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!

Bass[sic] Is Back At The Bells

Hi gang! We’re pleased to announce the details of our next big party taking place on Friday 14th June, once again at the Bells Of Shoreditch in East London.

This time around we’ve got a late 6am licence and some proper legends headlining in the form of macabre beatsmiths Evil Nine, making a rare London appearance with their unique combination of electro, beats and bass. Also on the decks we have one of the biggest talents bubbling under in London clubland at the moment, Purge. And completing the lineup we have a proper party starter in Jung, as well as our ever reliable residents Hubie, Rejectbeats and Big Nick D.

We’re also pleased to welcome back the VJ stylings of Psychomonkey and Mr Faff.

Here’s all the party info…

Bass[sic] – Friday 14th June 2013 @ the Bells Of Shoreditch, East London

* Bass Music * Dirty House * Tech House * Breaks *

Featuring the amazing DJing talents of…

EVIL NINE [For Lovers] – Brighton-based duo Evil Nine (or Pat Pardy and Tom Beaufoy to their respective mums) have been producing dark, twisted beats for 14 years now. Their early days signed to Adam Freeland’s trail blazing Marine Parade stable saw them produce one of the great debut dance music albums in You Can Be Special Too – a truly unique collection of macabre beats and basslines, tied together with some of the most talented rhymers the underground hip hop scene had to offer. This record, as well as a raft of excellent singles and remixes, led to the duo becoming one of the hottest properties in underground dance music. They have since produced a second album, the zombie-themed They Live and they are currently working on a third long-player, due to hit later this year on their own label, For Lovers.

PURGE [Nasty FM] – Also sharing this exciting lineup is one of the hottest up-and-coming talents of London’s underground bass music scene, Purge. Having rubbed shoulders with the superstars of the infamous Fabric nightclub, Purge has gone on to become a special talent in his own right, spinning an up front selection of the finest bass music, garage and house to packed dancefloors all over the UK and Europe. Purge is no stranger to the world of underground radio too, hosting his own show on Marcus Nasty’s Nasty FM. He’s also been busy in the studio, working on his debut EP Sandstorm, due to hit this summer on Berlin’s ITAKA.

JUNG [Bass Ache] – We’re also proud to announce a third special guest, the very talented Jung. Also known as Stacey McDonald, he has played for Chew The Fat at the legendary End nightclub, warming up for the likes of The Rogue Element, and will bring his unique blend of fresh bass music and classic breaks and jungle to the decks for a rare and exciting London appearance.
