Julio Bashmore: Show Preview

Julio Bashmore emerged from Bristol producing impeccably machined throwback house. His bouncy, synth-stabbed and cymbal-driven four-on-the-floor and reverb-washed disco gained early support from San Francisco's own Claude VonStroke and his Dirtybird imprint, followed by tremendous critical and commercial success with single “Au Seve” and production work for house diva Jessie Ware. Bashmore has balanced and updated the influences of jackin' Chicago house, crispy early '90s acid, seductive late-'90s French filter house, elastic '80s funk, and wiggling New Beat. Still finalizing his debut album, Bashmore will road test his hook-friendly, sub-rattling tendencies as roving house-music connoisseurs Lights Down Low and DJ Dials bring him out of the underground and into Mezzanine this Saturday.
