Tectonic Records Boss Pinch Takes Miami Oct 7th

If your chest ain't rattlin, it ain't happenin! That's the motto of Tectonic Records, and a damn good code to live by. Thursday, Oct 7th we have a special guest at The Vagabond who's an expert chest rattler. I'm talking about none other than the Tectonic boss himself, PINCH! He'll be making his way from Bristol, England for one of the rare dubstep/bass shows (((SHAKE))) does outside of GET LOW. FYI, the next GET LOW is Oct 21st with Ninja Tune's POIRIER!


Another special guest that evening is a Berlin producer by the name of PUZZLE. With releases on Sublight, Tigerbeat6, and Generation Bass, be ready for his bass heavy experimental beats.


Locals in the lineup are Schematic Records founder ROMULO DEL CASTILLO, GOODROID (Get Low/Down) and MAGOULA (Smut+Bass) making his debut performance! Smut+Bass member PIZZABOY is celebrating his Birthday this night, so be sure to get loose with him! We have plenty of surprises in store for this night, so stay tuned...


On the 26th we welcome Headhunter/Addison Groove to Down!
Headhunter is the king of all things deep. Here's some info on the man himself:

"Headhunter aka Antony Williams started DJ'ing in 2005 after gaining a degree at Bath Spa University. With an interest in the UK Dubstep scene that was emerging on the pirate radio stations of London and Bristol, he eventually gained the skills to earn himself a spot on a small pirate station c
alled BS1 Radio, with a collective known as HENCH.

After a few months of hard graft on BS1, Headhunter found himself Djing in clubs up and down the uk every weekend.
It was then that he became more involved in the music industry, by producing music and signing to EMI sister label, Tempa recordings leading to releases on vinyl and cd and gaining more popularity within the international Dubstep scene.

During 2006 Headhunter had releases on labels such as Tempa and Ascension. He was quickly becoming a big name in the scene due to his niche take on the genre leading him to become resident at foundational Dubstep night, ‘FWD’ in London. From this quick success he became one of the most in demand DJ’s within the scene.

In 2007 more international gigs were becoming frequent with the rise of Dubstep to the mainstream and headhunter released a 5 track EP on Tempa along with various remixes and tracks on compilations. He was also featured on a 2 hour BBC Radio one show that focused on the Tempa label by doing a interview for the station on Mary Anne Hobb’s

2008 saw headhunter release his debut album on Tempa that became critically acclaimed and became described as ‘ a stunningly cohesive slab of post-garage hybridisation’ , he also had the opportunity to have a half hour slot for Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC radio one to display his sound to the biggest audience he has ever played to. It was also at this time that Headhunter’s DJing was at an European status week in and week out playing countries such as Greece, Slovakia, France, Germany and Holland.

In 2009 Headhunter made his first international tour of New Zealand And Australia along with starting his own record label and releasing his, and other peoples music. More releases came on Tempa, with a very popular remix of his own ‘Prototype’ from Radiohead’s support act ‘Modeselektor’. He also had a track accepted for the forthcoming game ‘Crackdown 2’ on the Microsoft xbox."

Alongside DJ's:

Dave Betamax (Smut + Bass)
Ashworth (Down/Get Low)
Gray Ghost (Down)
Munkz (Glitch.FM/Down)
Claro (Glitch.FM/Down)
Gooddroid (Down/Get Low)

No cover, $1 Red Stripes till 11, Headhunter will go on early for the Monday morning crowd, no excuses.

28 NE 14th St, Downtown Miami.

See you there!

Where Were You In 02?

If that sounds familiar, it is definitely a Zomby reference. Unlike his album which showcases early 90s hardcore/rave, Where Were You In 02? is a radio show on Radiate FM (FIU College Radio) that focuses on dubstep. 02, get it? It was started by a DJ who calls himself "The Ace Of Bass" back in May, and has been going steady ever since. We caught up with him, and he explained why he started the show:

"I started the show, mainly, because there was a huge influx of dubstep/bass music essentially running through all of the Miami electronic scene, currently. And there seemed to be a huge absence of dubstep on the radio, and virtually no dubstep show we can associate Miami with. People would have to listen to BBC Radio 1 or Rinse FM for their fix of bass. So I figured since I've grown a lot of interest in the genre, along with grime and a fascination with jungle as well, I'd do a radio show."

Click below to catch a recent episode!

9/7/10 by where were you in 02

Starting this week, the show will be moving from Tuesdays to Sundays and will be expanding from 1 to 3 hours! With the extra hours he'll be, "chronicling more of the evolution of Uk electronic starting with jungle/drumNbass/rave and moving on to dubstep, grime, post-garage and uk funky."

You can catch Where Were You In 02? from 7-10pm every Sunday on 95.3 in Miami/88.1 in Homestead/96.9 in N. Miami, and you can stream online at by clicking on the stream link! After the show you can get the tracklisting here.

This Sunday, The Ace Of Bass will be giving away 2 tickets to the Sept. 25th Get Some at The Electric Pickle with former Ultrablack member SLUGGO (Tuff Love Dubs/AZ), rising Cali star BARE (Ultragore/LA), JUAN BASSHEAD (BassHead Music) + KILL BUNNYFUZZ (Smut + Bass) for a dubstep smashup. Make sure you tune in!
