Who is Parasite?

Parasite is the artist name of raggacore/breakcore musician/producer Armin Elsaesser. He was born in Eureka, California and currently lives in Bristol, England.

Elsaesser runs the record label Death$ucker Records, which boasts one of breakcore's most eclectic rosters, featuring Bong-Ra, knifehandchop, Monkey Steak, d'kat, and DJ Ripley. In addition to records on his own label, he has released work on Peace Off records and on Bong-Ra's label, Clash Records. He also heads, which advertises as "the premier online record shop specialising in Breakcore, Mash Up, Ragga Jungle, Dubstep, Grime, Drum & Bass, Electronica and Bashment," and offers support to small independent labels, musicians and producers. Elsaesser also organised the now-defunct Toxic Dancehall parties in Bristol. The parties grew from 30 people in the basement of an Indian restaurant to crowds over a thousand strong at the Black Swan in just three years. After deciding that he wanted to take the live music in a different direction he co-founded 'The Goatlab' which looked to break new music and artists on the Bristol breakcore scene.
