SMOG VS BASSHEAD WMC Lineup Announced!

Dear sweet baby jesus. I've been hearing about the progression of a major WMC event for a couple months now, but it didn't really hit until I saw it on paper... and by paper I mean computer screen.

Yesterday Smog and BassHead released the first wave of artists for their Thursday, March 25th show at the White Room. With highlights like Plastician, 12th Planet, Datsik & Excision, and an exclusive Mary Anne Hobbs appearance, Smog Vs Basshead will easily be the biggest dubstep event during Conference! And to think, they haven't even announced the full lineup yet!

Now that Juan is blogging, I'm sure he'll keep you filled in on all the added details along the way. Enough talk, just look...

dmZ 5 year anniversary tribute post

Hello internet-using bass lovers! The 5 year anniversary of the incomparable dmZ night in London is fast approaching (the event is March 5th). I've been fortunate enough to attend a few dmZ nights over the years and they have always been a wonderful and memorable experience. The first one I went to was the 3rd birthday in March of 2008. I've been back a few times since then, most recently this past November. I was even lucky enough to be asked to dj at the May 2009 event, which was a highlight in this dj "career" of mine considering the high regard I hold the event and the crew who make it happen, not to mention it is rare for an American dj to be on the lineup. But this blog post isn't about me, it's about celebrating the 5 year anniversary of the dmZ night.

On the night of March 5th, over 1000 music lovers will line up around the block to cram into an old church-turned-club named "Mass". They will be there to witness what is sure to be "one for the books" as people say; a night filled with people coming from near and distant places, sporting smiling faces due to the rumbling basses. dmZ is typically a one room affair, but for this edition they are opening up a 2nd room, and the lineup is stellar from start to finish in both rooms as you can see on the flyer image posted above.

While browsing the mixes section on dubstepforum, I came across a mix posted by a member named "Harkaransg". He titled the mix "DMZ through the years" and it immediately peaked my intrest since I'm a fan of the label. He posted "Strictly Vinyl Mix - 5th Birthday is just round the corner. I though i’d do a mix of dmz through the years. From about 40 or records I managed to narrow it down to these ones. Unfortunately I dont have Pathways or Horror Show, would have like to start with those two. Otherwise I pretty had the whole selection to pick from. Enjoy." You can download the mix by clicking this link.

For more info on dmZ the label, the clubnight, or the production team (Mala & Coki), please visit the dmZ website or take a look at the dmZ page at Wikipedia.

Once again, I'd like to congratulate the dmZ team on 5 years strong, and here's to many more! Whoever is reading this, next time you are in London, make sure you find out if there is a dmZ event going on so you too can - as their slogan says - "Meditate on Bass Weight".

Thanks for reading.

Hello people! Juan BassHead here. Hope everyone is doing great!

I'd like to share with you all a recording of Carl Cox's radio show on Kiss FM from Feb. 5th, 2010. You might be thinking to yourself right now "why the hell is this dumbass posting a Carl Cox show on a blog about Miami dubstep?". I'm doing it because for the particular show in question, Mr. Cox brought in some very special guests for a "dubstep special": Mala (dmZ), Benga, Jakes, and Caspa. Each of them played 30 min sets showcasing their individual styles, and the result is a 2 hour show covering a wide variety of what dubstep can offer. Whether you like your dubstep deep, minimal and meditative or hard, wobbly and bassface-enducing, or you're like me and love it all, you'll hear it on this show and you'll hear it done well.

Not sure how long this link will stay valid so start downloading! It's well worth the hard drive space, trust me.

Hope you enjoy it!

Miami Has Swine Flu

16bit posted a couple videos on Twitter last week, and I was nicely surprised to see more footage from their Miami show. Local DJ Banaboogie took these high quality videos from the booth at The Vagabond. She obviously has good taste, so check out her site sometime. After the jump, see how Get Low does it.

Original Dubstep Sounds

Oi oi whats happening miami dubsteppers and worldwide dubsteppers! Super special post today taking it back to the heart of sub-bass. I really wanted to share what this whole music genre is all about and the great thing about dubstep is that it means a whole lot of different things to different people. Everybody relates to the many styles in their own way and for me personally the root of it goes back a few years. These are my favorite mixes from 2005 - 2007 enjoy
