MIXPAK: Jubilee (Release Party), Star Eyes, Burt Fox, Dubbel Dutch, Dre Skull, The Large at The Call Box [10PM/FREE]

Release Party for Jubilee’s single Pull Ova/1-95 single, out this week on Mixpak. It’s a slammin pair of Miami Bass tracks, already receiving play at Fabric, Boiler Room and many more fine outlets. Longtime collaborators Star Eyes (of Trouble&Bass) and Burt Fox guest. Star Eyes will no doubt bring some heavy bass (as Troublemakers are wont to do) and Burt Fox has promised a “super miami set” in tribute to Jubilee’s musical heritage. The rest of the Mixpak crew will be slinging their meanest riddims as well. The Call Box is kinda out there (around the corner from Steel Drums) but with Mixpak’s devoted following, no cover and such a well-liked guest of honor, this one is gonna pack out.

RINSED: Bareskin (Hypercolour – UK), Jamie Antonelli, Dan Wender, Blacky II at secret location tba [11PM-6AM/$10-25]

Rinsed is taking a gamble with this one, bringing out a pair of basically unknown producers to headline. But they’ve become such an institution over the last two years that I’m fairly certain that won’t hurt their turnout. Bareskin (cue Mary Anne Hobbs voice) is just 19 years old but has already played all over the UK and Europe. His tunes are the kind of magical UK club material that can make 3-4am last forever (unnecessary in this instance as Rinsed goes till 6). Syrupy garage house, chopped Rnb vocals, and some warehousey 303s – it’s kinda like Boddika by way of Jacques Greene.

Year of the Future: Honey Jaws, Dis Fig, KeekeeKud at Pianos [1-4AM/FREE]

A newer party devoted to exactly our kind of bass music – the flyer promises garage, footwork, grime, house, dubstep and more – check the promo mix. It’s a weird slot, 1-4am at Pianos, but that also makes for a nice focused party. Resident DJ Dis Fig aka Felichen is definitely a badgyal on the decks – I’ve been lurking her soundcloud quite a bit and every single one of her mixes is on point in terms of both mixing and selection. She seems equally at home with footwork, house/techno and uk bass and hip hop. This is also the DJ debut of Honey Jaws (on right at 1am), who you may recognize from the front fucking row of every good bass show we rep.

Mr Saturday Night at Glasslands [11:30PM/$20]

The friendliest house & techno party ever is trying on Glasslands for size while their normal venue is on hiatus. They’ll be bringing in their own soundsystem and transforming the space to make things suitably special. This one is also sold out, but there will be some tickets at the door. Mr. Saturday has a very devoted following and there’s not a ton going on in terms of house/techno this night, so if you do want to get a ticket you had better outside at 11:15.

Break Science, Paul Basic at Bowery Ballroom [9PM/$15]

Brooklyn-based duo Break Science make some excellent, semi-ragey glitch hop and dubstep. It’s obviously aimed at the Bisco set (especially given their latest release being on Pretty Lights Music) but this also satisfies my craving for Glitch Mob-style west coast turrbocrunk. They’ve been touring their live set heavily for years, so you can expect a pretty tight show.
