We’ve got some big things planned for the end of this year!!!
Aside from our usual benefits such as Q-jump, DJ / Production lessons and socials, we have the distinct possibility of some big-name bookings and collaboration with other popular alternative event organizers!!
Coming up, we will be able to offer our members half price tickets to SEEDY SONICS at RAINBOW WAREHOUSE in Birmingham and also discount to REHAB WAREHOUSE in COVENTRY … should interest persist!
Furthermore, in aid of this exciting news and upcoming events we have just ordered a brand new banner from Discount Banner Printing!!! …
The banner arrived after just 3 days and is great quality!! We ordered a big 4m banner and have been really impressed, would highly recommend their services to others at the university!!
Warwick Bass welcomes you to the biggest night of the year: The 20 years of RAM anniversary at the Rainbow Warehouse, Birmingham. This promises to be one hell of a night, showcasing some of the best DnB has to offer in a huge venue.
We’ve teamed up with Uni Express to organise a bus there and back for extra ease with drop offs in Leamington and Campus; Travel from campus only £9 for Warwick Bass members and £12 for non-members. (Difference is the cost of membership, go ooon )
We’ll be setting the mood right with a social (location tbc) and some pre-drinks on campus from 9-11pm before hopping on the bus.
Travel from campus to the Rainbow Warehouse for 00:00, returning late.
This event will definitely sell out, so get your tickets now!

DJ Lessons & Production
In addition to the pre drinks and the queue jumps for local nights we will of course be running our highly acclaimed DJ lessons. Last year one of our beginner students at the Warwick BASS DJ academy ended up performing on campus at the ministry of sound night after 2 terms of lessons. Our taster session is free for all so come down and see if you have some untapped mad skillz on the decks?ydetails to follow…
The very first Warwick Bass music production meetup will be held on Wednesday week 2. If you have had any experience producing, whether you’ve got a fancy mac using logic or just messing around on fruity loops, you will be more experienced then me. If you are a complete beginner please come too as this will be a learning process for us all.
We also have our first ever Warwick Bass DJ Competition. Its open to any DJs who are up for the challenge. Check out the facebook event for it:
Good luck people and get mixing!!!
Check the Facebook Event!
CHEAP DRINKS – £1.75 PINTS!!!
We’re back for term 3, returning strong with our philosophy of good music and good times remaining unchanged. Come down below Robbin’s Well to the Bassment, celebrating Bass music from some of the best local and student DJs. Expect House, Breaks, Dubstep and DnB.
To get there from campus just hop on the U1 or 12 outside the arts centre and get off at the church in Leamington, then it’s right across the road.
It has been a mental year so far, and as the last term brings the pressure of exams it’s important we all knuckle down to some good partying
A few announcements to be made:
Bassment has grown throughout the year, and is back for its 4th round on the 5th May at Robbins well. Come down for the usual combination of friendly faces and slammin’ bass.
XXXY is playing first EVE of this term and as usual predrinks will be at 83 Charles Gardner Rd. Come along around 9 for some sick tunes to get you in the mood for some migraine skanking and general debauchery later on.
CUT feat. CAMO & KROOKED – You’d be mad to miss this one! We will most probably start the night off at the same address as previously mentioned so drop by the beats and company of the coolest kids on the block.
Unfortunately owing to exam stresses of all our resident DJs there will be no more DJ lessons this term, will be resuming next year as normal.
RaW are running two shows next term, one based on all forms of electronic music and the other just on House music. They’d like to include a guest mix each week, about 15-20 minutes long. If you’d like the chance to have your mixes heard on air, then drop Joe Dunn an email at J.Dunn@warwick.ac.uk.
Not only this, but once exams are over expect more trips, nights out and possibly even a field party on campus!
Best of luck with your exams and see you all soon!

Tonight is the last CUT of term. Friction is back to supply us with double drop dnb madness with SP:MC laying down lines and providing the hype. Funtcase will be spewing out some grinding crunchy dubstep for you all and The Prototypes will round it all off with another dose of fast paced dnb.

In addition to the currently announced positions we are also looking for a Music Diversity Sec. Because of this change the deadline has been increased to Friday 2nd March.
Music Diversity Exec:
It is the job of the Music Diversity Exec to ensure that the society is up to date and engaged with all genres of Bass Music. He/She is expected to know the big names in every major genre, know about the big gigs coming up and update our facebook page and website to reflect what’s popular amongst members. The Music Diversity Exec will be expected to post a couple new tracks or mixes each week on both the website and facebook page. In addition, he or she will work closely with the Events Manager to ensure that the society holds a wide range of events each term.
The deadline for exec position applications is the 29th of February (next Wednesday). If you wanna get involved and run for a position, go for it. If you know someone that might be interested or that you think would make a good exec, get on their case and encourage them to apply. It doesn’t matter how involved you’ve been in the past, all that matters is that you’re willing to get stuck in for the coming year. To apply, please reply to this email with:
Your name + contact details
Who you are and your music taste
Which exec position you’re running for
100 words as to why you should be exec/ what you’d like to do as exec
The positions are:
The president is the figurehead of the society. It is his/her responsibility to organise and lead regular exec meetings to ensure proper delegation, make sure everything is going according to plan and fix things that are going wrong. The president is the main contact for outside organisations who are interested in working with Warwick Bass, however he/she may often ask one of the other exec members to interact with and manage a contact. The president has the final say in all issues and it is his/her responsibility to ensure that all interactions between Warwick Bass and other organisations are in the interest of the society and its members. It is also the job of the president to ensure that the society abides by SU regulations and the law.
To run for president you need to be passionate about Warwick Bass and be able to play an active role in getting things done, particularly when situations are difficult. You would ideally already have experience organising events and dealing with commercial organisations.
When the president is away, the vice president takes on his responsibilities. He/she will accompany the president to all important meetings with the SU/club owners/promoters etc. in order to gain experience in dealing and negotiating with various people and organisations. The vice president will aim to run for president the year after and will be “trained” by the President in order to acquire the necessary skills and get to know all the organisations that Warwick Bass works with.
In order to run for vice president you should be passionate about Warwick Bass and have the desire to gain experience in organising club nights, dealing with DJs and negotiating with people from the entertainment industry. Since the aim of this position is to run for president the year after next, it is required that you will be at university for another year.
The social sec’s main job is to organise regular socials and make sure all members are having fun! He/she is responsible for creating a feeling of community and interaction in the society. He/she has to ensure that new members feel welcome to the society and get to know everyone as quickly as possible. Above all else, the social sec’s job is to make sure everyone is having fun and gets drunk regularly
To be social sec you need to be an outgoing and fun-loving person. You will need to come up with new and exciting ideas for socials and get everyone excited about them. A strong tolerance to drink is probably also of advantage, but not a requirement.
The treasurer handles all the finances of the society. He/she is responsible for coming up with the cost calculations for the society’s events and making sure the society’s spending makes sense and is budgeted accordingly. The treasurer guards the money-box with his/her life and controls payments to external organisations as well as payments to Warwick Bass by other societies or organisations. The Treasurer must keep an up to date account of all society finances and will set budgetary limits on all society activities.
You have to be good with numbers and ideally have a background in finance to become treasurer (although this is not a requirement to apply).
The Events Manager is in charge of organising and running all Warwick Bass events. Generally, he or she is expected to run 2 trips per term to the bigger nightclubs such as Fabric and HMV Institute, and 2-3 BASSMENT nights per term. The Events manager is in charge of booking venues, arranging the transportation and negotiating with venue managers. He/she will be working in close interaction with the DJ/Equipment Manager and venue management. It is expected that the events manager plans events at least a month in advance, making sure that the Promotions Manager and design exec complete their tasks in time. To run for events manager you need good organisational and leadership skills. You have to be able to find a good agreement between parties with conflicts of interest and take charge of running the events.
DJ and Equipment Manager
The DJ and Equipment manager is in charge of the society equipment, organising all DJ lessons and maintaining relationships with society DJ’s. For DJ Lessons he or she should book all rooms well in advance and arrange for specific teachers to teach at each lesson. The teachers need to be informed of exactly how to set up the equipment and have a good understanding of what to teach to new students; each teacher should also be reminded of the lesson shortly beforehand and it is the DJ/Equipment Managers responsibility that all teachers attend. The DJ and Equipment Manager should also be in close contact with all society DJs and local clubs, keeping in mind their music collection and who would be suitable for each night. It is his or her responsibility to ensure that all DJs are confirmed to attend each event after the line-up has been agreed upon by the exec. The DJ and Equipment manager is also in charge of new equipment purchases and maintaining all existing society equipment. During society events, the equipment manager is also the man in the field and the first person to contact in case of any problems. Should anything go wrong during the event (like bad sound quality or broken equipment), it is his/her responsibility to make sure things get sorted out. It is expected that the DJ and Equipment Manager will have good organisational and communication skills, while having a decent knowledge of setting up DJ equipment and sound systems. Knowing how to DJ is a bonus, but is not required to apply.
The promotions manager is in charge of all the promotion for the society and our events. This includes flyers, posters, online promotion, giving away free merchandise etc. The Promotions manager is also in charge of keeping the website and Facebook pages up to date alongside sending out weekly emails to the society members. He/she will get flyers and posters printed, organise promotion runs and oversee all other promo activities. The promotions manager represents Warwick Bass wherever he/she goes and always carries a batch of flyers ready to give out. To help with advertising on campus, all other exec members are expected to support the Promotions manager by handing out flyers and putting up posters. The Promotions manager may decide to hire a street team from the society to help with this if the need arises. As the promotions manager you need to be an outgoing person and also have good organisational skills. Some kind of marketing background would be of advantage but is not strictly required.
The designer does the artwork for posters, flyers, t-shirts and the website. He/she will be designing logos and cool images that go on all promotion material. This can be done by hand or on the computer, however all designs by hand have to be scanned in with high quality so they can be used.
To be the designer you should be passionate about art and enjoy creating your own artwork. Being able to use Photoshop or something similar would be an advantage, along with HTML for the website.
If no Designer is elected, this role must be fulfilled by the Promotions manager or another exec member who is selected by the president.
Back once again with the free night BASSment. At Robbins Well tonight, we’ve got DJs spinning a selection of dubstep, garage/2step, house, DnB, glitch, etc. so there’s bound to be something for all of you. With an amazing line up this one is set to be the best yet so head down at 9pm for FREE ENTRY, cheap drinks, BIG tunes and lots of bass. The night “ends” at 1am but we’ve got an afterparty lined up for everyone.
