Milestone alert: Basslaced are turning four this year.
The promoters are one of London’s preeminent specialists in all things sternum rattling. In honour of the occasion, they’ll be bringing a bass heavy line-up to XOYO on May 18. Plastician is the big pull on the bill. The Croydon producer/DJ has been around since dubstep’s year zero, and remains one of the most skilled proponents of dark garage and abrasive wub-wub. He’ll be joined by top-drawer MC D Double E, best known as one half of Newham Generals.
Dub Police’s Trolley Snatcha will be bringing his lead-plated version of dubstep to the table. The Others (no, not those ones) will also be turning out DMZ-influenced dubstep. Fred V & Grafix will be keeping things peppier with a set of high energy d’n’b, with Dream and Jack Swift also stepping up. Pack will helm Room Two: Boyson, Sai, Harikiri and Wheela will all be stopping by with sounds deep and dark. Jekyl, Boris and C-Side flesh out the lineup.
The night runs from 10.00pm until 3.00am. Further information is available from the Basslaced website.
