Closed doors in: Late '80s
Famous for: Serving as the epicenter for the Miami bass scene
In South Florida, local clubs Pac-Jam and Bass Station contributed to the flourishing Miami bass scene, which incorporated big booty bass sounds with dirty rap cuts. Memorable acts like the cacophonic group Dynamix II, female MC Dimples Tee, and in-house producer Eric Griffin, contributed to the rise and indelible influence the clubs would have on hip-hop. Bass Station also served as an independent music label, where rap hits were recorded like Dimples Tee's "Jealous Fella's," and Dynamix II's "Just Give the D.J. a Break." Even though both clubs faltered in the late '80s, they were an instrumental force in West Coast hip-hop.
