ONHELL is Oakland based composer, producer and DJ, Angel Rubio-Hale.
His recent releases on Plastician’s Terrorhythm Recordings and Truth’s Deep, Dark and Dangerous, exhibit the breadth of his development within the experimental bass music sphere. Consistently exploring beyond the bounds of the prevalent, he’s highly adept at integrating his influences and inspirations into compositions that are distinctly true to his originality.
His recent guest mix on Rinse FM exemplifies his ability to tastefully meld his own work with carefully chosen selections. This attention to detail, an ever expanding fresh perspective and his innovative inclinations allow each of his DJ sets to be wholly unique curations. After completing multiple US tours and his first international tour across Asia, he’s currently in the inceptive stages of composing his first album.
“Being thrust into the mainstream has given me a headache, and turning down is the motive. With ONHELL’s Use EP, we get exactly what we’re looking for in a night in. Mixing trap, bass, juke, twerk, and booty bass vibes, this producer from Arcata, California creates a dreamy and sexy bedroom vibe that cannot be denied. And though we’re listing genres, none of these records can quite fit within a box.”

“West coast bass fans have a brand new hero. ONHELL is making huge leaps from the tiny town of Eureka, CA. Long a fringe figure in the NorCal beat scene, Angel Rubio-Hale has found himself in the midst of a musical revolution..” – The Untz
“Angel Rubio Hale, AKA ONHELL, is yet another supremely talented producer emerging from the fog banks of Northern California. His sound is multifaceted and versatile, a sexy yet somber blend of RnB, hip-hop, future bass, and psycahdelic, ambient beats.” -YourEDM
