After becoming the most talked about party in Los Angeles, AC Slater‘s NIGHT BASS movement set out on a 12 dates in 12 days tour with bass house heavyweights Jack Beats, Hannah Wants, Kry Wolf and the man himself. The tour was a success in every city they invaded, but something special was planned for its LA date this past Friday, October 10th. AC Slater teamed up with HARD to bring together one massive event in the warehouse district of downtown Los Angeles, where the infamous Lot 613 was set to play home to the festivities. With the help of Gary Richards and the HARD team, NIGHT BASS quickly became the hype of the weekend and sold out before the night even started.

Room 1 featured the tour lineup, along with NIGHT BASS residents BONES & Petey Clicks. They got things started quickly, as the room filled up and packed out within the first hour. The much anticipated Hannah Wants came after with a huge set, followed by the chief AC Slater bringing it heavy and Jack Beats keeping the energy so alive it was literally spilling out of the room. Capping off the night was a secret set from Kry Wolf, who let his jackin vibes speak for themselves as the night went into the early morning.

Along with the tour lineup, AC brought in friends to take care of room 2: Anna Lunoe, Treasure Fingers, Amtrac, Light Year and Jen Lasher to the rescue. Room 2 was equally slammed, a wider room layout but just as crazy as it’s heavier neighbor. Only in LA can so many incredible artists happen to be in the same town on multiple tour schedules that culminate to one massive experience. The hype was so real that other big names in dance music couldn’t stay away. The likes of Boys Noize, Nadastrom, Kaskade, GTA, Destructo, Jauz, Brazzabelle, and even Valentino Khan‘s mustache we’re all in attendance.

The NIGHT BASS movement proved that it’s hear to stay, and its home is in Los Angeles. The tour dominated its 12 show routing across the US, and looks forward to continuing its monthly series here in LA along with new tours and festival stages in the works… be on the lookout for live set recordings from the whole night and more info on upcoming events!

The Future Bass movement has taken firm footing in AC Slater‘s Night Bass shenanigans, and for good reason, it thumps. Galloping bass lines accented by walloping bass synths permeate this playlist. Curated exclusively for the dawg’s at Boomrat, it might be a choice decision to peruse before cruising to Night Bass tomorrow night (scattered in these selections are tracks from this weeks performers).

Listen HERE.

Virginia-bred and LA-based Petey Clicks has been on a tear since stepping out as a solo act. Signed to AC Slater‘s Party Like Us Records, Petey has been producing some bass nasty heat and continues to cross genre barriers like a BAWSE.

With “BAE”, the title track for his forthcoming EP, we hear a fresh chord progression, accented with some playful vox – all bundled together to make one solid, summer-toned bass tuneage.

BAE is out August 12th on Party Like Us Records. Listen to it here.

We were extremely excited to have DJ EZ  at #NIGHTBASS to play his first USA gig ever, and he delivered beyond anything we could have imagined. The club was packed and the vibes were through the roof! He was joined by AC SLATER, Trouble & Bass queen STAR EYES, and a special B2B set from BONES & PETEY CLICKS.

The heat of summer is upon us and a plethora of new music has surfaced after the holiday weekend! Coming off a huge NIGHT BASS last Thursday night, we can’t help but hunger for bass heavy garage craze that’s sweeping DJ sets across the board. Thanks to the likes of Hannah Wants, AC Slater, and the dirtybird crew carrying the torch, we’ve discovered a gem of producers – such as Three Bar.

This EP has been rinsed around the globe as of late and its jacking energy can’t help but get things escalated quickly. I first heard ‘Movin’ when Shift K3Y opened with it @ NIGHT BASS, and the place went nuts. Listen to the full EP below, and be on the lookout for its release next week (July 14) on Huxley‘s label Saints & Sonnets.

Happy hump day kids!

We have a huge exclusive for you today, as we’re proud to bring you the premiere of AC Slater‘s remix to Motez “Own Up” – coming soon on Aussie imprint Sweat It Out. The already stellar original boasted jackin piano house with melodic chords and soulful vocals – but AC took it the club and gave it the “NIGHT BASS” treatment. The product is a bass heavy roller that perfectly executes its beefy overhaul while still delivering the uplifting tones of the original. Don’t just take our word for it – the remix already has gained support from the likes of Tchami, Annie Mac and the Bixel Boys… listen below!

Live and direct – the hard hitting Netherlander and GDD favorite Bart B More is in the haus! Amidst his 2014 US Summer tour and in Los Angeles for his b2b set tonight w/ AC Slater @ NIGHT BASS, we grabbed a quick catch up with the man himself to see whats been up and whats to come…

GDD: Bart! Been a minute since we last heard from you, whats been up this year for you as far as production? Anything you can let us know coming up too?
BBM: Hey guys, it’s been a while indeed but I’m happy to be back in the states for a bit to play a couple of shows! I started off the year with my second EP on Skrillex’s imprint OWSLA. With that EP I was able to show a more cinematic side of myself which I was really happy about.

Beside that I’ve been pushing my label Secure Recordings a lot with releasing my own tracks. To me, my last EP on Secure felt like a statement to make dance music more about dancing again, and I was really pleased to see it get support from heavy weights like Skrillex and Boys Noize. There’s a lot of exciting stuff coming up! I made a cowbell track that I’m releasing on Chris Lake’s ‘Rising Music’, and a new 3 track EP on Secure. But the thing I’m probably most excited about is my new collab project with Mr. Oizo, as he’s one of my biggest inspirations regarding creativity and originality. Super stoked for what’s ahead.

GDD: You’re on your US Summer Tour now and will be playing @ Sound this Thursday for NIGHT BASS. What do you like best about playing in LA?
BBM: I feel like there’s a lot of people in LA that truly appreciate my sound. I’ve received nothing but love at the shows I’ve played here. I notice because my social media usually blows up before I play a show in LA. The anticipation is just immense and it never disappoints. I’m really excited about the show tomorrow!

GDD: What does “NIGHT BASS” mean to you? What do you think of this craze for “bass heavy house” or “nu-k garage” music? Can you see yourself adapting to it or still paving your own way?
BBM: People that have followed my music know that I loooove bass heavy music :) so I definitely encourage this trend… super happy to be a part of introducing the mainstream to the roots of house music! Although my goal is to pave my own way of course, this is definitely a’ genre’ I’m most comfortable with.

GDD: You’re going b2b with AC Slater @ NIGHT BASS. Have you guys ever played together before? Can we expect a studio session out of this trip?
BBM: We’re definitely meeting up before the show, but not sure if we’ll be able to squeeze in a session. We used to play alongside each other all the time but we never actually played a b2b set before! I know it’ll be a lot of fun because it always is when we’re together. AC is very passionate about his music and always has so much fun when he dj’s , which rubs off on the crowd, not to mention myself as well ;)

GDD: What are you looking forward to over the summer?
BBM: Think I’m going to have a music filled summer, both in the studio and on the road dj’ing…I’ll be going to a lot of places meeting new people, and catching up with all the friends I made along the way. Really embracing the lifestyle at the moment and so grateful to be able to do it all, no complaints :)

Don’t miss NIGHTBASS @ Sound TONIGHT featuring Bart B More, AC Slater, Royal-T, Lokate, Meech, and Bones.
