New Dubstep Weekly: HEAVY Launches Thursday, June 23 @ Echoplex

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , on June 11, 2011 by worldromper

It’s hard to believe that with the undeniable upsurge in popularity that dubstep has experience in the past few years that there is no weekly dubstep night in Los Angeles.

That’s all about to change with the launch of HEAVY, an all-dubstep night on the east side at the Echoplex which will take place every Thursday. This new event is 18+, the cover is $10 and with the big capacity of the Echoplex, should be a rightful banger.

Resident DJs will be local legend 6Blocc, as well as Daddy Kev and DJ Nobody of Low End Theory fame. Special guests will perform every week, and word on the street is that some pretty big names are lined up to play the first several weeks of events.

Find more information on the HEAVY Facebook event page, and follow HEAVY on Twitter for all the late-breaking updates about this new weekly event.

BASSFACE REEEWIND! Friday January 8 DO IT

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2010 by worldromper

So the last Bassface party on December 26 had some uninvited guests- the LAPD, who shut that shit down shortly after midnight.

For all of those whose night was cut short, and for those like me who were out of town and missed it completely, Pure Filth is doing a reeeeeeee-wind. I am normally not the biggest fan of the rewind but in this case I’ll make an exception!

If you still have your wristband from the event on December 26, bring it for $5 entry and “a magic ticket for something to make you smile.” For all others the cover is $10 all night, and the shit goes down at Lot 613, a fully licensed warehouse venue- in other words, fuck tha police.

LINEUP:

  • Flying Lotus
  • Daedelus
  • 6 Blocc
  • Daddy Kev
  • The Professionals
  • Jeremy Ellis
  • Atlantic Connection
  • Ras G
  • DLX
  • Magi
  • Kemst
  • Julz

Check out the Facebook event page and RSVP here! See you in the grime!

JUAKALI @ Jujubeats w/Bassnectar, Glitch Mob, Z-Trip and more

Posted in Artists, Events, Festivals with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2009 by worldromper

Juakali at Dubwar in NYCJuakali is an MC and lyrical stylist that I first heard perform with Joe Nice at a Smog event at the Echoplex a few weeks ago; he delivers his rhymes with positive vibes and a melodic island-lilt that perfectly complements the dark waves of dubstep bass. With dubstep’s dirty depth, you don’t need heavy, machine-gun delivered death raps that push you towards the floor; much better is the offset of a river of bouncing vocals like Juakali’s, laid over the beats and bassline like a ribbon of hopeful smoke over the low end wobble. Inhale.

Juakali will be performing this Saturday August 1 at Jujubeats Festival in Orange County. There are several stages of amazing world-class talent, but there’s only one place where you will find me and my bretheren of bass, and that is the front of the dance floor at the Flower Power Garden with Bassnectar, Glitch Mob, Z-Trip, 6Blocc, Kush Arora, Mozaic and Juakali. Nice!

Right now tickets online start at $45 and there is camping available for this one night festie.

Also catch Juakali at this year’s Decibel Festival in Seattle taking place September 24-27 in the clubs, dance floors, bars, streets and parks of the fair Emerald City.
