It is very, very rare that you will see me posting anyone else’s fliers on here besides DA family. Trouble + Bass is extended family tree though and I am just personally excited about this event. I am a big big fan of Dexplicit‘s Bassline/Niche House output in the past few years, bringing the energy and colors of grime into a 4×4 format.Â If you are in NYC you are a FOOL to miss this.Â I also have no qualms promoting this because Dex himself is such a nice friendly dude.Â We’ve only spoken over the internet but his niceness comes through.Â I like people like that and want them to win.Â The world is so full of assholes, the people who aren’t deserve singling out.
Also check /Ruptures WFMU radio show Jan. 23rd for an exclusive mix by Dexplicit full up with unreleased dubs, as well as (I think) an interview.
Thanks to everyone who came down to 205 last thursday. Bigups to Bloody Social and to DJ Jaclyn for letting me do a surprise DJ set when her laptop crashed after our 77Klash/Iron Shirt set. Bigup to Frank151 and Circa for putting the thing together, it was fun. Shouts to RockersNYC fam, Oplus, Jahdan’s Dad, all the fine hipster girlies and everyone singing along during our set.
This is what it looked like:
And this is what we looked like (fresh to death as usual). I’m in the background in the DJ booth.
FIESTA SOOT: a label party thrown by DJ /rupture’s Soot imprint hits Manhattan on October 5
On Friday October 5, a Soot Records & Funkworthy FM present FIESTA SOOT, featuring international soundboys DJ /rupture (Barcelona/Brooklyn), Maga Bo (Rio de Janeiro), Filastine (w/ guest cellist Brent Arnold), and Manhattan’s own Matt Shadetek. The Funkworthy crew will install a proper reggae soundsystem with enough booty-friendly BASS to handle hot new ragga, dubstep, hiphop, grime, baile funk, world beat, and whatever else we use to get things poppin’.
Soot Records specializes in ass-shaking polyrhythms, cosmopolitan bass, and local collabos, with an ear for the global south. New material by Ghislain Poirier, Rupture, and Maga Bo is slated for fall release. Busy touring schedules mean that this lineup is a special one, with artists traveling from Brazil, Spain, and the West Coast.
Fiesta Soot. Friday Oct. 5
Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery @ Bleeker St, NYC.
10PM-late. $5 before midnight, $8 after.
