THIS WEEK IN BASS – WEEK 35

THIS WEEK IN BASS – WEEK 35
Superdefekt’s Roundup of the last weeks entries in Dubstep, Techno, Halfstep, Nustep, UK Garage & House. Selection for the week 35 with releases by Lowtec, Om Unit, Kryptic Minds, Alex Smoke, Mark Pritchard and more. MATH12 - Lowtec - Port Carbon - BRAiNMATH Ramp Recording‘s BRAiNMATH sub label is going big with this five track EP by Leipzig‘s Lowtec.  Techno music of the very first order, minimal in a good way and hypnotic as shit. Big one. META012 - Om Unit - Sleepwalkers / Grey Skies Over Chicago - Metalheadz Release of the week, bar none. Om Unit drops his usual downbeat (respectively juke) antics for a full three tracks run of proper  drum‘n‘bass on Goldie‘s Metalheadz. Rinse it out! NMN008D - Perverse - Bolontiku - New Moon Recordings Proper darkness in a halfstep riddim. May appeal to dread purists and future headz alike.  Class A next level dubstep business. NHNH126 - DJ Spookz - Bring The Beat Back - No Hats No Hoods Cyber Carnival business of the very first order. Positioning themselves somewhere in between lazer sharp future grime riddims and steel drum loving UK Funky rhythms.  Either way no prisoners are taken here as this is 100 percent party music. ETCHT001 - Consequence - Etcht EP 001 - Etcht Records Drum‘n‘bass of the more calm kind, taking it‘s lessons from ambient and electronica. Beautiful and mysterious listening music for breakbeat lovers. SUBALT001 - Mentha & Murk - 1992 - Subaltern Records Slowly grinding bass heavy dubstep of the purist kind here.  For the lovers of earth shaking sub frequencies. SVN008 - Def Inc - Acid Rock / Stripped Down Funk - 777 UK Funky inspired electro tunes with a distant shade of big beat in their sound design.  Also, using electric guitar loops, the term rock is taken a bit too serious for my likening here. OSMUK033 - Kryptic Minds & Sleeper - Axis Shift - Osiris Music UK Next Level dubstep of the darkest kind, heavily influenced by dub techno.  Imagine the Berghain on heavy tranquilizers in a rough and rugged dystopian future. GHM005 - Zoltan - Curtains EP - Granholme Next level cut-up electro on the title track, the kind of tune the Nightslugs crew could drop.  Same goes for the high speed arpeggios of the closing track, Li-Polymer.  Only dropout is Plictis, a more conventional techno track. Apart from that: top stuff. LTECH005 - Mark Fell - n-Dimensional Analysis - Liberation Technologies Leaving his Sensate Focus moniker aside Mark Fell also drops all deep house antics for a more techno music akin approach, while still maintaining his proven cut up techniques.  Heady dancefloor music for academics. I like. L2S101 - Tuff Culture - Voices Of Culture - L2s Recordings Big room breakbeat tunes full of fat synth pads and heavy breakdowns. No subtleties but big emotions. RS1312D - Alex Smoke - Dust - R&S Records Somnambulistic latenight techno tunes by Alex Smoke on his R&S debut, crawling into your ear like a hypnotic snake. Plus you get an ace Tessela remix, rinsing it out hard as nails in a industrial bass music fashion with shades of drum‘n‘bass. Proper next level stuff, highly recommended. HypeLTDDig012 - Alex Jones - Haggerston EP - Hypercolour Hypercolour label boss Alex Jones convinces on his own imprint with these three tracks of bass music infused techno house. Especially the hypnotic groove of the Carl Craig sampling SMP is worth a mention. TRIANGLE20D - Forest Swords - Engravings - TRI ANGLE Beautiful home listening album, drenching you in intoxicating melancholy like a glass of Laudanum.  Think Burial filtered through chillwave and witch house and spiced up with a proper dose of ambient and mutated psych folk and you are only halfway there. Brilliant. WAP349DA - Mark Pritchard - 1234 feat. Ragga Twins - Warp Records Serving as a teaser for Mark Pritchard‘s upcoming EP this track of dancehall infused rave step featuring the legendary Ragga Twins on vocals is, of course, brilliant. UR055 - M. Geddes Gengras - Collected Works Vol. 1 - The Moog Years - Umor-Rex Phenomenal collection of spiritual synth symphonies produced mainly oh the Moog Rogue and MG-1 synths between 2008 and 2011. Soothing to the ears this is kaleidoscopic ambient psychedelica as good as it can get.  Just beautiful.   (Written and contributed by Superdefekt) About: Superdefekt aka sdfkt. aka Tim Lorenz (co)hostes the famous MFOC (sunday) nights at Hamburgs finest micro club “Golden Pudel”.
