REVIEW: BFM Presents MartyParty @ Drom w/ Hellfire Machina + Special Guests

Over the past year, Bass Fueled Mischief have been bringing some of the hugest names in bass to NYC including Chase & Status, Designer Drugs, Flux Pavilion, Doctor P, Zeds Dead, Mt. Eden, Funtcase, etc, and this weekend was no different. On Friday night, BFM brought a SICK lineup (and a huge crowd of sweaty, vibing, bass-loving party animals) to lower east side club Drom. The event sold out a short time after doors opened!

Around 11pm, BFM’s own Max Mischief, and the MC of the night Posi-D, took the stage and really riled up the crowd. The event didn’t even until the wee hours of the morning, closing after 4am with NEOREV.

More after the jump!!

Hellfire Machina

Hellfire Machina took the stage around 12:15am and I was honestly so impressed by this set. Their ability to transition from house, to moombahton, to moombahcore, to ‘brostep’, and finally to dubstep and old school dub/garage was flawless and absolutely incredible. It was especially exciting to hear a DJ play Skream’s ‘Midnight Request Line’, and Benga’s ‘Night (feat. Coki)’, some classic tracks that people really don’t play at shows anymore. (I imagine they were giving us a little preview of an absolutely HUGE show they’re bring to NYC in March. Deets HERE!) They were really able to set the stage for chill, purple sounds of MartyParty.

Notable Tracks:
Redlight – Get Out Of My Head
Redlight – Get Out Of My Head (Joker Remix)
Dismantle – Computation
Trolley Snatcha – Make My Whole World


Around 1:40am, MartyParty took the stage and really got the crowd going. His set was almost 2 hours long, consisting of completely original tracks, remixes, and mashups. A lot of tracks were from his newest full-length album ‘Six Shots of Jameson’. Not a single person could stand still during this set. He dropped some realllyyyyy ridiculous tunes including his purple remix of the Sister Nancy classic ‘Bam Bam’, his mashup of Flux Pavilion’s ‘Bass Cannon’ and Doctor P’s ‘Reasons (Doctor P Remix), and an exclusive purple A$AP Rocky remix he made for the tour. The ‘Six Shots’ Tour has barely even started so if you’re anywhere near one of the coming stops, you definitely shouldn’t miss it!!!

Notable Tracks
MartyParty – Just Because Of You
Adele – Rolling In The Deep (Deathstar Remix feat. MartyParty & Minnesota)
Waka Flocka Flame – Hard In Da Paint (MartyParty Purple Remix)
MartyParty – Bully
MartyParty – Addicted To Money
MartyParty – Love Doctor

    Ooah would not stand for this!

    I’m sorry I have to be the negative nancy in the room, but Marty DID NOT play many of the purple bass tracks which originally launched his career. I was extremely disappointed by this show. I completely understand wanting to play “for the crowd”, but sticking to 90% brostep throughout a 2 hour set is just atrocious. When Marty makes music with The Glitch Mob’s Ooah under the name PantyRaid, their music is creatively abundant and fresh. Ooah would never make a brostep track in his life. There are WAY too many melodies and harmonies floating through his ever evolving cranium to do so. I like how you pointed out that one of the standout tracks from Marty’s set was “Addicted To Money”. This phrase can be the only logical reason why Marty would decide to create and perform the droning and harmony-free basslines typified by brostep. Marty, stick to what got you booked on a national tour in the first place. Complete originality and PURPLE. This will prove useful in the long run.
