AC Slater here for a little guest post on Gotta Dance Dirty to bring you the scoop on Night Bass, my Los Angeles based event based around pushing under-represented sounds of bass music in the American music scene including UK garage, bassline, grime and more. We are bringing UK based producer and DJ Royal-T from the infamous Butterz crew. If there was anyone meant to play at Night Bass its Royal-T. His fusion of garage, bassline, grime and hip hop fit perfectly into the ethos of the Night Bass movement. I had a quick chat with the man of the month to see what he’s got in store for us.

It’s going to be a long HARD Summer this year if Gary Richards and Co.’s new lineup trailer is any indication of the debauchery that will ensue come August 2 & 3. With Jack U (Skrillex + Diplo) as the main characters, the scene is set as the super duo set out to find their “schtick” with the help of Grandma Skrillex. It’s soon discovered that anything on top of your head goes as a motley crew of DJ’s assemble, including Richards, Justin Martin, and Kill The Noise. Everything turns sour, though, as Dillon Francis realizes his pals Diplo and Skrillex have stolen his Strawberry concept and only A-Trak can console… Peep the full video below and take a gander at a lineup that just about scratches any possible Electronic Music itch you might have.

The Babe Report: Desert Discoveries for WKND 2
(Welcome back to another killer guest post from none other than Babe in Residence, Miss Victoria Geil herself)
WE 3 BABES made it back alive to Los Angeles out of the desert. We survived a sandstorm, several marriage proposals, and midnight hikes out of the venue. We had a marvelous time, so marvelous that I’m finding myself tempted to reappear for Weekend 2 ;D
PRO TIPS must haves: tissue, hand sanitizer, SPF and a scarf (to sit on the ground with and also to cover your face for the dusty walk home). Leave your headdresses and light toys at home. Get your kicks painted at the Lacoste party. Dress comfortably. HYDRATE. Put away your phone to save battery – you can’t even refresh your instagram anyway.
If you suffer from FOMO anxiety, just know that there is at least 21 other epic things happening ALL AT THE SAME TIME and there’s nothing you can do about it except to enjoy yourself. Just know what scene you’re going for – fashion, business, celebrities, partying, pool hopping, or you know, for the music. But don’t fret, wherever you go the people watching is guaranteed to be fascinating, the new friends will be fun and you’ll have a ball!
Here’s what I enjoyed (musically) the most from weekend 1…
