Bass Wars! : The Most Recommended Event In November 2011 By DJ Mag

Top Quote "A club night that prefers to dip its toe into eclectic pool of electronic loveliness rather than restrict itself to the tenets of a single genre... To play alongside dnb's most prominent representative, they've roped in a whole host of nu-skool bass talent. It's clearly going to be wicked." DJ MAG. End Quote
  • (1888PressRelease) October 19, 2011 - BASS WARS! @ KOKO on Saturday the 12th November features the likes of GOLDIE, EMALKAY, 16, BIT, TROLLEY SNATCHA, SKISM, MT. EDEN, BARE NOIZE, SUKH KNIGHT, STENCHMAN and many more.

    For many, drum & bass has gone full circle and deserves more attention now than it has in the past few years, reviving a vital and compelling old flame.

    Ever since artists like EMALKAY and 16 BIT have taken the essence of "Old Skool" rave and incorporated the wobbles and space of contemporary bass music, this generation of beatmakers are now experimenting with more rhythmic, compositional and sonic qualities that are groundbreaking.

    Mixing classic drum and bass with the synthetic darkness of Dubstep they have created something unprecedented, fresh, and more than the sum of its parts. The world of dubstep continues to expand, with more and more artists crossing over genres- they hold onto their sonic roots while making the transition into a new realm and create a dark union of the two genres. Residing on Caspa's Dub Police label, EMALKAY is a perfect example of that.

    Artists such as BARE NOIZE, SKIsM and SUKH KNIGHT are keen on evolving dubstep and pushing the genre beyond its usual barriers. Harder breaks coupled with industrial synths, a riot of off-beats progress into heavier tunes and amazing live acts.

    With each artist carving their own style and niche from a similar heritage of influences, the line-up promises a volatile offensive from each corner. Drums and Basses will lead the entire night blessed by the father of the genre embracing some of the industry's newest dubstep acts alongside some of the hottest D n' B producers hurling depth-charge basslines, crystal-tipped breaks and memorable landscapes of mysterious melodies.

    THE PLAYGROUND returns for their final epic show of the year on
    Saturday the 12th November @ KOKO London.

    KOKO can be found at 1a Camden High Street, London, NW1 7JE. Doors open at 9pm and tickets are on sale now via
