By Laurie Charles Crank up the bass and party like you're smack in the heart of the Caribbean at Island Bass Saturdays at PRL Euro Lounge. The monthly fête is a "fusion and celebration of the global bass movement" where DJs Juan Luv, Jared Cole, Mello T, and surprise guests spin serious hits of moombahton, zouk bass, kuduro, and other uhntz-uhntz vibes from the islands. "It's pretty much the whole global bass movement and keeping it alive," explains DJ Juan Luv, the man behind the bash. "We strongly believe in moombahton and the whole global bass theme," he admits. "Jared Cole, Happy Colors, and myself, we contemplated doing a moombah party, but we needed to marry other concepts into it. So we brought in Mello T who has a calypso mixing style." "PRL opened its doors and said we could do whatever we want there. We also thought it was a great location because of the Caribbean influence in the area." And long behold, Island Bass was born. The music of the night ranges from soca and dancehall to Cumbia and moombahton, which is like sped up reggaeton with a slower beat than house, but a quicker pace than dubstep. Although the sounds are different, they are all connected by the same theme: "That Caribbean feel."
