HEAVY 001 recap

HEAVY had a dancefloor from 9:30 to 2:10!

We kicked off with Anna Morgan DJ on deck and a storming and relentlessly positive live performance from Jeo da dancer, and then he and his colleague Nico Fresh rocked out on the dancefloor continually until the music ended. I loved seeing the dancehall moves to drumnbass, footwork, ghetto tek, jungle, dembow, reggaeton, grime and more throughout the night! WE had a great mix of people there, and pretty much everyone hit the dancefloor in all kinds of styles, including multiple breakdance circles, couples dancing, bootshaking and rave styles of all kinds. So good to see musical fam from all across NY's musical spectrum who were down for our particular kind of eclectic bass mayhem!


Mel G threw down such a fantastic and high energy set of detroit sounds from ghetto tek to footwork.

Riobamba absolutely slayed the scene with a wide-ranging and ferocious set of reggaeton, dembow, dancehall, 3bal, jersey club and all kinds of other heat.

Oblig brought the Grime heat, switching it up more at the end of his set.

and I wound it up by unleashing some of my beloved ragga jungle and early dnb at the end of the night, combining with new sounds for a half-vinyl, half-mp3 set of all bass madness!

Such an honor to bring this together and feeling pretty blessed by the positive high energy everyone brought. Especially great to work with Dj Anna Morgan, we're gonna do some fun things together in 2016!

Big cheers to Heather for awesome pix - check out the full set!

Introducing... HEAVY - a new night from Ripley and Anna Morgan!!

I'm thrilled to announce an event that I and esteemed comrade Anna Morgan are at the helm of. the concept is simple: Heavy bass music in all its many forms. We are kicking it off in December and then will roll out a more regular gig in the new year!

Big bad bass sounds find a new home with the HEAVY crew starting Tuesday December 15!

We roll out multi-genre bass vibes from all over the world with an eclectic curation of grime, kuduro, jungle, dancehall, drumnbass, bassline, footwork, dubstep, tribal guarachero, dub, baile funk, miami bass, moombahton, future bass and anything else that drops it thunderously low.

 Residents Ripley (Dutty Artz/ Surya Dub) and Anna Morgan (JunXion/ Vitamin B) provide the groundwork for this foundation-rattling event with proper dark basement vibes!

Our special guests that showcase our eclectic approach to bass sounds:

Riobamba (Dutty Artz / Pico Picante), throwing down 3bal bass via Mexico and beyond,
Mel G (Teklife) playing juke and footwork
Oblig (lowlifeNYC) bringing that UK grime
