Verboten x Trouble & Bass: Shadow Child, Worthy, Plastician, Curses!, Star Eyes, DKDS, Doctor Jeep at The Paper Box [10PM/$20]
3 massive headliners and an allstar support lineup make this one of the best bass music events this year. Shadow Child has been steadily defining the intersection of house and bass ever since his anthemic “String Thing” started popping up in mixes nearly 2 years ago. Since then, he’s been cranking out amazing remixes and originals, and his rinse.fm show consistantly highlights the most exciting new voices in house & bass music.
Plastician and Trouble & Bass go way back – he played at their 4th and 5th year anniversaries, they put out his Start, Select, Reset EP in 2012. Both have consistantly been early supporters of a lot of unique voices in grime, dubstep and heavy bass. Plastician has been there since the beginning of grime and dubstep, starting with pirate radio in London in the early 2000s. He’s still one of the strongest voices in the genre, between his rinse.fm show and the long-running Sounds that Speak volumes mix series (the next one comes out in May, last year’s is after the jump).
Worthy is a key member of the Dirtybird family (also home to Shadow Child) for several years now, but last year he really became a household name with his ubiquitous tune “Dip”. Last time he was out here for the first T&B/Verboten party at Sullivan Room. He kept bodies moving fervently until late with his “future booty-house”
But what really makes this a first-class party is the banging support lineup. Curses! is the dark-techno alias of T&B cofounder Drop The Lime. He recently started another label with DKDS, Safer at Night as an outlet for all that sexy afterhours stuff. DKDS you probably know from their opening sets at Dark Disco, but they also hold down countless late night parties around the city, and just put out their first single on Trouble & Bass (stream it after the jump). Star Eyes, another core member of T&B, always throws down smoldering sets packed with grime, acid and heavy bass. Maybe if we’re lucky she’ll even break out some old school DnB sounds from her early junglist days. And finally, our boy Doctor Jeep. We’ve been telling you how fantastic this dude is since before he ever had a proper release out, and now he’s about to drop his second record with T&B (the ravey Vortex EP – hear it after the jump)
SHADOW CITY: Rogue Vogue, Tony Quattro, La Fitz at Glasslands [11:30PM/$8-15]
Shadow City is a long-running UK party, focusing on forward thinking garage, techno and bass, with a special emphasis on vibes. Couldn’t be happier to have some more of that in NYC – welcome to your new home guys!
BROKE CITY: Cream Dream, Sleepyhead, Figgy, Dunes, Chris Patrick at Bizarre Brooklyn [10PM/FREE]
A house-centric special edition of Broke City with affiliate Cream Dream guesting, and SOUP’s Chris Patrick also joining the residents. You won’t find a better free party in all the five boros.
GHE20G0TH1K x QWEENBEAT: MikeQ, Byrell the Great, Venus X, $hayne, False Witness, Special Guests at RSVP for location [10PM/$10-15]
Discovery x Mutual Dreaming: DJ Technics, Beautiful Swimmers, Aurora Halal (live), Free Magic & Faso at Glasslands [11:30PM/$10-15]
Bmore legend DJ Techniques headlines the collaborative party along with euphoric retro house from Beautiful Swimmers. Discovery residents Free Magic & Faso will bring the opening vibes, while Mutual Dreaming brings their usual otherworldly decor and a live hardware set from founder Aurora Halal.
ECHO CHAMBER: Tour de Force ft Brother Culture (Battle Cry LP Launch), Alpha Steppa (Steppas – LDN), Queen Majesty, Bakir b2b Yola at The Paperbox [10PM/$15-20]
We’ve been supporting Dub Stuy’s parties from Day 1, but now we’re thrilled to also support them as a record label. This fourth edition of Echo Chamber will also serve as a release party for the first LP on the DUB STUY Label, Tour De Force’s Battle Cry LP (hear it after the jump). They’ll be performing with frequent UK-based collaborator, MC Brother Culture. Also from the UK, Alpha Steppas will be bringing their rootswise dubstep that fits perfectly with the Dub Stuy aesthetic. Queen Majesty will bring her deep crates of dub 45s to warm things up. This will also be the debut of Grand Ancestor Sound, a collaboration between TUBA’s Bakir and DC’s Yola (who runs the DC dub/step party and radio show Computa Age).
Cibo Matto, Buffalo Daughter at Brooklyn Bowl [8PM/$20]
A second chance to catch CIbo Matto, if you missed their sold out Valentines show at LPR!
