If you came to our launch night last October as part of Tremor Soundsystem’s massive 4th Birthday, or our sold out NYE event at The Crofter’s Rights, you’ll know we know how to throw a good party! Expect top quality sound and lights, merchandise giveaways and guaranteed vibes across 2 rooms till 4am.


Another reason for celebrations is the debut release from our latest addition- Precision, with two hard hitting dancefloor tracks; Underground and D.O.S on the flip featuring the vocals of MC Jolla. Precision is making real waves right now, having already had a string of releases on Limitless Recordings, Syndrome Audio and Nurtured Beats, his latest ‘Instability’ EP receiving glowing reviews from DNB DOJO. He also has the DJ skills to match, his DnB set in the main room is definitely not one to miss!

For all the Hip-Hop heads, Precision will also be opening the second room with MC Jolla on the mic. The pair will be showcasing their ‘Rum Cadava EP’ to kick the night off in style.

Rounding off a busy summer which included multiple sets at Boomtown and headlining the Village stage at Fieldview festival, Exposure is ready to blow the roof off Basement 45. His debut release ‘Delicate Lives’ feat Sula Mae / Sacrifice dropped in July and has gained lots of recognition, the B-Side ‘Sacrifice’ being picked up by Neurofunk grid . On a deck setup consisting of 3 turntables and 2 CDJs, his style of mixing is super fast and always full of surprises. He seamlessly blends between tracks, covering the whole spectrum of Drum and Bass. With Carasel back on mic duties, this is arguably one of the best DJ / MC combos on the circuit.

Formerly known as ‘Despicable Youth’, Ill Truth are 2 of Bristol’s busiest Drum and Bass DJs and for good reasons. Their debut release under the new alias ‘Hivemind’ has just come out on Lifestyle Music with critical acclaim, having been reposted on the hugely popular Skankandbass channel. Their productions are going from strength to strength and with a string of releases lined up for top shelf labels including A R in the near future, this duo is one to watch out for.

Having DJ’d at our launch night at Coroner’s Court last year and having been Tremor Soundsystem’s resident, we are happy to welcome back Stitch to play the last set of the night in the main room. Known for his sick abilities on the decks, his tune selection is what you want for the last hour, hard, heavy and down right dirty. Relentless double drops and super tight mixes don’t give you any chance of leaving till the lights come on.
