Bass Pass Blog turns 2!

MindSetp meets Dub Lab
We have been sharing best bass events and music with all of you for two years now!
Absolutely happy to see the blog and its channels (Youtube, Facebook, twitter) grow slowly but firmly, and totally organically – we are proud to have bass heads from all over the world checking our photos and videos.

As you might have noticed lately, more focus is laid on social media pages, and less and less on this page. We will still update this page once so often, but will post most our contents regularly on our connected pages, so make sure you follow:
BASS PASS ON YOUTUBE
BASS PASS ON FACEBOOK
BASS PASS ON TWITTER

Much love and respect goes out to our main contributors: photographers Maša Gojić, Polona Kumelj and Aleš Jazbec – they are covering events in Slovenia and Croatia, while ‘we’ is actually really ‘me’ : ) that is Maya, who is responsible for editing and running the blog, and filming, editing and publishing videos from best events in London. Expect some new ones soon, weekend is approaching!

Also, huge respect to all our friends bloggers and promoters, and music crews – out to Dub Lab, Dub Diggerz, Filter, Roots in Session, Riddim Operator, Urbanbuddhamusic, Slovenia Loves Bass, Pozitivan Ritam, Seasplash, Outlook and Dimensions Festivals, Mungo’s Hi Fi, Butterz and all the others as well – it has been pleasure to work with you and push the bass scene and educate the youths.
And biggest shout out to all our followers and supporters!

And now to celebrate our second anniversary, we have teamed up with MindStep Music from London, our partners in crime here in UK. With third partner in crime, Dub Lab, we are organizing MindStep Label night, with no other than label boss Crises flying to Slovenia for a heavy Monday night in Channel Zero! Alongside Crises we have Trashbat arriving on the same plane, and you can expect a bass heavy event full of emotions, Crises and Trashbat are a killing combination trust us! Supporting the event will be our friends Freeverse (Filter) and Rollking (Dub Lab).

Hope to see you in Channel Zero on 28th of April!

OUTLOOK FESTIVAL

Some of our favorite festivals have released the initial line up for 2014 editions. It looks like Outlook Festival is going to offer us a solid line up of big names from all across bass genres – you can expect to see legends Busta Rhymes, Barrington Levi and DJ Premier! In the idyllic Istrian coastal region you can be part of this unique experience of a long weekender, raving on a old fort, and taking the sun on the beach parties and the infamous boat parties.

+ Ms. Lauren Hill will be performing on the opening concert in the magical roman amphitheatre!

The first stage take overs announced:

Our team has spent two weeks in beautiful Croatian environment, where the summer lasts till mid September (at least!). This is a special happening for us and we are looking forward to be part of it every year – it’s our perfect bass holiday.

No long stories this time, we are pleased to show you what we’ve experienced through photos and videos.

Can’t wait till next year editions of both festivals, which every dedicated bass head should join at least once.
