Miami's isn't shy about it's love of bass. Big-booty bass so fat that when the room shakes you could almost mistake it for an earthquake. So it's no surprise that the dubstep genre has finally boiled over from the underground. It's natural evolution from electro-house - think dirty, choppy beats but slowed down - means the scene and its fans are growing quickly. It also begs the question: how long until Kanye West starts taking credit for making dubstep popular?
On the heels of successful one-time dubstep events, like The Vagabond's monthly Get Low party, comes King Kong Bass at PS14 (28 NE 14th Street, Miami). Notorious Nastie, Juan BassHead and REVMiami.com have partnered up to deliver a party that is being described as "bananas" by Nastie himself. "There gonna be a guy in a gorilla suit walking around," he adds. And with BassHead, Wreck, Peasant with Feathers, Serge Roc, Keen and more on the bill for July 18, PS14 might have a few speakers blow out before the 5 a.m. closing time.
Party starts at 11 p.m. with everyone 18 and over welcome as long as you hand over a $5 cover charge. For more information call 305-358-3600 or visit notoriousnastie.com.
