Subloaded is one of the UK’s biggest and longest running bass music events. First emerging in the baby stages of Dubstep, in October 2004 - Subloaded has been around even longer than London’s monstrous DMZ! Founded by Bristol’s Dubstep godfather and Tectonic label boss, Dj Pinch along with Bristol Grime pioneer DJ Blazey… To quote DJ Pinch himself: “Subloaded is all about big weight of bass from a chest rattling soundsystem”. With this devotion to the sub-bass creating an immense physical sensation for those on the dancefloor, Subloaded events are sure to rattle your innards and earplugs are very much advised!
Subloaded and its (now finished) smaller midweek sister night Dubloaded have both been fundamental in the growth of Dubstep’s popularity in Bristol. Name almost any pioneering dubstep dj and you are likely to find that they made their first Bristol appearance at a Subloaded party, with such luminaries as Mala, Loefah, Addison Groove, Skream, Benga, N-Type, Hatcha, Youngsta, Distance and many more having all graced the Subloaded decks over the last 7+ years.
Subloaded is without a doubt one of the UK’s largest bass music events, with heavyweight showcases under their belt including Bloc Weekender, In:Motion, Corsica Studios, DMZ, Fabric and every dubstepper’s choice summer getaway, Outlook Festival in Croatia.
So get ready for the bass-weight, as Dj Pinch himself says: “If your chest ain't rattlin'... it ain't happenin'”
"One night at Subloaded can change your life. It's a club night as seminal as DMZ or FWD>> in London and DubWar in NYC, and if you really want to know where the global bass music we love so much is headed next.. you need to be there." Mary Ann Hobbs - BBC Radio 1
