As we near the end of 2021, we’ve seen an incredible resurgence of sound system culture. Bass music legend ENiGMA Dubz makes his much-anticipated return to The Black Box for Electronic Tuesdays on December 7!
With his latest releases on DUPLOC and Deep Dark and Dangerous, ENiGMA Dubz has helped fuel the fire from overseas with massive dubstep tunes “Too Close to the Sun,” “Tunnel Vision,” “The Eyes,” and more.
Back to the Roots
Sound system culture is back on the rise in 2021 as we’ve returned to a live setting. In Denver and across the country, artists and fans alike are focusing more on the quality of their audio experience. With the latest upgrades and incredibly talented staff, The Black Box remains at the forefront of this movement.
For James Vine, aka ENiGMA Dubz, it all began in 2008 creating garage tunes at home eventually landing his Faithless bootleg as a BBC Radio 1 track of the month. After catching the pioneers Skream and Digital Mystikz live in action, the project we know today was born.
Following a short hiatus, he made it back to the studio in 2019 and eventually the stage. This set him up for a release right as interest in vinyl began to skyrocket in the bass community. In early 2020, ENiGMA Dubz teamed up with DUPLOC for a compilation alongside Ternion Sound, Hebbe, and more that set the Bass Vinyl Facebook group on fire.
Keep it on Wax
Since then, he’s released a flood of tracks weaving through downtempo, drum and bass, and roots-driven dubstep. 40 Fathoms and The Cosmos EPs indicate there’s still much more to come. We are thrilled to finally catch these heart-pounding tracks as they were intended.
For his return to The Black Box, he’s joined by November’s Producer Showcase winners and local favorites including Frostbyte! In the lounge, we’ve got this month’s first showcase featuring Merman.g, Skvlly, and more!
Get there early and show support for some incredibly talented local artists in both rooms!
