Jubilee grew up in South Florida and her obsession with late night club music was powered by Miami bass, breaks and grime. She was a dedicated listener to local electro DJs on the radio, and eventually headed to New York City. Her rise to nightlife fame began with local events, earning notoriety for her deep knowledge of electronic genres and expertise in bass, uncommon to the city’s music scene. Now, she’s bringing that deep booty bouncing bass to the EVR studio, and you can hear her spin live on Worldwide Smash tonight at 12am ET.
Jubilee holds down a residency at the Flashing Lights parties at 88 Palace in NYC, with fellow residents DJ Ayres (The Rub) and Nick Catchdubs (Fools Gold Records); hosting the night to a slew of influential guest DJs that have included Todd Edwards, Nadastrom, Toddla T, La Roux, Flosstradamus and A-Trak with countless stellar names in underground music showing up to the party.
She’s done podcasts and mixtapes for XLR8R and has also played alongside heavy hitters like The Juan Maclean, Simian Mobile Disco, Digitalism, Jokers of the Scene and Green Velvet. Listen live at the stroke of midnight for some hair-raising hell-rioutous bass!
You gotta give it up, NY, there is a LOT going on right now. This week I’m lucky enough to have a veritable parade of massive sounds coming through, so don’t stray too far from the speaker.
Kicking off the show I’ll be speaking with Emch, the mastermind behind Subatomic Soundsystem. Every new project from these guys spins heads, and for good reason. The latest set of tunes pairs the legendary Lee Perry with none other that Ari Up of The Slits, and again David Frickin’ Lynch, so you know it’s on some other shit. They’ll be celebrating all this craziness with a blowout at Love with some other friends of the show, man like Liondub, Matt Shadetek, Spoek Mathambo Jahdan Blakkamoore and more. Details below.
And repping Brooklyn just as hard, we’ll have a special guest mix from Dave Gee of the Darkroom parties. Along with Enkryption Projekt, Code D & Trigon, he’s been absolutely blowing up new bass hot spot Coco 66 proving that when it comes to low end, there’s no touching the BK. This week at Darkroom the mother fucking Bomb Squad is going to be in the building for Bomb Squad Enters The Darkroom, so you know how THAT’S going to be. If you haven’t seen Hank Shocklee throw down, it’s about time you changed that right quick.
If you’re a fan of bass music and aren’t up on Trouble & Bass I don’t really know what to say to you. They’re basically Brooklyn bass royalty at this point, and are responsible for some of the most balls out events in the borough, and around the globe. This week The Captain will be coming through along with vocalist 77Klash (who you might know from the Jahdan Blakkamoore record and his recent 12″ w/ AC Slater) to basically tear shit up. It’s going to be all I can do to maintain a hold on the show, but w/ The Captain at the controls, you know you’re in good hands.
I first got put up on Shigeto’s music when Shlohmo guested on the show earlier in the summer. Amidst Shlohmo’s set of mostly unreleased (and sometimes untitled!) beats, one in particular stood out, and I had to ask ‘whaat’s THAT!’ So now I know, and hopefully you do to. Shigeto’s music shows the benefit of years studying music theory, but also the prescience to realize that you can only get so far playing by the rules. His “Semi Circle” EP is out now on Ghostly International, with the album Full Circle following soon.
FaltyDL was actually in the building for the very first episode of Worldwide Smash to visit his friend and my first guest, Mike Slott. Such is his humility though that he was content to listen as Mike did his thing, and our listeners remained unaware that not one, but two of the freshest producers of current electronic music were in the booth that night. This week he’s back to do his thing proper, and I’m not exactly sure what to expect other than some amazing and challenging music.
With only a handful of years releasing records, FaltyDL has pretty much confounded anyone trying to categorize his music. His album Love Is A Liability for Planet Mu was one of the most acclaimed electronic releases of 2009, and his singles and remixes for labels such as Rush Hour, LuckyMe & Hotflush continue to push in new directions, all the while remaining DJ essentials. His DJ sets tend to include everything from current dubstep and house to classic IDM and drum and bass, but don’t be surprised if we hear something completely different this week.
The “All In The Place” EP is out now on Rush Hour, and New Yorkers can catch DL this Friday 8/6 at the always banging Turbotax party at The Cove in Williamsburg along with Todd Edwards & Lemondade.
I’ve been looking forward to having Gaslamp on the show for a minute, but dude is a busy guy! Between near constant international tours, holding down one of the hottest weekly events in the world, producing smashing albums, and working on own material, he’s all over the place. But we had to do it! We both got our start DJing in San Diego, and it’s beautiful to see him blowing up by sticking to his guns and playing the same grimy shit that was clearing floors back in the day out there. His DJ sets are the stuff of legend, and you can BELIEVE that it’s going to be a take over this week. I’m already hearing rumblings of some more heavy folks coming by the studio, so it’s sure to be a family affair. And if you’re in NYC, you can catch GLK in-person the following night, Friday 7/30, throwing down with the Flashing Lights folks. Massive!
