TONIGHT: Slayers Club 1yr Anniversary with David Last, MC Zulu, Mochipet, Kush Arora, and more

Location: Club Six (map & info)
Description: Slayers Club is responsible for the popular, cutting-edge weekly “Terenga - Global Bass Sessions” at Little Baobab (”The best weekly in San Francisco” -Kid Kameleon/XLR8R Magazine, Surya Dub).

Coming at you from all directions, Slayers Club defies traditional boundaries by seamlessly merging dance music genres into a foot-stomping, sweat-inducing freakout firmly rooted in Bass Music Culture.

We’re celebrating our one year anniversary as a crew by bringing you some very special guests at a low, low price:

Brooklyn NY resident and False Profits affiliate David Last makes tracks which combine the soundcraft of contemporary electronic music with the deeper-leaning funk of dancehall, dub, latin music and hip hop.

His tracks are currently released with labels like Staubgold (Berlin), The Agriculture (NYC), and Foundsound (Philly). His full length CD “The Push Pull” has gained crtical acclaim and a sizable cult following in Europe, the USA, and Japan, as has his recent Staubgold release with genius ragga vocalist MC ZULU.

The overall sound and vibe of Panamanian-Born MC Zulu (Ninja Tune, Chicago IL) is one of the Caribbean immigrants who came to America just in time to pick up on both cultures.

Like any “Born Jamerican-esque” Dancehall hybrid, the fact that it’s 75% party, with catchy, pop-anthem choruses will reel you in. The remaining 25% however, is why you’ll respect him.

He has recently collaborated with notable artists such as Ghislain Poirier, Aceyalone, Frikstailers, DJ C and Kush Arora, just to name a few. His electrifying live performances are not to be missed!

With support from:
Mochipet (Daly City Records)

Kush Arora (Surya Dub, RecordLabel Records)

Slayers Club featuring Lokae, Manitous, Professor Bang, Freddie Future, Matt Haze and Joe Mousepad on the microphone.

Having recently shared the bill with such future-forward international acts as The Glitch Mob, Flying Lotus, Kush Arora, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Kraddy, Ana Sia, Mochipet, the Slayers Club has emerged as a champion of cutting edge music, and strong supporters of the San Francisco underground music community.

After playing at LoveEvolution 2009 to a crowd of more than 100,000 with the TRBL and Fringe crews, Slayers Club is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the bubbling cauldron of creativity that is the San Francisco electronic music scene.

Deftly combining all music genres, from Dubstep to Electro, Future Crunk to Drum & Bass, the Slayers Club brings it heavy every time.

Sam Supa - Dub Machine (Exclusive Mix)

Sam Supa (Brapdem, Grime City, Surefire) described this mix as “a true spectrum of all the Dubstep I play and what is good in music right now” and I have to agree.  Straight out the gates it’s serious with Wachs Lyrical’s “Fear VIP,” but that’s just a foreshadowing of what’s to come as it fades into deeper tunes.  Constantly through the mix Sam is taking you on a journey, in and out of darkness, showcasing various vibes in dance music.  This to me is what makes a good mix, flexing all aspects of music to produce something that cycles in and out of intensity.  I was thinking about this at the recent “Hardly Strictly Bluegrass” festival here in San Francisco where the musicians also used mellow, sparse introductions juxtaposed with more beat-heavy danceable sections to get people in the groove.  I feel like this is fundamental to well-executed dance music and this mix is a very good example.

Highlights of this for me are the intro from Wachs Lyrical, the DJG collaborations with XI and Headhunter, Eprom’s robotic glitchy track “Humanoid,” Eskmo’s bit off the Hypercolor EP (look for more from him soon on Planet Mu), Zeno’s fresh track and a Brapdem signing “Lazer Wolf 2010,” Djunya’s metallic, primal dancehall killer “Full Circle,” and Kozee’s 20,000 leagues deep tune “Sugar Loaf.”  After Kozee comes James Blake’s “Air & Lack Thereof” and this may be the best blend into the track I’ve ever heard, perfect example of going from one vibe to another seamlessly.

Featured in this mix is Skulltrane’s “This One Called Dub,” recently out on MalLabel.  They also distributed a couple free MP3s with this release, fans of the dirty sound should check these out:

Dubstepped Radio Episode 004

Dubstepped Radio
Yes yes, it’s the fourth episode of Dubstepped Radio.  I had to take a bit of a hiatus making them but we’re back in action.  This one’s heavily vocal with the talents of Jahdan Blakkamoore, Winstrong, Sky-I, MC Zulu, Rankin Scroo, DJ Collage, Jammer and Badness on the mic.  It starts off with some 2steppy rhythms by a trio of Texas producers and then moves into some synthy futuristic ’step from KidLogic and Zeno, a vocal bashment session, some club rhythms and a reggaeish outro.  Big!
