Sonic Bloom would not be complete without Space Jesus’ bass-filled out of this world music. This Brooklyn native brings heavy industrial wubs which will make you feel like you are getting beamed up to his spaceship.

By ignoring the hundreds of melodies that other artists repeat Space Jesus makes something new, fresh, and sure to be copied. With truly original beats this artist breaks the norm and brings an audience on a journey that goes from chill to intense, and euphoric to grimy with everything in between. This music is best enjoyed on an epic sound system where you can do more than just hear it, you can feel the music and experience the beats vibrate your chakras into pure bliss.
