BASSINGHAM NYE Pre and Post Parties [recap]: ill.Gates, RUN DMT and more
If you brought in 2016 along with 20,000 of your “closest” friends in Birmingham, AL that fiend for the bass just as you do at Bassnectar 360, there’s a pretty good chance that you hit up one of the BASSINGHAM shows either pre-nectar or post, or if you’re like me, both. Sweet Science Radio along with Zen Awakening, Capital Crown, Soma and Pass the Good Ent. brought the heat live and direct to the scene with two absolutely bangin’ parties, one to get Bassheads hyped the night prior to the insanity, and one immediately after the show. And oh yeah, not to mention the fact that the artists playing were some of the the man’s homies and favorite collab partners, with sets from ill.Gates, Jantsen, Craz and more on 12/30 and RUN DMT b2b Yheti and Bleep Bloop on NYE. There were a few different options for after parties and other shindigs, but none that could even hold a stick to the vibes circulating throughout Old Car Heaven, a spacious venue with some legitimate boogie room. Here are some highlights from the shows.
12/30 ft. ill.Gates, Jantsen, Craz, PPLPRSON & Andy Bruh @ Old Car Heaven
Long-time friend and music partner of Lorin’s, Dylan Lane aka ill.Gates teased the crowd with a taste of Bassnectar by dropping Bassnectar’s remix of the ill.Gates + Captain Hook track “Open Your Eyes”.
Needless to say there was a LOT of dirty bass music being played the night before the show, and fans traveling far and wide to Alabama couldn’t get enough of the Bassnectar remixes and collaborative pieces that were being dropped all throughout the night.
12/31 ft. RUN DMT b2b Bleep Bloop, Yheti, Spankalicious, Exit 9 & Chark @ Old Car Heaven
RUN DMT performed post 360, and Yheti and Bleep Bloop joined forces, composing a glorious duo of some of the rawest talent in the bass music scene that gave concert-goers their second wind after a solid 3 hours of the King of the Sound.
