The Vast Parlor with BMA and special guest Sideswipe

On August 2nd, 2017 we welcome the man known as Sideswipe as we continue to push the boundaries of drum and bass / jungle / halftime / doomdub.

Originally from the UK, Philadelphia based Sideswipe fuses footwork, jungle and soul to create a different flavor at 160 beats per minute. 

After DJ-ing a wide range of genres in London and Philadelphia, Sideswipe began producing in 2012 debuting with remixes and edits on Ground Mass Music. This was followed in 2014 by a breakthrough vinyl release on Modern Ruin alongside Pawn, The Renegades and Vorres. Two extended plays followed shortly with “Steppin’ Out” (Dynamix Records) and “Memories” (Ground Mass) alongside appearances on Philthtrax, SmashTales and Dred Collective throughout 2014.

After an extended break, Sideswipe returned in 2015 with a new collaborative project with Nikes (808K) and Iyer (Phyla) named Forbidden Trax, an outlet for the trios bootleg work. Late 2016 saw the successful 'Fracture Patterns' EP on Modern Ruin followed by a collaborative album on Iberian Juke in early 2017 with artists from Spain and the USA including BSN Posse.
Forthcoming releases and remixes on Tru Thoughts, Black Marble Collective and Iberian Juke later this year.

Sideswipe is resident DJ alongside Dev79 at ONESIXTY Philly.
