Two of North America’s most dedicated entities in drum & bass — Bassrush and RESPECT — band together to present a night of blistering sounds. It’s becoming a tradition of sorts to have some of the genre’s heavy hitters come through Los Angeles soon after New Year’s parties are wrapped up. Perfect timing for this triple threat featuring crossover favorite Wilkinson and his crowd-friendly jams; Calyx & TeeBee with their curated selections that go from melodic vocals to bassbin-splitting bombs; and Loadstar, who brings the best of the dark sounds. Experiencing this monster event at the Exchange brings both the glitz and the grime — the venue’s state-of-the-art sound system and professional setup for the former and its spacious, cavernous, festival-like interior for the latter. Pro tip: Please wear some type of ear protection; your future self will thank you.
