First up, to give you a flavour of what to expect from our headline DJs Evil Nine, we’ve got a cracking new podcast from the fiendish ones recorded for Frenchkulture crew MaisonHate. This mixset is chock full of dark, bassy grooves and late night filth. Check it out here…

Next up, we have a garagey-housey-bass-fest from another of our guest DJs, Purge. This is his latest promo mix and it’s a belter! Check it out here…

Of course we also have the official warm up for the party, The Bass[sic] Session, provided by resident DJ Hubie on his Hubie Sounds show on NSB Radio. This time around Hubie was joined in the studio by fellow-Bass[sic] team-member Big Nick D who laid down a set of his typically excellent tech-housey business. You can check out the show right HERE!

And finally… don’t forget to check out our Mixcloud where you can find loads of exclusive mixes and live sets to stream and download, of course all for free.

Right, that’s yer lot! We hope we see you down the front at Bells Of Shoreditch this Friday night! Make sure you come and say hello!

Hubie’s Fearsome Five!

Here’s a new feature on the site dedicated to telling you, our lovely followers, what tunes are currently floating our boats, firing our lasers and filling our collective pants with excitey-goo. Too much info? Ok, maybe we should move on…

To kick off, our loveable resident DJ and pet-kiwi Hubie has given us a list of the five releases that are rocking his CD wallet at the moment. Here they are, in no particular order…

1. Little Roy – Battle For Seattle [Ark] – “I do like a good spot of dub and reggae and, as a true child of the 80s and 90s, I’m also a massive fan of grunge and Nirvana in particular. This album combines the two perfectly with a set of surprisingly excellent Nirvana covers in a rubba-dub-stylee, which never takes itself too seriously.”

2. Kry Wolf & Claude VonStroke – Turbosteppa [Dirtybird] – “This has been around for a while now and no doubt a lot of you will know it well. But at the moment this is the archetypal Tune That Never Leaves My CD Wallet. A guaranteed dancefloor filler with a bassline that makes me want to have its babies.”

3. Phil Kieran – Ghetto Face Place Space [Twin Turbo] – “Another dark, electro-tinged, techy banger, that just screams ‘get your stomp on’! I don’t know where Phil’s been in recent years but if he keeps popping out tunes like this then I will happily buy them on sight.”

4. Tom Rowlands – Nothing But Pleasure [Phantasy] – “Taking a break from writing tunes as part of one of the greatest dance acts of all time, the Chemical Brothers‘ Tom has put out a banging two-track EP on Erol Alkan‘s Phantasy label, the highlight of which, for me, is the epic techno-tastic Nothing But Pleasure. This track builds and builds until you can take no more and, just when you think you’re about to melt into a puddle of anxious techno-goo, it drops causing all who hear it to go full retard in the best possible way. Lovely stuff.”

5. Birdee – We Don’t Fool Around [Moveltraxx] – “This one just oozes summery vibes. And with the sun finally deciding to come out and dance here in the UK, there isn’t a more perfect tune to throw on whilst frolicking outside in your underwear. And as an added bonus, you can grab this tune absolutely gratis via the soundcloud below…”

That’s it from Hubie for now. You can catch him DJing along with the rest of the Bass[sic] residents, as well as some fellas called Evil Nine, Purge and Jung, at Bells Of Shoreditch next week, on Friday 14th June. For more info about this mega party, go HERE!

In the meantime, we intend to continue this feature on a regular basis, as long as we remember to do it (!), with further charts and stuff from our other resident DJs, as well as our guest DJs. Watch this space!

See ya at Bells Of Shoreditch next week!
