BASSWEEK 2017

Dan Monic | | 0 Comments

Bassweek 2017

Join us for the 7th annual BassWeek and you will enjoy a week+ celebration of bass music and culture. Since the early 90’s, Toronto has had the reputation for having the best drum & bass and break beat events in North America. The biggest names in the genres always ensured they had Toronto on their tours and constantly praised the dedication and energy of the fans. The rise of dubstep has only heightened and expanded this tradition.

BassWeek is a chance to showcase the finest talent from around the world all in one week of dedicated bass-crazy parties in the city’s best venues. It’s also your opportunity to connect with thousands of bass music fans from around the region and enjoy what is quickly becoming THE bass music event in the world!

This year we continue to grow with more events, venues and artists included with your wristband!

BASSWEEK 2017 is almost here. Let the anticipation begin!

5 REASONS TO GO TO FREAKOUT

Michael James Peros | | 0 Comments

freakoutpost

Top 5 reasons why you need this year’s Freakout
by Michael James Peros

5. The Venue: Maison Mercer

Maison has been an upscale nightclub for some time now so seeing D&B headliners inside may be a bit of a surprise for some people. The difference is that Maison may attract people which may have never been to a D&B event. It opens the playing field and gives everyone access. Don’t get it twisted though, the layout of Maison is proper, the sound system is crisp and the visuals are on point.

4. The Local Artists: Marcus Visionary, Lush, Hydee, Mr. Brown, Caddy Cad & MC JD.

None of these artists should be considered any less of talents than the headliners. It just so happens that they live in the GTA!

3. The Tradition of Freakout

DESTINY666_2004Ever since 2004 Destiny has been hosting the Halloween tradition of Freakout. Starting in 2004 as ‘Destiny666‘, to ‘Return To The gRAVE‘ in 2005, and finally taking on the ‘Freakout‘ name in 2006.  In the eyes of many, Freakout is considered THE D&B party of the year with various artists but more importantly different styles of D&B.

2. Black Sun Empire, Noisia, Delta Heavy

1. Every Rendition of Harley Quinn Imaginable

QUINNWith the success of Suicide Squad in theaters we are sure to see every rendition of Harley Quinn imaginable. What adds to the authenticity of this costume is Harley Quinn’s smeared makeup and distressed hair: something that normally happens during a Destiny rave anyways except now you don’t need to worry about getting looks on the street. Last year’s costume probably required fishnets – that you probably ripped. This is the only time you can re-used ripped fishnets and get away with it. Besides, being “Daddy’s Little Monster” at a rave is actually pretty normal behaviour.

————-

Halloween is not a gift-giving holiday, unless you consider gifting yourself with a ticket to this party. Red and blue hair dye is only socially appropriate on this holiday. You can’t expect to be positively received by your grandmother at Christmas dinner for your Kool-Aid coloured hair.

See you at Freakout!  Get your tickets HERE before they sell out!

WHO ARE DIRTYPHONICS?

Dan Monic | | 0 Comments

dirtyphonics2

“WE DON’T FOLLOW RULES”, Dirtyphonics collectively admit. “WE CREATE THEM”

With a Dim Mak album release and multiple continent-spanning tours to their name, the French electronic artists have earned the right to keep doing things their own way. Comprised of Charly Barranger, Julien ‘Pitchin’ Corrales and Julien Lignon, Dirtyphonics is a forward-thinking Bass Music phenomenon that made their name on defying labels and limitations.

dirtyphonics3“We started by playing in Metal bands”, recalls Charly. “Our sound was always meant to be powerful and high impact. From the day we started, we’ve challenged ourselves to create something new – we love to push boundaries”. With a unique stage presence and energy the boys did just that in translating the vibe and excitement from their head-banging days into Electronic Dance Music.

The group found its footing in a potent blend of muscular Bass Music, mixing high-octane Drum and Bass, Heavy Bass House and Dubstep that spoke to a new generation of dance music fans. Refusing to be limited to any given genre, Dirtyphonics made has incorporated dramatic tempo changes into their tracks, issuing an unmistakable clarion call to their contemporaries that they would not be governed by old rules and outdated notions of performance propriety. “Our influences come from everywhere” Pitchin says. “We have been raised listening to so many different musical genres and we definitively don’t want to be stuck in a specific one. We have the most fun mixing them all together to create something unique”.

Dirtyphonics crash-landed into dance music’s consciousness in chart-topping fashion, releasing their 2008 debut single “French Fuck” to the tune of a Beatport #1 hit. Follow up singles “Quark” and “Vandals” proved the act’s ascension was no fluke, showcasing the group’s signature genre defying low-end heavy sound. The group quickly became a hot commodity in the remix world, lending their talents to tracks by the likes of Skrillex, the Bloody Beetroots, Marilyn Manson, Steve Aoki, Benny Benassi, Excision, Datsik, Borgore, Nero, Kaskade, Knife Party and Linkin Park.

dirtyphonics1In 2013, Dirtyphonics released their debut album “Irreverence” on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records label, showcasing the range of music they create. The critically acclaimed effort features singles “DIRTY”, “Walk In The Fire”, and “No Stopping Us”, and ran the stylistic gamut from anthemic electro to frenetic Drumstep as well as incorporating thrash guitars, pounding drums and other vestiges of the fierce heavy metal music that influences their art and characterized their past.

After this they released their “Write Your Future” sophomore EP with features including Grammy winner Trinidad James and Trap king Uz on “Hustle Hard”, Dubstep legend 12th planet, and singer Matt Rose, among others. Following this, Dirtyphonics shook the Drum and Bass world one more time with they’re anthem “Anonymous” that has been played well over a million times on Soundcloud.

2016 is set to be Dirtyphonic’s biggest year yet, with their infamous “Neckbreaker” North American tour, titled after their hit collaboration with Dubstep mad man Funtcase.

With a freshly bagged DJ Mag’s “Best French electronic band” award and new EP to be released, Dirtyphonics is re-inventing, once again, the rules of Bass Music.

BASSWEEK 2016 WRISTBAND FAQ

Dan Monic | | 0 Comments

Vinyl-Straight-Wave-Wristband-Purple

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! BASSWEEK! Even though this is our 6th Bassweek we still often get the same questions over and over, so we’ve compiled this list of Frequently Asked Questions.

 

What does the wristband get you?

The Bassweek Wristband is your pass to get you into all Bassweek events for either free or a reduced rate.  The full list of events can be seen here:  CLICK HERE

 

Where do I pick up my wristband?

You can redeem your wristband ticket for your Bassweek Wristband at the first Bassweek event you attend. There will be Destiny representatives at the door to do the exchange.

 

Can I take my wristband off?

IMPORTANT! No, you can not. The Bassweek Wristband is your ticket to the events, and yours alone. It must remain attached to your body at all times for the entire week. The wristband will become invalid if removed for any reason. The wristbands are made of high quality materials and do not ‘break’ or ‘fall off’. Security will be checking the wristbands upon entry to each event to ensure they have not been removed or tampered with. We know all the ‘tricks’. We know what you look for.

IMPORTANT! If you have a job or some other requirement preventing you from wearing a wristband for whatever reason and you can’t hide it under a wristwatch or long sleeves, do not attach it to your wrist. In previous years we have had people attach their Bassweek wristbands to their ankles. DO NOT REMOVE YOUR WRISTBAND! Doing so will VOID your wristband and you will not be allowed into the rest of the shows.

 

Can I shower with my wristband on?

Absolutely! It dries quickly and won’t come off.

 

Can I eat my wristband?

We don’t recommend it, but it could be a good fibre supplement!  Please note: Bassweek wristbands that have passed through your intestinal tract are no longer valid.

 

You can still buy a wristband HERE.  See you on the dancefloor!

DESTINY MEMORIES: HYDEE

Dan Monic | | 0 Comments

Destiny22YR-07-612x612

NAME: HYDEE
ROLE: DJ
GENRE: DRUM & BASS / DUBSTEP

Although I have so many memories from Destiny events over the past years and it’s very hard to pin point one favourite memory.

I am going to have to say one of my most memorable memories would have to be the last WEMF in 2012 in Madawaska. All around a solid weekend but what made it the best was playing the main stage “Tower Of Destiny” in front of a massive crowd, everyone dancing and going nuts in the mid afternoon in the middle of a field. Something about playing on that massive rig and stage the experience was so surreal and loved every minute of it.

hydee

So honoured to be part of and playing at Destiny’s 22nd anniversary with Andy C, Brillz and a ton of talented locals @ Sound Academy Friday Aug 14th.

Cheers to Destiny on your 22nd b-day and to making more amazing memories with you guys and the Toronto junglist crew!
