BIG UP MAGAZINE, DUBSPOT ONLINE, and SCION A/V PRESENT:
"When I Was A Youth" issue release featuring:
====== BREAKAGE [Digital Soundboy, UK]
To quote Mr. Roots Manuva... “Breakage is a man with an ear for deep, deep, sub-sonic frequencies. He goes in low. I thinking he's talking to sea-life. He's talking to the squid”.
Moving effortlessly through styles from drum and bass to dubstep, Breakage has proved himself to be one of the most versatile operators in either scene to date. His recent widely acclaimed "Foundation" album featuring David Rodigan, Newham Generals, Roots Manuva and even Burial, has left us all 'speechless', but Breakage can't stop and his new album is already mastering his takeover plan with an upcoming album. Can we just say "HARD"?
Read the interview with Breakage in the new "When I Was A Youth" issue of Big Up.
======= GOTH-TRAD [Deep Medi, Japan]
About two years ago, this Japan's prodigy made his first American appearance at our second issue release show, and spread his own take on the Deep Medi sound far and deep. We're utterly excited to have him return to San Francisco before taking on his first Coachella set. This is for the heads, just hear for yourself:

======= BASSWEIGHT DOCUMENTARY SCREENING
Documentary reviewed in UK's Guardian and named "one of the best documentaries made about the full spectrum of dubstep" by kode9 is a feature length film that offers an unparalleled insight into the subterranean world of Dubstep. Skream, Benga, Kode9, Mary Anne Hobbs, DMZ and many more featured in the film and "far from merely being more evidence of our accelerated culture, Bassweight could mark an important shift in how breaking - music scenes are presented. It's time to give music fans a chance to look forward, not back, at the scenes they love." Movie screening starts at 9 PM.
San Diego's dub plate specialist, EshOne is one of the dinosaurs still cutting dubs, and still in denial about whomp, wonk, bro, and anything purple (almost anything). He's definitely ain't half-stepping and spreading the movement via his blog sdddubstep.com and San Diego's club night Dead/Technology.
======= DIALS [Soundpieces, San Francisco]
You have definitely seen Dials run around with his head cut off booking the most exciting music shows in San Francisco, via Change The Beat and 103 Harriet, including Low End Theory SF. Now it's time for him to relax and play a chill solo dj set.
======== Hosted by AUDIO ANGEL [BADNB, San Francisco]
All this extravaganza will be accompanied by the divine voice of Audio Angel. Only good vibes from this lady, so get there early to get the full experience.
