Veniel created Bass Culture in 1997 out of his frustration with the Paris scene. The commercial side of French touch was taking over the city's clubs and he was "missing the darker and dubbier side of house, acid house, and deeper techno." Intent on bringing variety and depth back to Paris’ nightlife, he invited the raw and original sounds of artists who had caught his attention on his travels to play with him at Bass Culture. Terry Francis, Kenny Hawkes, Doc Martin, and Josh Wink all became staple guests at the night for the first 10 years of the parties existence.
20 years on and Bass Culture is still standing strong. More recent guests like Mr G, Sonja Moonear, Carl Craig, Daniel Bell, Octave One, Praslea, Ryan Elliot, Seth Troxler.
