Bass heavy and next level grooves are in session when the powerhouse trio of ill.Gates, Stephan Jacobs and Jay Fay hit up the Blind Pig on Dec. 2nd for the Church of Bass Tour where you can expect some of the deepest and hardest sounds to be delivered this year.
Ill.Gates is a highly skilled heavy bass veteran and certifiable superstar. The Toronto-born and San Francisco-based producer recently the crowds at Burning Man, and with a fresh release coming from Muti Music, and the free release of his ENTIRE back catalog forthcoming, only legendary levels of success appear to be in his bright future. With a special 3D projection mapping stage show and PK subs being brought in for sound, ill.Gates' headlining sets promise to be exalted moments in the Church of Bass.
Los Angeles based dance floor troublemaker Stephan Jacobs has his debut album dropping two weeks before kicking on the road, and brings a brilliantly sequenced live show and a desire to take a crowd on what he terms "a musical journey." A steady stream of remixes, including popular and powerful takes on the work of Benny Benassi and Skrillex, Ellie Goulding, Die Antwoord and an endless plethora more have positioned him as being a rising sensation with a growing fanbase.
Jay Fay isn't old enough to drink on his first national tour dates, but he's talented enough to blow your mind. The ex-drummer came on strong with the mid-tempo global bass moombahton vibes on tracks like "Oops." This has led to the DJ/producer's growing list of early achievements to include being voted as the top DJ in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, as well as having co-signs from the likes of progressive electro banger crafters of the moment Diplo, Dillon Francis and Tittsworth. Equally as gifted in slowing down as he is speeding up the bass, he brings a unique vibe and exciting new sounds to the Church of Bass Tour.
