Sweater Beats / Druid Cloak / Bassdread
We are excited to kick off the 2014 year with our first Bass Tribe Baltimore show at one of the most well known venues in the area, the 8×10. With a combination of heavy bass and sexy beats we plan on making this event one for the books!
Seducing the world via his own brand of dream-soaked pop and lushed out r&b, Antonio Cuna, aka Sweater Beats, is a force to be reckoned with. Since the release of his single “MLLN DLLR” on Bondax’s Justus Recordings in 2012, Cuna has garnered support from tastemakers like Diplo and Annie Mac, and has delivered standout mixes for Boiler Room, SSENSE, and Red Bull Studios. His debut EP for Symbols (“That Feel”) sees Antonio implementing more organic instrumentation, as well as original vocals, and the finished product is a strong vision of the future of Pop and R&B. Sweater Beats’ next project is slated for LA imprint and long-time affiliate Huh, What & Where for early 2014.
Baltimore’s own Bassdread’s DJ performance sets are highly infused with ever-present conscious raw energy and filled with a high range of sounds melding genres seamlessly, covering spirit quenching carnival and juke, heavy weight future bass to soulful and hard hitting dubstep. He has been featured on FILTH.FM, 88.9FM in Baltimore and many coastal festivals as well as the founder of What’s Good Mixtapes; he has also shared the stage with world famous acts such as Skream & Benga, Moby, Infected Mushroom, Datsik, Excision, Zeds Dead, Evol Intent, DJ Hype, Kill the Noise, 16 Bit, Dillon Francis, WEEZER, Stephan Marley and countless others!
