Bass Coast residents Michael Red and Mandai will be the stewards of Low Frequency.
This bad gyal has been a long-time staple in Vancouver’s underground bass scene for over a decade. She started out by spending countless hours digging elbow-deep in crates of 45s in Canada, the US and Jamaica. Her finely curated sets landed her behind the decks at legendary events and firmly solidified her as a member of Vancouver’s notorious LIGHTA! crew. She is well-known for her legendary mixes, some being all-vinyl releases, her true love. Blending reggae/dancehall with bass/rap/RnB/grime, her musical repertoire is expansive and fresh. She regularly performs at Bass Coast, Shambhala and her family-run festival The Field. She rocked the Thunder Stage at LIB and made ripples at the Moon Stage at the Oregon Eclipse when she covered for Om Unit. She has opened for well-known artists in both the reggae/dancehall and international underground music scenes and can be found behind the decks at underground parties spanning the west coast and several other major musical hubs. In 2012 she gave birth to Lighta’s youngest little member. bup!bup!
