SHELTER (SF) bringing Squake (Bassdrive), DJ Sharp + more 11.09.10

San Francisco- One of the city’s longest running weekly DnB events, Shelter, is kicking off November by bringing DJ Squake up from down south in Nashville TN, along with local support from DJ Sharp (Compression SF) and I’ll be handling mic duties for the evening.

Squake originally came up in San Diego but moved out to Tennessee back in 2005 and in ’08, he teamed up with Hunter of Legion to start the “Represent” Drum & Bass weekly in Nashville. In the Summer of 09′, Squake launched his weekly show “Represent Radio” on Bassdrive, which he hosts every Friday from 5-7PM CST.

While he spends most of his time doing A&R and Design, he has been busy in the studio working on his Debut EP since being signed to the Sine Language imprint back in 2009.

Look for Squake to step up onto the decks around Midnight.

With Local Support from:

DJ SHARP
[Compression/BADNB]

ZEZO ONE
[Konkrete Jungle Worldwide / Compression / Bassline Rumble]

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 Dubsteppers: 20 year old, UK-based dubstep rager, Cookie Monsta is also making a stop in SF as part of his US Tour to bring wobbly bits of bass to the Rukkuz Room along with Kutz (Big Up- UK) and Seven aka Eddie Woo and locals ATOS1 (Rukkuz Muzik), The Doctor (NorCal Nights, Primitive Science), Sam Supa (Surefire, Brap Dem) and MC Child handling mic duties.

From the event post:

Original Sin

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.

DJ Maniak

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!

TONIGHT IN SF: Sublife Thursdays- Submorphics (CHI), Pawn (LA), and more (04.22)

San Francisco- Spring is in the air, we’re finally pulling out of the cold & gloom of winter and Sublife Recordings‘  event has been bringing the soulful sounds of DnB & Dubstep from the hottest DJs and MCs from around the world to The Triple Crown here in SF now for a couple months and this April installment is no exception.

THIS FRIDAY!!! World of Drum and Bass US Tour kicks off in San Francisco! (03.19.10)

San Francisco- Compression SF & Rukkuz Muzik in association with Formation Records are getting ready to set off the 2010 US WODNB Tour in high style next week with an amazing lineup packed full of artists that are sure to bring their A-game and enough diversity to please a wide majority of bassline connoisseurs.

Though the night is going to be featuring a ton of UK-based talent, the lineup of DJ’s from the US is something to pay attention to. With many of them having releases available for sale at major online music outlets that are charting well and getting rotation on both online and broadcast radio here in America as well as across the pond, the Stateside contingency this year is primed and ready to show the world what we’ve been up to over the last 12 months.

If you’ve missed the madness in the past, check out this video from ’08:

1015 Folsom (aka 103 Harriet) is sure to be rammed to the rafters & filled with some seriously heavy bass for your face, so if you haven’t gotten your pre-sales yet, definitely make sure to grab your discount tix here and bring your camera’s, lighters and a case of Red Bull because with the number of killer tunes getting dropped all night, you’re going to need the energy!

NorCal’s Odyssey Celebrating 1 Year Anniversary 03.27.10

Monterey, CA- DnB is alive and well in California and this is evident by the sheer volume of party-goers and number of events that are showing their longevity from the large cities in SoCal and the Bay to the coastal towns and smaller cities throughout the state and “Odyssey” thrown by Peter Be and DJ Senator is a prime example of this.

Celebrating their 1st Anniversary on March 27th, Odyssey has been feeding the bass-hungry party revelers every 4th Friday of the Month for the past 12 months and they’re bringing down SF’s own DJ Canadub (BADNB/Shelter) to help them celebrate with a proper dosage of bass for your face!

Those of you that are in the area should definitely mark this night on your calendars and come thru to show your support!
