Last weekend was one for the record books. If you are a massive bass-head like me and my fair photographer friend Kaitlin Parry at Shoot People, then you know I’m talking about both the Night Slugs warehouse banger at 35 Beadel Friday 1/11 followed by the baddest night in bass music courtesy of Trouble & Bass, Saturday.
For those new to the future bass sound, Night Slugs is the hottest collective from across the pond to invade America in a minute. Founder and leader L-Vis 1990 always drops the illest beats, and while I was too busy dancing to be bothered with taking notes on his set, I can 100% guarantee it was fresh and funky. Joined by compatriots Bok Bok and Girl Unit, the party lasted well into the pre-dawn hours, proving that the underground is where it’s at!
You know it’s THE party to be at when big names in electronic music show up just to dance and last Saturday night proved that the undisputed kings of bass, Trouble & Bass, know how to fucking rage! Teaming up with similar bass-minded collective Mixpak, we all threw down in a lil sketchy warehouse in the heart of Bushwick.
Honestly, every set from this night was rad and I really feel bad for you if you missed out. Star Eyes & Jubilee did a massive B2B followed by T&B founder Drop The Lime spinning with newcomer Tony Quattro. The Good Kids, Dre Skull, Strange VIP, Stryker Matthews, and Rizzla all also performed taking this party well into the morning. Shout out to everyone who stayed for the sunrise set!
