It is with heavy hearts, yet a celebratory spirit, that the B-Side Los Angeles family will be presenting its final show after a strong, three year run on Friday, July 7th at LA's Union. We will be closing our curtain in the most proper fashion, reinforced by Funktion-One sound with the help of two of dubstep's trailblazing pioneers: Loefah and Joe Nice. Offering opening support for these legendary forefathers will be B-Side residents Oxossi, Dubwol and Watchmaker, who will kick off the night at 9:00 p.m.
The seminal work of esteemed producer pioneer Loefah was formative in the creation and development of the worldwide dubstep sound. His list of early achievements include releasing on one of the most important labels involved in the genre's genesis, DMZ, collaborating with the Digital Mystikz on the DMZ nights run in Brixton, and being a part of Mary Anne Hobbs' notorious Dubstep Warz radio show that introduced the genre to the global masses.
Performing alongside Loefah will be none other than North American dubstep pioneer Joe Nice, who is globally recognized as the first and most respected dubstep DJ in North America, making him an equally pivotal player in the global growth and success of dubstep. Since 2001, Joe Nice has been performing extensively across the world with his bag of highly coveted 10" dubplates, his enthusiastic stage presence, upfront music selection and pristine mixing abilities; all of which serve to grow his already worldwide fan base.

The B-Side family would like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who has helped support our mission to push and grow the underground dubstep culture in LA for the last three years; it's been both an honor and a pleasure for everyone involved. Although B-Side's curtains are closing, we must keep in mind that the global community's love for dubstep only grows stronger and continues to be thrusted forward with mighty force, creativity and ingenuity every day. This powerful art form will continue to resonate deeply within all of our souls long after our last show, and we find great peace in knowing that that the dubstep genre itself is significantly thriving and flourishing on a worldwide scale. Needless to say, we're humbled to have been able to contribute to such a strong movement and passionate, global community.
