Electric Whommp with Heyoka, Blackheart, Porkchop, and Zombie-J


Location: Roe Restaurant (map & info)
Description: Electric WhomMp $5 entry all night and 2 for 1 drinks till 11pm
A super fly venue with super fat beats!!!
Heyoka – MutiMusic
Psychedelic / Glitch Hop / Dub / Bass
Driven by huge, lumbering bass lines and gritty programmed drumtracks,
Heyoka has a deeply psychedelic sound full of squelches, blips, sonic
flickers and all manner of effected sine waves, corrosive synthetics
and acidic programming. He draws on elements of IDM, glitch, downtempo
and displaced hip hop binding them up into a consistent dub framework,
with a very low center of gravity.

Blackheart – Brapdem, mallabelmusic.com
Dub / Techno / Fusion
A three man tag-teaming DJ crew, Blackheart unleashes a high energy performance that is immediately felt on the dancefloor.

Porkchop – RBC/Basement
Experimental / Glam / Dub

San Francisco based DJ/Producer, Porkchop, comes from a background in orchestral compositions, having been trained on the Euphonium for 10 years. After leaving the Midwest, Porkchop began utilizing drum machines and synthesizers to produce hundreds of obscure beats for an improv electronic band, playing shows in Denver and Boulder. One thing led to another, Porkchop moved to San Franciso and is now a frequent contributor to shows with Rebel Bass Collective, TRBL, Mallable parties, and the sun soaked forests during festival season. Rumbling bass bizness and sub frequencies always seem to soothe his hide. Catch him when you can.

Zombie-J – mallabelmusic.com
Dubstep / Baseline / Breaks

Zombie-J is Electric Whommp\’s resident DJ and has spent the last 8
years searching for the perfect bass as a dj and producer, playing
gigs all over Texas, New Mexico, DC, and SF. After emerging from his
self-imposed seclusion with a new sound annihilation system, he’s been
rocking everything from dancehalls to living rooms with the sounds of
dubstep, bassline, breaks lifted to new heights via creation through
destruction.

Ricky Switch presents the DubRap mixtape ft Sky-I, Starski, and more


Dub Rap FrontDub Rap Back
Ricky Switch, Pimp Hop Records, and a host of MCs from the Bay Area and beyond present Dub Rap volume 1, a hype and diverse mixtape of dubstep and glitch beats with MCs on the track.  Styles are diverse including autotuned flows, screwed & chopped cuts, glitched out beats and ragga MCs.  This one’s a guaranteed party rocker with an excellent job by the MCs over a killer selection of dubstep beats. Get it for free at dubrap.com.  Highlights for me include Fed the Thief, Fever, Monster, Chains, Wide Open, Big Up, and Yes I’m Back, and for the top two I’d have to go with Rankin Scroo on My Trees and Dub Life. Stream it here:
They say in the intro jungle or dubstep is the only natural progression for hiphop, I’m not sure it’s the only one but I think the sound has been moving in that direction for a while. Some examples here from J. Dilla:

Here’s the official summary of the mixtape:

Over a year in the making, countless hours logged, blood, sweat, and tears poured into it, and it’s day has finally arrived, Enter: Dub Rap. This new genre of music has been defined and developed thru the making of DJ Ricky Switch’s newest mixtape: Dub Rap Volume1, featuring One Drop. Put your seat belts on it’s gonna be a bumpy ride, but if your ears are ready to hear the future of music, stay tuned….Rewind four years prior, to a remote island off the north coast of Ireland where a young, but seasoned DrumNBass DJ named Ricky Switch was first being being exposed to wobble basslines, boom bap slaps, and a whole new sound of music which he soon found himself engulfed in, Dubstep. Shortly after, Ricky packed his bags and moved out to California, the San Francisco Bay Area to be exact. He found his way DJ’ing the few Dubstep and DnB shows that he could find, and doing so he also became involved in the local hip hop scene, where he joined the underground rap group Distant Relatives. In due course, he would share a studio with local Bay Area Rapper Starski, and while Ricky would be bumping dubstep dj sets in one room, Starski and his crew were knocking out raps in the other. It was only a matter of time before peanut butter met the chocolate and Reese’s Pieces was made, or as they call it Dub Rap.

During the process of working on the mixtape, they created a marriage the authentic sounds of UK Dubstep music and hardcore underground bay area MC’s and singers. Instantly, the artists became fully engrossed in the sounds and space that Dubstep offers a vocalist and found many ways to deliver their art form. Over 50 tracks were recorded in a year’s time, and only about half of them made it to the mixtape (respect to the ones that didn’t). The Dub Rap sound that came out of this experience is an intense mix of otherworldly sounds courtesy of UK Dubstep rhythms, and the future of bay area and worldwide hip hop music.

This project was done with much praise and respect given to the originators of Dubstep, and the producers who made the music that made this mix possible. It’s aimed at giving the genre another avenue to allow it to grow and to expose more people to it’s undeniable sound and originality. The core artists (the mcs/ singers) involved have no doubts that they will continue to work within this medium of art to allow their creative juices to flourish and expand on an ever broadening horizon of Dubstep visions. Their is no question that the genre of “Dubrap” will catch on with other artists the world over, and allow rappers and singers alike to grow into the next millennium of audio murder: Dubstep and now Dubrap.
