After a much deserved break, B-Side Los Angeles is back and fresher than ever; ready to serve up yet another bass heavy, soul nurturing, sonically innovative year overflowing with underground vibes and top notch sound. We commence 2017 with our very special two year anniversary show on Saturday, February 18th, reinforced with Function1 sound. Our two year anniversary show, an 18+ affair partnered with Xcellerated at LA's Union, will play host to a slew of LA debuts, including Canada's Distinct Motive and Colorado's DMVU as well as the residency debut of our very own Chapman. Also helping us celebrate our birthday in style is Hakeem, Oxóssi, the one and only 6Blocc and the night's master of ceremonies, Al Ross. Vendors and live art for our event will be provided by Executive League, Drumz and Eyemax.
Helping kick off the festivities for the night will be B-Side residents Hakeem and Chapman, followed by a very special b2b set between half of Deep, Dark and Dangerous duo Distinct Motive and B-Side resident and Crucial Recordings artist, Oxóssi. Fellow Deep, Dark and Dangerous talent, DMVU, will continue heating up the decks with his highly volatile and distinct style as the night's MC, Al Ross, will lend his vocal presence to each set throughout the night.
The night's headlining act, 6Blocc, is a highly seasoned Los Angeles scene veteran who got his start DJing back in the late 80s mixing hip-hop and electro beats. His time in LA's early hip-hop scene instilled within him the skills he's now known for throughout the world. Between 1997 and 2005 6Blocc (known as R.A.W. at the time) dropped over 100 vinyl releases, mainly under the jungle and hardcore genres. In 2006, 6Blocc was born, as he dial back the tempo from 175 to 140 BPM, and has since cranked out over fourteen vinyl releases and dozens of digital releases on labels like RCA, Ultra, Lo Dubs, Phantom Hertz, Moonshine, Terminal Dusk, Sub Depth, and his own remix imprint 6Dub; gaining him a large global following for his prolific, inventive and highly nurtured musical stylings.
