Victoria’s three man dubstep juggernaut is back at it for another round behind the decks.
Back in 2008 DJ Gobe was hosting his radio show VPSS (Vinyl Pusher Sound System). Frame was holding down a residency at The Reef. I (Rhythmicon) was promoting the Vibe clubnight @ Hush. The 3 of us, all sporting ginger hair and and a passion for this new and exciting style emanating from the UK, came together to play as The Big Reds. We were also blessed to be often hosted by the legendary MC Natureboy.
With a large circle of enthusiastic friends and a music community ready for something fresh – we created the Pacific Dubstep banner and hosted a series of Proppa! shows to push the sound. Blessed with support from longtime fam such as Longshanks and April M., The Big Reds were blessed with the opportunity to showcase our unique take on dubstep through avenues such as sub|division, Theory Thursday, Rifflandia, and Ska Fest. From 2008 through 2015, these collaborations helped usher in an undeniable era of 140 beats-per-minute bass weight in Victoria.
Part of what has made playing as The Big Reds so enjoyable is the variety & influences that each of us bring to the table. Join us this Sunday the 30th @ 12PM PST while we dig into our crates to show roots and future of the sound.
