Bass Church (aka Church*) is the home for underground dance music and sound system culture in NOLA. Named one of the top 20 parties in America by DJ Mag, it is also New Orleans' original underground dubstep and bass music weekly and the longest running electronic dance music weekly in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast region. Founded in 2010, Church* took place every Sunday night at the legendary Dragon's Den. In 2017, Church* hit the road for The Missionary Tour and the event took place in cities all around America including New York City, Detroit, Denver, Atlanta, St Louis and more.
After 8 years on Sundays, and after bringing back it's original namesake, Bass Church* now takes place every Saturday night at Santos Bar (1135 Decatur) in the French Quarter.
Bass Church* features a wide spectrum of underground electronic dance music including bass music, dubstep, grime, drum & bass, jungle, uk garage, juke/footwork, trap, glitch hop and everything in between. It focuses on the underground cutting-edge, innovative and forward-thinking side of dance music. With it's sister party KOMPRESSION, Bass Church* also features house & techno in the 2nd room under the name Konfession.
With its origins rooted in dubstep and UK soundsystem culture and its forward-thinking approach to showcasing both the history and the future in the evolution of dance music, Bass Church* regularly hosts special guests from all over the world, often legends, pioneers, innovators and champions of their respective genres and areas of dance music -- such as Digital Mystikz (Mala & Coki), LTJ Bukem, Loefah, Hatcha, Youngsta, Roni Size, Kode9, Goth-Trad, Truth, Joe Nice, Doc Scott, Ivy Lab, EPROM, Jimmy Edgar, Machinedrum, Om Unit, Scuba, DJ Shiftee, Stanton Warriors, the Dirtybird crew (Justin Martin, Christian Martin, J.Phlip, Worthy) and many many MANY more!

Filthy, Brother Electric, Herb Jr (aka C-Lab) and Jaek plus Konfession resident Herb Christopher (KOMPRESSION co-founder).
