Big Stinking Bass

Being a proud born and bred Bristolian it’s only natural and somewhat stereotypical – I have to accept, that I’m the type of guy thats obsessed with the deeper kind of frequencies that only a decent sub-cabinet can provide. So in my posts I’m gonna be providing you lot with all things bass driven, be it stuff happening in the world-famous Bristol Dubstep/Bass Music scene, tracks you can find in Nokia Music / Ovi Store, general rants or bits of bass related info.

So first off, I gotta give a mention to some of the things I’m involved within my home town. First of which is Karnival at The Tube on Unity Street. This is a monthly club night dedicated to the sounds of UK Funky, Bashment, Dancehall, Soca and Garage. It’s ran by residents Dub Boy, Atki2 (Monkey Steak) and myself, Stylatron. Last Saturday (5th of Dec) we had the pleasure of witnessing Ghislain Poirier and MC Zulucome and give the dance floor a serious workout. Anyone who knows these guys’ tunes knows that it would have been a lively one for sure! For those unfamiliar with The Tube, its an intimate joint with bags of character but, most importantly, packs one hell of a sound system!

Other nights I’m involved in are Ruffnek Diskotek and the mighty Monster Bassevents. Both of these nights are dedicated to Dubstep, Bashment, Dub, Reggae and general heaviness. Ruffnek are monthly events at Cosies with regular guest DJs, while Monster Bass’ happen only twice a year. We have the fantastic Mungo’s Hifi Sound System as our resident sound, which to experience is worth the entry fee alone! Past events have seen:
