With deep roots in the DJ culture, spanning the last 16 years, as well as being the founding member of the 814 Bass Crew, this is one of the first looks at this up and coming producers personal take on the music that has been a big part of his life and Electronic music as a whole all while trying to create new paths and sounds to broaden the previously type casted molds of individual genres.

We are getting your week started off right! Here at the BASS BLOG, we are excited for the up coming release “I keep It Moving” by NatasK, his first full length album release.   As NatasK has been digging deep into the realm of Bass, Broken Beats and a variety of tempos and Speeds, NatasK has started to find an added level in his production adding some dynamic collaborations with some amazing vocalists. One of these vocalists being LAKE CITY FRESH.  a native of Erie Pennsylvania.  Their Featured Track “Never Lose”  will surly get your attention.  With choice drums, Punchy bass, and a driving rhythm and melody that LAKE CITY FRESH is really able to articulate upon.

FRESHartBLOG

Inspired by the RnB greats like Luther Vandross, Lenny Cooke, Al B Sure, R. Kelly, Jagged Edge, Tank, and Michael Jackson,  it was apparent that Lake City Fresh was destined to write music from an early age with over 250 songs written by the young age of 13.  With the Name Lake City Fresh,  a nickname given to him by his brother for his desire to always be clean, we finally have an up close look into this vocalists come up.   After graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP)   Lake city Fresh found himself back in his home town of Erie PA, and after some hard work and exploration of sounds he released his first mixtape… “The Enlightenment”  to then be followed by now classics “More than Music” , “BayBreeze Music” and the most current Project “Presque Isle Boii.”   With a spark of a musical revolution and the forging of a new sound Fresh has been exploring multiple styles and genres, ultimately entering him into the Bass music spectrum with this Collaboration “Never Lose” with NatasK of the 814 Bass Crew, also an Erie Native.

PromoPIC1WIth the sucess of his mix tapes, Lake CityFresh Has been Artist of the Year in the Rock Erie Awards  of 2012 and 2013.  Lake City Fresh has dropped tracks with PA heavy weight BOAZ, as well as finding himself on Yo Gotti’s “Hard”.  Featured also by the likes of Un Kasa,  LCF recently opened for RnB greats H-Town.  From the west coast to the East Lake City Fresh has started to work with some of the top artists in the industry all while finding his own creative ways to excel his passion in singing.   Be on the Look out for more work from NatasK and Lake City Fresh on  NatasK’s up coming full length Album…. “I keep it Moving.”

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.
