Bite This! Block Party: Jauz, Ghastly, and More at the Brooklyn Mirage

This past weekend, JAUZ and friends took NYC off the deep end at the first-ever ‘Bite This! Block Party‘ on August 8th at the Brooklyn Mirage.

The talented artists brought their eclectic sounds to the Big Apple, playing sets filled with drum-and-bass, dubstep, bass house, and even a little old school pop punk.

The Mirage, known for having huge indoor and outdoor spaces, was an all-around perfect venue. Aside from the music, fans were treated to creative visuals, a full-service food court area, and even free ponchos when rain started to fall.

The event went through well even in light of the ongoing pandemic, with lots of open spaces, and areas for people to take a break from dancing.

Brooklyn-based Sir Roscoe, as well as Rankz and Trickshaw, were some of the first acts to get the event started, and definitely got the crowds moving. Sir Roscoe and Trickshaw both brought big energy to the outdoor stage, despite some rain showers.

Sir Roscoe had the honor of opening the event at the outdoor stage, putting his vibey house sounds on full display.

Rankz opened in the indoor space, lighting things up with a sick bass-heavy set, and getting fans hyped up and ready to keep moving for the night. Heyz, originally from North Carolina, continued with the high energy, dropping non-stop bangers.

LA-based Moore Kismet and Synymata, who is originally from Milwaukee, kept the indoor space bumping later into the night, with wicked drops and synthy goodness.

Ruvlo closed things out indoors, playing at the same time Jauz did at the outdoor stage, but bringing his unique sound to his crowd.

At the outdoor stage, Murci played just before Ghastly and Jauz, treating fans to a very groovy set.

As expected, Ghastly threw down, mixing things up with heavy dubstep and a sick remix of the pop punk classic “If It Means a Lot to You” by A Day to Remember.

By the end of Ghastly’s eclectic set, fans were definitely ready for an all-star finish from Jauz. Covering a lot of ground, Jauz played for over an hour and half, taking fans on an awesome musical journey.

The San Francisco-native threw in everything from bass and dub, to alt rock bangers like “Take Me Out” by Franz Ferdinand, and even house classics like Robyn’s “Show Me Love”.

Jauz took time to thank fans for coming out to support the event, especially in light of the pandemic. It was definitely a standout moment during his set.

Fans definitely felt the love, to say the least, and by the end of the night knew for sure that Jauz sure does know how to throw an epic block party and showcase buzzing talent via the humble collective Bite This! who are celebrating their centennial release.
