People Don’t Dance No More @ Love, May 22, 2008 (more by David Bruno)
People Dont Dance No More

There’s a lot happening this weekend, especially at Love. Tonight (May 23) the Captain and Mathhead are back for the Take Over. You can always rely on Trouble & Bass to bring their bass-heavy sound to the floor. This special edition of the Takeover features three other crews of monthly Love residents (Sub Swara, Secret Night of Science, and Dub War) each bringing their own influences to the bass that they have in common.

Dub War was featured in an article about dubstep in the New York Times a few months ago. If you’re new to dubstep, Dub War has a podcast you can check out too (@ iTunes).

Keep going for more weekend events…..

If you’re looking for something a bit more electro-oriented, Kristian from the great, Swedish, music blog, Discobelle.net, is deejaying upstairs at Le Royale. Dopplehertz are downstairs. They were also at Studio B last night. Did anybody catch them? All I’ve been able to find out about them is that they are party promoters from Toronto who also deejay.
