Vaski w/Marley Carroll + Lucidea @ New Mountain May 21

  • Backstage Sass

    Self-taught groupie-journalist. Wine drinker. Pottymouth. She actually kind of likes when people chew loudly and has far too many posters in her room for an adult. You can find her on the dance...

Summer is coming. Dubstep is in the air.

It’s okay, I get a little freaked at that word too, but Vaski is a refreshing voice in the ever-evolving (or mutating) genre. With careful craftsmanship and a sonic sensitivity that ranges from chilled, melodic electro (“Weightless”) to high-energy party bass ("Where You Wanna Go"), it’s no surprise the 25-year-old Minneapolis native has been crushing the global electronic stage since he was a teenager.

Raised on his father’s love for ‘90s house and trance, Vaski grew into his own when he discovered drum-and-bass and the hard breaks of Prodigy. It was the early days of dubstep that swept him away to new horizons, a beautiful, nasty whirlwind he’s been bringing to excitable clubbers ever since. And heads up, lover of cute boys: he’s a cute boy!

Atlanta-based jamtronica duo Lucidea and Asheville’s own Marley Carroll kick the night off. And y’all know how much I adore seeing Marley, who after months of studio work is currently out spinning a smattering of new material. Oh hell yes.
