As a music marketing team, our staff is passionate about getting out of the office and going to shows. We recently sat down with coworkers who could attend a company outing to the Night Bass show at Sound LA. Our team had glowing reviews, and after hearing about the night ourselves, we knew we had to tell our clients about this show! So welcome to the Night Bass Sound LA show review! This review will cover everything from the venue to the lineup and after-parties.
Sound LA and Night Bass
Sound LA is a Hollywood nightlife staple. The club is centrally located on Las Palmas and has a massive dance floor in the middle of everything. There’s also an incredible amount of rigging that allows speakers and lights to change from show to show. These cutting-edge special effects and welcoming environment set the environment apart from other nightclubs. Sound even has a back patio if you want to get away from the music for a second. But for our team, the real draw was the music.
AC Slater and Night Bass Records brought back the bi-monthly Thursday bass house show at Sound LA. This August, Night Bass unveiled a diverse lineup! Founder and artist AC Slater opened the night with a UK garage set, followed by a long-time veteran Petey Clicks b2b SHDWS set. Both these artists have recent releases, and fans in the crowd were already singing along. Then there was the headliner who performed his US debut: NuBass! While the released lineup was crazy, the special guests piqued fans’ interest! The crowd was lucky enough to experience long-time dubstep pioneer, Kill The Noise perform a bass house set with Night Bass’ label boss, AC Slater.
We recommend getting to your shows early. Popular venues like this tend to fill up, and we saw people missing shows and waiting in line throughout the evening. Luckily Sound knows what they’re doing, so the busy crowds are well managed, and multiple bars make it easy to get drinks or fun street-inspired snacks like pizza by the slice. In between sets, the place to be is the back left outside bar area. Here you can get some reprieve from the crowd while also checking out merch and grabbing a quick drink. The best part about this area is that it’s where you have the best chance of running into artists! This past Thursday, we had the pleasure of running into the likes of Hans Glader, Kendoll, Bijou, and Kill The Noise, to name just a few.

AC Slater has a long history of promoting great shows through Night Bass, and they are equally skilled on stage. His set had a distinct UK garage sound that we all love. This opening set the tone for the night’s rest with upbeat bangers and unique remixes. The next set of the night featured an electric back-to-back between Petey Clicks and SHDWS. Petey kept the groove moving while SHDWS added in the deep and dark basslines of some of his heavy hitters like “Vixen” and “Es Ami.” This B2B was the point people started to rush the stages and let loose! Once it was time for NuBass, the dance floor was alive with anticipation for this debut US set. NuBass did not disappoint! The energy flowed on the dancefloor with some of the crowd favorites like “The Night” and “Knock Knock.”
