  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.

♬ FEATURING ♬

TC ★ [UK, DNB]

Soundcloud – http://soundcloud.com/tcdnb

There are few figures in electronic music who manage to combine commercial success with underground respectability. The Bristol-based producer and DJ known as TC is one such individual, utilising his talents to comfortably flit between remixing Number One artists and unleashing rave-razing bass-driven monsters pitched straight at the underground.

Sitting atop of an anthem-packed discography that includes some of the most memorable dancefloor tracks of modern times, and with remixes for the likes of Rihanna, Damian Marley & Nas and Tinie Tempah behind him, TC should need little introduction to any fan of bass-driven music.

Packed with anthems such as the utterly unique ‘Deep’ featuring MC Jakes, ‘Jump’, ‘Rockstar’ and the enormous ‘Where’s My Money’ (famously remixed by Caspa), ‘Evolution’ earned TC the titles of ‘Breakthrough Producer’ and ‘Producer Of The Year’ at the BBC Radio 1Xtra Drum & Bass Awards, while catapulting him to the top of Radio One’s National Dance Chart and earning unprecedented radio support from everyone from Pete Tong and Jo Whiley to MAH and Zane Lowe, with the latter bestowing TC with highly regarded ‘Record Of The Week’ title on more than one occasion.

After taking a short break from the spotlight, 2011 saw TC return to the raves and the airwaves in style, dropping one of the year’s biggest D&B bangers ‘Tap Ho’ while turning his hand to dubstep on ‘Concrete’ and drumstep on ‘Burning Starlight’ (both featuring vocals from Dread MC). Released through his own freshly launched record label, Don’t Play, the artistic freedom offered by being his own boss is already clearly paying dividends for TC.

EMALKAY★ [UK, Dubstep/Trap]

Soundcloud – http://soundcloud.com/emalkay

A brilliant and inimitable producer, Emalkay refuses to define himself by anything other than his own musical evolution. From his early years producing grime and garage, right through to 2011 and the imminent release of debut album ‘Eclipse’, he has continued to break new ground and move forward with each and every track he makes.

Away from the hub of any kind of scene, the Birmingham-based producer made things happen for himself from the start. Early experimental releases on his own Morphic Sounds label put his name on the map, and it quickly paid off as he subsequently signed to Boka. Following a string of well received 12”s for the label, he then found a home at Dub Police, and hasn’t looked back since.

CALVERTRON ★ [UK, Multi genre]

Soundcloud – https://soundcloud.com/calvertron

Following a string of speaker rattling productions and highly acclaimed remixes, Alex Calver aka Calvertron has found himself the subject of attention from some of the biggest and best artists and record labels in the business. His tracks are consistently seen at the very heights of Beatport’s charts and, featured across the UK’s national radio stations, are spreading like a pandemic – with his unique sound gaining support from a diverse selection of the world’s most influential DJs, including the likes of Fatboy Slim, Tiesto, Busy P, Benny Benassi, Eric Morrillo, Roger Sanchez, Diplo, and John Digweed.

Jon Quest, Exclusive Interview.

With the End of 2013 closing, we wanted to make sure and Highlight some of the absolute Heat on the calendar even though its starting to get really cold outside!  BASSBLOG sent field reporter  Jason “Iggy” Imig out to retrieve some more upclose looks at MC’s in the Regional Hip Hop scene.  With A huge show coming up Dec 19th at The Crooked I   Erie PA put on by 2189 and BENCHERS UNION, and a brand New Mixtape about to set it off, we wanted to find out what exactly makes Pittsburgh MC, Jon Quest tick. BOOM!

1471316_650351318321039_351864525_n

Most MC’s these days are one dimensional…they find their niche and stay there. The story weaver, the battler, the metaphorical cat but few and far between do you find one who encompasses all these in one physical form. Jon Quest is one of those dudes. Having come up through the historic Shadow Lounge era of Pittsburgh hip hop, Jon earned his chops getting involved in their Rhyme Cal series of events. As one half of the Varsity Squad duo, with his homey Beedie, Jon has been able to branch out of the 412 area and start to build a solid fan base of his own.

Currently Jon is working on his third mixtape in his Seasons series, appropriately titled Season 3. Make sure to catch Mr.Quest when he comes to the Crooked I December 19th with Copywrite, Mic Excel& Short Moscato, and Erie’s own Ill Noyz!

You are in the beginning stages of working on Season 3 of your series of mixtape. Are there any producers or MCs you are reaching out to that haven’t been on your past releases?

 I wish I could answer this right now but as you stated yourself, I’m in the beginning stages of working on it so it can really go in any direction. I will tell you that I will bring back some of the crew that I did work with as far as producers and I’m going to try to reach out to some new artists for features and producer work! It’s still up in the air right now. I have some new jams on deck that aren’t 100% finished or just haven’t been the right time to release it yet.  It might even be a whole new JQ…just never know. Stay tuned! There are going to be surprises i can promise you that!
You have been coming up to Erie pretty steadily since Varsity Squad came up to 2189. How have you seen it change since then and what is it that makes you excited to play here?

Before I came up to Erie, I always thought to myself “man I would never go Erie…what’s even up there?” but now Erie is like my 2nd home. The energy and love that I receive as a solo artist, or group, is incredible.  It’s not always like that here in Pittsburgh, I’ll be honest. Erie is a special event every time if its 100 or 10 people in the crowd for the show
You were/are apart of the whole RhymeCal events. Do you feel that has had an impact on your MCing and if you could explain to people reading this how rhyme cal differs from your typical rap battle ..

Rhyme cal has definitely helped shape how I rhyme. It forces you to use your imagination and get out of the box which is what I like to do anyway so rhyme cal was just that advanced course to the school of emceeing for me. For the people reading this – RhymeCal is a freestyle competition with several categories. Although you will have battling one on one at some point in the game but you’ll also run into crowd topics, or may even have to battle a fictional character in 45 seconds to an instrumental. Best emcee gets the grand prize.

What other music do you dig besides hip hop? Who have you been listening too lately?

I try to listen to everything brother – If you live in a box you’ll produce that box type music. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of TDE, Infected Mushroom, 90s hip hop golden era just to get my mind right to create Season 3 the way I want to create it.  It’s really all over the place when it comes to listening to music.
You def have an affinity for video games…favorite system and what games have you been spending time on?

 I’m Sony all day! I recently started playing “The Last of Us” again. I beat it in 3 days…tweak mode haha. I should’ve taken my time so that’s why I’m giving it a second spin. I copped the PS4 but Call of Duty Ghosts is the only game I have for it and just like any other COD game…it gets old quick.
Congratulations on your newest addition to your fam. I know you take being a father very seriously. How does being a dad/husband impact you doing your thing musically?

The thing about being a family man and doing other things that can consume your time is all about finding the balance. It’s hard to do but somehow I manage. Every once in awhile I will let life consume me and put music on the back burner and end up getting writers block for however long it may be BUT at the end of the day family is more important than music. Music is just a stress reliever for me and something that I love. When that day comes that I can take care of my family from doing music as a career well then…my story will change but for now it is what it is.

KEYS N KRATES…BIG THINGS!! From BASS NATION.

Over the last couple of years, STEEZ PROMO and BASS NATION have provided some of the most up front, cutting edge Bass Music Events…. and have helped to put the fans in a more up close and personal perspective of some of their favorite artists.  December 20th PITTSBURGH PA will get a hefty dose of choice Broken Beats, and Bass.

BASS NATION PITTSBURGH :   Keys N Krates   Winter Tour 2013

1463014_616122815115871_1247703427_n

 

 

 

Keys N Krates formed in 2008 out of a desire to do something different. They wanted to take the remix/electronic sound out of the studio and onto the stage, creating a new live electronica experience. The Toronto-based trio – comprised of the high-energy Adam Tune on drums, synth-master David Matisse on keys, and internationally award-winning Jr. Flo on turntables – began by locking themselves in a rehearsal room for six months to create and finesse their unique sound and identity. The result? A blend of hip-hop, electronica, and jam that truly shows off the artistry of the live remix. Keys N Krates collage raw samples and twist them with live instrumentation, creating a unique party sound. With two live off-the-floor mixtapes and a slew of official remixes under their belt, the outfit is set to release their next EP “So-Lo” on Dim Mak Records in 2013. Over the last year, KNK toured with and played alongside artists including; Pretty Lights, Lotus, Skrillex, Girl Talk, Kid Cudi, Metric, Timbaland, Zed’s Dead and more. In 2012 the band continued to make an impact on the festival scene, playing major shows at Wakarusa, Ultra Music Festival, Movement Festival, Osheaga and Sonar in Barcelona. The band also produced several hype machine chart topping remixes for Bassnectar, Adventure Club, Zeds Dead and Nelly Furtado. To really grasp what Tune, Matisse, and Jr. Flo bring to the stage, you have to see it up close. Their shows are filled with high-energy sets that are made to be witnessed live. The guys continue to craft and grow their sound and style, exposing audiences worldwide to the Keys N Krates experience.

Faded Fest After PARTY!!!! with WORTHY

    •     Its Burning up!!!!  And Only getting Hotter!   July 27th thru 28th…. PITTSBURGH PARE5ET, Collective Thought Project & 1337 Come together for the first time ever to bring you the Faded Fest After Party with San Francisco based producer WORTHY!

      When it comes down to all the press and hype, his name says it all. He is Worthy. With an in-depth knowledge of production, mixing, and performance, Worthy has the insight to play for his audience, cultivating intense positive energy on the dance floor that can only be portrayed as superhuman. His sound can be described asorganic breakbeats with a mix of future house, 80’s, booty bass, and techno. As Carl Cox said, “The Worthy sound has always been powerful, rocking, funky, bass-driven music at its best, and for me this is the new wave in house music.” Worthy has received the recognition of major producers who have played his tracks including Sven Vath, Diplo, and Richie Hawtin, among many.

      From salty aired islands to dark club basements, Worthy pays reverence to the traditional form of classic house while tripping off the mark and sinking into the euphoric less-charted territories of booty-clapping bass. Touring the globe, Worthy has performed at renowned venues like Hive in Switzerland, Sankeys in the UK, Electric Pickle in Miami, and Mezzanine in San Francisco. Beloved by his fanatical devotees, Worthy has drawn huge crowds to catch his heart-palpitating, sweat-inducing sets at festivals like Coachella, Ultra, Love Parade, and Burning Man. In 2011, Urb Magazine named Worthy one of the Top DJ’s To See at Burning Man, along with M.A.N.D.Y., Andy C, Soul Clap, Seth Troxler, and The Crystal Method.

      Growing up in Washington DC, Worthy was inspired by the early American rave scene. Upon moving to New York in the late 90’s, he was exposed to artists like LTJ Bukem and Stacey Pullen whose music inspired him to play records across multiple genres, from techno and breaks to hiphop and drum n’ bass. In 2001 he swapped coastlines, moving to San Francisco to pursue his music career. He team up with Claude VonStroke as well as fellow east coast brothers Justin and Christian Martin to create the prodigious outdoor party, Dirtybird, which quickly became an institution and a requisite destination for die-hard Bay Area and international fans. Dirtybird Records hatched from the popularity of these parties in 2005, and since then the label and parties have enjoyed tremendous success fueled by the obsession of their cult following.

      In 2007 Worthy’s breakout track, Irst Te, released on Dirtybird, quickly established his notoriety as a producer. Concurrently, Worthy released Crack El EP on Leftroom, and soon after, the track Work The Walls and it’s accompanying music video on his personal label, Anabatic Records. Originally intended as an outlet for the release of his own music, Anabatic quickly branched out to sign new artists. Riding the frontlines of today’s music scene, Anabatic Records has been providing a steady stream of edgy, high quality tracks.

      In recent years, Worthy has produced a consistent slough of top releases. The release of Worthy & Yankee Zulu’s Concumbia charted in the Top 10 on Beatport for tech house in 2009. He also released various tracks and remixes on Discobelle Records. In the fall of 2011, Worthy teamed up with UK producer Eats Everything. Their first track, Tric Trac, released on Dirtybird received industry praise. Played by artists like Diplo, Boyz Noise, and Cats N’ Dogs, Tric Trac wildly grew in fan appeal moving on to become one of the Top 10 on Beatport for tech house once again. Additionally, Worthy’s simultaneous releases, No Cure and With This combine dirty ass-clapping breaks and gritty synths. The pinball effect of his intricate basslines traverse across the cavern of your ear canal moving inward and blowing your mind. Illustrating the diverse juxtaposition of his range and sound, his February 2012 release, Why You Waiting, on Alive Records, is like glassy water on a quiet morning sea, his beats & melodies mirroring each other, creating a melodic interface that warms the soul. As Worthy states “I want to push my new sound, which is leaning more toward a breakbeat old-school vibe, but still want to keep with the fact that I play house and techno. My focus is to stay innovative and authentic and to continually reinvent myself as an artist.”

      Worthy has an original flavor that will amp you up, leaving you feigning for more. The synchronization of Worthy’s music speaks to the connoisseur, the DJ, the groupie and the novice alike. Finding balance and unison across all electronic music platforms, his music is unparalleled. He reads his crowd, breaking and fusing genres, blending styles, and establishing an energetic dance floor camaraderie that makes even the most skeptic hater’s booty shake.
