On WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26th, 2013, STUNNA returns with another special edition of 'THE GREENROOM.' In this installment, we're treated to an exclusive guest mix from two of WASHINGTON, D.C.'s key figures in the DRUM+BASS scene: ROGUE STATE and JULEZ.
Regular listeners of BASSDRIVE Radio might be familiar with ROGUE STATE (aka BRIAN KAWAMURA) as he hosts the program 'TRANSLATION SOUND' alongside his wife MsDISDAIN (aka STEPH) every MONDAY (6-7pm Central). Showcasing the diverse sounds of his own label TRANSLATION RECORDINGS, ROGUE STATE's show features a full range of styles from his imprint (dark, melodic, dubby, and minimal) as well as further upfront sounds from global producers and like-minded labels. Future efforts from the TRANSLATION RECORDINGS camp will venture into other tempos and genres including DUB, HOUSE, and BASS music. Over the years, ROGUE STATE has been deeply integrated into the local music scene and has recently teamed up with fellow DJ JULEZ to bringing genre-bending shows to the WASHINGTON, D.C. metro area.
JULEZ (aka JULIAN PETERSON) is another pivotal figure in the D.C. bass music scene. A talented illustrator/graphic designer, curator of a wide range of electronic music styles, as well as a classically-trained musician, JULEZ acumen behind the decks has placed him in front of countless crowds of DRUM+BASS enthusiasts over the years. In 2011, JULEZ launched SubDistrick, the popular monthly D+B event in D.C. featuring a fresh, future-minded focus showcasing local DJs, producers and record labels. Most recently, JULEZ has joined forces with ROGUE STATE to bring a brand-new event entitled 'BASS AVENGERS' to the nation's capitol.
Later this evening of JUNE 26th, STUNNA, ROGUE STATE, and JULEZ triangulate at the inaugural edition of 'BASS AVENGERS' as the three descend upon U STREET MUSIC HALL in D.C. for an evening of JUNGLE, JUKE, FOOTWORK, and DRUM+BASS.
