More on Bassic:
BASSIC shows some love to its neighbors this month, and by neighbors we’re talking about some of our not too far off from friends in New York City and Vermont!
Dave Q (DUBWAR, Twisup Bass)
Hailing from the NYC the man with plan behind the legendary night Dubwar returns to BASSIC to share with us some his favorite dubs that lay hidden within his record bag! Dave has been a foundational part in underground music in NYC. Be prepared to expect the unexpected and some of new and most interesting beats forthcoming from all over the world, and of course maybe a few 90′s r&b slow jams to!
The Orator (Mushpost, 90.1 WRUV, J’aime le Dubstep)
Nicholas Concklin aka The Orator is the brainchild behind Mushpost, a multi-faceted bass organism. With a network of radio shows and an endless supply of specially curated events this hyperactive Burlington-based DJ collective is modernity disguised as post-modern. Taking the role of the selectah to the next level Mushpost acts as cultural ambassadors, exonerating forward thinking, bass driven, transnational music. Each DJ brings to the table a dense musical personality that is distinct and palpable. This, combined with the fusion of disparate cultures, results in a live experience that is as stimulating to your body as it is to your intellect. A braindance.
Spliffolian (SUBduction, Bass Oasis, SubFM)
Spliffolian’s style is diverse, ranging across a wide spectrum of sounds and styles from roots, conscious dancehall, and dub to hip-hop, future dub, and dubstep with a particular ear towards deeper more nuanced sounds, heavy, dirty basslines, and unique melodies. Always fond of radio, he pioneered a number of SubFM shows including the now defunct Certain Mind State Radio with fellow Utrecht DJs Bojcot Selectah (OH GOSH!) and Roonigan and has just begun a new weekly SubFM show from Boston (Mondays, 2-4am GMT).
