Subsuelo Presents Los Tres Marks

LA-based global bass collective Subsuelo has hosted a number of great parties at the Bootleg Theatre (formerly the Bootleg Bar) this past year on a sporadic basis. They returned there last week for “Subsuelo Presents Los Tres Marks.”

The event brought together three equally-talented guys named Mark to the same stage: Mark de Clive-Lowe (Tru Thoughts), Nu-Mark (Jurassic Five), and Money Mark (The Beastie Boys).

de Clive-Lowe opened the night of Marks with some keyboard and drum sampling work followed by Nu-Mark who spun a great set and performed his infamous toy set where he uses a number of children’s toys to perform music, samples, etc. There’s footage of it about halfway through the video above.

Finally, Money Mark joined the two onstage for a once-in-a-lifetime-you-had-to-be-there-to-feel-it-all live jam/collaboration to end the night.

These parties are a welcome change from their regular monthly parties, which, don’t get me wrong, are still lots of fun. However, the capacity at their regular venue is probably 1/20th in comparison which doesn’t leave much elbow room on the dance floor.
