SHIFT Dubstep Droppin’ Seattle Selections Like RAINBOMBS

Posted in LISTEN TO THIS, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2009 by worldromper

Dubstep fits well in the city of Seattle; the overcast and often dreary climate is the perfect partner for this bass-heavy genre and the grime of Seattle gives its dubstep a dirty edge that can’t wipe away even if you wanted it to.

Shift Recordings drops Seattle Selections today; this compilation album features many of the Pacific Northwest’s rising stars and fresh voices in electronic music including KJ Sawka, Lukki, Dubtek, Sublo, Kid Simple and much more.

Check the Dubstep Forum thread here and buy the album June 9th on Beatport, Digital Tunes, Juno UK or Addictech. And then get down.

12th Planet, Lukki & PrEssHa @ SHIFT Friday May 15 in Seattle

LA’s 12th Planet invades Seatown this Friday night at Shift Dubstep Sessions at Contour; that place is gonna be PACKED to the freaking gills.

I have heard 12th Planet several times since I have been down here in LA and he has never failed to deliver. My favorite set was at the Rusko live show when 12th Planet came on right after Rusko and continued the epic audience massacre like nothin’.

Openers for the night are Seattle dubstep legend Lukki and my good friend and Future DJ Extraordinaire PrEssHa.

Do not sleep on this Shift! And remember, if you walk around inside of Contour barefoot and drunk while smoking cigarettes, they WILL kick your ass out. 

Dirty Filthy Whompcast: LUKKI

When it comes to Seattle dubstep, Lukki is the man. Founder of Shift Recordings and cofounder of Dub Alliance Records as well as the forum WestCoastDubstep.com, he is an integral weapon in the futurement of dubstep on the West Coast.

And way more than that, I hear nothing but mad respect coming from Seattle DJs about Lukki, how he encourages them personally and selflessly supports the Seattle dubstep, grime, and bass community- now that’s my kind of man.

Listen to and download Lukki’s whompcast here.

Thanks to Rockit Science for the whompcast and Ryan Hodgkinson for the sweet gif!

I received a text a couple days ago saying, “Dubstep has taken over Seattle,” probably due to the fact that dubstep was dropping in the main room of Trinity nightclub which is pretty unheard of in the house that house and breaks built. 

Well guess what? Wobbly bass is invading the WORLD and if you want to stay connected to the events, new mixes, and idle chatter, check out westcoastdubstep.com.

Lukki of Shift fame in Seattle has started back up the dubstep forum for all you West Coast dubstep freaks out there; all I can say is that dubstep gets stuck in my head like NOTHING on earth and I whistle it all the time. I’m thinking about going pro and being the West Coast’s first whistling dubstep DJ.

DUBSTEP!

RUSKO @ The Roxy in Los Angeles February 18!

Rusko will be playing The Roxy next Wednesday at the Scion House Party along with Congorock, AC Slater, and 12th Planet. DAMN STRAIGHT.

OH, and it’s free, as long as you RSVP here.

I love me some filthy fucking dubstep, and I love my Scion XB, aka THE STASH BOX:

Camp Don't Be Jealous Rocks the Stash Box

Camp Don't Be Jealous Rocks the Stash Box

And this just in:

Rusko will be playing Seattle too on March 18th, looks like the Shift crew is bringing him to Trinity to rock the hell out of the main room. Click here for info.
