South Central Autumn 2012

Bass music has a myriad of forms. There’s the off kilter genius of the likes of Jamie XX and Burial, the hooky toils with pop and drum patterns SBTRKT expertly weave and then the face melt histrionics the likes of Bassnectar and Skrillex specialise in. Either way it all boils down to the sound of the youth of now, and South Central are particularly good at bringing the kind of headfuck amalgamations that only the most fearless of the ravers out there love.

i’m due to interview the duo shortly, but ahead here is a quick round-up of everything going on in their world right now to introduce you to the crew. The above is their remix of Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s Hadouken collab ‘Daylight’ whilst below features another speaker shredding rework this time of DJ Fresh (who they support later on in the year).

once the interview is live I’ll post the link up here, but you can catch the duo in any of the following UK dates

Nov 2nd – Rock City – Nottingham, UK (supporting DJ Fresh LIVE)
Nov 15th – Pyramid Centre – Portsmouth, UK (supporting DJ Fresh LIVE)
Dec 18th – Warriors Dance Festival, Brixton Academy – London, UK (Supporting the Prodigy)
Dec 19th – Warriors Dance Festival, Brixton Academy – London, UK (Supporting the Prodigy)

WHP Announce Line-ups

Yesterday the video was out and getting people in the mood, now the full gamut of WHP options is out and established for 2012. Rather than print them all ad hoc here you can check out the full listings AND buy tickets over here at Skiddle, but the ones currently making my eyes pop out a little are the SBTRKT helmed showcase on Sat 6th, TEED bringing Derrick Carter and a few more for a Halloween special on Fri 26th October, Fri 9th November seeing RBMA in the house with Flying Lotus, Squarepusher, Jamie XX and Hessle Audio, and maybe the best of the lot, with Resident Advisor pulling together Orbital, Modeselektor, Chris Liebing, Marcel Dettmann among many more.
