‘Dream Show’ for Sydney bassheads!!

Have you ever looked at a club flyer from the london bass scene and thought to yourself “,if only we had those lineups here” … well ,  over at Chinese Laundry  they have thought the same way over and over again.

In fact , they have thought about it that much that it was only a matter of time before they put our thoughts into practice to give Sydney bass heads what would seem to be a “Dream show”

Their first show to kick the new year off on Jan 5th,will be bigger than the balls on a donkey !

Laundry have  picked the best in the business straight from london town to give you a showcase of bass!

SKISM

 

The man behind Never Say Die Records , Skism returns to Australia to reign supreme and showcase his amazing 4 deck show. A dj like no other, you may know him from such bangers as…

Mix tracks like this in with his labels tunes , his 4 deck quad drops, his entertaining stage presence and 3 or 4 vodkas and we are in for one hell of a party!

Bare Noize

 

Another badman from londontown with countless tunes on rotation from the worlds biggest producers with hits like

Hailing from labels as Mau5trap , Ministry Of Sound , EMI and more, if your up for listening to robots having a gang bang, this man is your draw card.

Brookes Brothers

 

From the breakbeat Kaos stables comes the Brookes Brothers, mega party starters with their melodic drops and groovy drum patterns. If you don’t know these guys, they have been receiving airplay on bbc radio 1 with tunes such as…

Brookes Brothers  need no introduction if you’ve been following drum n bass for quite some time, these guys will be sure to have you moving and grooving. Touring around the world for many years they have perfected their sets to display a vast knowledge of what is needed to get you going.

Ed Rush

 

Being one of the first people to change the face of a genre  and pushing new trends Ed Rush is undeniably  one of the godfathers of Drum n Bass music. Forever being at the top of  bills for quite some time you may know such tunes as…

And many many more, I’m just scratching the surface a little, we would be here for years if i had to show you my best tunes from him.

This is set to be a huge start to 2012, one purely for the bass heads to celebrate the start of the new year the only way we know how , to  rave.

This will be the first of many for 2013 so make sure you prepare yourselves.

Ultra Music Festival in Europe!

[youtube=http://youtu.be/-OgkOqWk1go]

Ultra Worldwide has just announced that they will be bringing their prestigious festival to Europe for the first time in 2013 from July 12th – 14th in Croatia. The festival plans to span 2 separate venues – spending its first 2 days at Poljud Stadium before moving to the Hotel Amfora Grand Beach Resort on the island of Hvar. This is exciting news for European dance music fans, but it remains to be seen if a Miami Music Week type of following, with its week long party schedule, will be established in it’s inaugural year.

Priced at 40 euros (approximately $65 USD), early bird tickets for the first two days go on sale December 5th exclusively at Ultra Europe.com. Stayed tuned for the Phase One lineup announcement on December 12th at 12:00 p.m. local time.  Also, for those of us stuck in the states, there are already extensive plans to stream the event through UMF TV and UMF Radio. It will be Swedish House Mafia’s final performances at Ultra Music Festival. Be sure to grab a ticket to get in quick!
