Two fresh mixes from Doctor Jeep, Mixpak.fm and EVR Gold River Show

Doctor Jeep is the future of club music. He’s got the whole heavy bass/rave throwback/jackin thing down to a science. Every track this dude makes just absolutely slays – the only problem with his tunes is that you can’t play anything after them, except another Doctor Jeep track. You’ve probably heard his collab with Tony Quattro,

WOMPLIST 55: Reconstrvct, Grenier & XI, Ben UFO, Goth Trad, Boxcutter, Taste Tester & Hydrabadd, Mess Kid


DESCENT: Grenier, XI, Congi (US debut), Prism, Blysk at House of Yes [10PM/$20-25]
Biggest lineup yet from the Descent crew. This is the US debut of Congi, a dubstep producer from the UK, whose jazzy inflections and laid back vibes will delight anyone who enjoys Author or Phaeleh. Also headlining are future bass pioneer XI and Grenier / DJG – who also happen to be old friends, and will be doing a very special b2b. I’ve been in love with XI beats ever since I heard his scene-stealing remix of Sepalcure. And Grenier? Oh gosh. His set at reconstrvct earlier this year was one of the best I’ve ever seen; a brilliant, flawless, relentlessly energized all vinyl set of all styles of bass music. His free album, VOIDS III, is easily one of the best LPs of this year. Warming it up will be Descent founder and resident Blysk, and Boston’s dubstep virtuoso, Prism. Hit up our feature page on this event for set times and a 20% discount code on advance tickets!

Percussion Lab x Rudimentary Records: Boxcutter (Planet Mu ✈ Ireland), Enoe, Archie Pelago, Seafloor, Braille at Cameo Gallery [12AM/$7-10]
God bless Percussion Lab. In addition to hosting one of the best mix repositories on the internet, they’re always booking the most interesting producers. This time around it’s Planet Mu’s Boxcutter, comin all the way from Ireland. Boxcutter’s early production was a worthy descendent of Aphex or Squarepusher; glitchy – at times abrasive – IDM with undeniably soul. But his scope is vast, everything from broken 2-step to Bonobo-esque funk. Opening is our favorite cello-sax-dj trio, Archie Pelago (debuting their ableton PUSH live set) and the Perclab regulars.

RECONSTRVCT 2ND ANNI: Youngsta, V.I.V.E.K., Amit, Surprise Guest, Kahn and Neek, Joe Nice, True Nature at the 1896 [10PM/$25-60]
I don’t think there’s ever been a bigger dubstep lineup in NYC. Reconstrvct has become an NYC institution in the last 2 years, raising the bar to a level no other bass music events can touch (tho certainly it has inspired many to try, and that’s a good thing). More than the events, Reconstrvct has built a community who are dedicated and inspired by this music. Scores of folks are bussing and flying in to NYC for this show because there’s just nothing else in the US like this. Infinite props to Luke, Scott and Joe for creating a night that truly transcends partying and has become a place as holy as anything can be in this day and age.

Oy, this lineup. Lets start with Youngsta – one of the most renounced dubstep djs, his rinse.fm show has a fanatical following, winning him Best Dj in the dubstepforum awards two years in a row now. His energetic presence and peerless mixing are unmistakable. V.I.V.E.K. Is a true giant of the scene – he crushed it at the first anniversary. He’s made too many huge tunes to even name but both sides of his latest single (and the first on his new label, System Music) Asteroids/Over My Head has long since passed anthem status. When that drops on Saturday, I’ll put money on at least 2 wheel ups.

Kahn and Neek are two of the illest producers in grime – Backchat is honestly one of the sickest tunes I’ve heard in the last year (and Chevy aint far behind). Apparently they’re getting a TWO HOUR set, so prepare to get deep. Now Amit’s a newer name to me but his tune Acid Trip has also become a reconstrvct anthem. Oh AND there’s a special surprise guest – last year that turned out to be PINCH. This year? I have a guess. Add to that the two greatest residents ever (True Nature warming it up and Joe Nice finishing it out) and a truly massive private warehouse venue, and you’ve got yrself a proper 2 year anniversary for our favorite party.

NICE RENDER: Taste Tester, Hydrabadd, No Eyes, The Orator, Kuato, Knomad at Actor’s Playhouse [11PM/$5-10]
Taste Tester and Hydrabadd are beat makers from Atlanta, currently on tour (check out the sweet promo mix). They’ve collaborated on a bunch of tracks, taking rnb samples and neon arpeggios and mashing them with cloud rap beats, Jersey Club, and juke. Listen to this remix they did and tell me you aren’t in love with whatever the fuck this music is. Joining them are No Eyes, with some more abstract/ambient beats, organizers The Orator and Kuato who will bring a diverse spread of bass, and personal favorite Knomad (founder of OnTheSly). All this tasty bass music, on a funktion-1 system for $5? You betcha.

HOUSE-O-MATIC: Contakt, Space Jam, C-Sick, Mayster & Ben Steidel (Lemonade) at Over The Eight [10PM/FREE]
Last minute house music party from the Turrbo crew, with longtime homie Ben of Lemonade. I’ve been saying for a minute now that Over the Eight is a total gem of a venue; a low-key spot with a great back room – killer sound, and a spacious wooden dancefloor.

BROKE CITY: The Range, D. Gookin (dj set), Sleepyhead, Figgy, Dunes at Bizarre Bushwick [10PM/FREE]
The Range is a super ridiculously dope footwork producer, who has released stuff on Donkey Pitch and Astro Nautico. Been killing it for a few years now. D.Gookin does weirdo pop singersongwriter ish, but will be spinning a DJ set – plus the residents here totally rule and it’s free.

ULTRADEMON, SSION (dj set), Gatekeeper (dj set) at Glasslands [11:30PM/$5]
Ultrademon is known as the godfather of Seapunk – wait, don’t leave! While the internet aesthetic might be goofy, the beats kinda rule. Gatekeeper and SSION too – all three are unpredictable but thoroughly enjoyable – which is exactly what we love about Brooklyn’s psychadelic electronic scene right now.

 Verboten pres Trouble & Bass vs Dirtybird: Kode9, Salva, Worthy, J.Phlip, DKDS, Drop the Lime, Star Eyes, Strange VIP, Tony Quattro at Sullivan Room [10PM/$20]
THIS. Probably the best lineup we’ve seen all summer. Dirtybird is doing more than anyone to keep stateside house music funky, vital and booty-tastic. J.Phlip (mix) and Worthy (mix) will be out from California repping them. The Trouble & Bass crew always kills it – they basically define ‘killing it’. Especially that young buck Tony Quattro – last T&B party, he and Dr. Jeep had the dancefloor WILIN before 11PM. And you know we love DKDS.

Oh, and a few other huge special guests like Salva (fresh off his BBC residency) and Kode9 (he runs this label Hyperdub, you mighta heard of it). Both are certified bass music geniuses. So that’s, uh, FOUR headliners, and the best damn support lineup in NYC. Check out our full feature on the event here for all the info, a buttload of mixes and set times (if we can get em).

Braille, Max Pearl, Volvox, John Barera at Bossa Nova Civic Club [10PM/FREE]
House and techno in a low key setting from a cast of really interesting selectors. Braille is half of Sepalcure but also a resident at Percussion Lab. Max Pearl is editor of Cluster Mag, John Barera runs Supply Records. Don’t really know what Volvox’s deal is but the name tends to show up in the more psychedelic company so I’m guessing he or she isn’t boring.

Not only is his mixing “techno-tight” but his selections are always a paragon of what is relevant in contemporary dance music. Support from a familiar and talented cast of Lit City fam and allies.
