Kicking off Bassrush Massive, Space Jesus set the vibes for the night opening with his classic reggae inspired song “HMU” ft. Clay Parnell and Rory “Sweet Boy” Dolan. With the mood set, the crowd was ready to gaze into the galactic visual and laser show that nearly melted the pupils of all in attendance. Next, G Jones blasted onto the stage, throwing down some sick wubs backed with some seriously hypnotic imagery. He treated us to a special night, that included dropping his newest track, “Time”. The booming bellows of church bells, pixelated mechanical clock beats, and the speeding and slowing of the tempo blended into one cohesive moment where time is precious yet eternal.
Zeds Dead and NGHTMRE closed out the night with plenty of crowd favorites and some more melodic bass. One notable moment was when ZD performed “Lights Go Down” a collaboration with JAUZ which had the entire room singing in unison. NGHTMRE did not disappoint, hitting the crowd in the feels with songs like “Gud Vibrations”, his collaboration with Slander. Overall, the mood at Rawhide was electric and fluid, allowing audience members to rage and reflect.
