Slayers Club & Surya Dub present
SUB SWARA LIVE!
Bay Area massive, hold tight! Two of the most bass-heavy and genre-defying crews in SF come together at last to bring you a night of epic proportions with headliners Sub Swara! Slayers Club & Surya Dub have been blowing up the underground across the country and worldwide for some time now but this marks the first time everyone will be together under one roof in our hometown!
Rounding off their sophomore album tour for "Triggers," Sub Swara close out their fall leg right here in SF at Public Works. Sub Swara has raised the stakes this time around, as the duo's second album continues the group's exploration and blending of different spaces in bass music and draws from a completely unique sound pallete that marries both live and electronic elements and traverses through dubstep, hip hop, UK funky and unclassifiable bass genres. Triggers features collabs with Dead Prez, Lyrics Born, Kendra Foster of Parliament Funkadelic, horns of Antibalas and a host of master session musicians from around the world. The live experience incorporates drumming, re-composition and improvised sequences throughout their shows.
What they're saying about "Triggers" -
"It sounds like this time their beat vacation took them on an intergalactic spaceship ride, with giant rhythms and chirps that sound warped in from the outer reaches of the universe but retain a distinctly warm, human quality." - Fader
"It's not just that the beats and bass are heavier: fusing dubstep, hip-hop, dancehall, and South Asian music, the duo's sound has gelled, its elements more deeply integrated and its drama more all-encompassing." - Beatport
This event also marks the SF debut of Fresh2Death, the live musical collaboration of DJs Greg Fisk and Ben Samples, hailing from Colorado and now part of the Denver Bass Squad. Fresh2Death produce a wide spectrum of genres from Glitch-Hop to Downtempo and Electro to Dubstep.
To round out your bass-culture experience, we'll also be featuring local threads and artwork! Clothing cartel Grassroots California will be debuting their artist edition Fresh2Death hats! Check 'em out at www.grassrootscalifornia.com.
