Love Hz: Monthly Bass & Boozefest
THE RETURN OF DEF_JEF
Straight out of the TuF StL crew, which was responsible for some the greatest parties thrown this side of the millennium from 42 cent Djs and Chop Suey to Soulstice, Def_Jef is back on the scene and killing it.
Def_Jef absolutely smashed the place last August alongside Carnal Motive, busting out the tearout destroyers for the early crowd. With chops that will impress everyone from the casual drum & bass listener to the seasoned junglist, Def_Jef has proven to be one of the most versatile selectors in St. Louis.
Get ready for sick tunes and a few surprises from this TuF StL veteran.

[Extropy Entertainment / Elements of Bass]
K_I_T has been rocking drum & bass parties in and around the Saint Louis area for years with residencies at Bass & Bliss and GAME. He has also recently started a new Elements of Bass monthly at The Cherry Lounge. K_I_T’s signature Jungle-tinged sets are always sure to get the crowd moving.
Born to diverse regional music legends, genetics lead MYNX to begin manipulating sound in 2005 alongside another St. Louis legend with whom she apprenticed live. As a result of her blended background, the overall style of MYNX indiscriminately spans genre, language, and mood, celebrating the genius of bass lines around the world.
R E F L U X U A T I O N
Refluxuation’s attention to details in sound began in the industrial music push of the early nineties. The first polyphonic synth obsessions came with exposure to “NIN Broken”. This work gave way to an addiction for multitrack, multi-filter works by artists such as Ministry, KMFDM, Machines of Loving Grace, Skinny Puppy and the likes. Digging for roots found joy in groups like Depeche Mode, INXS, The Cure, and New Order. A couple of years and a few too many industrial metal and melancholy shows later, Trance and House music found their way to the audio palate via the search for new digital sound and the allure of warehouse parties. The mixture of complex sound with a constant backbone compatible for dancing became the next step in the evolutionary process of Refluxuation’s proverbial birth. Drum & Bass, Jungle and Beakbeats have become the vortex of Refluxuation’s need for audio stimulation by providing the essential elements of previous obssesions and the simple pleasures of low frequency. The result is an entity that is in need of constant mix and is desperate to shake walls at appropriate venues.

[Warrior Drum Recordings]
Cryptonix (Brian Bradley), hailing from Williamsburg, Virginia, blends the freshest neurofunk with the classic sounds of the techstep rollers that helped to define the genre. In 1999 Brian adopted a style inspired by DC heavyweights like Rob F & Impulse, Slant, and Tittsworth, as well as UK junglists Bad Company and Ed Rush & Optical. By 2000, Brian was spinning two separate weekly parties in the Virginia Beach area, Vinyl and Meltdown (under the name DJ Gonzo). In 2011, after a long hiatus, Brian moved to Saint Louis, Missouri, and started spinning under the name Cryptonix. He could be seen on many occasions spinning the Dedication weekly and the Love Hz monthly. Late 2013 saw the launch of Warrior Drum Recordings, a collaboration between Brian and Jaizen Mokwa. Around the same time, Cryptonix took the helm of the Love Hz monthly, and since has been booking the best drum & bass DJs in and around Saint Louis.
