The ICG Soundclash Tour: A Journey through Bass Culture
Realising they shared a love of all things 'Bass Music' Tessa & VISO headed out on the 1st Soundclash Tour in April 2012, playing out in France, Belgium, Netherlands, and Germany.
These two 'Bass heads' met in July 2011 at ICG's 'A Punky Reggae Tribute to Ari Up' (of The Slits), an official one off tribute to the late Punk/Reggae singer and step daughter of John Lydon. The night was put together by Tessa (Slits), VISO and Inner City Grit and included DJ sets and performances from Adrian Sherwood, Mark Stewart, Viv Albertine, Flash, Nora Forster (Ari's mum) and many more.
This October they will be battling out a wider selection of bass heavy music, taking you on a journey through Dub, Reggae, Roots and Dancehall to Future Bass, Post-Dubstep, Bass Culture and beyond. Keeping the party going strong and the people skanking through the night in unity until the early hours of the morning!
