Great Lakes Sports Festival and more

Since the early days of Michelangelo, there have been dynamic parallels between art and the human form. The time and study of both can lead you into fascinating places with hard work, proper technique and the ability to believe in what can happen when the mind and the body connect.

This weekend, Erie is lucky enough to have an event showcasing the ultimate collaboration. Saturday, August 29th and Sunday the 30th the Great Lakes Sports Festival takes place at the Erie Bayfront Convention Center, and will present some of the finest athletes from a variety of disciplines right alongside some of Erie’s most hard working and talented Artists. Hosted by Jack Sullivan (NPC National Heavyweight) Owner of Erie’s REAL TRAINING & FITNESS and Gary Udit (NPC Regional Chairman) of Pittsburgh PA, the Great Lakes Sports Festival will highlight some of the greatest athletes from around the region. This unique festival not only champions athletes and people passionate about health and fitness, it appeals to the whole family (kids under 12 get free admission!) and offers an assortment of activities, vendors and events packed into this two-day Festival in Erie, PA.

  JULY 1st  2014  2 Step Tues: Features:  NATASK  814 Bass Crew,  Plasma Pool REC.

As the summer is getting under way, we here at the BASSBLOG wanted to spotlight a weekly event happening in the Mighty Steel City of Pittsburgh PA, that has taken a Strong arm approach at re surging the Underground Sounds of 2 Step and UK Garage.  Slowly becoming one of the most Dominant weekly events in the 412,  2 Step Tuesdays,  Dishes up some serious Heat.   We recently had a chance to Pick the Brain of  MIAA GLO RIGBY, the events Host and promoter and here is a little bit of what we found out.

Residents:  Eryn Evans, Syneater,  Hanna

1. How long has the event been going, and who are the founding members and residents?

“2-Step Tuesdays has been going since Jan 7, 2014. We’ve been through many venues but we are currently at Gus’s Cafe in the Lawrenceville neighborhood. My goal was to find residents already into the garage sound… I started this night because I was getting bored with the music at parties. It was all so mainstream and had that “dark & dirty” vibe…but mostly everyone played the same sound. I was always a house lover and a friend of mine when I started partying spun speed-garage. As I reconnected with those garage roots and would talk to others about it they would all say “Oh man I love garage but you never hear that stuff played!” If so many people wanted to hear it, why did no one play it? So I decided to change that. We had two weeklies in Pittsburgh end in the past two years and The city was definitely looking for the next big thing. I’ve personally never been someone who wants to DJ, i connect to music through dancing – and I wanted to go out and dance to the music I like! so I grabbed three of the best Djs I know, put them all in a room every Tuesday, throw in some drink specials, and 6 months later its still growing every week. I encourage all genres as long as it has a garage feel to it, break beats, real, authentic dubstep & grime, bass line, speed garage (which i affectionately call ‘hardcore for big kids’) We started out as a bi-weekly, that changed after about 3 weeks. At first it was also just my residents and a monthly guest, but that changed quickly as well when so many people wanted the chance to play. That is really what its all about for me. Getting these DJs, who you would never think would play garage music, to come out and throw down a set. They spend so much time digging through old and new stuff and then get infected. Its awesome when i go to parties now and someone we’ve had as a guest throws some 2-step or bass line in their set. And this new generation of EDM enthusiasts aren’t quite aware of the spectrum of music and I’m hoping by introducing people to it we can get it to revive with the next generation of DJs, although I have to say I don’t mind the underground.”

2. How do you feel your event impacts the Western PA EDM scene, and with such a Massive history of Broken Beats in Pittsburgh, How do you see this furthering the landscape for DJs and Producers currently?

Its crazy because a year ago everyone told me a garage night would never pick up. They’d laugh and say “No one plays that stuff because they don’t make it anymore.” or “its too hard to find.” Just because something doesn’t have its own beat port category or you can download the top 100 tracks doesn’t make it hard to find, it means you have to make a soul connection with the sound and really get into digging things up. That ends up being what everyone loves about it in the end.

Miss Haze : The Queen of BASS (San Francisco Style)

UntitledMiss Haze ( BitchPlz/ MuopiaRecords/IrieCartel/ShelterSF/WarriorDrumRecord    https://soundcloud.com/misshazesf

https://www.facebook.com/MissHazeSF

http://www.beatport.com/artist/miss-haze/320311

In the highly competitive market of San Francisco’s thriving nightlife, DJs are forced to a higher standard of excellence and Miss Haze is nothing short of the best. Equipped with a whole lot of talent, she started Djing at the age of 15 and quickly became a skilled and respected tastemaker with an ear for electronic music. This triple threat DJ/MC/producer captivates people with her magnetic personality and vast knowledge of music. She is currently the bay area’s leading female DnB DJ, earning her residencies with Irie Cartel and Shelter, SF’s longest running DnB night. She threw her own successful night at Bass Cellar, making her an essential contributor to San Francisco’s Drum and Bass scene. Her continually growing catalog of remixes and original music spans several genres and her most recent EP “Smoke City,” out on Muopia Records, made it to #15 on Beatport’s top Drum and Bass charts. Collaborating with several artists from all around the country and upcoming releases on multiple labels, her production skills are in high demand. People stop and notice when this diva rocks the stage with her innate ability to tap into exactly the right vibe to mesmerize the crowd. Doing vocal performances with hard hitting artists such as Ill-esha, Freaky Flow, Wick-it the Instigator and the Widdler, (just to name a few) she rocks the mic with charismatic style, seductive melodies and a sassy flow. Most recently Miss Haze joined forces with Corrine, another hard-hitting bay area female DJ, to form the dynamic duo ‘BITCH PLZ!.’ Together they deliver a captivating stage show full of booty poppin’ basslines and sexy swag.

Always at the forefront of bass heavy music, she is an intrinsic part of San Francisco’s edm community. Whether it’s on the mic, from behind the DJ booth or in the studio making hits, Miss Haze owns it and throws down ill-tight sound wherever she goes.
