Thanks & Apologies

Hi everyone!

First of all we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came down to The Cornershop for Bass[sic] last Saturday. It was great to see all of you and we hope you had a great time. We’d also like to say a belated big ups to our guest DJs Pimpsoul and Goffrey who, despite a few minor technical problems, managed to bang out excellent sets and kept everyone dancing ’til kick out time.

Speaking of kick out time… please accept our sincerest apologies for the early closing time on Saturday. Unfortunately, the venue had some unexpected licencing issues that weekend and as a result we had to close earlier than usual. We realise that there were a number of people queuing outside who were unable to get into, or re-enter, the venue too. Once again that was down to the unexpected temporary licencing issues and we apologise for this.

Anyway, we have been reassured that everything will be back to normal for the next party, on 24th November. Mark it in your diary now because it’s our 1st birthday party and it’s going to be even bigger and better than ever! Full details will be announced soon, so watch this space!

Cheers!

  • And if you’d like to listen to Ben & Lex‘s live set in the context of a funky radio show, you can do so by downloading this week’s Hubie Sounds show, originally broadcast on NSB Radio! As well as that live set, Hubie spins a cracking selection of bass-heavy bangers including music by Public Enemy, Boys Noize, Stanton Warriors and Plump DJs.

Pimpin’ Party Time!

Oi oi Bass[sic]ers!

It’s about that time we started talking about the September instalment of our brilliant little FREE party. It’s on the last Saturday in September with another pair of excellent special guests spinning bass-tastic bombs to keep your booties bouncing ’til the wee small hours!

Here’s all you need to know…

Bass[sic] – Saturday 29th September 2012 @ The Cornershop, Shoreditch, London

* 8pm-late – FREE Entry!

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

Featuring the amazing DJing talents of…

* Pimpsoul [Bomb Strikes] – First up we have the thinking man’s ghettofunker, Pimpsoul. We’re very lucky to have him gracing the Bass[sic] turntables as he’s a DJ who has taken his skills to venues across the globe to entertain audiences as far afield as Canada and Romania. Fully armed with a crate full of his own bombastic re-edits and mash ups, Pimpsoul grabs the party by its horns and stamps his name on its ass cheeks like a cowpoke with a bad temper. This flat cap sporting English gent is a genuine club DJ with the power to drop the bass and watch the bodies fly around the room. We can’t wait!

* Goffrey [NuSkoolBreaks.co.uk] – Backing the great man up we have everyone’s favourite back street Betty, the legend that is Goffrey. No stranger to rocking the rave, Goffrey will treat us to his eclectic mix of breaks, house, techno & big beat. So watch out, he’s gonna blow your back doors off!
