Play Me Bass Monster Tour: Episode 1

By Sean Lewis

Last month, we brought you news of the upcoming tour from one of dubstep’s biggest labels, Play Me Records. A tour so monstrous, owner and producer Reid Speed named it the Bass Monster Tour.

Our first installment from Reid’s tour diary comes to us after her first leg of the tour touched down at Detroit’s White Star Nightclub. Read on to hear how mad it got, and don’t miss Reid Speed and FS’ new monster of a single, “Bass Monster,” for the Play Me sublabel Play Me Too.

Reid Speed:

“On Saturday, June 25, the Play Me Bass Monster Tour hit Detroit for a rowdy evening of action. FS & Cyberoptics got in early and had a lovely time hanging out. I had flight delays and by the time I got in, the boys had already gone to the club. I decided to stop by Happy’s Pizza, which was encased in bulletproof glass and perhaps the unhappiest pizza joint ever!

When I got to the party, there was some really good energy. Cyberoptics was playing some thrash metal and then some drumstep. FS went on next and captivated the audience with his turntablist trickery and his own remixes of popular songs like “99 Problems” and “Massive Attack.” I went on last and kept the energy so high that the cops showed up and shut the party down 10 minutes before I finished. TOO HOT FOR DETROIT!  After that, we ‘monstered’ over to White Castle where we sat for an hour blazing up the drive-thru waiting for Cyberoptics to finish his nine (NINE!!!!!!!) hamburgers. What a way to close it out!”
