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!
ITS BRYAN GEE
BRYAN MOTHERF***IN GEE!
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.
Check out a blistering recent live set from BRYAN GEE here:
COMPRESSION also welcomes back resident DANNY THE WILDCHILD. Another drum & bass legend, the WILDCHILD has been rocking stateside audiences like a hurricane for well over 15 years. Chopping, scratching, flipping and otherwise FUNKING UP the turntables in ways you never thought possible, the WILDCHILD takes the bouncingest tracks you ever heard and bounces them harder.
Like BRYAN GEE, the WILDCHILD is only ever aimed at rocking the dancefloor. So limber up! This night is going to work your shit out!
Also on the night are COMPRESSION resident badasses 2 CENTS, LUKEINO, MC AX!OM and THE COLONEL MC.
And check it: this is the Colonel’s first night back after a three-month hiatus with his new baby girl, so look for that man to lose his mind and RIP SH*T UP!
