perkulat0r aka Ben Jamer was sent from outer space to smack the world with a fourth dimension of sound. Hailing from the suburbs of Vancouver, Jamer has made a name for himself with his soulful brand of intelligent beatmaking. Saucing listeners from the feet up with his signature soundscapes, lush with weaving melodies and dripping with delicious bass, Perkulat0r has delivered his take on multi-genre bass music to audiences at festivals across North America.
"After winning Minnesota's "Stardust" remix competition last year, Perkulat0r has worked his way into the Gravitas Recordings family. The producer out of BC netted himself a full-fledged release of Transcension, his debut album, slated for a March 25th drop date. Full of smooth, sexy glitch-hop, the Canadian artist has crafted a sound that balances contemporary production techniques with a strong footing in a traditional glitch-hop aesthetic. "-- The Untz
"The bass community became very familiar with the name Perkulat0r last June, when he won Minnesota‘s Starburst Redux remix contest with a stellar and unique re-imagining of the original. Since then he’s been keeping it relatively low-key, apart from a few downloads that he’s released on his Soundcloud. Where has he been? Apparently, churning out some of the most magnificently beautiful purple bass music we’ve had the chance to listen to"-- Booms and Claps
"I owe a huge amount to Austin, Texas label Gravitas Recordings. I don’t think I can count on one hand all the incredible artists that I’ve found because of Gravitas. The label is constantly pushing forward progressive and challenging releases from a diverse group of producers and musicians. Not only have I seen releases through Gravitas from some of my favorites- including Zebbler Encanti Experience, D.V.S* and ill-esha- but the label has also introduced me to plenty of new producers who are making just as much noise as those aforementioned.
