EshOne (Elk Beats, Dataset, Dead Technology) San Diego

EshOne plays whatever he wants. Chances are this is why you will like what you hear. He has interesting taste in music, great stage presence, and is fun to party with. He knows what he’s doing, and he doesn’t bullshit around on the mixer. He’s played with a lot of big names, but that really doesn’t matter. If you’re wondering what to bring to the booth, he drinks hoppy beer, preferably IPA, pale ale, or red ale… If you lack beer confidence, try whiskey.

Moldy (Heavy Pressure, ‘earwax, Embassy, TUBA, BASSIC)

Boston based dubstep artist Moldy is notorious for mind-bending DJ sets and productions that stay true to the “deep and exploratory drive of the early days” (Mixmag, 12/12/2011). A “veteran of American dubstep” (flavorwire.com, 4/19/10), Moldy has been “quietly leading the charge of US dubstep producers since day one” (dubwarnyc.com, 5/29/10).

The BASSIC crew wants to give a big up to everyone for showing us love for the past 6 years! We’re keeping the celebration going this month by bringing back the one and only GOTH-TRAD all the way from Japan! But this time he’s performing a Live set!
GOTH-TRAD (Deep Medi, Back to Chill) Japan

A true master of manipulating sound frequencies with a long standing list of well known and respected releases under his belt make this a show not to be missed!

Back in Japan he continues his relentless live and studio work as well as fostering and showcasing new Japanese talent at his own “Back to Chill” night. His music can also be heard on various multimedia projects, including soundtracks.

6 years of music

6 years of blood sweat and tears

6 years of love for what we do

Still going strong as one of Boston’s most underground and influential nights, BASSIC steps up to celebrate 6 massive years with the return of a special guest (and a very special 6th anniversary t-shirt).

J:Kenzo (Artikal Music, Tempa) UK
Returning to us from Kent, UK J:Kenzo has been crafting his own unique productions for some time now. Since his first official release in 2007, J:Kenzo’s jungle and techno influenced tracks have seen the light of day through labels such as Tempa, Dub Police, Argon Records, 2nd Drop and his very own imprint Artikal Music UK. His career took a critical turn when DJ Youngsta became aware of his talent and took J:Kenzo under his wing. Since then tracks like ‘The Roteks’ and ‘Ruffhouse’ have had an even bigger impact on the international dubstep scene, gaining him support from selectors such as Hatcha, N-Type, Distance, DJ Laurent Garnier and Emalkay. 2012 was a huge success for J:Kenzo when he dropped his self-titled album on Tempa recordings and launched his own label Artikal Music. Expect a night of serious low-end business.

AxH (Tuba, BASSIC) Boston
AxH, (formerly Grizzly), has been dedicated to bass music and DJ-ing for over a decade. Based in Boston, MA, AxH got his start as Prodigal Son, producing Ragga Jungle that received praise and plays all over the world. AxH caught the Dubstep bug in 2006 while serving overseas in the U.S. Military, and has been pushing forward ever since! He has been releasing music digitally and on wax since 2004, and has played coast to coast in North America, supporting his releases. 2008 saw AxH perform in Kiev, Ukraine, a set that people are still talking about today. He has become a prolific producer as he's honed his deep, dark, and heavy style with his tunes have been receiving support by the one and only DJ Youngsta on RinseFM. AxH is one of the residents for BASSIC Boston, (Boston's premiere Dubstep night), where he can be heard dropping entire sets of his original tracks. You can also hear him on BASSIC's Sub.FM show every Saturday night.

Spliffolian (SUBduction) Boston
Spliffolian AKA Selecta Folian has been spinning records for the past nine years. Always an avid music listener, musician, and fond of a vast diversity of styles, he began djing at his college radio station in Portland, OR as a conscious roots, reggae, and dub selecta. Holding down a radio show at KRRC for 6 years he fine tuned his DJ skills and in the process became exposed to new styles and flexes which eventually led him to the sounds of dubstep and future dub. Upon moving to San Francisco in 2007 he became more fully immersed in the SF dubstep scene and style, playing local dubstep nights such as Brapdem! as well as reggae nights such as Jah-Warior Shelters' Bless Up weekly at Milk and other underground venues. Departing San Francisco for Utrecht, NL in August 2008, Spliffolian quickly linked up with local dubstep crews the Randstad Rollaz and DUBieus, holding down a residency at the Rollaz' monthly Wobble Trouble and making appearances at other parties in the Utrecht/Amsterdam areas including LED at SJU, Gute Laune! (Eat This!) at ACU, and Dub City at Club Bitterzoet. Now residing in Boston, Spliffolian has continued to murk whatever scene he finds himself in playing at local dubstep nights Bassic and Dubwise with more appearances to come alongside his new local crew subDuction.

This year for TOGETHER Fest BASSIC is about to rattle your chestplate hahda' than evah! Bring your bassface because we've got the one and only DISTANCE behind the decks!!!!!

DISTANCE (Chestplate, Get Darker, Tectonic) London UK
The mastermind behind Chestplate recordings DJ Distance hails from the South London dubstep nucleus and is an originator of the dubstep sound. He has been involved in its development since its early years and has produced tracks with the likes of Skream, Benga, Pinch and Cyrus.

With a background of heavy metal and experimental industrial music, his approach to dubstep is truly different to any others. Whilst many producers reference influences such as King Tubby to Lee Scratch Perry, Distance main influence hails from the likes of Sepultura, Pantera and Fear Factory.
Distance as producer, DJ and label owner (Chestplate Records), has been pushing things in a direction all of his own. Gathering early support from the legendary John Peel and going on to be part of the utterly seminal Dubstep Warz show on Radio 1 presented by Mary Anne Hobbs, Distance has forged a name for himself as a critical figure in the scene.

Distance is a regular at the seminal raves such as FWD, DMZ, Exodus, SUB: DUB and more. His Dj bookings have taken him across the globe where he devastates dance floors and sound systems in his own unimitable style.

Distance's recorded output is also formidable, finding homes on labels as underground and seminal as Hotflush, Tectonic and Boka in his early career, to ending up on the world reputed Planet Mu, on which Distance released his debut album in 2007.

Distance's studio has spawned multiple stone cold killers over a range of styles but all uniquely Distance, highlighting why his new releases are some of the most highly anticipated in the scene.

If you’re a fan of heavy metal, industrial rock, dub, reggae and techno….then this is the sound for you. Though hard to relate these binary opposite genres together, somehow...Distance does just that.

With residencies at Exodus/Dmz Leeds and Outlook festival (voted best european music festival 2011) he has fast become a household name all over the globe regularly touring Asia,Europe and UK with his take on Dubstep.

His Debut album Circadian followed a string of releases with Pinch's tectonic label based in bristol and achieved a 4.5 stars from the like of Resident Advisor (4.5 stars) and Mixmag (4 stars) and also charting highly in the best albums of 2010.

Jack Sparrow has also shown his versatility by remixing for many names and labels including Skepta (3Beat), Count and Sinden (Domino), Birdy (Atlantic), XXXY (Pollen), Mumdance (Mad Decent), Photek (Tectonic) and RSS (Wall Of Sound) amongst others. Jack has also worked closely with Loopmasters in 2011 to develop sample cd's for other producers to use within dubstep productions.
