About 40 minutes ago I finally recovered from the Clockwork party last Friday. Will, Smudge, and I thought we should keep the good times going this Saturday at Velvet Lounge. I got a BOATLOAD of unreleased exclusives from Diplo, JWLS, Melo, Heartbreak, Will Bailey and other goodies that I’m going to test out before my Halloween set the next week at Uhall. If you’re out and about on U St and you know you will be, pop in for a drink and a high five. Just in case you think im bullshitting you, POW here is a Facebook event page to serve as your certificate of authenticity.
If you’re trying to turn your brain into straight bass mush, I know who you gotta be chillin’ with this weekend. Ricky Skullcrusha, aka RSK, from Pittsburgh, PA will be joining Smudge and The Baconator Himself, Reed Rothchild, at Velvet Lounge this Friday night for Keepin’ It Reel.
RSK’s arsenal of tunes are gonna fit right into the “anything goes” format that Smudge and Reed Rothchild have excelled at playing for their fellow party people of DC. RSK cannot be limited to playing a single genre. While he will spin anything from juke to drumstep and moombahton to Baltimore club, he’s especially known for his talents within the heavy bass arena of dubstep. Take a quick tour of his SoundCloud page and you’ll hear an abundance of sounds ranging from video game noises to wobbly bass to hip-hop vocals. Also, check out this track he created with Doctor P – “Black Books”. This track has tons of mainstream exposure so I’d be real surprised if you haven’t heard it by now. In fact, I’d be surprised if you haven’t seen RSK takeover your city yet. He’s shared stages with Dieselboy, 12th Planet, Borgore, and Skrillex, to name a few. But this weekend he’s gettin’ down and dirty in the shitshow we like to call DC.
To celebrate RSK’s touchdown into Our Nation’s Capital, we’ve got a supa sweet and exclusive drumstep track for ya – LL Cool J – “I’m Bad” (RSK Remix). ”I’m Bad” is majorly wobbly update on LL Cool J’s original from the 80s. Don’t hurt yaselves with this one. Pro-tip: You’ll really get into it if you put on your best Addidas jumpsuit and a supa stanky bassface.
So! This Friday! Put on ya bassface, wasteface, and any other weird afflictions you might wanna show off for the party people and get out there to Velvet. Reed’s makin’ rave bacon.
