About the Event

Toasted returns for our next heavyweight Soundsystem Session.

Of course we will be bringing out the Toasted Soundsystem, one of Bristol's freshest and most exciting new sound systems. This time it is Basement 45's infamous tunnels getting Toasted™.

We have pulled out all the stops for this.

Our headliner for this session will be none other than SUBMOTIVE.

SUBMOTIVE (James Davidson) is a Drum & Bass DJ, producer & engineer from Bournemouth on the UK’s south coast. Previously one half of the recently separated duo “Ulterior Motive” and co-founder of the Guidance record label, James is also Goldie’s engineer and production partner in new downtempo project “Subjective”. Over the last 10 years he has carved out a well respected reputation for futuristic, high production beats with plenty of funk and soul for a large number of top record labels touring the world with high energy DJ sets in the process. This new chapter sees James ramping up rather than slowing down, pushing forward with an impressive lineup of forthcoming releases over the next 12 months including solo releases and collaborations with the scenes best producers and labels.

Next, we have the fearsome upcoming duo and one of Dispatch Recordings top talents, GENIC.

GENIC have quickly been making a name for themselves and are fast rising through the ever critical ranks of the Drum & Bass world. Coming off the back of their debut album on Dispatch Recordings as well as their debut at the prestigious festival Outlook among other international shows, they are coming to grace the decks at Toasted yet again, as long time friends of Toasted it only made sense. Expect nothing less than a tear out, high intensity display of premium, rolling Drum & Bass.

The Toasted Soundsystem operator and original vibe instigator SAM AVANTÍ will be stepping up to deliver some sound system pressure and spin his dubplates to show you exactly what the Sound of the Toast is all about. He has been perfecting his sound and honing his craft for nearly a decade, and for the past few years has been working on and fine-tuning the Toasted Soundsystem, all of this culminates on Saturday the 13th of May at Basement 45 for a no holds barred sound system session.

And on top of all this we have a carefully curated handpicked selection of some of the UK's finest underground selectas' across two rooms providing you with only the finest cuts.

We will also be doing a mix competition exclusively for producers, in the hope of giving one deserving soundboi or soundgirl the opportunity to spin some of their own dubplates out of the Toasted Soundsystem, the ultimate sound check.


// TOASTED SOUNDSYSTEM LIVE // - A no holds barred dub for dub battle of the ages between the Toasted crew, we take no prisoners.


Saturday the 13th of May 22:00 - 04:00 Basement 45 £5, £7 & £9 M.O.T.D 18+
