San Francisco- Tonight the streets are going to be shaking from the return of the Formation Records camp and Compression SF’s WODNB Sessions at Club Six.
The lineup is not the full on WODNB experience, but with SS, Bailey and Rollz alongside SF’s own badboy DJ’s 2Cents, Lukeino, Sharp, and The Heights and Colonel MC holding down the mic duties, Club Six will be throbbin’ well past closing time (4AM that is…)!
For the DnB heads, they’re bringing out Twisted Individual (Grid UK) along with OG West Coast bad boy DJ R.A.W. (Junglist Platoon LA) in the headline slots along with local faves 2Cents (Compression SF), Lukeino (Sublife Recs SF) and Noah (Primitive Science SF) & microphone support by none other than Colonel MC.
For the Dubsteppers, get ready for the Scion West Coast Dub invasion featuring 2 of my favorite DJs in the game, 12th Planet (SMOG LA) & 6Blocc (Lo Dubs LA)! If you’ve never seen these guys throw down in the showdown, then get ready for some seriously SICK dubplates and heavy duty party rockin’ selections from both of them. Local support provided by Knorsq (Bombadub LA), Pawn (SMOG LA/SF), Salokin (Rukkuz Muzik SF), Vinja (VinjaMusic.net SF) and mic support by Zezo One and MC Child.
San Francisco- Local bad boys of bass, Compression SF & Rukkuz Muzik are back again to melt faces with a DnB & Dubstep lineup that only they can bring!
For the Junglists: 2009 DnB Awards Winner, Original Sin is headed to our stomping grounds alongside Canada’s DJ Maniak to drop some seriously heavy business on the 415. Local faves 2Cents, DJ Sharp, Colonel MC & Zezo One will be providing support for the evening.
“Original Sin is the new production alias of Adam Tindall (one half of the now defunct Generation Dub/G Dub/Double Zero). Original Sin’s “Don’t Be Silly”, “D for Danger” and “Ra! (Original Sin Remix)” have helped him establish his individual production style. Two songs have been released under Adam’s second alias (Killa Hurt) on Frontline Records. In late 2009, Original sin released his first album ‘Grow Your Wings’ which was critically acclaimed by the likes of Grooverider and DJ Hype. In 2009 Original Sin was awarded Best New Artist in DNB awards… Thanks to these many acheivements. Original Sin has now become one of the leading names in the drum and bass scene.
Now he’s teamed up with his girl, DJ Maniak, who’s been rocking the Canadian seen for many years and now on the up and up with her production and DJ skills…”
If you haven’t already, you need to go out and get those pre-sales HERE and we’ll see everyone out there!
Miami- PHEW! We made it once again through a week of beats, bass, lots of beer and plenty of bootyshaking good times! One thing was for certain this year, Dubstep is here to stay and the laundry list of events that we made it to is a testament of just that. From Smog vs. Basshead to Dubstep Massive to Dub & Bass 2 and every other event in between, the hard hitting wobbly goodness was pumping out of speakers at almost every venue as you walked down Collins.
Seeing B. Rich and Udachi just absolutely MURDER their sets at Dub & Bass 2 was probably the highlight of the dubstep sets that we got to see, with DZ coming in a close 2nd, hitting the dancefloor with drop after drop of bangin’ tracks. We hear that our friend 12th Planet takes the grand prize for his performance at the Annie Mac DJ party, but unfortunately we missed it, but if any of his past performances are any indicator, then I have no doubt that this holds true!
For all the Junglists- The World of Drum and Bass was by far the best DnB event of the conference, 3 rooms packed with fans of breakbeat culture across the spectrum. The lineup was packed with top notch DJs and MCs, but for us, the 2 standout sets of the night belong to the Digital Soundboy Artist Showcase featuring Shy FX, Breakage & B-traits holding it down on the UK side & 2Cents (DJ Aye~n & DJ Mal) from Compression SF representing the best of the Stateside movement.
We wanted to make it out to Smog Vs. Basshead, Future Sound of Breaks, Techosluts, Bang! Bang! & a ton of other events, but unfortunately couldn’t cover the events and juggle performance schedules, so if any of you out there have reviews/details you think we should include from any of the events from this year’s WMC, please shoot us a note: firstname.lastname@example.org
San Francisco- The local bad boys of bass, Compression SF are back this month with another installment of face-melting good times over at 103 Harriett!

Holy f***ing shiite, it’s the DUKE of drum and bass, BRYAN GEE. As head honcho of V RECORDINGS, BRYAN GEE discovered and signed everyone from RONI SIZE to KRUST to DJ DIE to DJ MARKY from Brazil.
As a DJ, though, GEE proves time and again that nobody DJs drum and bass as well as him. The man is a motherf**king drum and bass WIZARD. A larger-than-life, stoned to the bejeesus belt, upside-down NINJA of ultimate bass funkification. And just like he’s been rocking his legendary London club night MOVEMENT for the last decade, GEE is coming to COMPRESSION once again to remind everyone of just how that sh*it is done.
