Our first Village Session of 2013 comes to you from one of Calgary’s bass music heavyweights, DJ Slim Pickins. For this hour long set Slim dug deep in his crates to take the dance floor and listeners on a journey into dnb, ragga and his own big bass flavours.
As co-founder and CEO of The Supreme Hustle, Western Canada’s leading Bass Music promotion company, as well as Supreme Hustle Recordings, Slim continues to push the Bass music movement forward. Since 2000, DJ Slim Pickins has played and promoted drum’n’bass and dubstep throughout Alberta. Amassing a collection of sounds from hip hop, dubstep, drum & bass, he’s now gone further producing bassbin shattering beats that stay true to his B-boy and hip hop roots into a dancefloor friendly format.
For those of us who were there for this set, you’ll remember the air was sizzling with wicked bass frequencies while Slim Pickins was at the controls. He fully flexed the power of the bass bins in the Village and mixed together the perfect amount of dubwise, self produced hip hop flavoured dubstep and d’n’b.
Turn your bass up high and see how DJ Slim Pickins and The Supreme Hustle do it.
Special thanks to PK Sound for bringing the bass and stage; Shambhala Music Festival for hosting the party; Head Effect Mobile Recording who recorded and mastered this set; The Village volunteers for making it magical; and everyone who danced their asses off all weekend long.
