Firepower Records to Celebrate 100th release with Shell Shock Legends Showcase at Las Palmas Hollywood, May 12th

Los Angeles (April 30th, 2015) In celebration of our 100th release, Firepower Records is throwing a party at Las Palmas Hollywood in Hollywood, California, on May 12th. With very special guests already confirmed, and PK Sound coming through with their mind melting sound system, the showcase is a testament to the strength of the Firepower Family and provides us a way to give back to all those who made our 100th release so monumental.

Since its humble inception in March of 2012 by Troy Beetles—otherwise known as Datsik—Firepower Records has evolved into a bass music behemoth, releasing heavyweight producers like Datsik, Protohype, Getter, Truth, Bear Grillz, Mayhem, Antiserum, Fox Stevenson, Must Die, Proper Villains, PhaseOne, Terravita, and Fei Fei, and featuring Hip Hop royalty like KRS-One and DJ Paul KOM of Three-6 Mafia. The Firepower Family currently claims forty-four artists and counting. On May 5th, the label will celebrate an impressive milestone: the 100th release! As a show of overwhelming support for this special achievement, some of dance music’s heaviest hitters have signed on by offering tracks exclusively for the Shell Shock Legends release. The tracklist reads like a bass music “best-of” list. If Dubstep had a fantasy league, this would be a winning line-up.

But Firepower is more than a disjointed and disconnected series of artists and tracks. We like to consider ourselves more of a Family and the Shell Shock Legends release more of a family reunion. Firepower Records is a label and an internationally respected dance music brand, but it would be nothing without the like-minded artists, friends, neighbors, and fans that hold it all together and keep it alive.

Join us as we celebrate our 100th release. We couldn’t have done it without you!
