Dat (B)ass

About a month ago I got peer pressured into buying a ticket for this year’s Kill Halloween, without really knowing if I’d actually go, since I have been very good at finding excuses not to go at events lately. I have to admit that this semester is a fucking pain in the ass and that it affects my global motivation/energy, but that’s not a good enough reason to miss good shows. This year again, Saintwoods did not disappoint. The show featured Boys Noize, Oliver, Tommy Kruise and High Klass. Our pre-drink lasted a little longer than expected and we *kind of* missed almost everyone but Boys Noize (which to be completely honest felt okay before getting there, but even the last five minutes of Oliver’s set was fucking great, so now I regret it a little). I’ve also been told that Tommy Kruise gave quite a show and I’m guessing that since Saintwoods rarely invites bad performers, High Klass might have been pretty fun too.

I wanted to see Boys Noize for a while now, but I could never attend his shows. I wish I could’ve seen him when he was doing his Oi Oi Oi tour, since it was such a good album, but I was too stupid and I missed him in 2007. Also, his album after that (Power) was so shitty that it made me stop following what he was doing until a few months ago when I found out he was teaming up with Skrillex to try to drop some bombs. And bombs they dropped, holy shit.

During his performance last Friday at L’Olympia, he mainly played his newer solo stuff as well as his releases under the alias Dogblood (with Skrillex), but he also dropped some good ol’ slowed down Ghettotech (think Work this Motherfucker by Dj Puff & Deeon…). I have to admit, his stuff is better live than at home or in your car, but it’s definitely worth a listen. Here are a few tracks he played:





I'm really not sure if he played the original or this remix from the great Jacques Lu Cont, my alcohol level was quite high during that night, but both tracks are good. If you want to listen to more of his stuff, make sure you check Dogblood’s Soundcloud and Boys Noize’s Soundcloud as well.

I still have to listen to more of Oliver’s stuff, but I have to say that from what I’ve listened to, these guys are really great. Like I said earlier, we pretty much missed all of their set, but we were lucky enough to be there when they played their track Move Your Body. Great release:


What a night… Quite the hangover the next day too though, but totally worth it. Have a great week ladies and gents (see, my “class” is slowly increasing with every post) and don’t forget to say hi to your mother for me (whoops).
