Subtract Music is a record label, event production and an artist collective based in Los Angeles, California. Founded in 2011, it has quickly become a leading force in the Los Angeles underground electronic music scene.
The label was founded by Anton Tumas, who with a small group of friends, shared a passion for the underground electronic music, and desired to create a platform for up-and-coming artists to showcase their talent. The label’s first release titled “Black Rock City” featured an original by DAVÍ, and remixes from Robert Babicz and Deepfunk. The release got substantial attention in the electronic music community.
Since then, Subtract Music has continued to release a wide range of music, from deep house to techno and beyond, with a slow but steady release schedule. It has secured remixes from heavyweights such as John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, Guy J, Stimming, Matthew Dekay and others. The label also hosts successful events in Los Angeles and beyond, featuring live performances from both established and emerging artists.
In addition to its record releases and events, Subtract Music also runs a successful sound rental operation, providing well-tuned and crystal-clear audio for many of LA’s leading underground events and promoters. On top of that, their sound systems at Black Rock City Desert, Nevada have become the talk of the town.
Today, Subtract Music remains dedicated to supporting and promoting underground electronic music, and continues to be a leading force in the Los Angeles scene.
