Cox Capitol Theatre and DSEL Promotions are starting the school year off with a bang.
On Thursday, Aug. 25, BASSFACE presents its Back to School Bash featuring Dubstep DJs Heroes + Villains and Mayhem.
DSEL Promotions began in 2010 and soon brought the BASSFACE series to downtown Macon, according to Nick Rizkalla CEO of DSEL Promotions.
Dubstep music had been in the Atlanta underground scene for years and was beginning to leak out into surrounding cities and into the public eye,” Rizkalla said. “The young people and college kids around Macon wanted Dubstep but had no outlet for it, and so DSEL stepped up to the plate and answered their demands.”
Headliners Heroes + Villians kept their identity a secret for some time, creating quite the buzz in the online community. They have recently been revealed, however, as DJs and producers Daniel Disaster and Pete H. Their discography includes official remixes for Roscoe Dash’s ”All the Way Turnt Up” and Waka Flocka’s “Oh Let’s Do It.”
Mayhem is an Atlanta-based DJ, producer, label executive and promoter. He is currently collaborating with Heros + Villains to combine southern rap music with Dubstep.
The show also features Natasha Fox, an Atlanta resident who began moonlighting as a DJ in 2011. Fox works with Atlanta music label Wobble House. DJ Pharmer, AKA Alden Bennett, will make an appearance as well. Bennett is a well-known DJ in Macon and has performed at local events such as Bearstock.
August’s Back to School Bash is an all ages event. The cover is $5 with college ID, and $10 without.
In the upcoming months, DSEL will be bringing other names and shows to Macon, including Wick-It The Instigator on September 29.
