BASSFoundation is a crew originally formed in New Delhi, playing and promoting drum & bass, dubstep and reggae-dancehall in India and abroad. The collective consists of deejays Big Daddy Klein and Praxis, with Delhi Sultanate on the mic.
Formed back in early 2009, BASSFoundation were one of the first crews to promote drum & bass and dubstep in India, and the first ever regular night to hit New Delhi. Almost four years on and the scene is thriving, with a range of home-grown producers and DJs, and underground and established names from all over the world regularly touring the country.
BASSFoundations combination of the traditional reggae sound system format with newer electronic genres has drawn a large, dedicated following at their own jam-packed monthly nights in Delhi, as well as numerous gigs across the country and further afield.
Musically they rep a broad spectrum of drum & bass, from melodic soulful flavours and reggae-tinged sounds to deeper rollers, as well as mixing things up with jungle, dubstep and dancehall. BASSFoundations ever-growing box of dubplates features specials by leading recording artists from Jamaica and the rest of the world. Delhi Sultanate with his background as a dancehall MC provides unique and uncompromising, politically-conscious lyrics, reflecting the fiercely non-commercialist ethos of the crew. They have played to capacity crowds at almost all of the major venues in India, as well as being regulars at the Sunburn, Holi Cow and NH7 festivals.
has seen BASSFoundation expand operations overseas, with their East London night at Bar-A-Bar cementing their reputation in the Big Smoke. After kicking off in December 2012 with the Serial Killaz as headliners, it has seen the likes of DJ Flight, David Boomah, and Hylu & Jago (Unit 137) pass through, and with the mighty Marcus Visionary guest for their Outlook warm-up party.
Invited back to Outlook – Europe’s leading bass music and soundsystem culture festival – after their debut in 2012, this year BASSFoundation will feature also on the line-up of the inaugural ‘India at Outlook’ boat party, hosted by KRUNK. This will be immediately followed by an India Tour in September, taking in Delhi, Bangalore, Pune & Mumbai
