With an all-star bass music lineup like Definitive, Habstrakt, Trollphace, NGHTMRE, Zomboy and Flux Pavilion, it’s no wonder that last weekend’s Bassrush Massive was an absolutely epic show.
Having not been to a Bassrush show in about 6 months (a personal record I hope to never set again because it was way too long…), I was really excited to feel the bass from the PK’s, feed off the the bass minion’s energy, scope out some new music, and check out what Insomniac’s growing Bassrush brand had to offer this go round.
Each artist brought their own heavy-hitting style to the stage, as attendees could hear anything from wonky bass music, to trap, to dubstep, DnB and everything in between. What I would dub a basshead’s heaven, Bassrush has expanded from smaller theater shows to taking over the NOS Events Center in a massive way (pun intended ;)). The show was basically a mini-festival, with plenty of chill-out sitting spaces, as well as food and merch vendors. The overall vibes were that of any Insomniac festival, purely euphoric and full of great energy. The crowd was absolutely stoked to be there, and were dancing from the very beginning of the show, until the very end of the show at 3am.
The production at this Bassrush show was noticeably improved from the last show I was at. The laser game was on 100 – and the overall stage set up and tweaks to the design truly turned the NOS center into a heavy bass mainstage that Bassrush fans can only dream about being at every festival. As the Bassrush brand continues to prove all “dubstep is dead” believers wrong, the team seems to be adding more shows to their calendar by the day. Cough cough, the amazing Bassrush Uprising show coming to LA in May, and the crazy Bassrush EDCLV week parties and MORE.
