Bass[sic] 1st Birthday Bonanza!

It only seems like yesterday that the first Bass[sic] party kicked off in a sweaty basement in Shoreditch. Fresh faced & wet behind the ears residents Hubie, rejectbeats and Big Nick D pushed the soundsystem to the max along side our first ever guests Peo de Pitte and The101Connection. We are all a year older now, crow’s feet & grey hair have made an appearance, but the Bass[sic] vibe is still in full effect.

Come and join us for a first birthday of epic proportions. We’ve secured drinks deals, world class guest DJs and a late licence, so put on your dancing shoes and help us celebrate for free until 4am. We advise you get to The Cornershop early as it’s gonna be rammed!

Here’s all you need to know…

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

Featuring the amazing DJing talents of…

* NAPT [Fool’s Gold / Red Sugar] – Fuelled by low end dynamics, stylish production and powerful beats our first guest’s imaginative musical vision has seen them win prestigious dance awards, top charts and become supported by the some of the world’s top selectors including Annie Mac, A-Trak, Crookers, Laidback Luke, Dillon Francis and Steve Aoki. With releases on A-Trak and Nick Catchdub’s Fool’s Gold, Herve’s Cheap Thrills, AC Slater’s Party Like Us, La Bombe and their very own imprint Red Sugar Records, 2012 has been a fantastic year for NAPT.

* NORMSKI [Hoxton FM / Get Tronic] – For our second guest we have a very exciting birthday treat.

Normski has been the face of many TV shows on BBC2, ITV & Channel 4 but now you can catch him behind the decks at Bass[sic] spinning his brand of turbo charged techy beats. Be sure to catch his weekly radio show, Get Tronic every Friday on Hoxton FM.

* HEDSTATE [Big Square Records] – As an added birthday bonus we have a third guest this month, the Hedstate DJs. A loose collective of producers & DJs, these open minded, forward thinking northerners will grace the Bass[sic] control booth & wow you with their eclectic tune selection.

Hi party people!

It’s taken us almost a week to recover from the party, so many apologies for the delay, but we’d just like to make a big shout out to everyone who came down to The Cornershop last Saturday. You helped our fourth party go off with a massive bang, so many thanks, we couldn’t have done it without you!

Extra big ups to our fantastic guest DJs Beat Assassins and Mjoogoo who absolutely smashed things left right and centre and also to our lovely resident DJs who warmed the crowd up perfectly.

I know we keep promising to add pics to our Gallery, don’t worry, we’re working on it! Check back soon!

We hope you can join us for our next party on Saturday 28th of July – mark it in your diaries, it’s gonna be another big one! Further details, including the full lineup, will be announced soon so watch this space!

Nice one gang!

Hi gang!

We just wanted to say another big thanks to all of you who came down to The Cornershop on Saturday night and helped make our third Bass[sic] party such a rawring success! Also massive big ups to our excellent guest DJs, Mr Cut La Roc and the man-like Merka, aka Ford Audio, for absolutely smashing the place to pieces! A notable mention should also go to our ever-reliable resident DJs who, together with our guests, formed a very juicy bass music sandwich, I’m sure you’d agree!

We’re still sifting through our photos from the night, they should be up very soon, so keep an eye on our Gallery page for updates.

The next party is on Saturday 26th of May at The Cornershop, mark it in your diaries! Full lineup and details coming soon, watch this space!

Extra special big ups to Plaza de Funk, Collins303 & DJ Ryu for their excellent sets and of course to the resident DJs too!

We’ve updated the Gallery page with all the pics from the party so make sure you check them out!

Once again we’d like to apologise for the venue ‘complications’, but I’m sure you’ll agree they didn’t seem to affect us at all as the venue was rammed with happy smiling ravers all night long! However you can rest assured that we’ll be back where we belong, downstairs in the Cornershop rave-cave/basement, with another huge lineup, next time! Watch this space for all the updates 😉

Cheers everyone!
