No question: Zeds Dead made this holiday season their own. After a more than impressive Toronto show at Kool Haus (which bpm:tv captured for an upcoming Spotlight), DC and Hooks decided to give the perfect encore at Wrongbar. By 9pm the lineup was already down the block.
This party used to be in a basement — now it’s sold out for days, the hardest ticket to get in the biggest city in Canada. Success! I won’t even get into the logistics of the show. Lemme just say, calmy: they did very well.
The best thing about catching one of these Bassmentality events is to see the guys in their element. I remember at a Designer Drugs show earlier this year there was a moment of chaos when things got a little out of hand and crowd started to bum rush the stage. After a minute of silence and calming everyone down, they started their set again. Not Zeds Dead, not The Killabits, not Bassmentality. When the crowd went h.a.m. they went meatloaf. You wanna knock my Pioneers? No prob bruv, we gonna wobble the f*** out of u.
Got some sweets for you right here. Not all brand new tracks — just the stuff that rocked my personal holidays.
Biz and Sam were in the giving mood this Yuletide. Here is an electro version of Kill the Noise – Dying. First release off their 8 Crazy Nights.
This is an old one — but it was new to me this week and is on repeat heavily. Look out for Fytch!
I recently posted on twitter (@Sawstruck) that this track is the tune of the moment. Benga takes A-Trak‘s latest and makes it his….
If this track wasn’t on your New Year’s Eve playlist, then you weren’t doing New Year’s right.
Another oldie but essential … lap it up!
This’ll go down nicely with that leftover turkey and eggnog.
Let’s take a trip to Disney’s Tron soundtrack and venture a tune from the three rudest dudes in the game.
More post-Christmas catch-up to come ….
