Dubstep DJ Doorly: "Everyone Goes Mental"

If he isn't too busy running his own record label as well as heading his own underground radio station in the UK, Doorly can be found creating his classic beats and touring.

Now he's back in the U.S. on tour for the first time in half a year, and performs Saturday night at new downtown spot Kryptonite. Rocks Off spoke with the DJ about EDM's progression from the UK to the U.S., as well as his recent work with Beardyman.

Rocks Off: I love the classic sounds you produce, however I think we can both admit that dubstep has progressed to a different sound today. Even from the UK to the U.S. there are different sounds. What's your perspective on the rise of EDM in the U.S., and what do you think of the younger producers and DJs in the game now?
