Line-up /s0n!ka, Joe Wize, C-Sick, Max Echo, Enoe, Bookz
.s0n!ka. is a 21 year old Costa Rican producer now living in New York City. His music hovers in that area between UK Funky and Dubstep, drawing on the percussive bounciness of one and the deep, heavy atmospheres of the other, often skirting between the two tempos. His roots in D&B are also evident, manifesting itself in a brash attitude and a sci-fi aesthetic. His skills as a drummer also shine through in the beats. He is one h...alf of Cosmetics alongside UFO!, and the two of them were also part of a band with DJ Abstract. Recently, .s0nika. has dropped singles on Subdepth, Forecast, and RVNG. He has forthcoming material on Brap Dem!, Hot N' Heavy, Kursed, and Bassism.
Joe Wise (BFM / Brooklyn NY)
C-Sick (Turrbotax! / Brooklyn NY)
Raised in Flint Michigan, C-Sick grew up along with the sounds of Techno, Electro and Ghettotech (then called simply “bass” or “booty-music”). Infatuated by these local sounds and the emerging Midwest hip-hop scene, C-Sick was at the center of it all, djing at illegal parties, and working at Lansing’s first record store devoted solely to hip-hop, electronic music, and hardcore/punk.
As dubstep gained traction in the states, and 2-Step and garage were resurrected by artists like Burial and Kode 9, C-Sick (along w/ Contakt, Rem Koolhaus, Mayster, and Video City) returned to their roots launching the first party in the United States devoted to UK Funky/Future Garage/whatever you call the interesting stuff that isn’t quite Dubstep. The event, TURRBOTAX®, quickly found success as part of the NYC bass trifecta (alongside Trouble & Bass and Dubwar) with a devoted following and world class headliners like Untold, Martyn, Todd Edwards, Mosca, Bok Bok, Hot City, Kingdom, Martin Kemp, Doc Daneeka and more.
C-Sick’s sets are as unpredictable as they come, referencing his massive vinyl collection and 14+ years behind the decks. You might hear a classic techno set, or everything from UK Funky dubplates mixed w/ juke, dub, hip-hop and classic 2-step. Expect the unexpected.
