Canadian-duo Datsik and Bais Haus have spent the final two years as Ephwurd basically coining the time period ‘bass home’. With a number of excursions, charting releases, and a powerful setlist of remixes below their belt, it’s no marvel Ephwurd have been booked at plenty of 2017’s greatest festivals. Whereas not a dubstep mission by nature, Ephwurd have discovered themselves gracing a few of dubstep’s greatest levels; upcoming exhibits at International Dance Pageant and Misplaced Lands (whose lineup looks like someone assembled the Bass Music All-Stars) have them sharing the decks with the likes of Funtcase and Excision. Ephwurd is basically embraced by a headbanging crowd, and listening to any of their units or Eph’d up radio mixes shortly reveals why.
Global Dance Festival is developing this weekend, with Ephwurd slated to carry out on the International Summit Stage on Friday. We talked the change in venue, dream collabs, and the importance of International Dance Pageant within the bass music neighborhood.
Everyone knows the place Crimson Rocks and GDF holds within the hearts of the Bass neighborhood. Do you imagine an analogous vibe and degree of manufacturing will be achieved at Mile Excessive?
I feel Crimson Rocks is its personal beast and you may by no means recreate the expertise of being there. With that stated, Mile Excessive has a lot more room and might be an awesome venue to host a lot extra manufacturing and levels which might accommodate all kinds of artists and vibes.
For a pageant this appears to make extra sense trigger now you’ll be able to see a number of levels the place Crimson Rocks is de facto only a one stage venue….. The aspect levels there by no means actually acquired as a lot love as they deserved.
International Dance Pageant caters to what’s thought-about the bass capital of the world in Colorado. Is there something completely different that goes into making ready for this set?
Ensuring we carry the bass! We at all times do this however with right here it will be important that we emphasize that.
Ephwurd completely killed the remix recreation in 2016. Which up-and-coming bass artist would you be most taken with transforming?
That’s a troublesome query, I feel for us remixes come right down to having a strong vocal. Remixing a dope bass tune is tough as a result of the entire level is to attempt to make it one thing tremendous completely different in comparison with the unique. If one thing catches our ear in poor health let ya know tho
The primary ever Misplaced Lands is true across the nook! Can we count on a brand new Eph’d Up Radio combine to rejoice the event?
Oh you understand it! Will in all probability characteristic tunes from all of the artists taking part in there!
Do you guys have a dream collab for Ephwurd?
We’d love to begin working with extra dope vocalists. Getting within the studio with somebody soulful like James Blake and even somebody enjoyable like D.R.A.M could be sick. We aren’t too choosy so long as it sounds good and captures a vibe.
