Sub Foundation

This Saturday, August 19th, Voltage Music presents Sub Foundation at BOCA.

Formed by DJ Tomas and XLR8R Magazine's Andrew Smith in 2001, Voltage Music, whose motto is "dub for the dancefloor," presents a night of dub bass submerged and resurfaced.

Sub Foundation will feature the latest in dubstep–a sound that's sweeping clubs in Europe and the US with huge tracks like Skream's "Request Line".

DJ Jamin Creed from local grime crew B.I.G. opens the night with her own wicked mix of ragga-influenced grime and dubstep. (Also catch her Friday Aug 18th at Anu, when BIG presents New York's Dave Q).

Umoja Soundsystem's DJ Tomas will weave together original and digital dub, dubstep and roots reggae. Heavy bass and roots vocal are on the menu–have your lighter ready!

Headlining DJ Kid Kameleon (just back from a 2 month European tour) will drop his unique blend of dub/reggae mashed up breaks. Trust me, after eight weeks on the road, this man will have nuff new tune fi bus'.

Saturday's line up includes local bhangra-dancehall-dub artist Kush Arora (celebrating the release of his second album "BhangRagga"). Kush is an amazing producer who rolls deep with guest emcees. He'll present a special live set of dancehall and dubstep influenced beats.

Emcee Child, returning from several months back home in London, will handle mic duties–

If you like your bass deep, mysterious and danceable, hop in the sub and get low with us.

Sub Foundation at BOCA, 414 Jessie Street at Fifth, downtown San Francisco.
