July 23 thru July 29, 2012

Posted by Dark Matter on July 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

We thought it would be fitting to transmit all the upcoming shows (that we like) so you have a better idea of where the party will be, besides in my pants. Most of the events we're mentioning are thrown in the Mid-Atlantic region and host EDM music of some type.

If you know about a dope event on the horizon send me the link at transmit@darkmattersquad.com and we will check it out. Doesn't matter if its here or there, as long as it's somewhere.

Sorry we are a little late this week. We may or may not have had too Epic of an Adventure on Saturday.

E-Villa & Petrol are proud to bring you an night of Dubstep of which the likes have never been seen in Baltimore. We are lucky enough to bring you one of the pioneers and undisputed Dons of Dubstep. In addition we're bringing through some of the finest local selectors from the DMV & have MC Twisty blessing the mic.


Digital Mystikz/DMZ/Deep Medi)-Croydon, UK

Digital Mystikz are a dubstep production duo (consisting of Mala and Coki – when the two started making music together as teenagers they were known as Malibu and Coke) from the South London suburb of Norwood. Along with Loefah and Sgt. Pokes, they operate the DMZ record label and host the influential bimonthly nightclub DMZ, held at the Mass club complex in Brixton, London. BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, was an early supporter of Digital Mystikz, eventually putting them in his annual 2004 Top 50 list at #29. They are among the scene's most famous producers. Their song "Anti War Dub" appeared in the 2006 film "Children of Men".


DMZ has been described as one of dubstep's two "most influential regular clubnight" (with its predecessor FWD>> the other one) and "central to the scene." Since starting in March 2005, the club's attendance has increased steadily. DMZ's first anniversary, when a queue of 600 people forced the club to move from its regular 400-capacity space to Mass' main room, has been cited as a pivotal moment in dubstep's history. BBC Radio 1 DJ Mary Anne Hobbs, whose support of dubstep has increased the music's popularity, discovered it at DMZ. </ref> fliers carry the slogan "come meditate on bass weight." In 2005, an assortment of songs were created specifically to be played on the club's soundsystem.
