Next Level Sound Station is a Los Angeles-based production trio who create modern, beat-infused tracks drawing from their collective knowledge and love of Jamaican Dub, Roots, Dancehall, Reggae, Hip Hop, and Electronic Dance music styles. Their ambitious first project is an original Dub Reggae soundtrack that garnered the “Best Use of Music” Award at the 2014 Julien Dubuque International Film Festival, for the independent full-length film, “Sunken City”, which saw domestic and international release digitally in May, 2014 by Echo Bridge Entertainment.
This collaborative team of Blake Colie, Jared Meeker, and DJ Prophecy are currently in production with various other projects that will make their influence reach well beyond LA in the upcoming months.
