Disclaimer: Heavy Dubstep only. No crappy trap remixes, no clarity, and no levels were dropped this past Friday night as Eptic crashed New York’s newest venue, The Wall. This 19 year old from Belgium topped Beatport charts for 7 weeks straight with his “Like A Boss” EP and is now signed to Never Say Die Records with much more in store for us.
As we arrived, Mischeif was setting the tone for what the rest of the night would hold with his smooth bass and heavy drops. Subset soon took the decks and, let me tell you, this guy gets it. 😉 As a resident of the historic Webster Hall, I’m sure you’ve caught him tearing it up at BASSment Saturdays. Well, he carried that energy with him and opened up beautifully for the main act. With a smooth transition between sets, and to my surprise, Eptic started spinning right on time. The tracks he dropped included Knife Party “Rage Valley,” Destroid “Bounce,” Flux Pavilion “One Two Three (Make Your Body Wanna)” and “Hold Me Close,” (okay stop, you know how much I love Flux) Doctor P “Champagne Bop” (and this song had me going nuts all summer long), and my personal favorite of his “Like A Boss” (alright, I’m in love).
Honestly, I was waiting for some trap or house beats to blast through the speakers but this kid kept it consistent with the face melting drops that had the whole crowd raging for hours. It wasn’t a terribly huge crowd but that’s good because the venue is rather small and we knew that everyone there was a true Basshead. By the end of the night Subset was MCing on top of Sinder’s shoulders and all was right with the world. Check out the full photo album here.
