As you no doubt already know Innovation In The Dam is a full weekend D&B experience set across 3 nights, in 2 of Amsterdams most incredible venues, but that’s not all, we also host one of the worlds largest drum and bass boat parties!! This morning tickets went on general release for our daytime event at Innovation In The Dam 2018, the boat party hosted by Basslayerz!

But who are Basslayerz?

Since 2011, the BassLayerz crew have been shutting down dances as an explosive two-emcee and one-deejay combination.

The roots go much deeper than that though…

After all, one of the trio is the veteran mic man $pyda. Coming up through the dancehall soundsystem scene of the eighties, he was making tunes before he was even a teenager. After linking up with MC Bassman to form the first incarnation of the Shadow Demon crew, he became one of jungle music’s most recognisable voices. Fast-forward to the present day, via multiple huge residencies, collaborations with the likes of Drumsound & Bassline Smith, DJ Fresh and Pendulum, and $pyda’s place in the drum and bass hall of fame is assured.

$pyda’s back-to-back sparring partner is MC Blu Bomma. Over the last few years, this versatile emcee has stormed into the consciousness of the raving massive. With thousands of YouTube views and Soundcloud plays, and having graced some of the biggest stages drum ‘n’ bass has to offer, he’s one of the biggest rise-through-the-ranks success stories of recent times. As co-writer on “Tarantula” with Spyda, he’s also chalked up enviable studio credentials.

Rounding out the team is their selector of choice Slipz. Establishing himself as a grime and bassline producer, he’s worked with a roll call of luminaries including Daddy Freddy, Jocelyn Brown, Aquasky, Dapz, and Trigga. Since turning his attention to drum ‘n’ bass, his tunes have been supported by the likes of Nicky Blackmarket, Logan D, and Andy C, proving that he’s a deadly prospect in the studio, or behind the decks, whatever the bpm.

To put it simply, BassLayerz are one of the biggest crews in drum ‘n’ bass right now. As award-winning promoters and performers with an on-stage chemistry born of long-standing friendship, these Robin Hood country representatives take the roof off the rave every time…..
