Bass Music at CMJ: The Wompblog Guide

While CMJ is traditionally a buzzfest for indie bands, there’s always some tight electronic music to be found as well.

Weekend Forecast: Traxman + DJ Deeon, Egyptrixx, Bonobo, Christian Martin, Jubilee, Gerd

FRIDAY, APRIL 12

TOP PICK  LIT CITY RAVE: DJ Deeon, Traxman, Dubbel Dutch, J-Cush, Durban at The Rink [10PM/$12]
Lit City is back in NYC for the first time since New Years, and boy are they going hard. First off, it’s the NYC debut of DJ Deeon, who has been pushing Chicago’s ghetto house sounds since ‘94 – he’s one of the true originators and innovators. But they’re also bringing out Traxman, another Chicago footwork legend. His Da Mind of Traxman LP on Planet Mu last year was a shoe-in for year end lists, and a turning point in visibility for the sounds of chicago footwork. Also on the bill, Mixpak’s Dubbel Dutch, who knows a thing or two about makin motherfuckers dance at high tempos, and Lit City residents J-Cush and Durban. Back at 285 Kent – bring earplugs, it will get loud.

Egyptrixxx, Evan Michael, T’Angelo, Judge Wise at Cameo Gallery [12AM/$7]
Toronto’s Egyptrixxx is back in NYC, with his “celestial club music”. Pulling from techno, drone and even pop motifs, Egyptrixxx obliterates your expectations of what can be done with a 4×4 format. Expect an extremely danceable set full of unexpected textures, tension and a complete lack of trendy bullshit.

Christian Martin (Dirtybird) plus Chris Love, AB Logic, Chris Patrick + Joe Pompeo at Cielo [10PM/$15]
Christian Martin is one of the founders of Dirtybird, the label that has single handedly fomented a San Francisco funky tech house revival. Supported by the SOUP crew, who normally hold it down at Sullivan Room, this is a party for people serious about gettin their dance on.

BONOBO, Nickodemus, Wiseacre at Public Assembly [12AM/$10]
The demigod of downtempo, Bonobo, is playing 2 shows tonight in support of his new LP, The North Borders. The first, at Webster Hall, is totally sold out, but he has a late DJ set at Public Assembly with limited tickets available at the door. I’ve had the pleasure of catching Bonobo twice in the last year, and his DJ sets are energetic and danceable, infused with his uber-smooth jazz and trip hop sensibility, but still sounding totally current for a 2013 dancefloor.
