First of all, look at this sweet ass flyer by Andrew Jones:

Now, look at this stupid lineup:

  • VIBESQUAD
  • SUBVERT
  • EXCISION
  • DATSIK
  • PROPA TINGZ (Breakbeat Buddha)
  • 12th Planet
  • Oscure
  • Patricio
  • Eva
  • Braden
  • The Professionals
  • DJ 007
  • Bass Mechanic
  • Remo
  • RudElgin
  • Magi
  • J-Viz
  • Kemst

Finally, make plans to party with OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY (the best kind) on NOVEMBER 7 at the Nucleus Events Center, a Gangster Theme party with 1920’s attire strongly encouraged (ladies get out those flapper dresses!). In addition to two stages and a lineup that is so sick it is practically dying, you will enjoy live dance performances, outdoor art displays, fire spinning and a little mania thrown in on the side.

STOKED about this one! See you there!

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!

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!
