For Bubblin XXI we welcome distinguished and esteemed PDX selectors Dave Quam, Roane, Jusayn, and Dhug into the mix.

Dave Quam is a writer, photographer, producer, and DJ whose work has appeared in XLR8R, The Wire, DJ Magazine, and Shook to name a few. His blog, It’s After the End of the World, is one of the seminal portals into the kaleidoscopic regional/global bass sounds of yesterday and today. He’s recently relocated back to his hometown of Portland from Chicago, where he extensively documented and participated in the Windy City’s vibrant Juke/Footwork scene – the latest sounds out of Chicago that are currently reverberating on dancefloors round the world. His crates are as deep and varied as any to be found in the global bass continuum. We’re stoked to have him come though and light up the Bubblin set!

Roane and Jusayn both rep Portland’s eclectic, freewheeling collective Grand Cooley with commendable aplomb. After witnessing their excellent and rousing B2B set at a wild house party late this past summer, they went onto our short list of locals to put on. Vinyl purists both, their crates are stocked with irreproachable house and boogie tracks plus a shockingly deep selection of super choice freestyle cuts. Trust these fellows are gonna nice up the dance properly!

Dhug, of the madcap Chickenhed crew, first heard Moombahton at Dave Nada’s rowdy December 2010 PDX debut at Bubblin and was fully smitten by the sound. A year later, we’re pumped to have him coming through to lace us with a smoothed out moombah set to get Bubblin XXI started.

We at Bubblin are fully stoked out to announce our first dance party at our new home, Rotture! We’ve loved our time at Crown Room with its massive sound and awesome staff, but are thrilled to be hopping across the Willamette to Rotture’s friendly and spacious Inner Eastside confines.

For the occasion we’ve enlisted two of the finest dancefloor fillers around: Brookyln via Miami bass bomber extraordinaire JUBILEE and Pacific Northwest juke/bass sensation CEDAA! We’ve had Jubilee on our radar to bring out since first commencing Bubblin and are honored to now host her PDX debut. She brings impeccable selections, air tight phrased up mixes, and tru skool rave love to her vibrant dj sets – get ready to work it out PDX. Pac NW upstart Cedaa made his PDX debut at the Bubblin 1 Yr in April, when he was still too young to order a drink in the club! Now, having just turned 21 in late August, he’s back to set things off in his fresh and unique style.

Check dope mixes, tracks, and remixes from each of them:

Re: JUBILEE
Though now splitting her time between Miami and Brooklyn, XLR8R’s “artist to watch” Jubilee will always be Brooklyn’s bass sweetheart. Known for her rambunctious combination of upfront bass music, UK house, and tropical flavors, she has become a surefire remedy for ailing dancefloors around the globe.

Co-opting her name from the X-Men character who shot fireworks out of her hands, Jubilee works similar magic when she steps into the DJ booth. But she’s also simply Jess, the one-time South Florida raver who grew up obsessively listening to Miami bass on the radio and dancing the night away at underground breaks parties. After making the move to NYC, she quickly infiltrated the DJ circuit and began turning heads with her knowledge of all things bass.

It’s the sweet mix of underground bass and tropical vibes that brings Jubilee from clubs and warehouse parties to the comfort of your own home. Her radio show Fireworks, on both Brooklyn Radio and Electric Soundstage (iHeartRadio’s new electronic station), continuously features fellow global producers such as Sinden, Bok Bok, Mike Q, and Star Eyes. Prior to Fireworks, she has DJed on East Village Radio and put together well received guest mixes for “The Mix Up” on Australia’s Triple J Radio and XLR8R Magazine’s esteemed podcast series.

You can also find Jubilee on the production end of things as one half of Bassanovva, a project with Canadian producer Grahmzilla (previously of Thunderheist). The duo’s debut EP, Chicken Lover, dropped this past November on Sinden’s Grizzly label. Be sure to also check out her Paypur EP with Udachi for the Nightshifters label, an imprint she runs with Jason Forrest (a.k.a. Dj Donna Summer). These days we have also seen official Jubilee remixes for some of the most buzzed about artists- Cubic Zirconia (with Proper Villians), Canblaster, and Creep (with Star Eyes).

As if that’s not enough, Jubilee also puts on the infamous Flashing Lights party (with Nick Catchdubs and DJ Ayres); named Best New Party at the Paper Magazine 2010 Nightlife Awards. Critical recognition is no stranger to Jess- in 2009, Sasha Frere-Jones invited her to perform at the New Yorker Festival—she was the only DJ on the bill. Jubilee regularly DJs throughout the US and Europe, and you will be sure to see a lot more of her bass-loaded fireworks on both sides of the Atlantic.

Re: Cedaa
This Pacific NW Juke/Bass wunderkind is one of a handful of producers in North America making waves in both the Chicago Juke and UK Bass scenes. Young Cedaa just celebrated his 21st birthday at the end of August down in SF opening up for Addison Groove at the renowned monthly ICEE HOT. Here’s what noted bass connoisseur Dave Quam had to say about our guy:
“Cedaa has been brought to the attention of some due to support from Girl Unit, Canblaster, Blackdown, and other European DJs with a knack for digging through Soundcloud. Under two decades old, this Washington-based producer can’t even get into the club yet, and you can tell by his tracks that his aim isn’t just to make people dress up and go out…. A Chicago sound palette plays an obvious role in the creation of this music, but I’ve yet to find another “outsider” American make a better nod towards the Windy City, while simultaneously coming up with something as fresh as this. It’s Bellingham Bounce from here on out, and Cedaa is the reigning (raining?) ruler of the top-left coast.”

KABOOOOM!

Re: Bubblin
Founded by residents Lincolnup and Ben Tactic, Bubblin puts on dance parties in Portland, OR. The two veteran DJs met in late 2009 at a Gant Man show and bonded over their shared love of music emerging from the funky – house – garage – tropical – postdubstep continuum. From there they decided to establish Bubblin, becoming the Pacific Northwest’s first advocates devoted to these forward thinking sounds. Since then Bubblin has consistentlyfeatured debut Pacific Northwest performances by ahead of the curve artists, such as Roska, Ghosts on Tape, Zed Bias aka Maddslinky, Dubbel Dutch, Distal, Kyle Hall, Nguzunguzu, LOL Boys, Dave Nada, Ramadanman aka Pearson Sound, Dre Skull, and Jimmy Edgar. Bubblin is dedicated to bringing up to the time and timeless dance music to the good people of Portland, OR and beyond.

Re: Noah D
Noah D is without doubt one of the top Dubstep producers hailing from the USA. He has been building his reputation in both the Dubstep and Drum n Bass circles since 2003 and is highly regarded on both sides of the Atlantic for his musical output. His tune, "Seeeriousss" has torn up every dancefloor on every corner of the world and became a full fledged Dubstep anthem in 2009 and is still being rinsed on most dancefloors. His music has received consistent radio play on many of the UK's biggest radio stations including RinseFM, Kiss, BBC's radio1 and 1xtra and has been supported worldwide by DJ's from different areas of the electronic music such as Skream, N-Type, Plastician, DJ Hype, Dieselboy, Bassnectar, Glitch Mob, Gaslamp Killer and Freq Nasty just to name a few!

BUBBLIN JUNE : LOW LIMIT

FRIDAY JUNE 10 2011
BUBBLIN AND ABSTRACT EARTH PROJECT PRESENT

LOW LIMIT (DJ SET)

LA – LAZER SWORD/NUMBERS

Best known as one half of the mighty LAZER SWORD duo alongside Lando Kal, Low Limit is coming thru to lace PDX with a very rare DJ Set inna Bubblin style! Perhaps lesser known is that when LL was residing in SF, in addition to handling things in Lazer Sword, he also was a founding resident DJ of the widely acclaimed monthly club night ICEE HOT with fellow badmen Ghosts On Tape, Shawn Reynaldo, and Rollie Fingers. Along with Bubblin in PDX and Turrbotax in NY, Icee Hot was one of the very first Stateside parties to feature mutant strands of UK Garage, UK Funky, House, Tropical Bass, and Post Dubstep that are only now emerging into the fore of EDM in the US. Low Limit has been riding for these sounds from the ground floor in North America and we are fully stoked out to have him grace the decks at Bubblin, as you should be. Especially cause we’re doin the dang thang for $5.

DRE SKULL BIO:

Dre Skull is a Brooklyn-based producer and DJ whose boundary-pushing conceptual attitude towards music and culture has been receiving critical acclaim since 2007. His worldwide tours and collaborations with artists as far reaching as Sizzla, Lil Scrappy, Sissy Nobby and Vybz Kartel have established him as an ambassador of culture and a producer with a pop touch.

In 2009, Dre Skull founded Mixpak Records as an outpost for both his own productions and the work of other respected artists and producers from a variety of different scenes and cultures. Mixpak's growing roster represents Dre Skull's singular vision that connects dancehall and southern rap legends with unknown teenage techno producers and female rock bands.

Dre Skull's background in the academic/underground art scene gives his aesthetic a fresh scope that distances him from his contemporaries. More a descendant of Steely Dan's brainy conceptualism than that of a traditional DJ, his outsider status allows him to take risks and establish new dynamics, combining high conceptualism with pop accessibility. These dynamics run through both his own productions and the releases on Mixpak.

Dre Skull has been featured by magazines such as XLR8R, Clark, Fader, Tsugi, and Vanity Fair, produced singles that received strong radio support in Trinidad and charted in Jamaica and received strong support from artists like Annie Mac, Sinden, Switch, Drop the Lime, Diplo, Stretch Armstrong and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard. He continues to hone his craft and up the ante, with frequent recent trips to Kingston, Jamaica where he has been producing an upcoming Vybz Kartel full length, set for release in early 2011. In the meantime, he is putting the finishing touches on a collaborative single with Dutch house-master Oliver Twizt, which is set to drop later this fall. Dre Skull's future as a musical and cultural innovator seems limitless.
