45hz019 Dubbed Out – N-Type x Bar 9 x Bannerworx
June 14, 2011 § Leave a comment
Parties are by and large judged on their turnouts, quality of music and the sorts of people that end up shuffling through the doors on the night. Taking these facts into consideration, Dubbed Out smashed the life out of this party.
Anyone who has visited The Loft before knows the place is an absolute bass trap at the best of times. This time was a little more special thanks to the installation of two of these beautiful stacks on the day.
Opening proceedings was resident DJ and top notch producer Mosaix. Bringing forth a fresh selection of dark minimal beats and exclusive dubs that put the system through its paces giving Maidstone a lesson in how to do things proper. Keep your eyes out on this blog for an interview and exclusive studio mix coming soon…
Second to step up was Bannerworx and safe to say this man provided the set of the night for me and the large majority of ravers in the room. Mixing old classics with new dubs he powered his way through a set that turned the room into a dingy, dark sauna. He’d hinted at something big for the end of his set earlier on before doors, but I don’t think anyone was prepared for Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. Audio from the set is available at the end of this post as an exclusive free download!
N-Type is a name that has been synonymous with the dubstep scene since the early days. One of the best Dj’s in the business and one of the funniest radio hosts you’re ever likely to hear. His set was full of big, brash tunes with unashamedly punishing sub weight. His label Wheel & Deal is set to release more amazing music in the near future too, so keep your eyes on that.
By the time Bar 9 took to the decks, I started flagging, hard. What I caught of their set seemed to be an all out tear out tour de force and the punters were lapping it up. So much so the dance floor was bending.
As always a big thank you to Mosaix, Liam, Matt and the rest of the Dubbed Out boys, Liquid Christie for providing jokes on stage banter and warming the crowd up. Bannerworx and Shak for being thoroughly nice blokes and the sound technicians at RSH Audio for providing a ridiculously weighty Funktion One rig.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Kent promoters take note, this is the standard you should all be following.
