Superfan Series: Soriah Suggs – The Undying Fan of Excision, Destroid, and Lost Lands Music Festival

Let’s get to know Soriah Suggs, the Excision Superfan.

Q1: For anyone who doesn’t know you or your undying passion; please elaborate! Who are you and who is the artist at hand we are fantasizing over?

A1: My name is Soriah Suggs I also go by Destroid Queen or Subsidia Queen, I am 20 years old. My birthday is January 12th and I am a hugely passionate fan of the artist, Excision, been loving his music for almost 8 years so far and have not lost my love for the music.

I am a highly energetic human with a heart full of love for everyone I meet. I am full of laughs, smiles, and energy that I like to express every day on my social media pages.
I promote music for fun, make photo edits for fun, and love to dance, sing, headbang, gush about Excision and dubstep AND make people smile every day.
I am also a gamer, writer, with a very active and creative mind.
I am an extreme dubstep enthusiast, I go crazy from the slightest WUB.

Excision is a Canadian producer/DJ for those who do not know who he is.

Q2: Where did this love for Excision come from? Take us back to that moment in time and where was it?

A2: This will get emotional but back in 2014, my life was pretty empty for the most part, I was trying to find myself even though I been through a pretty rough childhood. Chilling in my living room on a chill summer night, was the night my life will change forever. I was on Spotify, browsing through playlists and radio stations as music was becoming the only thing really keeping my head up.

As I was going through songs, one stood out to me, “X Rated” by Excision featuring the MC, Messinian. Upon hearing it, I was in awe at how dark it sounded to me. The drop startled me but gave me a rush I have never felt before. I knew right after hearing that song that I wanted more so I looked through Excision’s music and became more hooked. 2016 was the year I came out of just lurking through the music. I was on Facebook now, started posting about Excision and how much I enjoyed his music. That is when I was added to the group, “Excision’s Headbangers” I was so happy to have been added to a group of people like me.

It was the beginning of my life in the Bass scene. I was already noticed by the man himself when I posted in the group which had me stoked. I moved over to Twitter and Instagram and started posting about this new found passion I kept hidden for a year and a half. I got even more stoked when Excision followed me on Twitter, never feeling so happy in my life being noticed by the one whose music saved my life. I even shared my love for the many artists I found along the way when I got hooked on this music. I felt like me for the first time in my life of thinking I would never find a passion. 

Since then, I continue to keep all tabs with Excision, I wanna know everything about his music!
I already have a lot of knowledge about it of course.

If I ever meet him, I will thank him for being the reason I am here today, his music really is one of the biggest things that helped me through hard times.

Q4: Of all his adventures, side projects, and aliases; what is your favorite from Excision? (minus Excision himself)



A4: Destroid, I absolutely love the concept behind it, alien robots that come to take over the world, conquer the universe, and destroy the weak. Absolutely next level.
I think about them a lot, I see the alien trio as my protectors.
If I ever see them in real life, I may faint.

Also his old label Rottun and his new label Subsidia, both amazing labels!!
Of course, I am known as Subsidia Queen since I will be gushing over Subsidia a lot!

Lost Lands, such a creative idea turned into the best place ever in Bass, the land of BASS and DINOSAURS!!! I am glad to finally see it myself, a true dream come true for me!

Excision’s creations are always so mind-blowing and it is hard to choose just one, he is a GENIUS.

You can tell Excision and his team put a lot of time and effort into making us fans stare and scream in awe. I will never stop being blown away by everything he and his amazing team does.

Excision is a hard-working man and he loves what he does, we really do not deserve him, he is wholesome and so is every human being involved with making a lot of his projects and creations happen.

Let’s talk Subsidia for one second; I am blown away by how many small artists Excision put on the label, giving them a chance to shine in the scene. Absolutely wholesome and such an amazing way to discover new music and styles of music! My mates do not call me Subsidia Queen for nothin’, haha!

I know I am gushing at this point but I have to express just how much of a fan I am of Excision.

One of my main goals is to meet both Excision and Emma the king and queen of Bass!

Q5: You are going to Lost Lands! How unbelievably exciting for you and all the fans of Excision’s who knows who you are. Can you describe how this opportunity makes you feel?

A5: Man, when my friend texted me on that Saturday afternoon about a surprise, I was expecting him to get me merch, but when he explained the whole thing about having an extra ticket for Lost Lands, I just about cried. I thought I was never gonna be able to go, I really could not believe this is going to happen to me. Then I saw the post he made in the official Lost Lands group on Facebook, all the love I got, the many people saying I deserve to go out of everyone.

It was so very heartwarming that my friend and his S/O thought of me when they had an extra Lost Lands ticket. On top of that, it’s not just General Admission, it is VIP, Wednesday Early Access, and Camping Pass. What a treat that is to me, I have been blessed by the Bass Gods for sure.

I would like to see Excision go B2B with Space Laces! They have made several collabs and I would love to see them both throw down back to back!
