When DJ/drum duo Bass Science came to town in late July, they had such a good time, they decided to come back.  They Played December 3 at 2826 Arnetic in Deep Ellum with local DJ collective Dub Assembly. 

Consisting of DJ/Producer MattB and drummer Devin Landau, Bass Science has a unique sound in the electronica genre of what Matt calls “glitch-hop.”  Their Friday night show was their first on a string of 12 dates, and it was a good start, with a crowd over 300 for the whole night.

This tour features a new set list, with a few remixes of songs from the last tour that Bass Science rocked until 2:15 a.m.  MattB proved that he is one of the finest DJ’s in the business with his impeccable sounds and commanding stage presence.

Arnetic has only been open for five months, but has been booking nationally touring acts, and become a viable choice for a club-size venue in Dallas.  However, the bar is slimly stocked, with a prickly bar staff.  The light production was great at the show with lasers, fog, and a light that made the floor look like Saturday Night Fever. The sound quality was adequate, but an untraditional speaker arrangement led to a lack of bass that is needed for this type of genre.
