Artist of the day: Subpirate and Kid Pacific




The summer of dubstep continues. Today we're taking a look at not one but two of the DJs you can thank for dropping whomps on downtown St. Pete: Subpirate (left, above) and Kid Pacific.

Subpirate, a.k.a. Jason Feder, is the driving force behind Fubar's wildly popular Turbo Tuesday dubstep nights. Kid Pacific, a.k.a. Austin Pacific, often spins at Bar Milo. And they're among the 'Burg's growing population of dubstep DJs.

“The population has completely surged,” Subpirate says. “We now have over 200 DJs who specialize in dubstep.”
