THIS WEEK IN BASS – WEEK 3

Superdefekt's Roundup of the last weeks entries in Dubstep, Halfstep, Nustep & UK Garage Nice selection for week 3 with new releases by Ben UFO, Doc Martin, Hypercolour, Night Slugs & more. NSAS002 - Various - Night Slugs Allstars Volume 2 - Night Slugs - 28-01-2013 Tremendous compilation of known as well as unreleased material from the Night Slugs label. For the most part it‘s drum centric bass music that you get here, dancefloor ready techno, house and miami bass abstractions which, even though definitely produced to rock, tickle your mind as well with their clever arrangements and sound ideas. Nevertheless, in the end it is those productions, which leave the established Night Slugs path the most, that satisfy best. Take for example Kingdom‘s lush slomo breakbeat tune Bank Head or L-Vis 1990‘s deep house track bass hybrid Lost In Love. FABRIC134D - Ben UFO - FABRICLIVE 67 - Fabric Worldwide - 21-01-2013 After his mix for Rinse Ben UFO, together with Pearson Sound and Pangaea label owner of Hessle Audio, once again proves that he is one of the best DJs in the world of dance music nowadays. And this DJ mix also shows that he has left his roots in dubstep, from where he started, far behind. Between tracks from Mixmup to Gesloten Circle, from K. Hand to Shackleton, Larry Heard or Blawan Ben UFO proves, that he not only has an excellent eclectic taste in music but also some technical DJ skills which are beyond awesome. One of the best Fabric Mixes so far and highly recommended. FLY009 - Funky Stepz - Backlog EP - Forever Live Young (F.L.Y) - 21-01-2013 Nine tracks of british funky bass music in its truest sense. Percussion centric and cheerful this is dancefloor music in purest form. Destined to make your body move. MINDSET013 - Biome - Spawned - Mindset Records - 21-01-2013 Three facets of post dubstep on one plate. Starting off with the deep techno bass track Spawned via the dark, Reese Bass filled breakbeats of Driveway we end with Conscience, a moody, nearly ambient halfstep affair, showing what is possible in the multifaceted world of bass. HAR137 - Luthor - Hippocampus EP - Haunted Audio Recordings - 24-01-2013 Stomping no nonsense bass music dancefloor tracks of the darker kind with thick roots in techno. The clever rhythms of Laced as well as the atmospheric techy 2step aesthetics of the title track Hippocampus are the tunes which convince most. SDR020 - Evan Iff - Sweet babe - Something Different Records - 14-01-2013 Beautifully swinging up to date deephouse in four variations. The original track is already a classy affair, but it‘s the soft gliding atmospheres of Malin Genie‘s remix which convince most. Matches‘ remix centers more around the bass groove and is welcome as well. And the dub of Iff‘s original track is exactly what is written on the tin. All in all a more than satisfying release. SLS001 - Rob Mello / Doc Martin - Sublevel Sampler 1 - Sublevel Music - 14-01-2013 A groovy affair, filter house affine on one side, sample centric on the other. Perfect mix material for sure. Classic house, as can be expected from Rob Mello. HYPEDIGCD03 - Various Artist - Hypercolour Patterns Vol. 3 - Hypercolour - 14-01-2013 Packed compilation showing off the many faces of house music the Hypercolour label is known and loevd for. Ranging from classic tracks rooted in the tradition of New York, Chicago or Detroit to Maya Jane Coles‘ bass music crossover, Mosca‘s Speed garage 2.0 or Roman Flügel‘s atmospheric Fat Controller remix here is something or everyone without getting lost in arbitrariness. Definitive highlights of the compilation are those two tracks by Manchester madman Tom Demac, one crossing swinging drums patterns with R‘nB, the other techno enriched house with deepest drum‘n‘bass sub basses - a real dancefloor monster.
