Trouble & Bass label leader gets his Rocakabilly on

New York’s bass-worshiping DJ crew/label Trouble & Bass founder Drop the Lime (aka Luca Venezia) is elevating his DJing to the next level by incorporating a live band aspect to his performance. The result mixes his Heavy Bass sound with a prominent Rockabilly influence to embrace the more rock side of his persona, including Venezia playing stand-up bass on stage. The full live show debuted in New York last week and will be coming to Los Angeles tomorrow (May 17) for Franki Chan’s Tuesday night throwdown Check Your Ponytail!2 at Echoplex. To promote the party, and let people in on his new sound, Drop the Lime has put together this Check Your Ponytail!2 Rockabilly mixtape for y’all to peep. Last week it was Andrew W.K. Sharing his secret party tips, and this week it’s Drop the Lime playing stand-up bass — well done, Franki. Classixx, MNDR and Bosco Delr Rey (who we interviewed HERE) will be performing as well. Pick up pres-sale tix for $15.
