The organizations and artists behind this event:
Sound Liberation Front, part of the team behind the acclaimed Dub Invasion Festival in 2011, presents a launch party for Dub-Stuy Records, a new Brooklyn-based record label dedicated to promoting progressive bass music and sound system culture in NYC and beyond. The launch party welcomes back the London-based MC Brother Culture to debut a new musical project called Tour de Force. Supporting will be some of the top names from the NYC progressive bass music scene ranging from reggae dub to dubstep and tropical bass with Joe Nice (Dub War), True Nature (Reconstrvct), Matt Shadetek (Dutty Artz), Atropolis (Dutty Artz), and Dave Hahn (Dub is a Weapon). The event will also feature the highly anticipated debut of the “Tower of Sound”, an iconic 10,000 watt sound system custom-built and engineered specifically for bass music.
Tour de Force aka TDF Sound System is a Brooklyn-based live electronic dub group formed by producer Double Tiger and DJ Q-Mastah. TDF’s sound blends traditional dub reggae with elements of dubstep, hip-hop and other bass heavy genres. They are currently working on a debut EP to be released on Dub-Stuy Records, featuring established artists such as reggae legend Luciano and veteran MC Brother Culture, who has collaborated with the Prodigy, Adrian Sherwood and Mungo’s Hifi.
Creator of the infamous Dub War parties in NYC, Joe Nice is universally recognized as the ambassador of the dubstep sound in North America and has been instrumental in the global growth and success of dubstep for over a decade. Sharing a residency with Joe Nice at Reconstrvct, True Nature is one of the bearers of the NYC dubstep scene and has held his own as a DJ alongside dubstep stalwarts.
