Constantly evolving, spawning new sub-genres, and reaching into uncharted depths of the frequency range; bass music has been ingrained in the Seattle scene for well over two decades. Join us every Wednesday as we fuse the sounds of Dubstep, Drum and Bass, Trap, Moombahton, Glitch Hop, Drumstep, and everything in between to write the next chapter in this region’s bass music saga. No frills, no fluff, just industry champions and dedicated locals pushing our sound system to its limits every week. This is SUBstance.
About MAS SOL:
Mas Sol began as an annual outdoor festival in Onalaska, WA, with headliners such as Manic Focus, Stylust Beats, TYR, and many more. Eventually, the focus shifted towards producing more indoor events and providing a consistent avenue for alternative bass music sounds to thrive within Western Washington's current club scene. Mas Sol represents the future of bass music, one that provides for the needs of its entire community by featuring headlining artists such as G Jones, Gladkill, Thriftworks, Vibesquad, etc. as well as local favorites, art installations, and hand-picked vendors. Join us for SUBstance Wednesdays on June 11th, as we celebrate the efforts of and showcase the artists who make up Mas Sol.
