Bass music brand/label, CruCast, hit new heights in 2019 taking over festival stages at Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, Creamfields, SW4, Boomtown and Amnesia (Ibiza) to name a few. Now the brand has announced an indoor festival taking place at London’s Printworks as part of a four-date UK autumn 2019 tour taking in Newcastle, Nottingham and Birmingham. Printworks, the final part of the tour, takes place on Saturday 23 November.
The line-up for Printworks’ includes Crucast featuring Skepsis, Darkzy, Bru-C, TS7, Window Kid, LazCru and Mr Virgo in the Press Halls, with Problem Central (Logan D, Majistrate, Eksman, Evil B), Watch the Ride featuring Randall b2b DJ Die b2b Dismantle featuring Prime plus a special unannounced guest, Distres Signal (Kanine, K Motionz, Simula), Jungle Cakes Take Over feat. Ed Solo B2B Deekline B2B Benny Page B2B Serial Killaz, hosted by Navigator, Upgrade, DJ Q b2b Jamie Duggan, DJ Guv b2b Hedex Royal T b2b Champion. Completing the venue takeover, The Dark Room at Printworks will feature Darkzy (dubstep set), Taiki Nulight b2b Cause & Affect, Bou, Cajam, Indika, Meltout Crew, Sammy Virji (UKG set), Subsonic, Tsuki, and Zero.
The autumn shows are the label’s biggest endeavour yet, with other indoor festival events taking place at Digital in Newcastle on Friday 4 October, Rock City in Nottingham on Sunday 13 October, and a street party event at Lab 11 in Birmingham on Saturday 5 October.
Each one will apparently feature major artist line-ups, new talent, and state-of-the-art production. The brand is largely involved with the new wave of British bass music including D&B and garage and is helping to develop the ever-growing bassline sound that’s possibly becoming the soundtrack for a new generation of UK ravers, both in terms of recordings and live events.
The label itself works with bass music artists including bassline artists Skepsis and Darkzy and label mates Bru-C, Window Kid, Mr Virgo, Kanine, Lazcru and TS7.
