PopOff! #16 Ain’t Nothin’ But A Bass Thing, Bay-B

PopOff! is an “anything goes” musical show hosted by Bay Area DJ Bear. Sometimes it’s a theme, sometimes it’s a big ol’ birthday shout out tribute show to a specific artist(s). Shows occur on Mondays with the occasional Thursday Bonus Beats. Every episode is a unique sonic road trip through the multitudes of genres, eras, and musicians in recorded music. So if you have an open mind for musical exploration beyond mainstream radio programming climb into the PopOff! Bubble and let’s get to it!!

On the final part of my 4 part series exploring the bass in popular music we get beat heavy in the 90s and beyond with hip-hop, apathetic with grunge, maybe a little something for the black eye-liner crowd, and a bass heavy remix that turned a female alternative cult music star into a gay icon.
