Local bass soldiers host two rising minimal-dubstep superstars. Scuba made waves with last year’s A Mutual Antipathy; don’t be surprised to hear some of his Berlin neighbor’s house and techno amid his industrialized, electrified dub. Appleblim’s recent Rinse FM online mixes have bumped Dizzy Gillespie alongside Grace Jones, but tonight should hone closer to the Bristol native’s Dubstep All Stars mix CD. The Villalobos-approved music he and Shackleton put out on Skull Disco—and that Appleblim’s releasing on his own label, Apple Pips—are musts for electronica fans. With residents Joe Nice, Dave Q, Juakali and Incyde.
