Wednesday Night Gets Bassik for Dubstep Denizen Flux Pavilion
by Dan Goodman
The monthly Bass-centric dance party known as BASSIK is moving to a different day for this month's edition of electronic offerings. Just a day away from the usual Thursday slot, this Wednesday at the Republic the fellas at Winter Circle Productions are bringing in the apex of world renowned talent in the newest dubstep craze with Britain's own Flux Pavilion.
Joshua Steele, professionally known as Flux Pavillion, has made a indelible mark in his genre. At the ripe age of 23, the UK native Steele not only has been featured in some of the biggest festivals and bills that dubstep has to offer worldwide, but already has had an accomplished career with noteworthy productions and an ongoing stream of accolades. His hit single "Bass Cannon" not only exemplifies the main weapon in his arsenal of sound, with that aggressively saw-like synth that carries the main hook, but also made his stamp in the everyday dialogue of dubstep artists and fans. Another famed production is the track "I Can't Stop," which carries a ballad-like lead over the tilted lyrics.
Steele continues to not only create stellar productions, but also has a few remixes that are deemed timeless within the community. One track in particular that was all the rave upon its release, almost teetering on being abused by the amount of play it received in clubs and mixtapes, is Steele's remix of DJ Fresh's drum and bass anthem "Gold Dust". Steele takes this already massive track and builds it to a drop where he releases his signature sound on yet another catchy melody. Another megahit for the young producer and DJ is his take on Freestylers' track "Cracks" where the peak yet again amounts to that piercingly loud leading tone to lift the arpeggios to a banger.
Supporting Flux Pavillion in an already highly anticipated event are UK natives Cookie Monsta and Brown and Gammon. Part of Steele's label, Circus Records, the two should complement the overall motif of the label and genre as well as warm up the crowd for the main event. This month's BASSIK will be dropping the low-frequency tones louder and bigger than ever before. The doors for this special event open at 9 and should go until late. Tickets are moving quickly but are still available here.
