LazerCrunk is a club night that (normally) takes place the first thursday of every month at the Brillobox, in Pittsburgh, PA.

The idea of the night is to mix up fun, cutting edge post-genre dance music: electro crunk, new rave, street bass, indie dance, b-more bashment, robot rock, toxic dancehall, soul refixes, party mashup sounds, etc.

Cosmic Revenge bio

Some artists devote themselves to a niche style, while others craft
their work in all sorts of different avenues as the result of a broad range of influence. Bay Area producer and multi instrumentalist Cosmic Revenge falls into the latter category, as his work is hard to pin down, but boldly embarks on a mission to further the ever mutating sounds of bass and sound system culture. Before donning his current moniker, his early productions were primarily hip hop and downtempo beats influenced by DJ Shadow, Masta Ace, Portishead, Leftfield, Air, and Mobb Deep. Around 2009 he fell in love with the grooves and heavy bass of UK Garage and 2 step, citing El-B’s “The Roots of El-B” as a big turning point for his productions. This new found passion for 2 step earned him a release on Whistla’s L2S Recordings, the Psychic EP. He sought to mix his 2 step influence with his chopped up sample style and vocal edits on the much praised Rnb/talkbox jam “Late Nights” which earned him a release on Kursed and later a 12″ on Glasgow’s Fortified Audio and plays by Bok Bok and Jackmaster. Seeking to make a throwback to his love for west coast hip hop and g-funk, his 808 jam “Mind Eraser” made it onto Distal and Mite’s Embassy Recordings out of Atlanta. Fresh off releasing a single out on Car Crash Set and a remix for Lucid on the newly hyped Pelican Fly label out of Belgium, and forthcoming singles on Freshmore and Frite Nite, Cosmic Revenge has no intention on slowing down his hustle for pushing sound systems to the limit while retaining melody and class.
