WOBBLELAND 2011

By Austin Jones and Wes Bredin

Wobwobwobwobwobbleland….wow! What to say. Our heads are still ringing. Wobbleland was quite the experience….Imagine a typical rave, then add about 10db on top of that, drop the resonate frequency 100hz, remove any inhibitions you may have about stomping to dubstep, and voila…Wobbleland.  With a club capacity of 2500, it was as intimate as it was intense.

Two stages served to showcase the best dubstep producers/DJs in the business and when I say best, I mean THE best.  These included: Nero, Skrillex, Jakwob, Datsik, 12th Planet and more.   In a way, it was the best possible combination of all out insane wobbly magic, intimate performer/fan connection, and the convenience of being able to easily navigate from one stage to another given the relatively small venue. 

The performers, each and everyone of them, commanded the crowd from the first drop to the last wobble.  The reason for this was two fold.  1) The performers were all top notch and playing the best tracks dubstep/drumstep has to offer and,  2)  The dubstep audience is THIRSTY for good dubstep shows.

Although only 1/2 of NERO showed up, the performance did not suffer at all, and  the energy of the crowd resonated through the rafters. NERO drew rabid fans eager to rage all over the place. If you’ve never seen Nero now is the time before they and dubstep as a genre take over the U.S. Check out the tracks from NERO’s new EP including NERO vs. Daft Punk below.

You’ll notice lots of pics of Skrillex in our album as well. We at Golden Bloggen are huge Skillex nuthuggers. He smashed the back room with his signature style we like to call “dubtron.” Skirllex provided the best, most insane moment of the night as well as the biggest WTF moment of the night. The best moment was when he played “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites,” jumped up on his table, and stage dove 10 feet down onto ecstatic fans. Check out the pics of him crowd surfing HERE.

The biggest WTF moment was when he played Montel Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It.” Really Skrilly? Was your “Candy Rain” download corrupted? He quickly realized that didn’t work and went back to hardcore dub/electro.

Big thanks to Magnum PR & The Musebox for making one of the best nights of over 2000 dubstepper’s lives!
