★★★★★ Bassbizniz + The Savoy Hotel Present ★★★★★
On Saturday March 3, Bloom Nightclub is teaming up with Bassbizniz to bring you a double headliner, fundraising event that will truly shake the foundation of The Savoy Hotel!
Doctor Jeep delivered one of the most talked about sets of Bass Coast Festival last summer, while Fixate‘s halftime wizardry was extremely well-received in The Grove at Shambhala Music Festival. We’ve rounded them both up for a stellar night of music, adding local heavyweights SHINY THINGS MUSIC and Calmpound to open the night off with a bang. First tier tickets are just $15, buy directly through this event page ^^ or at the Savoy’s front desk!
To the benefit of Music Heals Canada, a portion of the door proceeds will be donated to Music Therapy programs across Canada – in line with their annual, nation-wide A Night Out For Music Heals 2018 Event.
★★★★★ Doctor Jeep ★★★★★
Brooklyn, NYC
Doctor Jeep is a 27-year old Brooklyn resident known to most as Andre Lira. While attending college in Boston he quickly gained notoriety as one of the city’s most eclectic young selectors, mixing everything from drum & bass, dubstep, and uk garage to techno, electro, and classic house. With DJ sets mixing the past, present, and future of dance music in some of America’s best clubs, and festival appearances at Outlook, Bass Coast, Bonnaroo, and EDC, he has proven to adapt to any vibe and make it his own style of party.
Production-wise, Jeep’s music has been described as “a style somewhere between the forward-thinking bass mutations of Cosmic Bridge, the grinding 808 electro of Swamp81, and the breakbeat-heavy sound of early 90′s UK rave music.” With releases on a wide range of international labels such as NYC’s Trouble & Bass (R.I.P.), Vancouver’s Aufect Records, and Nottingham’s Tumble Audio, and support from tastemaking DJs such as Claude VonStroke, Shy FX, Hannah Wants, J:Kenzo, Machinedrum, and My Nu Leng to name a few, the future looks bright for this multifaceted producer.
★★★★★ Fixate ★★★★★
London, UK
Declan Curran, aka Fixate, comes from a generation that isn’t locked to the notion genre, he is product of UK musical innovation with his sound pallet & productions traversing styles such as drum & bass, jungle, dubstep and grime.
His debut release, ‘Pum Pum’ / ‘System Malfunction’ on Diffrent Music, immediately caught the ears of the great and good of the electronic music world with it’s discombobulating rhythmical patterns and clever fusion of multiple genres. Support came from DJ’s as diverse as Toddla T, Sam Binga, Alix Perez & dBridge amongst others, with the latter releasing two of his collaborations with Manchester’s Chimpo, ‘Bun It’ & ‘Dumb’, on Chimpo’s ‘Out An Bad’ EP a short while later.
Following on from the success of these initial tracks, he was tasked with writing his first solo EP for dBridge’s hugely respected, taste-making label Exit Records. The ‘Throwback Therapy’ EP was released in May 2015 to much acclaim, with the 4 tracks demonstrating the wide ranging influences and artistic flair of their creator.
He has since become a flagship artist for the label, with his follow up ‘March On’ EP and work as part of D&B supergroup ‘Richie Brains’ garnering praise from critics and fans alike. November 2017 sees the release of his biggest and most ambitious project to date, the 6 track mini LP ‘What Goes Around’. With 4 solo cuts as well as collaborations with Dismantle & Skeptical, it builds on everything that has come before and cements his reputation as one of the most exciting young talents in UK bass music today, whilst he continues to hone his already impressive skills as a DJ for both Exit and events across the UK and Europe.
