SO SCREW IT: I’m (Dub)stepping Out

Posted in Note to Readers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2009 by worldromper

Yes that is the title given to my piece on UK dubstep for the “British Sessions Part I” issue of Covers Magazine. I am not 100% happy with the edits made (a lot of coke in the Thames WTF?), but it is meant to be an intro piece for people who have never heard of dubstep before.

Read it here.

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.

Want to go to the Smog show tomorrow night at the Echoplex with Joe Nice, XI, Juakali, Spit Brothers, DLX and Kemst but are broke as a joke with no toke?

Post your best dubstep haiku here where Skeet Skeet —> is giving away five pairs of tickets to a broke-ass poet with a brand new cadence. If you don’t know who Skeet Skeet is, you should check out his website anyway because it is hella funny. 

You know it’s gonna be a good show when they make a fucking trailer for it:
