On The Trail of Sub Bass

Photography & text by Flemming Bo Jensen

Every year thousands of ravers assemble under a highway overpass in Copenhagen. They are here to worship electronic beats organized by Ohoi! - Copenhagen’s original sound killers and bass pirates.

They call it ‘Bas Under Buen’ - Bass under the Arch. The event showcases Danish electronic artists with sub-bass as the common thread that threatens to awake the Kraken from the icy Nordic depths. The theme is music by the people for the people. The DJ is on street level with the crowd. There are no special lights. And everyone plays an equal amount of time. 

The Copenhagen event is a classic, but now it is just the opening. Now we travel to 3 other cities in Denmark, leaving behind a trail of low frequency induced mayhem.
