Heavyweight Bass Rumble – San Francisco

I want to share with our San Francisco readers that myself The Crooked Clef, Taliesin of Dutty Artz, and Chief Boima of Ghetto Bassquake fame will be rumbling with the Slayer’s Club DJ crew at the Bollyhood Cafe on Friday at 9pm. I’m super honored to be playing with these fine DJ’s, and I’m sure you will feel similarly if you decide to join us. Specifics are below, and if you need convincing there are any number of mixtapes and examples of bass carnage for you to gnaw on. Be sure to revisit Chief Boima’s Dutty Artz EP “African By the Bay” before you make your excursion, as it will surely bring you out if none of the other DJ’s will.

Graffiti Breakz Presents… The Resurrection

Stuck for something to do this Halloween in London? Well somewhere at an undisclosed location, evil scientists have been developing a serum of broken beats, basslines, Digital visual and spray-can art, so potent it will raise the dead. After what has seemed like an age Graffiti Breakz is proud to present the effects of our serum…

…..We give you Graffiti Breakz – The Resurrection.! Sat 31st Oct ’09 (Halloween)

Graffiti Breakz has gained the reputation of being one of the only events in London to successfully combine Breaks, Hardcore Breaks, Drum and Bass’ Live music and Live Graffiti art all under one roof

Now with a larger venue and longer opening hours we will be adding to the mix Dubstep’ Electro/Dubstep, Live Breaks acts, Full Graff art Instillations, Full Graff Art Galleries, More Giveaways, Brighter Lights, and Louder bass to create a vibe re-born; stronger and more electric than any Graffiti Breakz so far..

All 3 rooms will be in session to their full potential. As you enter the rhythm factory you‘ll be met by the artwork of some of London’s leading artists showcasing at the Graffiti Gallery.

As you pass the gallery instillation, and live 6’x4’ Artwork being created in the front bar you arrive in the main room bursting with Live Acts’ DJ Teams, visual displays and much more.

Drifting further into the East London venue, you will find dirty dubstep, kick driven breaks, and the addictive rumble of dark and dirty bass.

Gracing the stages of the 2 Dance floors we have a line up that includes award winning Djs; Apply The Breaks, pioneering producers; Ctrl-z, inspiring funk soul band; Junkyard scientists, and leading the way in the live breaks scene; Diverted.

Freestylers & General Midi headline Slackers 7th Birthday @ London’s Rhythm Factory

Just in case you needed another blow out weekend, our Brighton breaks night Slackers Convention is taking over London’s Rhythm Factory for its 7th Birthday Party for a massive 8 hour session.

Yes, 7 years since we started in someone’s front room in Brighton, spending years trashing out the piss-smelling now-defunct Pressure Point, rocking the Concorde 2 to its foundation and now settling in nicely with the gritty grimy Volks Tavern on the seafront.

Under the slogan of “Breaks, Beats and Party Nonsense for Discerning Underachievers”, we’ve had non-stop weekends, smuggled soundsystems, raided houses, bustups, marriages  - everything you’d expect in a club night along with some bass heavy music.

It’s gonna be a mental breaks mash up with the all mighty Freestylers and breaks heavyweight General Midi both headlining in the Whitechapel club.

Pleased as punch to also have 2 Bit Thugs back to give it some wobbly gangster bass, plus Peo De Pitte, Blende, Loop De Ville, plus the sensational Slackers HQ residents Pav & LuQas, Dirtbomb, Sai, Pool, James D’ley and Mr Frisk.

You’ll want to grab some advance tickets at £8 as they’re £10 on the door

For more info, check out the Facebook group -

BONUS track from 2bit thugs!!!

Rico Tubbs – Gangsters – 2 Bit Thugs ReRub (Clean)

Slackers Convention @ Rhythm Factory, Saturday 8 August 2009, 10pm – 6am
16 -18 Whitechapel Rd, London

Big Chill Festival Is Back

Last year we repped at the brilliant Big Chill Festival in the UK looking after the live art walls which included live painting from UK graf kingpins INKIE and XENZ, the acclaimed east London collective CutUp and the mysterious digital vs. analog artist and bassbin enthusiast KARBORN. Music-wise last year launched acts from Lykke Li to FLying Lotus, Caspa and Rusko to The Mighty Boosh. This year Big Chill is back, packing a line-up including Orbital (I saw their “final” gig at Glastonbury all those years ago as well as their return at this year’s Sonar Festival… yes, t’was epic), Chris Cunningham, David Byrne, Chrome Hoof, Metro Area, Telepathe, Toddla and Kode 9. From the 6th – 9th August in stunning surroundings (a rolling deer park with lakes and hidden quarries), get your tickets here.
