DUBSTEP.FM Invades LA this Friday Night!

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2009 by worldromper

BWOMP presents: Dubstep.FM Invades Los Angeles this Friday night at a secure downtown art gallery location, featuring Dopelabs, the Seattle dubstep mastermind behind Dubstep.FM. Having listened to countless hours of Dank Deals and other Dubstep.FM programs, I am a fan and look forward to hearing what tracks he pulls out of his brain to throw down on the Pure Filth sound system. PLUS- the show will be broadcasted live worldwide on Dubstep.FM!

Also on the bill: SMOG’s EMU, HD4000, J-Viz, Tminus & Shambles, Yong, Kid Logic, DemonOne and TenBucc2. I have also heard talk of a special surprise guest yet to be announced, but let me just say I hope I see him get raw with his southpaw style. And it’s not Method Man.

Doors open at 8PM, cover is $10 before 11PM and $15 after. For venue location, call the info line the night of the event at (818) 253-1420 or go on BWOMP.net and click here for the Facebook event page.

I have been doing hella event postings lately because there is just a ridiculous amount of delicious bass music and awesome shows going down these days in LA! I moved here ten months ago for the music and have not been disappointed yet!

This Saturday night November 14 my good friends of BWOMP (Bass With Out Musical Preference) present: Attack of the Bass with a lineup that is diverse in styles yet united in the search for the cell-shuddering bass: glitch hop, dubstep, crunk and all of their miscreant children. The venue is tight as hell, covered in killer graffiti art with plenty of space both to chill and to dance, and the sound support is by none other than PURE FILTH. Besides the whomp you will find live artists doing 8-bit art as well as live graffiti and airbrushing, and don’t forget the video games.

ON THE LINEUP:

And the BWOMP crew:

  • JVIZ
  • Ev-1
  • Frenetic
  • DJ 007
  • DemonOne
  • Sati
  • TenBucc2
  • DJ Eye Q
  • Myndz~iii

Attack of the Bass is 18+, $10 before 11PM and $15 after. Doors at 8PM, venue TBA. Click here for the Facebook event page, and see you on the dance floor!

AN-TEN-NAE in LA @ Fill in the BASS Friday August 21!

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2009 by worldromper

an-ten-naeDO NOT MISS this legend of the SF underground in his last West Coast appearance before The Burn! An-ten-nae‘s new EP, Acid Crunk, is currently holding down the top five spots on Addictech and is super curly and extra crunchy, just like his live set action which he has been perfecting and tweaking for over ten years. An-ten-nae is an instrumental part of the West Coast Future Sound Movement.

Check out a free mix from an-ten-nae here.

Come and hear this freaky sound pioneer this Friday August 21 at the first installment of Fill in the Bass presented by Bwomp! along with Oscure vs. Odeed (live on four decks), Ev-1, Kid Logic, JViz, Eva, 007, Frenetic, Sati and Headsett. Join us in a new underground venue downtown with sweet graffiti art, dancers, performing artists, and- I think I heard something about a Willy Wonka peep show.

Not in LA? Catch an-ten-nae at Symbiosis Gathering near Yosemite and Decibel Festival in Seattle near the end of September, and check out his other dates here.

Otherwise, get your ass to Fill in the BASS this Friday! Call 310-933-1451 the night of the show for the address and be ready for a night of thick music and heady fun. See you on the dance floor!

BWOMP!

BWOMP presents FILL IN THE BASS w/An-ten-nae, Odeed vs. Oscure, Eva & more

In LA you’ve got huge dubstep crews, gangs of house heads, whole posses of techno freaks and armies of drum and bass fanatics. But I was surprised when I moved here to find out there is no real community around the type of music that I love the most, which can best be described as bass music.

what is that crunching sound?That is about to change, thanks to the creation of BWOMP: Bass WithOut Musical Preference.

At BWOMP parties you will hear a lot of glitch hop and dubstep, as well as breaks, drum and bass, hip hop, 2-step, midtempo, IDM, skweee, UK funky, sklitch core step, death metal step funk, muffin step, crunk flip, chewysteaze, ho hop, drum and face, fuckstep, slicktempo, as well as emerging bass-centric genres yet to be named. ESPECIALLY those yet to be named.

And yeah I just made a bunch of those genres up; to make it a bit easier on yourself, just call it: crunkedouthyphyfunkadelicpsybrokenwhomphopmusicforbasssluts.

Our first monthly called Fill in the Bass is 18+ and takes place Friday August 21 in a TBA downtown LA venue with sweet graffiti art all over the walls. The alcohol will be cheap, the art will be live, and cover is $10 before 11PM and $15 after.

Check this lineup:

  • An-ten-nae
  • Oscure vs. Odeed (Live on 4 Decks!)
  • Kid Logic
  • JViz
  • Eva vs. DJ 007
  • EV-1 vs. Frenetic
  • Sati
  • Headsett

For directions on the night of the event, check back here or on BwompBeats the night of the event; you can also call 310-933-1451 and the Facebook listing is here. I hope to see you all there on the dance floor!
