Chew the Fat! saddle up to Dub All Or Nothing to offer another wallet soothing showcase of every facet of bass music, building on from the success of the hugely popular showcase the duo crafted in January. Once again the premise is simple; buy your ticket in advance or arrive before 11pm and it’ll cost you a mere fiver, all for an obscenely strong and wide-ranging smorgasbord of bass led sounds.
In the main room there will be an doubled up assault of drum and bass and dubstep to craft some speaker shredding sonics, headed up by Bar9. Whether applying their vision via remixes of Nero, Example, Eurhythmics and Does it offend you, Yeah? or their own patented floor slaying records ‘Midnight’ and ‘Murda Sound’, the deadly duo are a force to be reckoned with. Layering dense levels of warped noise and shuddering bass to create an intense and full frontal barrage of sound, it’s music that is not for the fainthearted and evocative of the sheer seismic power music can create.
Joining them will be West Country wizard Calvertron, a man whose sound has quickly caught the ears of an unbelievably diverse cast of jocks; Busy P, John Digweed, Tiesto, Benny Benassi and Fatboy Slim amongst his fans. Polish wunderkind Xilent is next up, his unmistakeable brand of D&B already seeing him find favour with Zane Lowe after the New Zealand DJ made his ‘Beyond’ track his ‘Hottest record of the World’ and praised it’s ability to marry dubstep and D&B.
Rednek return for after a scintillating performance back in January, hot on the heels of their new album which sees a release through Champion Records on the 28th May. Millions like Us are also in the building, their ‘Equinox’ EP released on Bristollian record label D-Style, with the final spotlight falling on Substantial Error, whose single ‘Sunshine’ opened up Skream & Benga’s takeover of the BBC R1 airwaves.
The second room will be hosted by Wandsworth music imprint Bullet Train Records. The brainchild of bass music pioneer Marco Del Horno, Bullet Train’s wide and varied output has seen them release a killer slew of singles combining deep house, electro and of course every crevice of bass music. Joining Marco in the room will be Moshi Moshi lynchpins Hot City, their latest single causing sever ruminations across the whole spectrum of bass music.
The room is rounded off by some of the lynchpins of both labels, with Bullet Train represented by the wide ranging palette of Last Japan, who’s collaboration with hotly tipped grime MC Trim ‘East’ has started garnering heavy plaudits from DJs and tastemakers alike. Maribou State are in the corner for Chew the fat, still fresh from the success of their ‘Olivia’ EP and video from January, with Woz completing the room.
