BASSFACE goes BERSERK in July

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , , , on June 17, 2010 by worldromper

SoCal I hope you are readyPure Filth has put together a string of wicked shows in Los Angeles and San Diego for the month of July, top-notch dubstep artists backed up by the nastiest sound system on the West Coast. I am particularly excited for the three-year anniversary party going down on the 4th of July at the Airliner. I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE BASS.

Get ready for the ridiculousness:

Pure Filth Presents BASSFACE Jan 30 w/JAKES & Take

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2010 by worldromper

Is Sam XXXL‘s sound system the best on the West Coast?

Come and judge for yourself at BASSFACE presented by Pure Filth on Saturday, January 30 and for the love of filth and all else that is holy, GET THERE EARLY. Not LA-early, which is midnight, but for reals yo: early. As the power of bass music is growing exponentially, the venues can’t keep up with the crowds so if you want to share in this magical night, head to Lot 613 earlier than you think you should.

Headlining this time around is Jakes, a dubstep legend from Bristol who smashes every speaker he touches, and Take, a local beat hero who crushes genres together in the most delightful and unusual ways.

And of course it doesn’t stop there: The Professionals, Jaybird, DLX, Druley, MC Kemst and bad ass visuals by Dr. Strangeloop complete the night.

THE VENUE Lot 613 is fully licensed (so the cops can’t fuck with us) with two large rooms, and extra security has been added this time around to make that line go faster. Show is 18 & up, 21+ to drink and is 9PM-3AM. See you on the dance floor.

BASSFACE Review: Flying Lotus, Daedelus, Gaslamp Killer

SO

Bassface was awesome. First of all, Pure Filth’s system + Sam always on point = best sound system on the West Coast? Quite possibly. The sound is immaculate, and the bass takes on other dimensions.

The line was super long, the cops tried to step, but Lot 613 is a fully licensed venue so the party continued. I was inside in time to catch the very last of Gaslamp Killer’s set and he was throwing down some wicked drum and bass-laced madness with Strangeloop’s twisted visuals booming in the background for a wild effect.

Flying Lotus was next, and what can I say? I danced with a wide smile smeared across my face for his entire set, which was absolutely inspiring. And Daedelus’ live set was straight slammin; conducting the crowd like a master magician in white tails, his special blend of eight thousand genres cannot be confined to words; you must see him live.

DO NOT MISS the next Bassface on January 30 with Jakes and Take, it will be held at the same place, the certified venue Lot 613. And for the love of bass, if you want to get into the party: GET THERE EARLY.

Also catch Daedelus this Thursday at I AM A LASER at Club Nokia Mezzanine Lounge.
