Dub Bait is essentially an ongoing quest to bring forth the best in new music and newly emerging dance music genes. This July 28th our voyage takes us to the Garden Stage at Nozstock for a specially geared late night spot from 11:30pm through to 4:00am, as we explore some of the coolest sounds of our time.
The post-midnight vibes come courtesy of a slick selection of producers and DJ’s rolling out a wide-ranging selection of styles from around the world with the simple aim of dousing your twilight hours with something extra special. Come and sit, stand, dance or chill and prepare for something unique. An alternative to jarring beats and smashing bass, these rhythms come loaded with extra groove and melodies straight from the soul.
Bass Clef (01:25 – 02:25)
Headlining the slot is the massively respected producer, musical innovator, itinerant trombonist and sonic adventurer, Bass Clef. Criss-crossing musical boundaries making friends where ever he goes, armed with his trombone, effects, and percussive instruments of choice, he is a potent mix of dance(hall) inspirations – 21st Century urban roots music, Caribbean rhythms, afro-disco & Highlife, pulsating Techno, hypnotic brass, machine soul and classic ‘hands in the air’ rave dynamics all swirl around the Bass Clef sound-system experience – essential viewing!

Stumbleine (00:35 – 1:25)
One third of adored Lo-fi, Dubstep/Garage, chill-wave outfit Swarms; Stumbleine is no stranger to many of us. His tunes – epic and life affirming – are outstanding pieces of audio production and never fail to cause a commotion among the leftfield, post-dubstep music scenes and beyond. Shaping up for what looks to be a big year for Stumbleine; after a string of successful EP’s and remixes earlier this year, he plans to drop his debut album before the year is over. His exclusive performance for Dub Bait at Nozstock will be his first DJ performance as Stumbleine, so don’t miss a chance to see this guy before he completely blows up over the next few months.
Prymedia (00:00 – 12:35)
Visual media Luminaries Prymedia return once again to Dub Bait at Nozstock to perform another dazzling audio-visual performance. As the creators of this year’s on stage visual screens they intend to exploit the circular structures to devastating effect. Combining a live DJ set with totally original and uniquely manipulated visual content, Prymedia will take us on a sonic journey via a visual narrative, loosely based on their recent experimental research documentary trip to Cambodia.
Larsey (02:25 – 02:55)
Larsey’s interest has always been about the late night Festival music, that strange period where the initial kick of the high backs off, to the point at which you look for the more comfortable, social, dream-like interactions and vibes. Larsey’s DJ sets undoubtedly reflect this curiosity; intent on manipulating audience vibes in a multitude of ways through an eclectic selection of music with influence from all over the world. Influence of Cumbia, Highlife, House though to Glitch, Dub, and Leftfield in a form you might not expect. Be sure to also check his similar, more chilled dancehall infused mix than the one below, called ‘Late Night Cumbia‘ over at his soundcloud page.
Brocksteady (02:55 – 03:25)
Producer, Dub Bait website contributor and UK connoisseur of fresh transatlantic Club music, Brocksteady likes to take Footwork out of its Chicago comfort-zone and hurl it into outer-space. Expect Intergalactic Juke to suit a starlit sky, and experience the US born genre in a way that you’ll never have heard before. Below is Brocksteady’s follow-up to his ‘One Sixty’ mix we featured a few months ago, not so out of this world as ‘One Sixty Too’, its more dance floor orientated, listen here.
Tenz (03:15 – 03:50)
Subsize label boss, radio show host and ‘UK Bass’ producer Tenz joins Dub Bait to finish off the session in pure style as only he knows best. Prepare for a unique selection of smooth swag infused garage and house rhythms, with influences from Trap, Footwork and beyond. Renowned for his finishing slots, this set will undoubtedly connect with you in all the right places at a time in the night when it’s most welcome.
So join us if you can on the 28th July 2012 11:30pm – 4:00am, if you can’t then we’ll hopefully be back with a review post and lost of great footage from the event. Other details are on the flyer below.
