DRUMSOUND & BASSLINE SMITH (UK) + Bec Paton (SYD) - 25 August - Clubhouse


TJS roll on in heavy hitting force straight back to our favourite establisment The Clubhouse for our second monster rinse out of the month. This time we have with us some major drumnbass royalty on their first ever visit to the nations capital - DRUMSOUND & BASSLINE SMITH (UK)

With a serious support lineup including:

Bec Paton (SYD), Shifty Business, Jaycee, Buick, Izz, Riske, Key Seismic and Harlequin MC

D&B would not be the same without Drumsound & Bassline Smith (aka Andy Wright, Benjamin Wiggett and Simon Bassline Smith). Together the trio have body-slammed dancefloors from Derby to Durban and entrenched themselves as three of the finest drum’n’bass tastemakers on the planet courtesy of the blue chip label Technique Recordings – an imprint that celebrated ...10 years of killer dancefloor joints in 2009.

The magic has been bubbling ever since Wright and Wiggett met Bassline Smith at one of Derby’s mentalist Technique club nights in the summer of 1998. The Drumsound pair had been crafting beats for a year, having originally started as a crew of six artists, while Bassline Smith had carved out a reputation as one of D&B’s most influential players, with a career stretching back to the early ‘80s.

Together, they enjoy an impressive arsenal of diversity that’s ensured their place atop the D&B scene for over a decade. A peep through Wright’s background and you’ll find he’s a classically trained musician with a strong background in indie rock – an ideal platform for harnessing the energetic groove that makes Drumsound & Smith’s productions slide over the dancefloor. His Drumsound compadre Wigget has been a diehard D&B head since the womb, while also tipping his hat to his Jamaican roots.

Veteran Bassline Smith has been a funk and soul connoisseur for over 25 years and knows his way around a dancefloor blindfolded. As Drumsound & Bassline Smith they’ve enjoyed a firestarting musical synergy that’s played a pivotal role in taking drum’n’bass to the next level and carved out a patented ‘Technique sound’ in the process. In 1998 they were asked to complete a CD of samples for the respected Loopmasters Series laying testament to their original approach to beat construction.

From the music industry’s finest tastemakers, to the die-hard junglists populating clubs and festivals each weekend, one thing rings out loud and clear; no one can get enough of Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s floor-burning sound.

In 2004 their ‘Odyssey’ banger was judged Mixmag’s 10th best all-round dance anthem of the year and hit no.1 on the UK charts. The trio have also issued a string of stormers on the most respected imprints in D&B, dropping cuts on LTJ Bukem’s Good Looking Records, Bryan G’s V Recordings and Grooverider’s seminal Prototype Records.

Drumsound & Bassline Smith are also in hot demand from the most respected heads at Radio One and 1Xtra and enjoy regular flogging on the airwaves from Fabio & Grooverider, Zane Lowe, Mista Jam, Annie Nightingale and Annie Mac. The trio are aone of the few set of artists to complete multiple mixes for the famed Radio One, with a whisper of a request to complete a coveted Essential Mix in 2010. “We love them and have been supporting them since day one,” Mac tells.

As their popularity begins to steamroll, so do the requests. Drumsound & Smith have issued re-rubs of VV Brown’s ‘Leave’ at the request of Warner/Universal and Fugative - Supafly (Drumsound & Bassline Smith Remix) for Ministry of Sound. Radio One’s Annie Mac also personally requested the crew complete a remix of Chipmunk’s no.1 anthem ‘Oopsy Daisy’ for her Mash Hitz segment. They also achieved an unlikely feat when they made the Eastenders theme dope, completing a re-rub for the E20 Music Competition set up by the BBC.

No surprise that demand has seen the guys independently tour all corners of the globe setting the standard across America, Canada, Australia, France, Italy, Germany, Russia, Iceland, Spain, Holland, Sweden, Ireland, Czech Republic, Brazil, Poland, Switzerland, Uruguay, Norway and Italy. Further to this, they’ve represented at UK parties Fabric Live, Tranz-mission, Detonate, Slamming Vinyl, One Nation and Movement.

In 2009, Drumsound & Bassline Smith reached a milestone when their Technique Recordings imprint hit its 10 year anniversary of releases. With a philosophy firmly focussed on issuing tunes to satisfy the next generation of music lovers, the label celebrated its birthday with the critically acclaimed ’10 Years Of Technique’ LP which included the hits ‘Can You Feel It’ Clap Your Hands’ and ‘Law Of The Jungle’ and reached no.1 on the BBC Radio One and 1xtra charts at the end of November 2009.

With unstoppable momentum, the next 12 months are set to be massive for Drumsound & Bassline Smith. Always looking to evolve their sound, the trio will begin a new album project that will incorporate dubstep and electro influences, along with their trademark D&B sound. And those craving a blazing dancefloor experience shouldn’t go wanting either, with the trio’s busy touring schedule set to see them zigzag across the planet.

2011 has seen one of their remixes at no1 with DJ Fresh’s ‘Louder’ & two of their own singles, March’s Freak & the current one Close both been Radio 1 playlisted & Record Of The Week for Mistajam & Zane Lowe. Other remixes this year include Utah Saints - What Can You Do For Me & a new Moby single due out in October.

Bec Paton

There’s something special about seeing such a fanatical crate digger blaze
through around forty or so tracks in an hour — seamlessly combining hip
hop, electronica, broken beats and sometimes dubstep, in a really cool and
innovative way. Her stage presence is infectious too, and has earned her many
loyal fans.

Versatile enough to rock festivals like Days Like This!, The Great Escape,
Newtown and Surry Hills Festivals, Cockatoo Island, and Pete’s Ridge
Festival, she still sends chills down the spine at small parties like Dust Tones,
Frigid, Void, Civil Society and Boogie Down. Current residencies are Homebass
@ Home, Headroom and The Loft. She was the 2006 Mercedes Fashion Week
VIP DJ, mixed at the Reeldance event at the Sydney Opera House Studio, and
has a radio show, For The Heads, on Sydney’s 2ser 107.3fm.

Her music knowledge and technical wizardry behind the turntables allow
her to weave many different sounds into one intoxicating rhythm and the final
fabric is undeniably imbued with the funk—a fact readily proven by her trail of
devastation on dancefloors around the country.

Some of the artists Bec has supported:
DJ Krush Kid Koala Amon Tobin DJ Kentaro Luke Vibert Spank Rock Saul Wiliams El-P Bassnectar Skream Benga Four Tet Nightmares On Wax Flying Lotus Boom Bip Mike Paradinas Hudson Mohawke Zero DB Harmonic 313 The Streets GrooveArmada Dynamo Productions Ursula Rucker Ben Mono High Contrast Raiden Joker Goth Trad Decoder Ring
Tes La Rok The Herd The Avalanches Hermitude Hilltop Hoods The Bird Unkle Ho

“And just quietly, no in fact very LOUDLY, Bec Paton absolutely ripped up
the support set. Nice work, some seriously deep selections in there. Lets
see that name on more bills please!”
Gaslamp Killer 2008, The Brag

“We arrived to find the lush sounds of ex-Canberran Bec Paton doing a
warm-up set that... would have been more than enough entertainment
for one night. Her sublime mixing of records that would pose problems to
the most talented of selectors formed a beat-laden, diverse, bass-y and
beautiful introduction to the night ... and seemed like a tribute to all Krush
is about: gorgeous sounds juxtaposed by drums-of-death.”
DJ Krush 2008, BMA Magazine

“I enjoyed the next act more than the headliner… Bec Paton’s set absolutely
blew me away. Glitchy, bassy and just downright cool, I couldn’t help but
get my ‘groove awn’… and was fixated for an hour in some kind of dubby,
wacked-out hypnotic trance.”
Raiden 2008, InTheMix

“Bec Paton is one of the few Australian DJs who can do more than string
together an hour’s worth of good tracks.”
Cyclic Defrost Magazine
