Basslaced, purveyors of all things sternum-shaking, have unveiled their programme of events to take us into 2013.
On November 23, trap-heads All Trap Music will take over Stoke Newington’s The Nest for a night of rattlesnake snares and malevolent bass rumbles. Chicago duo Flosstradamus will, as per their releases for Mad Decent, be repping the trap sound. Joining them will be Mad Decent labelmate Kito, Jack Swift, DJ Take and Jikay.
November 30 is in the hands of Ninja Tune’s resident party starter Toddla T, who’ll be taking over a secret location. The soundsystem warrior will be showcasing material from his own Girls Music imprint, and spinning a carnivalesque set himself. Promoters Church, meanwhile, have tapped up house/garage don Huxley, Lazer Sword’s Lando Kal and XXXY for the occasion. The 2 Bears will be flaunting their good-time handbag house, and house guru Ashley Beedle will also be in attendance. Sheffield’s revered Forgemasters will perform a live set, and bubbling MC Roses Gabor will also be along for the ride.
Things take a heavier turn on December 7, when Get Darker/Drum & Bass Arena will see Loefah and Oneman rocking a rare back-to-back set. The DMZ man and the Rinse regular are both seriously well-regarded DJs, and their collaborative effort should be worth the price of admission alone. Croydon scenemaker Artwork and US garage kingpin Todd Edwards are on the bill, as is the inimitable Youngsta. The drum’n'bass contingent is represented by Roni Size, Exit Records boss D:Bridge and Calibre. Artificial Intelligence, Randall and SP:MC are also on the bill.
A NYE do is also in the works, although the line-up has yet to be officially announced. Tickets and further information about all the above events are available from the Basslaced website.
