It’s no secret Austin, TX is a musical hotbed nurturing a wide variety of forward-thinking artists and niches, and 808K has become a vital part of the electronic music ecosystem with its dedication to forward-thinking, bass heavy dance music. Bass music has become a pretty broad descriptor for a range of styles including House, Dubstep, Trap, Juke, the Beat Scene, but the resident DJ’s behind 808K aren’t interested in narrowing down genres. In the words of 808K co-founder Nikes, “the goal is to showcase original and timeless music.” 808K was founded by local DJ’s Lefty and Nikes, who met in 2012 at a show in downtown Austin and bonded over their love for Dubstep and interest in DJing. The two decided to collaborate, and eventually found themselves a monthly slot at Austin’s premier bass music club, Barcelona ATX, marking the birth of 808K. After bringing in local favorites Ben Aqua and Sines, and introducing Austin to Chicago Juke/Footwork legends DJ Rashad and DJ Spinn, 808K looks ahead in showcasing new emerging styles from the Bass music world to the Austin club scene.
