Addison Groove - Lost City @ ReBar Seattle 5/13/2016


10:30 - 3am / 21+ / $14 adv - $20 door




Addison Groove (aka Antony Williams) started life under a different pseudonym altogether. Recording as Headhunter, with an LP and 12” releases on the influential Tempa label stretching back to 2007, he achieved legendary status within the dubstep scene. His work at the deeper end of the spectrum graced the label an impressive 7 times, a figure matched only by Skream. This work looked set to continue until 2010 when, seemingly out of nowhere, he crafted one of the biggest bass music tracks of the decade, ‘Footcrab’, under the new name of Addison Groove.



The response to ‘Footcrab’ was phenomenal, receiving critical and commercial success in equal measure across the dance music scene. Getting plays not only from the dubstep DJs that Williams was used to reaching, it also found its way into the record boxes of techno and house heavyweights such as Aphex Twin, Surgeon, Ricardo Villalobos and Mr Scruff, bringing an enormous new audience to his music in the process. Taking influences from the Chicago ghetto tek and juke scenes, Addison Groove’s impact on UK bass music has been colossal and unprecedented, sparking a huge interest in these styles from his peers and the listening public alike.

Lost City is a fresh collaboration between veteran producers Noah D and No Thing based out of Los Angeles. The aim of Lost City is to bring a unique, new twist on the Jungle sound the two fell in love with over ten years ago by combining new structures, tempos and styles with the traditional breaks, sub bass and Reggae influences found in Jungle. The duo calls this new amalgamation of the old and new simply, “JNGL”.


Noah D started in electronic music with a wide range of Drum N Bass releases including the classic, Good Sound with reggae legend Anthony B which also saw DNB star Benny Page on remix duties. Years later he followed with groundbreaking Dubstep tunes including, Seeeriousss and Examination of Time with Babylon System. More recently SMOG Records put out his first full length artist album entitled, Perspective which included collaborations with Antiserum and Truth, as well as vocal appearances by The Grouch and UK Grime stars, P Money and Newham Generals. Over the years his tunes have been rinsed by the likes of Skream, Dj Hype, 12th Planet, Dieselboy, and Mista Jam to name a few.

For the past ten years No Thing has been collaborating with powerhouse producers like Noah D, Antiserum, Truth, Babylon System, and SPL. Tunes like Fully Loaded, Examination of Time, Murderous, Gangster and “All as One” made it to the playlists of Skream, Bassnectar, N-Type, Plastician and Excision.
