This September, from the 25th to 27th, people from all over the world will congregate in Georgia’s beautiful Chattahoochee Hills to hear the best producers and DJs lay down the summer’s hottest sets that inevitably trail-blaze musical trends for the fall/winter season. The game’s biggest names throwing down the songs-you’ve-never-heard-before-but-now-can’t-turn-off in a no-holds-barred, party of the year funfest.
This year Your EDM is proud to announce our stage partnership with TomorrowWorld’s esteemed All Your Bass Are Belong To Us stage. That big, beautiful, sexy tent that’s always packed full of bassheads the world ’round bringing their go-hard every minute the festival gates are open.
All Your Bass Are Belong To Us History
In years past the stage is happy to boast these bass barons as part of their top-tier line up: Datsik, Bro Safari, Zomboy, Rusko, SNAILS, Savoy, Delta Heavy, and Figure to name a few. This year dubstep fans rejoice as some of their genre’s leading producers are seen in the headlining position to ensure nights of endless, face-melting mayhem: Flux Pavilion, Adventure Club, and Excision.
“How are you, gentlemen? All your base are belong to us.”
“All Your Bass Are Belong To Us” is a play on a broken English phrase found in the opening scene of the 1991 video game Zero Wing which became a popular internet meme. The quote is included in the European version of the game, which is where the mother of TomorrowWorld, Tomorrowland, began over a decade ago.
In late 2000, Kansas City computer programmer and part-time DJ Jeffrey Ray Roberts of the Gabber band The Laziest Men on Mars made a techno track entitled “Invasion of The Gabber Robots”, which remixed some of the Zero Wing video game music by Tatsuya Uemura with the voice-over phrase “All your base are belong to us.” Give it a listen.
On June 1, 2006, YouTube was taken down temporarily for maintenance. The phrase “ALL YOUR VIDEO ARE BELONG TO US” appeared below the YouTube logo as a placeholder while the site was down. Some users believed the site had been hacked, leading YouTube to add the message “No, we haven’t been hacked. Get a sense of humor.” [see Wikipedia for more]
Computer nerds, gamers, and lovers of the Gabber genre all immediately identify with and love the phrase. A subculture of people who also find solace in the blood-pumping power of TomorrowWorld’s bass stage.
We will be giving our readers and fans a behind-the-scenes look at the artists that will be playing the stage this year, in-depth coverage like you have never seen before of all of the madness that ensues, and some super fun social media contests and giveaways.
