Sunday, June 3, 2012 DUB MISSION presents the best in dub, dubstep, roots & dancehall with DJ SEP, MANEESH the TWISTER (Surya Dub) and special guest dj THE BUMPS (Club Popozuda/London/UK) at Elbo Room - 647 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA 94110 - Club is 21+ - Club info: 415 552 7788 9 pm to 2 am - $6 www.dubmission.com We’re very proud to present the Dub Mission debut of The Bumps (aka Sean Casey), a DJ and producer from London, who specializes in Baile Funk, Moombahton, and all the forms of Global Bass. For his DUB MISSION date, he has a special set planned featuring UK bass, Barefoot, Dancehall, dub gems, and even a bit of Rocksteady. Not to be missed! The multi-talented Bumps is head of Club Popozuda Recordings, founder of The Global Underground Network, a group of about 350 like-minded producers, DJs and bloggers from across the globe--blogger at Global Ghetto and resident DJ and promoter of Club Popozuda and Fiyahpowa in London. He has many productions to his name, including Baby Bumps (Azuli, Ministry Of Sound, Sony BMG), Ultraboogie (XL, Epic) and his first project, and Chocolate Fudge (Azuli). It was whilst doing gigs around Europe as Baby Bumps back in 2000 that he first encountered a strange style of music that was a mash of Miami Bass, with MCs yelling in Portuguese. He later found out that this was "Funk Carioca" or "Baile Funk" to you. Bumps has been hooked ever since. Now deeply ensconced in the Global Bass world, he has tunes coming out with MC Zulu (Chicago), Feral Is Kinky (UK), MC Gi (Brazil), Comrade da Xao (USA), MC Gringo, and MC Gus (Brazil), and is about to work with Paris' Big Dope P. After gigs in San Francisco, Chicago , Bumps heads to Europe to play at a Brazil Festival in Toulouse, and London's Lovebox festival in Victoria Park. www.facebook.com/iamthebumps http://soundcloud.com/bumps http://theworldisaglobalghetto.blogspot.com/
two nights at the Swamp with Familia del Fuego fire troop, Quarter Monkey and The Bumps
Let's do it!
"There is a curious space in B-movie culture that The Bumps inhabit, and loosely speaking it’s in the same territory as Quentin Tarantino’s “Death Proof”. This EP springs a million bubblegum pop culture references to mind, from Scooby Doo to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre – all compressed into a slab of plastic vinyl boogie. Not many bands could write songs like “Heroin Girl” (“I don’t wanna live with a heroin girl”) while provoking both smirks of amusement and foot tappings. Meanwhile, “I’m A Creepy Guy” is the Ed Wood of pop songs, mixing up surf pop, crap UFO noises and T.Rex guitar solos. Groovesome". *****
