Add to Calendar 07-02-2012 07-02-2012 15 Helicopter Showdown The four-person Bay Area production force known as Helicopter Showdown has earned the reputation in the underground bass music culture as the "Wu Tang" of dubstep. These West Coast bass monsters have been turning heads and crashing parties worldwide with their unique blend of heavy dubstep and melodic electro house. Having dominated the Bay Area bass music scene over the past year, Helicopter Showdown has been called out of its homeland to perform and curate events all over North America in cities such as Detroit, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Denver, Houston, and Montreal. Supported by such highly respected artists as Rusko, Borgore, Mt. Eden, Calvertron, Skism, Downlink, and Reid Speed, among others, this group and its music are quickly being recognized everywhere, from the most distinguished UK dubstep pioneers to the smaller pockets of bassheads in the US. In the last year, after teaming up with close friend, collaborator, and UltraGore label mate and owner Sluggo, the Helicopter Showdown crew smashed its way onto the Beatport charts with the debut release "The Wrestler," followed by "Hostages" and most recently "Holy Ghost" featuring MC Messinian. Recently, Helicopter Showdown has become even more of a household name in the Beatport dubstep charts, planting itself firmly within the Top 20 with its latest release "Drop It Again" with Calvertron, off the Flight or Fight EP (2011). The band is currently finishing up its next Ultragore EP with Sluggo featuring the fresh vocal talents of Bryan Dallas and Young Aunde. In addition, a laundry list of collaborations is in store that will make 2012 a marquee year for this groundbreaking crew. Helicopter Showdown also stands out from the rest of the bass community due in part to its reputation for holding fans in the highest regard, proving its love through consistent efforts to give away free music. Highly acclaimed releases include "Gucci Gucci (Helicopter Showdown & IB Remix)," "Waiting" with BoyKidCloud, "Dramatron," "Beat Down," and the classic "Whistle Tips" with Point.blank, all given gratis to the band's hungry fans. This group even takes it one step further, giving away free downloads of its signature sounds and production templates. With its dedication to production, its fans, and its ability to take its four-person team onto the stage and turn any given party into a full-blown event, Helicopter Showdown is bringing the party from West Coast underground to the Highline Ballroom tonight. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=102673 Highline Ballroom true DD/MM/YYYY
