SF THURS NOV 11TH - BRAP DEM! vs. NIGHT KITCHEN



Prepare for a double dose of hot skewered beats! On November 11, 2010, nightlife luminaries Brap Dem! and The Night Kitchen bring two of the most fascinating names in dance music together under one roof at the newly minted, sonically superior Public Works.



DJ SEGA - MAD DECENT - PHILLY
Philadelphiaʼs finest, DJ Sega, AKA Robert Taylor Jr., finally returns to the Bay with his inimitable mutant strain of Baltimore Club. First known for such dancefloor rumblers as “Woo-Hah!” and “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Sega now crafts mixtapes for Mad Decent and adds his Philly flair to remixes for the likes of Rye Rye, Buraka Som Sistema and Mates Of State.


DJ RASHAD - PLANET MU - CHICAGO
Chicago Juke, AKA Footwork, has been on the tip of everyoneʼs tongue lately, so who better to introduce the sound to California than its godfather, DJ Rashad! Earning his stripes with countless juke and ghettotech productions over the last 10 years, Rashad Harden forged his own hypercrunk variation on the sound for recent releases on DJ Godfatherʼs Juke Trax label. Having hypnotized UK tastemakers such as Headhunter and Night Slugs, heʼs been picked up by Planet Mu and is dropping footwork beats around the globe. Always versatile, Rashad is keen to balance fresh otherworldly flavors with his hometown brew of bootyshakers. Keep an eye on nastysonix.com for free DJ Rashad music downloads to come!

Additional incendiary beats provided by SF bass pranksters Staypuft DJ and Sam Supa. With an immense Funktion One sound system and stellar reputation to boot, Public Works is the perfect setting for such a momentous occasion. Footwork descends upon San Francisco—dress to sweat.

Be sure to RSVP for discounted entry!

The State of Play In the Bay and Beyond

Its been an interesting summer so far for Dubstep and Bass music in general. There must be 10times the amount of producers and djs playing and making Dubstep music worldwide and in the USA it seems the entire country is at it. The harder sound has caught on big time. We already knew this was the case last year. Now its everywhere. Beaport charts are showing a steady combination of heavy heavy midrange monster tunes the occasional deeper track and new releases by the classic Dubstep Dons from the UK. Bigger festivals are awash with mosh pits to Dubstep. Dubstep goons are everywhere armed with Ableton, bad you tube rips, bootleg tunes and Beatport top 100 purchases. Wheres the Dub?

This summer in San Francisco the dances have so many new faces younger kids and younger crowds and the hard sound is running the show. New weeklies are allowing anyone to be able to go out to dance to "Dubstep" everyday of the week period. All these events are all showcasing the filth and fury of the newer sounds. Older promoters like Redline, Soundpieces, Surefire, Big Up and my own Brap Dem! are still throwing the occasional big show and monthlies with great headliner talent from all over but with diverse fromats. Crowds have been thin and fickle this summer and it seems a bit less attended then last summer for sure.

I personally still play Dubstep and get tons of fresh tunes but have to dig for better tunes. I am also pushing deeper and also slower bpms. I am just really feeling different sounds right now. the music is bathed in funky ghostly deeper minimal bass laden riddims with house elements and also north of 150 bpm oddness that has really caught my ear.

Right now San Francisco has a few great alternatives to straight all Dubstep nights. I personally will never do an all Dubstep event unless there is good reason to and the present and future is all about all formats in my opinion. Below I've listed the events that I have been attending this summer for my post Dubstep hangover that are worth checking out. Not to say there aren't any good all Dubstep events there are tons (check this Facbook group) but not everyone is looking for a bassface each and every time they go out:

ICEE HOT - a monthly at 222 Hyde in Sf that showcases 2-step, funky, garage, house, bass, tropical, future, and great pizza. Residents are Ghosts on Tape, Low Limit, Disco Shawn, Rollie Fingers.

CHANGE THE BEAT - a weekly party at SOM bar in the Mission. Great diverse local and international talent playing Beat, Glitchy, Lazery, Hiphop, Future bass, Funky, Dubstep and other hip-Hop bass driven music. Residents are Dials, Salva, Centipede.

SOUNDPEICES - any party this crew throws is fire period. The Crew of Sparkuhl, Dials, Bogl and Sarah really do a kick ass job of presenting something fresh and new each and every time.

Of course my own Surefire Sound we have moved to a Bi-Monthly format starting in August with Scuba.

Dubstep like D&B will never die it will continue to mutate and whatever event and environment it is played in will always be receptive to it. The one thing this summer that reminded me what I love about Dubstep is the new DMZ LP. This lp has been on repeat next to my bed almost nightly programming me with serene waves of good dub and bass and the title Return to Space is so crucial.

Tune of the Week 02-14-10: DJUNYA & GEMMY - SOUR D



Local SF badman Djunya collaborated a bit ago with Gemmy on a big big tune called SOUR D. This tune can be heard on Djunya's My Space in the player. Check out his latest BIG UP MAG Mix to hear not only a great snapshot of Djuyna's awesome meditative selection(which also includes forthcoming on BRAP DEM! Rec FULL CIRCLE) but this tune as track #11. SF bass weight meet Bristol purpz to create the very kind tune SOUR D. Currently a dub Djunya, mentioned this will probably end up on his LP. Go check it and find out why this is my tune of the week!!

Tune of the Week 02-06-10: XI - SUPER WHATEVER



XI is straight murking it on the release tip right now. With new tunes finally out on
Immerse Recordings, Formant Recordings and forthcoming on Surefire Sound, 2010 will be a big year for new XI material.

Recently on the Loetech Sub FM Radio show XI has been showing off his new tunes. I'll save the Bombaman rant for another post (because he is killing it as well!!). The tune that caught my ear and I can't get out of head this week is an odd one called SUPER WHATEVER. Check the XI My Space first track in the player. The track falls somewhere in the deeper, dark-tech , dubstep vibe. It swings and gltiches out but holds a steady beat that keeps the groove good and even happy. Speed up strings and odd guitar elements add to the atmospherics. Don't know when it will come out. This tune can be found in VIP form on Alex Incyde's new DUB WAR Podcast.

Be sure to check out a recent XI Soinic Router Mix to check the technique.

Tune of the Week 01-27-10: RSD - NAKED MARIO CART

This week RSD's fantastic deep cheeky bass roller NAKED MARIO CART has been occupying my ear holes. the last time I heard it played it was by RSD himself at Surefire Sound. It has just released on promo on Black box Records. RSD from Smith and Mighty, Bristol UK's finest Dub son commits 2 takes of this fine tune to wax. A bit of a departure from RSD's ususal Dub soaked style, non the less it brings the steady boom.
