Gohma, Promising Dubstep Producer, Dead at 23

Gohma, a promising DJ and dubstep artist, has died at the age of 2023.

The German producer, whose real name was Jonas Kern, was 23. Kern's death was revealed by Chime's Rushdown Records, with whom he released music on multiple occasions.

"We are devastated to hear today that Gohma has passed – a producer that has worked with and inspired many of us here at Rushdown," the label wrote. "We are so proud to have released 'Power' back in 2020 alongside his winning remix of 'Wait For Me' by Chime. His hyper fun take on dubstep was infectious and his contributions to bass music lives on in all of us touched by his music."

Comments shared by Kern's contemporaries on social media paint a picture of a precocious beatsmith who was beloved for his usage of Novation's Launchpad hardware. 2019's scintillating Bad Dreams EP remains a fan-favorite.
