Since forming in 2006, the Trouble & Bass crew has been synonymous with heavy bass music in the city that never sleeps. But to think we’re keeping to ourselves couldn’t be farther from the truth—our music and our way of life is continually inspired by collaborating with our musical neighbors in Brooklyn and beyond. Whether we’re up in the club, romping through the city streets, or chilling at our klubhaus next to the East River, we’re in constant contact with a pool of ultra-talented and inspiring DJs, producers, visual artists, and record labels from so many different scenes. For this project, we called up five of our coolest friends from around the way and asked them to create exclusive tracks based on the magical place we call home. Along the way, you’ll find out what makes various NYC neighborhoods tick: T&B label head Drop the Lime reps for Williamsburg and his native Tribeca; tropical house band Cubic Zirconia keeps the East Village on lock; Kingdom astrally projects between Queens and Greenpoint; Michna keeps it real in Downtown Brooklyn; and Hussle Club takes the pulse of the Lower East Side. Here’s a portrait of our New York City right now. Get your slice while it’s hot.
