The Pirate & Smasheltooth: Booms & Claps Mix Series 19

The Booms And Claps mix series is the brainchild of BoomsAndClaps.com, self-described “bass nerds” who realized they wanted to show listeners a new world of bass, trap and electronic music. So far they’ve featured artists such as Aztek, Shiny Things and Tiger Fresh and the websites features interviews with Euphoric favorites like Lafa Taylor and G Jones.

Mix Series 19 features another two of our personal favorites: The Pirate and Smasheltooth. For years this DJ couple has dropped beats throughout the Bay Area along with festivals like Northern Nights and the Santa Cruz Music Fest. While they don’t always perform together, the rare times I have seen them co-DJ at Motiv in Santa Cruz, it’s a musical treat to be heard. Lucky for you, this is just what they did for the latest Booms And Claps installment.

First and foremost, the mix kicks-off with an adorable intro by their neighbor’s child that can make even the coldest of hearts giggle with innocence. Smasheltooth starts first with the two switching between 15 minute sets, gracefully transitioning into each other’s music.

“Smash mixed in a lot of well curated club bangers including trap and Southern hip hop” Pirate says. “So I came in with the booms and claps of the Northwest Bass Scene.”

But don’t expect this to be your run-of-the-mill bass set because these two always have something new up their sleeve.

“The last track is BSN Posse out of Milagro, Spain,” Pirate explains. “It has this beauty to it and sounds like what you’d expect to be playing on European beaches.”

 

 

THE PIRATE – BASS TRIBE’S SPRING BLING MIX SERIES 17

It’s April, the sun’s out and that means it’s time to work on the beach tan during the day and pop bottles in the sweat-filled clubs at night. No party gets cracking without the right beats and Santa Cruz’s own The Pirate has just the mix to get those asses shaking.

Whether it’s spinning tracks at Emissions or setting up shows with Raindance Productions at clubs throughout San Francisco and Santa Cruz, The Pirate has worked ’round-the-clock in the Bay Area and Northern California EDM scene for a better part of the last decade. With a wide range of musical taste, the Pirate perfectly blends reggae, trap, hip hop, dub and even calypso into hard-hitting, one-of-a-kind tracks.

His latest mix is 29 minutes of slammin’ beats and intoxicating rhythms for the Bass Tribe’s “Spring Bling” series. From start to finish, Pirate pulls the fun and obscure together in a blend you can’t help but play over and over. One glance at that tracklist and it’s easy to see how he managed to gain over 1300 plays in under a week.
