What’s Going to Happen with Trouble & Bass?


If you’re a fan of Trouble & Bass, you might have noticed images of a Trouble & Bass gravestone floating around the internet. You might have even heard rumors that Trouble & Bass is closing up shop.

But when our friends at Cultivora asked Drop the Lime about the fate of Trouble & Bass, he was pretty mysterious… check out the video below.

Our Top Five Picks for Dimensions Festival

OK, we can say it now. We’ve got less than one week until the worlds most educated party people touch down in Croatia for the much-anticipated premier of Dimensions Festival (unless you are a true-G and already getting down at Outlook).

Let’s talk about the artists we just can’t wait to see:

Little Dragon

Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, Little Dragon gives a performance that mustn’t be missed!  Lead singer Yukimi Nagano’s strong and sensual voice, paired with the perfect mix of percussion and electronic sound, makes for nothing less than perfection.  After seeing the band recently at Celebrate Brooklyn’s free summer concert series, we are even more eager to reunite in the forts of Punta Christo.

Levon Vincent

American born artist, Levon Vincent, aims to provide us with positive vibrations through his tropical, methodically manicured, and joint weakening sound.  There is nothing we won’t give to hear “Double Jointed Sex Freak pt. 3” on the shores of Pula.

Mount Kimbie (live)

This British duo took us all on a glorious journey through space after releasing their first and only full length, titled “Crooks and Lovers”. It was announced earlier this year they were signed to Warp records and are currently working on a second album. Let us thank them for taking the time…Dimensions wouldn’t be the same without you.

A lot of things are left uncertain when it comes to supposedly U.K. born collective, Δkkord. One thing, however, is for certain, based on a few releases that blessed us in 2012, we know they can make a proper bass tune.  Part break-beat, part techno, listen below for a taste. We can’t wait to experience the mystery that is Δkkord.


Brooklyn’s own Travis Stewart has taken the music world by storm. Whether its owning his own record label, collaborating with the amazing Praveen Sharma to produce the sounds of Sepalcure, or just plain smashing things up under his stage name Machinedrum, we love and support Travis to no end. Can’t wait to see you in Croatia.

As we prepare ourselves for another dimension, lets give thanks that we are among those going to experience the wonder that is Pula. Dimensions 2012, here we come.

Introducing Dimensions Festival in Croatia

Dimensions is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited! Brought to us by the well known and loved Outlook Festival, Dimensions focuses its sound on house, bass, and the deeper end of the electronic music spectrum. This year’s lineup, which is stacked with jaw dropping artists, does not fail to amaze even the most critical of music critics. The bill includes Little Dragon, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Mount Kimbie, and Levon Vincent, just to name a few. And as if the line up wasn’t solid enough, it’s recently been confirmed that Nicolas Jaar will also grace the headlining spot. We almost can’t believe it…!

The festival takes place on the breathtaking coast of Pula, Croatia at Fort Punta Christo, the legendary site that is also shared with its big brother Outlook Festival just a few days prior. Taking advantage of its surroundings, you can also find a number of boat parties that will cruise the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. What could be better?

If you are looking for comfortable and affordable accommodations, don’t fret. There are a number of options, which include camping, hostels, and private apartments. We managed to find a sweet place via Airbnb, a trusted online host for apartment/home rentals.

Be sure to check out Cultivora’s guide for travel tips and insights!

Play #GovBingo with Cultivora at Governors Ball this Weekend

The Governors Ball Music Festival kicks off tomorrow on NYC’s Randall’s Island, and we didn’t think we could be anymore excited. That is until Cultivora came up with their very own Instagram bingo game, #GovBingo, which will be held during the festival this weekend. The winner will receive a pair of tickets to next year’s Gov Ball.

The rules are simple: take pictures at the festival that correspond to the bingo board, and upload them using Instagram. You must hashtag your post with #GovBingo and the corresponding bingo square for it to count. (CLICK HERE for a full-sized version of the bingo board).

Every time you get a “bingo” pattern (see below), you will be entered to win a pair of tickets to Gov Ball 2013. The more bingos you get, the better your chances of winning. You can also increase your odds by sharing your Instagram posts on Twitter; just remember to use the hashtags so they can find your photos.

To be eligible, make sure you’re following @cultivora and @govballnyc on Instagram (and Twitter, if applicable). In order to enter the contest, you must have an Instagram account with public view settings.

#GovBingo will begin at 11am Saturday, June 23, and will end on Monday, June 25 at noon (in case there’s no cell service on Randall’s Island). Once the contest closes, the team at Cultivora will compile the bingo boards and announce the winner on Wednesday, June 27 via Instagram. Good Luck!
