This Labor Day, New York City will witness dance music history in the making. We’re excited to announce that the prodigal master of whomptastic bass house—Jauz—will be bringing his heavy-hitting, genre-mashing Off The Deep End party concept to Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro this year for his first festival stage takeover ever.
Jauz—real name Sam Vogel—has earned his Sunday stage takeover at Electric Zoo over the past few years, and he’s done it with style. Since muscling his way into the bass scene in 2014, Jauz has been dropping banger after banger on OWSLA, Monstercat, Spinnin’ and Mad Decent, and has collabed with Major Lazer, Skrillex, Marshmello, and Tiesto. By merging the wubbs of bass with the groove of house, Jauz has set worldwide dancefloors alight and captured imaginations with every drop. “I have been all around the world this year…But in 2017, I really wanted to bring it home. Off The Deep End will be a series dedicated to my most die-hard fans,” Jauz teased to Billboard recently.
In welcoming Jauz, The 6th Boro will be submerged in a sound that’s grown from the West Coast into a global phenomenon, courtesy of Jauz himself and a host of his favorite genre-mashing cohorts. Candy-coated anthem basher Slushii, UK drum and bass hero Sub Focus, free-wheeling bass-dropper JOYRYDE, and URL-to-IRL fan favorites K?D, Saint Wknd and Bijou round out a lineup that’s bursting with energy and character.
The occasion will be momentous in the career of the hotly tipped Jauz, and his legions of dedicated fans will be out in full force and full voice to witness the birth of a new star DJ, one with bite and beats in equal measure.blog comments powered by Disqus
