Bassgasm 10 full lineup & schedule revealed



Are you ready for Bassgasm 10 and the Wall of Bass? I mean, really ready? Just in case you weren't convinced that today's impending takeover of First Avenue doesn't have something unique to offer everyone, Gimme Noise spoke with Bassgasm founder 'DJ ESP' Woody McBride and Russia's own deep house representative Izhevski about the deep mix vibe that Izhevski will bring to the Entry.

Also, so you have a chance to map out your journey through eight hours of face-melting bass brought to you from around the globe, we will share the official lineup for each room of First Avenue.

Izhevski is a pioneer of the deep house genre. He founded one of the most influential deep house radio stations ever, Deep Mix Moscow, which has provided 24 hours of sexy, soothing electronic music for years with just a select handful of DJs. His style is eccentrically his own, combining elements of deep house and tech house with a softer brand of intelligent dubstep. "Izhevski is evidence of the cultural embargo we see in the USA against the art and culture of Eastern Europe," says McBride. "He is like the equivalent of Derrick Carter there."

Izhevski is armed with an impressive vinyl collection of over 3,000 records. "My favorite album in the collection is The Timewriter's Diary of a Lonely Sailor," he says. Aside from spinning records, he has also been recording tracks with another Moscow producer, Gorje Hewek. "Everything inspires me," he says. "Family, friends, journeys, nature and of course the music." He is currently a resident at the infamous Moscow club, Propaganda.

Deep House is slowly making its way to the US, and to Minneapolis in particular. Recently, McBride teamed with locals Casey Borchert and Aaron Brooks to start a Deep Mix night at Honey. "The genre is very wide with soul on one end and techno on the other end so we like to talk about what we do here as Deep Mix, which is a blend of all that with a lean towards the laid back, meditative, dub, spacey, trippy vibe," says McBride. "Jeez," he exclaims, "why don't I just call it Trip House?" It is hard to pin down. The sound offered by the Deep Mix Minneapolis crew has also been influenced greatly by the infamous HardWax Berlin sound.

The deep mix vibes will be perfect to get lost in when taking a break from other harder genres being showcased tomorrow, such as hardstyle. Below is the line-up for each room this evening, in order of last to first:
