The Big Bass Blowout. w/ Juakali,Joe Nice & Freaky Flow
31-year-old Baltimore Dubstep DJ. The most famous American DJ playing Dubstep, Nice founded New York's irregular Dub War club night, which has hosted performances by prominent British Dubstep artists such as Hatcha, Youngsta ,kode9 , Mala and Loefah . He performs regularly in New York, London (including at scene pillar DMZ) , and elsewhere. He first heard Dubstep in 2002, at the Baltimore venue Starscape, and began playing it that same year. He has been praised for his charisma and stage presence. In 2005 music journalist Martin Clark also praised him for his access to new dubplates (in contrast to other American Dubstep DJs) and willingness to play tracks by lesser-known producers. In 2007, Nice was selected as one of URB magazine's "Next 100".
Freaky Flow plays on a regular basis at major events throughout Canada, the US, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, Austria, England, and Slovenia, making him the most booked drumandbass DJ in Canada. Notably, for years, all of Flow’s sets featured lyrical-mastermind, MC Flipside, on the microphone, but with Flipside’s mid-2004 decision to quit touring with Flow and focus on his own stage show and studio work, Flow now finds himself rocking crowds again all on his own, just like back in the day.
