Zeitgeist Sessions. A journey through bass music on vinyl.
The Hardcore Continuum, London's bass heavy scene where techno meets dancehall, is constantly progressing, the last main influences being cape town house, berlin techno and chicago juke. After spawning dubstep, grime and funky house in the last couple of years, it is bubbling again with fresh ideas, new beat patterns and sub frequency styles. As long as the new sound isn't fixed it's hard to give it a name. So we present you the Zeitgeist Sessions.
A night with El-B, the key player in the beginnings of dubstep who has been a major influence to dubstep acts such as Skream, Benga or Burial. He is on a roll again pushing the sound further yet again. For his appearance at the Yaam he brings a special selection of records alluding to the cuban music that has so influenced his musical career!
El-B will be supported by DJ Ace, a true master on the wheels of steel. Owner of Tam Tam Records, Aachen and resident at Tam Tam's Massive Tunes party for over a decade now, he has witnessed all shifts of the Hardcore Continuum since it all started when Acid Techno turned into Jungle. Tonight he will be releasing fire on the dancefloor with his unique selection of dubstep, funky, 4x4 techno and next level shit in general.
Warming up will be the mighty Craftsman, and Mene Axelrod who has prepared a special mix for you to enjoy and get ready for this party! Both are regulars at the Dubcafé Shanglhangl where they present their take on the nuum every Sunday night...
Host of the night will be Tom Battery, also of Dubcafé Shanglhangl fame. He will start the night with his special selection of dub, roots reggae and lovers rock, catching the mic afterwards to guide you on this journey.
To guarantee you an extra sub loaded experience all DJs will be playing good old vinyl – no digital djing here!
