The “Sound Tank's” visit to Miami will be a kind of return to its roots. This, after all, is where the Miami Bass genre was invented -- a genre whose name makes it clear what plays the biggest role in the songs: pumping bass. Hip-hop is combined with rapid, electronic beats. Bass Mekanik is one of the idols of this musical genre, who, with his more than 20 albums, has played a large role in shaping Miami Bass. In recent years, Bass Mekanik has become a rare sight on stage, making it even more exciting that Nik Nowak has convinced him to make a guest appearance at Gramps.
But with his performance, Nik Nowak isn’t merely providing an unobstructed view of his art. During an Art Talk, he will be speaking with host Andreas Tölke at the Sennheiser lounge at the Art Basel venue about his performance in Gramps, his approach to art and his vision for the audio of tomorrow. The Jury of the Future Audio Artist Program will also reveal who will follow in Nik Nowak’s footsteps. The three selected artists will be able to present their works of art at the various Art Basel shows. Just as Nik Nowak is currently doing with his “Sound Tank” at Art Basel Miami Beach.
Here are the performance details:
