TheMixster.com has teamed up with our friends and San Diego neighbors at The Madero Group & SUBMNL SOUND SYSTEM to give away a pair of tickets to their upcoming show, UPTOWN OCEAN BEATS at the Ruby Room, featuring one of the downright raddest line-ups I have seen in San Diego all summer long.
Get crazy lost in a tingly galactic gaze of space-y grooves, sexy & percussive garage, and ruthlessly filthy trap with a host of both international & Cali-based cool characters.
Topping off the night will be the San Diego premiere of Night Slugs’ GIRL UNIT: the 20-something Londoner/mastermind who was reworking the 140BPM half time template and infusing gorgeous melodic structures over layers of hip hop lyrics before Tyler the Creator was old enough to stay out past curfew and WAY WAY before tumblr rap was even a thing. Compounding a diversity of inspired sounds over addictive club-ready basslines, GIRL UNIT’s approach to hip & hop and R&B was, and still is, way over everyone’s heads. And moreover, his music is bass-laden & FUN as hell, through and through.
Recently tucked into his new LA abode, SALVA, off the forever fresh SF-based label, FRITE NITE, will be popping down the coast, and coaxing the floor with his curiously & ever-evolving brand of sound. With a collection of fresh reworks integrating addictive 808 kit sound constructions, along with his highly-attuned arsenal of rare spacey beats, deep tribal-influenced house, and general darkness, as always I’m looking forward to the diverse spectrum of sound and no doubt, thoroughly engaging dancey set that “the problem” SALVA will be furiously pushing out through the front line of bass cabinets.
In addition, SD’s own URBN:LGND and personal favorites of mine, Austin Speed & CRMNL, the esteemed pioneers of SUBLMNL SOUND SYSTEM who are also co-hosting the evening, will be putting down a salacious selection of tunes you should always go out of your way not to miss.
The team also just announced that BOMB SHELTA SOUND will be bringing their BASS cabinets out to Uptown Ocean Beats to make sure the place SHAKES proper!!
Also, we just confirmed, the VJ for the evening will be NORTH ELEVATION who is going to fill the room with eye candy and take you on a visual journey throughout the course of the evening
