BASSMENT SATURDAYS w/ JANTSEN
BASSment Saturdays is New York City’s biggest weekly dubstep party. Founded in June 2011, the party has attracted bass heads from all around the tri-state area since its inception. With talent ranging from underground heroes to DMC champions and world-renowned bass music legends, the lineup is always interesting and always has something new to offer.
BASSment Saturdays takes place on the basement floor at the world-famous Webster Hall in ‘The Studio,’ which has an underground and intimate vibe without sacrificing any production quality. The bass shakes the room and a hypnotizing light and laser show captivates the crowd all night long. There is a bar and a tattoo shop in the room, so you can get inked while listening to dubstep and drinking a beer.
The party’s resident DJ, Subset, has been with the party since September 2011 and has continued to impress party-goers with his mixing skills, on-stage energy, and brand new (often unreleased) tracks. With Subset involved, the crowd always knows that they will be hearing the best and latest music. BASSment Saturdays is a one-of-a-kind experience that you can’t get at most parties in New York City — great venue, amazing sound, incredible music, and diehard music fans.
