Bassgasm 4 lineup announced
|BG4: Summer edition at First Avenue|
But this event isn't necessarily for them (though they're invited). It's for all the people who like it loud - and we mean loud - from neon colors to the massive "Wall Of Bass" erected by DJ ESP Woody McBride over the last three installments at First Avenue and for that matter, the last 20 years of his internationally-recognized career as a techno DJ.
And so we present Bassgasm 4 on July 22, another brick in the Wall, so to speak.

Inked Atlanta badboy and DMC champion Klever is our party-maker pick this time, easily one of the world's top turntablists. He was last in Minneapolis for New Year's Eve 2009 and a small Scion party in 2010, but never for a party of this magnitude. Vintage trance jock Christopher Lawrence is in the mix as well, at one point enjoying status as a Minneapolis regular but not since the early '00s. Chicago electro-chick Dani Deahl will bring her big bag of dirty beats to the table and our own hometown headliner Chuck Love will keep things following a positive groove as he does so well. But if the dark side is your thing, make a point to hear dubsteppers SPL from Portland and Deathface from New York City.
"I'm stoked to come back to Minneapolis again, those kids always know how to have a good time," Klever told us a few weeks back. "I hear it's going to be a monster."
Indeed it will - one snaggle-toothed, burly behemoth fueled by enormous basslines.
MIXES: Klever's Carpe Mixxx (Mediafire) & Dani Deahl's Ghetto House Radio mixx
