In 2014, Night Bass‘ big cheese AC Slater had an epiphany—expose North Americans to proper bass music (e.g., UK garage, bassline, grime, house) in all its glory. Tomorrow, AC Slater’s Aaron Clevenger and React Presents will throw the first-ever Night Bass City event to Lakefront Green at Theater on the Lake in Lincoln Park, Chicago.
Night Bass City’s roll call is one for the history books: Chris Lorenzo b2b Wax Motif, Redlight b2b Taiki Nulight, Jack Beats b2b Sage Armstrong, Sinden b2b Kendoll plus Petey Clicks b2b Tombz. Plus, the party continues at Sound-Bar with AC Slater and a hush-hush lineup.
“Night Bass City is an idea I’ve had for a few years. Our events have always been like a little community of people that are into our specific blend of music,” Clevenger told Complex. “Kids would come up to me and say, ‘This is my best friend. I met him at Night Bass.’ Over the years, it felt like such a strong community that I thought it would be cool to have a big gathering where everyone could come together, link up and celebrate the music.”
