Sharp v Lexxus, the Beets!, Cannadub and Axiom MC!!

Yo! While part of the Crew will be in MIAMI this Thursday, holding it down at the World of DnB, San Francisco will still be rocking with the sounds of DJ SHARP vs. Lexxus (in a rare DnB appearance!), the fucking BEETS!, CANNADUB the Canadian Assassin, and the incomparable MC AXIOM.

If you can't make it to Florida, at least roll your ass out to TEMPLE and party like you did! Trust: the club will be banging, with the energy from last Friday still echoing through its halls. GO YOU FUCKING JUNGLISTS, GO!!

WoDnB San Fran: THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get at the other pics here.

Biggest ups to the front row crew, everyone that was going APE to the SHIT the whole damn time. THAT was COMPRESSION STYLES.

Also mad props to FSOUND. Bro, it was almost TOO LOUD, TOO BASSIN in there last night. SICK TO DEATH.

Let us know how your night went at the comments below. Check the photos, above, and be sure to post links to yours.

Last year's biggest DnB party is BACK and SCARY BIG. Sicker line-up, TEMPLE hospitality, ultra-reinforced FSOUND*.

San Francisco, you ain't ready.

Line-Up Includes:
Adam F
Bryan Gee
Simon Bassline Smith
Distorted Minds
DJ Apollo
Killa Kella
Greenlaw Live
MC Tali
MC Question Mark
and the Compression Crew, of course . . .

* Last year, the soundsystem at 1015 left much to be desired, and we want to make up for it. So this year, above and beyond TEMPLE's sick ass soundsystem, we're bringing in FSOUND, San Fran's number one drum and bass soundsystem. Remember the Temple party with Dieselboy and Hive? Remember how the bass was so big in the basement you almost experienced the brown sound and pooed your pants? FSOUND is bringing TWICE AS MUCH BASS for the World of DnB. Without hyperbole, this will the be the biggest, loudest, most bassinest drum and bass party in San Francisco History. Please remember your earplugs!!

Compression Crew, Come Out and Play!!

All right, for all you boppers out there in the big city, you street people with an ear for the action, I've been asked to relay a request from the Gramercy Riffs. It's a special for the Compression Crew. That's that real live bunch from Temple. And I do mean the Compression Crew. Here's a hit with them in mind. Be looking good, Compression, all the way back to Temple. You hear me, babies? Good. Real good. Adios.

It's been two weeks of battling our way through other crews: the Metalheadz, the Reflexors, even the fucking Beets!
But now we've made it home and the COMPRESSION CREW is charged to get back to business. DIRTY BUSINESS. So COME OUT AND PLAY this Thursday with:


Free before 11pm; $5 after.
Check your weapons and colors at the door!

Thursday the 28th: Lukeino, the Heights and the Beets!!

Check the rest of the pictures out HERE

Sweet jesus, Goldie was ROCKIN. The crowd partied like it was 1999, Mal and 4 Real killed the world, and Audio Angel came back to life to help the Colonel hype it up about as hyped as it could get. It was one for the books, no doubt! (Stay tuned for ridiculous photos from La Loca.)

This week, we keep the vibe rolling (all the way down hill to the WORLD OF DRUM AND BASS ON MARCH 21) with Compression friends LUKEINO & the HEIGHTS:

You know these two pimps. Representing REFLEX crew, Lukeino is one of San Francisco's old guard, a true original who will drop your girl's panties and make you scream like you're being murdered, all with the same song. At his side will be The Heights, one of BADNB's freshest and most promising DJs. He made his name at the Love Fest in 2006 (I can never turn that corner in front of the Civic Center without thinking of his set) and continues to rock dancefloors like a motherfucking hurricaine.

These fools are coming with a stack of their own fresh beats that, TRUST ME, will cold rock the party like MC Lyte.

But, like, if that wasn't enough to convince you to drag yer chunky butt up off the couch and come party with us, it's also time again for

THE BEETS! Compression heads and the city's best upcoming, upfront drum and bass DJ's.

Now, we could talk about the EPIC set they played last time, but let me tell you this: one night the Compression crew was out on the back porch, getting TOE UP, and all of a sudden we heard somebody drop "Rubbish" at a nearby houseparty. We look, and there's all these people going apeshit in somebody's kitchen, hands in the air apeshit to full-throttle DnB. The DJ's were dropping bomb after bomb, every two minutes another bomb. We're all chilling on the portch, laughing, going "shit, who the hell are those guys?" It was the fucking BEETS.

In a day when most people don't even know what DnB is, the BEETS rocked that house party like George Clinton on crack. And that, as they say, is COMPRESSION STYLES.
