MIXTAPE MADNESS: Heavyweight Division presents “Round 1″

Brooklyn, NY- Dave Gee and MC Diggadee have teamed up to form Heavy Weight Division and bring you “Round 1.” While they are known to perform together live, this is the first official mix from these partners in grime.  “Round 1″ is a high speed ride through a dark world of bass and powerful beats.  It consists of various unreleased tracks from some of the genres most prolific producers as well as the Cops remix by Dave Gee & Trigon ft. DZ.

The DJ/MC Dubstep duo have had a busy year between playing dozens of shows up and down the East Coast including Winter Music Conference and Starscape and making their way out to Puerto Rico and Paris in the last several months but when they’re at home in Brooklyn, they hold down a residency at Brooklyn’s premier dubstep monthly, Dark Room.

With residencies at Dark Room and Dub Nation, original tunes in the works, and a rapidly growing show schedule, this is an act to keep an eye on heading into the new year.

Dub Nation Brooklyn w/ Dieselboy, Datsik, and more (05.28)

Brooklyn- Steez Promo & Methods NYC have teamed up to bring NYC a BANGER of a party, Dub Nation, to Brooklyn’s Coco66 for the first time ever on May 28th.

East Coast heads are also in for a treat to see Dieselboy drop the latest DnB/Dubstep set that he’s been teasing folks with in Cali (the set he dropped at Compression SF was epic) and down in Miami at WMC (where he went B2B with Excision).

Along with the headliners, the Dark Room NYC resident crew will be providing support for the evening.

Due to snow, NYC’s DJ Empress unable to make Respect LA (02.11)

UPDATE- 04:18pm 02.09.10: Due to the “Apocalyptic Snowstorm” that is mauling the East Coast right now, all of the flights from NYC to LA have been canceled, so unfortunately, Empress’ appearance is looking like it will be delayed until future notice. Stay tuned for updated line-up information for this week!

Los Angeles- One of my favorite ladies in the DnB world, Empress, is making a West Coast stop at LA’s weekly, Respect.

She’s been busy in the studio working with her new band in preparation for a new album & tour, but she’s going to be taking a break to come and drop some heavy business for the LA crew.

StatesideSessionsCoverI’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with her since the early days in both of our careers and since day one, Empress has continued to push her sounds every where she goes (from being the 1st American DnB DJ to play at Movement back in ’99 to her “Stateside Sessions” tour in 2003 )  &  rocks crowds from coast to coast.

Those of you in the LA area should definitely make sure to check this one out, Empress is notorious for having exclusive dubs & her production definitely is not to be slept on- she does the damn thing ;-)
