THIRDSDAZE in Seattle: New BASS MUSIC Crunkthly @ Rebar

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2009 by worldromper


Seattle’s got a new night of future sound bass music (don’t call it midtempo) happening every third Thursday at Rebar starting in June: Thirdsdaze. I like the name because when you say it, you sound like you are already half drunk.

This new night of crunkedouthyphyfunkadelicpsybrokenwhomphopmusicforbasssluts is brought to you by the same party kids who do the whompcast over at, Rockit Science – aka my people. Besides the best in forward-thinking bass music and sticky grime, Thirdsdaze will also feature live painting, digital art, and performances. And parties in the parking lot.

The new monthly kicks off June 18 with Propa Tingz (BreakBeatBuddha), PrEssHa, Dirty Steve and Northstar at the Rebar, my favorite dance club in Seattle which has just upgraded its sound system to stellar reviews. The July 16 lineup is super fat as well and includes ill-esha, Zacharia, Aksion and Kat1lyst.

Head over to and listen to the free downloadable whompcasts to get an idea of what kind of sounds you will hear at what will no doubt be the freshest music monthly in Seattle: THIRDSDAZE.

UPDATE: I will be at the opening night of Thirdsdaze on June 18th! See you on the dance floor, Seattle! I am so excited!

From the Front Lines: edIT @ Pure Filth, Vibesquad & BreakBeatBuddha

edIT mixing edIT live five feet in front of me Friday night at Pure Filth was the best part of my week, fo sho. MC Kemst was on hand as well and I really enjoyed the stylings of Ras G along with SamIYam; these two are also part of the future bass sound culture here in LA and they are dragging dance floors with them.


Saturday night BreakBeatBuddha and Vibesquad were also laying down proper things at this ravey masquerade called “War of the Roses” which was not really all that. The giant feather chandelier was dope and I want one, but the golden mask decor was lame and uninspired, the three rooms spread out the attendees and the energy a bit too much, and very few people even dressed up- losers.

Still, Vibesquad ALWAYS throws down bricks on the floor and is an absolute joy to watch, and do you know who plays some hefty fucking breaks? Eva plays some hefty fucking breaks! Which is of course the only way breaks should be. 

That is all you get. More to come this week, I promise.
