This found footage comes courtesy of Joshua Robinson of konkrè|films. It chronicles DJs, AC Slater and Daniel Disaster’s (Heroes and Villains) jaunt in Mobile, Alabama for a show on March 4. The video, set to the catchy dubstep remix, The Sound Of Violence (Tha Trickaz Remix) by Cassius, is a grimy peak into their world. Not safe for work, it features some unadulterated tour moments complete with groupies, gators, decomposing bunnies and the occasional panty-clad lapdance. Filthy trash. Prudes need not apply. Ah, to be young and reckless again.

AC SLATER (Trouble and Bass/ Party like us) NYC

Brooklyn used to be known for its brownstone houses and pizza, but these days AC Slater (a.k.a. Aaron Clevenger) is working hard at making sure the borough is a hotspot on the worldwide map of heavy bass. Raised on ’90s hip-hop and nourished by old skool rave, Slater has combined his influences and love of music to birth his own production style, which is currently breathing life into subwoofers worldwide.

Last year, Slater joined the Trouble & Bass family, as well as starting his own record label, Party Like Us. With a notorious musical family behind him, 10 years behind the decks, and an arsenal of original tracks and remixes, Slater is set to take on the world. He continues to display his excellent DJing skills from Europe to the UK, from Canada to Mexico, from Asia to Australia and everywhere in between, leaving pumping adrenaline and wobbly speakers behind him wherever he goes. His music is consistently played on the UK’s tastemaking BBC Radio 1 and Kiss 100, and his tracks have appeared in DJ sets from Crookers, Armand Van Helden, Jack Beats, Craze, Tommie Sunshine, Freestylers, MSTRKRFT, Sinden, Drop the Lime, and Stanton Warriors, to name a few.

With AC’s first major EP, Jack Got Jacked (released in September 2008 on Palms Out Sounds), hitting the #1 bestseller position on Juno, Moby picking his remix of Turn the Music Up as one of the top 10 songs of the decade, and being named one of Beatport and XLR8R Magazine’s Artists to Watch in 2009, the world is about to hear a lot more from AC Slater.


Heroes and Villains (Haute Mess/ Heavy/ Grand Hustle) ATL

The bastard degenerate of pop culture has revealed himself.

Atlanta bred aural anarchist, producer/DJ Daniel Disaster is pleading guilty to all charges related to the subversive Dirty South Bass Conspiracy coined Heroes & Villains, testifying to a decade of premeditated blood, sweat, and bass.

T.I., Young Jeezy, Justin Timberlake, Young Dro, Yung LA, and Lil Wayne…no I’m not reading off your little brother’s iPod playlist. This is just a few of the many artists Daniel has worked with. By day, this Grand Hustle hitman’s invisible hand has been helping facilitate the infamous swag movement infiltrating commercial radio the world over.

As producer, Daniel uses the moniker Heroes+Villains to produce an authenticated formula of house, punk, dubstep, electro, rap and hardcore, including official remixes for his trap-star colleagues Roscoe Dash’s All the Way Turnt Up and Waka Flocka’s Oh Let’s Do It. His latest of Gucci Mane’s Lemonade was recently even number 1 on Hype Machine, after being blessed by Diplo x La Roux mixtape.

As a DJ, Atlanta‘s reigning pied piper went under the alias Megan Foxxx and launched his own monthly party titled HEAVY in order to paint the picture of his new soundtrack, and East Atlanta’s sceny underworld instantly mutated, fiending for a rare strand of bass that only the Dirty South can spawn. You see, Daniel isn’t just an act of Disaster, he’s a paradox: a Villain to those pussy cocktail drinking cronies who only go out to pose in the outfit they bought two hours ago; a Hero to the derelicts who incite dance riots, and for the dames who tame the beast.
