May The Bass Be With You

Hi everyone.

Yes that’s right, it’s time to announce the details of the next Bass[sic] party, taking place on Saturday 26th May, once again at The Cornershop in Shoreditch!

Here’s all you need to know…

Bass[sic] – Saturday 26th May 2012 @ The Cornershop, Shoreditch, London

* 8pm-2am – FREE Entry!

* Bass Music * House * Breaks * Electro * Funk *

Featuring the amazing DJing talents of…

* Beat Assassins [Mofo] – Having first hit the scene in 2006, the founders of legendary breakbeat label Mofo Recordings have been tearing up clubland ever since with residencies at Naughty Panda and Metalheadz and appearances at clubs and festivals all over the world. With their unique blend of hip-hop, breaks and electro, which they have dubbed ‘urban electro’, the Beat Assassins have had a string of successful releases, collaborating with the likes of AC Slater, Calvertron, Sigma, Deekline & Wizard and NAPT and garnering support from dance music luminaries such as Groove Armada, Utah Saints, Stanton Warriors, Plump DJs, Dub Pistols and many more! Now a one-man band represented by Jimmy Mofo, Beat Assassins are always moving in a fresh direction with new releases due to hit later this year. We’re proud to have Jimmy playing at Bass[sic] and we look forward to hearing what he’s got in store for us!

* Mjoogoo [Highheels Sessions] – Hailing from Genova, Italy, Mjoogoo (aka Francesco Giuffrida) has long been a stalwart of the London clubbing scene and has DJed worldwide, including at the Miami Winter Music Conference and Burning Man festival to name but two. He’s probably best known for his hugely successful Breakspoll award-nominated radio show, the Highheels Sessions, that used to broadcast every Thursday night on NSB Radio. Whilst being both enigmatic and humourous, the Highheels Sessions always had its finger on the pulse of serious underground dance music and boasted regular guests from the lexicon of breakbeat and tech-funk, including the likes of Dylan Rhymes, Elite Force, Nick Thayer, Madox, Santos, Plaza de Funk, Janette Slack, the list goes on – you name them and they were probably on the show at some stage! We’re very pleased to welcome Mjoogoo to the decks at Bass[sic] and we look forward to getting down to his techy grooves.

Back Once Again With The Ill Behaviour

Hi party people!

We’re proud to announce the details of our next Bass[sic] party taking place on Saturday 31st March, once again at The Cornershop, Shoreditch – mark it in your diary now! This time around we’re very excited to welcome not one but two dance music legends to the Bass[sic] decks! Read on for all the info…

BASS[SIC]

* SATURDAY 31st MARCH 2012 @ THE CORNERSHOP, SHOREDITCH, LONDON

* FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT!

* BASS MUSIC * HOUSE * BREAKS * FUNK

FEATURING THE AMAZING DJING TALENTS OF…

* CUT LA ROC [ROCSTAR] – Lee Potter, aka Cut La Roc, made his name in the hurly-burly big beat days of the late ’90s. Signed to Skint Records, the same label as Norman ‘Fatboy’ Cook, he was responsible for pioneering the big beat sound worldwide alongside Midfield General, Bentley Rhythm Ace and Fatboy Slim himself. Cut La Roc held a four-year residency at the Big Beat Boutique in his hometown of Brighton. He’s toured all around the world, appeared on Top Of The Pops, set a new Guinness world record for DJing with the most decks at once (nine!), and has recorded with vocalists such as Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody.

* FORD AUDIO aka MERKA – Born in deepest darkest Somerset thirty odd years ago, Merka rose to the top of the international breaks scene after the release of his debut album Beserka in 2007. Releases on Re:connect, Big Square, Unstable and many others helped cement his status as a breakbeat maverick resulting in remixes for the likes of the Dub Pistols, Soul of Man and Unique 3. After a sabbatical he’s back, this time under the guise of Ford Audio. Bass[sic] will be the first place to hear Ford Audio and this new beginning for one of the scene’s most forward thinking DJs.

PLUS RESIDENTS…

* REJECTBEATS [DANNY REJECT & KIMPOSSIBLE / NSB RADIO]

* BIG NICK D [BIG SQUARE RECORDS]
