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 bass 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 bass 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.
