This night features:
♆♆♆ TASO (Off Top, Muti, Teklife) ♆♆♆
The OFF TOP EP is a futuristic fusion of Trap and Juke that Taso spend precious hours in the lab conjuring. It is some of the most forward thinking music of our time, at the turning point of emerging new genres. Its got all the signature Taso bits, from tailor made bass laced with banging kicks to smooth hitting hi hats and fine tuned snare rolls, making this album a highly stylized piece.
Taso has made quite a name for himself recently in the Bay Area's Hip Hop & EDM scene. With DJ, mixtape, and blog supports coming from some of the biggest names in the industry, along with chart topping, highly coveted tunes on Beatport, this is definitely an artist to pay very close attention to. His recent releases have been the highlight of some of the best parties on a global level, making his 100%, all original DJ sets incredibly sought after.
There is jazz buried between the crevasses of Taso's music, and his work resounds with a feeling of distinct street beat crossed with the substance of technical virtuosity. His sounds are trunk-busting, slow rhyme inducing, pop-and-lock, deep, West Coast breaks with a hint at elements of Dubstep. In a flash, Taso's use of synths, samples and drums proves as razor sharp as any contender in the big bass alleyway of top ten lists across the EDM globe. You will always find the crowd shouting and singing to Taso's beats at his shows, while he raps on the mic and cuts it up on the 1s and 2s.
In 2012, Taso was asked to join and represent Teklife (Ghetto Teknitianz, founders of Juke and Footwerk) and is the only member representing this notorious crew on the West Coast. Recently, he released an official Cutty Ranks Remix alongside Djunya and is also having a major single coming out on Play Me Records, featuring a remix by NastyNasty. He is currently working on an official remix for Masia One featuring the Rza of Wu-Tang (due to be released on Muti), as well as one for Iamsu and Wiz Khalifa for clubtapes.com & livemixtapes.com. Back when he was more involved in the production of Dubstep, Taso released a full length album, "Galactive Booty Call", in May 2012, which went to #9 in the top 100 albums on the Dubstep Charts for Beatport and #34 on the overall albums as well as #2 on the Glitch Hop top 100's.
Having spent the greater portion of his life crafting a musical identity from his unearthly passion for big bass and brining people together for an insanely good time, Taso never fails to deliver only the most top notch performances. With recent exposures such as a feature on Trap-A-Holics Certified Trap Vol. 2, and plays on Berlin's BLN.FM, this is one boss young gun to be on the lookout for :) http://www.tasomusic.comhttp://www.soundcloud.com/tasohttp://www.facebook.com/officialtaso
