EUROPEAN TOUR INFO

Fall TourHello Bass Heads!

I remember years ago, the thought of playing a show in Europe felt like a Pilgrimage. When my agent started sending me to places like Arkansas on a Teusday and Tennessee on a Wednesday, I threw a fit. In my mind electronic music belonged in international meccas of prestige like London, Paris, Tokyo, New York. Not random spots in middle America where nobody even listens to electronic music.

But after a lot of international touring in 2002 and 2003 I had lost interest in an unlimited scope of travel, and I wanted to focus on building a deeper, more fanatic network locally. I began gravitating towards the idea of bringing the music to places where it did not exist previously, and kind of forging a path for bass music here in the states.

This was after the rave scene of the 1990’s had dissolved (or been extinguished) and i never expected to find such open arms scattered in essentially every American town I visited. So now after over 10 years of hardcore touring stateside, the number of bass heads is larger and more intense than I ever would have imagined. The shows are beyond a ‘rave’ and something more like an experience, and I am utterly stunned and grateful to continue taking this space ship deeper and deeper into the unkown.

But we figured, why not go back to Europe… I haven’t played in London since a night with Freq Nasty back in 2004 (or 2003?) since the schedule over here got so jam-packed.

This is exciting for several reasons; in part because it is a chance to explore fresh ears, and to delve much deeper into both the CLASSICs in my record box, and the baaaaangers that i have been rinsing over here. But also some of the shows over there are a whole different ball game… tiny-ass little rooms like I used to play regularly on stateside tours years and years ago.

While I do not mind the huge venues and huge stages over here, I do miss the impeccable freakishness of a low ceiling and a room, a bat-shit crazy crowd bouncing off the walls, and the feeling of borderline panic as the room apears to burst at the seams.

These next few days were supposed to be time off after the US shows, to prep for Canada, but we thought instead we would sail over the seas and rock some euro-bass-heads… If you have any good buddies over there, let them know the details:

CALGARY SOLD OUT OF ALL TICKETS for Friday Night, so we added a second night on Thursday @ the same venue (Flames Central)

And the final California show of the year @ Oakland’s Fox Theatre is a few tickets away from being completely sold out of tickets, so jump on it if you wanna be there.

Thanks again for all the love and support!

    oh if i only had potloads of dinero i would come to yer show in Dublin my Irish roots r a callin me! do it up propa Lorin and we'll see u in BC oh so soooooooon…….WHOOOOOOOOOOMP!!!xxoo

  • Hey Lorin,

    it’s the 3 German guys with the cardboard-signs from your amazing gig in Vienna on Saturday Nov. 20th.
    How you're doing?
    I hope you guys had a save trip home after the Europe tour …

    I’m glad you liked Vienna! Just read your “ready to go bananaaaaaaas! bada BOOOOOOM!” – post 😉
    We had a great time at the concert and we just wanted to say thank you for the Europe tour and the chance to see you here! We really appreciate it and hopefully a lot more people who didn’t know you before now appreciate your music.

    I saw you a couple of times before (Burning Man, PIKNIC ÉLECTRONIK Montreal) but it was really cool to talk to you for a bit for the first time.

    My friends went completely nuts that you spoke to us and couldn’t really believe it 😉 Thanks man, that definitely made our day!

    As I mentioned in Vienna, if you ever plan on coming back to Europe you might want to consider coming to Berlin.

    I’m pretty sure that Berlin is the Party/clubbing capitals of Europe! They have amazing smaller underground clubs which get really packed and which I think would be perfect for a concert …

    So yeah, thanks again for coming to Vienna, talking to us and showing us a great time!

    The 3 German Bassheads 😉

    I did have an orgasm during your show in Vienna… It was fucking mindblowing!!

  • Shana

    Lorin! The consumate gentleman……your show in Calgary last night was your best yet! The energy you were exuding was 100% absorbed. Genius work! What inpresses me the most is the time you spent at the end spreading your love to your fans. I took the opportunity to ask you a question about Shambhala, when what I should have said was you made my freakin' night by playing your sick ass remix fo the Deftones. Again, sheer genius!!!!! Love to you and those you love.
