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.

Bass[sic] Chats With Meat Katie

Morning everyone! There’s just over a week to go ’til party time (full details HERE!), so we thought it was a good time to publish the second of our interviews with our special guest DJs.

Ahead of a very rare London appearance, we’ve managed to get superstar DJ, and headliner at Bass[sic] on the 29th of March, to take five minutes out of his busy schedule to answer a few important questions. He’s a tour de force, a runaway tech-funk train, an unstoppable bass behemoth, a dance music legend:- he is of course Meat Katie, aka Mark Pember, and we’re very excited to have him gracing the decks at this month’s Bass[sic]. Best known for his tough techy dancefloor destroyers, Pember has worked with and remixed some of dance music’s biggest household names, from James Zabiela and Deep Dish to Boy George and UNKLE. As well as having three Meat Katie albums under his belt he also supplies the world with some of the finest techno, tech-funk and breaks via his LOT49 imprint. He’s warmed up for The Chemical Brothers, played tunes on the Valve Soundsystem and now you can find out how he likes his eggs…

Bass[sic]: To kick off… You and Peo de Pitte make up one of the biggest lineups we’ve had at Bass[sic], but did you know that you’re probably the baldest lineup too? Of the two of you, who do you think has the LEAST body hair overall?
Meat Katie: Probably me, as I go for the full body wax.

Bass[sic]: For those people who are unfamiliar with you, how would you sum up the Meat Katie sound in only 3 words?
MK: Breakbeat without breaks.

Bass[sic]: Moving onto the dancefloor, which tune are you most looking forward to dropping at Bass[sic] on the 29th of March?
MK: This! What a cheap plug!

Bass[sic]: Of all of the massive tunes that have been released over the years, what is the one tune that you wish you’d written or signed to your label?
MK: The Loops of Fury – Flick A Switch.

Bass[sic]: Now onto the serious questions that everyone’s been dying to know the answers to… How do you prefer your eggs to be cooked?
MK: Poached of course.

Bass[sic]: What’s the last album you bought on CD?
MK: Yesterday I bought The Jim Jones Revue – The Savage Heart

Bass[sic]: Who would win in a jelly wrestling contest:- you or Peo de Pitte?
MK: Me! Peo is a pussy.

Bass[sic]: Which do you prefer:- cats or dogs?
MK: Erm… that’s a tough one… pass!

Bass[sic]: Star Wars or Star Trek?
MK: It used to be Star Wars, now it’s Star Trek.

Bass[sic]: How much horse is there in a standard serving of Meat Katie?
MK: You will have to discover that for yourself.

Bass[sic]: Would you rather be trapped in a room with 1 horse-sized chicken? Or 10 chicken-sized breakbeat purists?
MK: Probably the big chicken horse thing.

Bass[sic]: Do you have a musical guilty pleasure?
MK: Stanton Warriors.

Bass[sic]: What was the last movie you went to see at the cinema?
MK: I’ve not been for a while to tell the truth. Maybe The Hunger Games.

Bass[sic]: Do you have any hidden talents?
MK: All my talents are hidden, in fact I don’t even know what they are!

Bass[sic]: And finally, what are you up to for the rest of this year? Releases, gigs, tours, etc?
MK: I have a residency at Tresor in Berlin at Dangerous Drums. I’m just releasing our latest Take Miami compilation on LOT49. I’ve just signed Electric Soulside & The Rogue Element to LOT49, which I am a bit excited about. I have a Facebook page where I moan a lot about stuff that is not really music related. I have a Gigatools account where I am supposed to have my gig dates, although ironically I always forget to update it. I’m touring the States and Mexico in April and at the end of May/June, also Australia and New Zealand in December. I have also been building a website for the last 15 years… I’m pretty close to getting that finished (as someone else is helping now). I’m thinking of buying another corn snake for my daughter (but a different colour). My friend Andy is getting married in April, I’m definitely going to that. It’s in Colchester. It’s my birthday in September. I can’t think of anything else I have to do at the moment!

Thanks for chatting with us Mark! You can catch him dropping all of his favourite tech-funk bangers at Bass[sic] at the Bells of Shoreditch, East London, on Good Friday, 29th March! Full event details can be found HERE!

To help get you in the mood for the party, check out Meat Katie‘s latest promo mix…

And don’t forget to download Meat Katie‘s latest Re-Rub, absolutely gratis…

And finally, make sure you have a listen to our Easter Podcast, chock full of banging beats and filthy bass!

Right, that’s it! See you down the front at Bells Of Shoreditch next week! We’ll post an event reminder in a few day’s time to make sure you’re kept up to speed!
