THIS WEEK IN BASS – WEEK 49
Superdefekt aka sdfkt. aka Tim Lorenz (co)hostes the famous MFOC (sunday) nights at Hamburgs finest micro club “Golden Pudel”. Clubbing since 1987 as well as Djing since 1993 he has a knowledge of about 20 years of all kinds of electronic music with a special interest in all things breakbeat, be it electro, electronica, drum’n'bass, dubstep or Bass Music.
Getting deeper with each release. With this newest offering on his own Futureboogie imprint Mr. Bashmore provides us with two house tracks which are as charming and nimbly as they are epic. Vocal-tune Ensnare is the more preacher like one of the duo whereas Well Wishers is like the perfect companion for a mild summer night. Tip.
Three rhythm-laden groove bombs courtesy of George FitzGerald. Shackled -already known from Scuba‘s K7 Mix-CD - is a balearic killer track, Friends In High Places with its trance inducing ever-shifting chord sequence a longing latenight tune. But best of the bunch has to be Feel Like, an endlessly building bass music / vocal house bastard par excellence. All in all: Bass house music by one of the best.
Deepest atmospheric dubstep in a purist way on I Remain, where hypnotically ticking melody sequences meet rhythm reverberations stretched to infinity. Noboru keeps the mythical atmosphere of the former track, but packs it in a nearly beatless ambient gown where only the deep sub bass shows some movement, everything else seems to be freezed in time.
The two sides of Jack Dixon ( and Rick Grant, not to be forgotten): Muted is a charming and relaxed swinging future garage tune, Running Man, on the other side, a bit more directed at the peak time dancefloor. Last but not least we have our man Kevin McPhee, who transcends Running Man in a latenight future R‘n‘B affair. Nice one.
Proper UK Funky tunes, perfectly fitted for Roska‘s Kicks & Snares Label. Tracks consisting of not much more than exactly that, kicks, snare, bleeps, some deep deep sub bass and hypnotic percussion sequences, repetitively arranged for trance inducing effect. In other words: three functional dancefloor tools.
Simon/off combines ultra fast percussion patterns with post dubsteppy bass lines, some UK Funky flavors and technoid synth chords, thus producing three tracks which are as futuristically dreamy as they are body moving. Proper dancefloor stuff for the advanced dancers.
Vocals reminiscent of british indie music (somewhere between Radiohead and Coldplay) meet epic chord progressions and bass music based rhythm work making up for a interesting mixture that probably isn‘t everyone‘s cup of tea.
Once again Dro Carey proves to be an exceptional artist. Seven tracks between futuristic R‘n‘B, contemporary bass house music, uk garage, chicagoan juke mutations - and there‘s even a little bit of jazz fiddled in. And I am not describing different tracks here, those genres are mixed together to provide a melange extraordinaire - not for the lighthearted, mind you.
Exceptional debut album by texas based UK garage aficionado VVV. Between twelve tunes he provides us with a ride through UK bass music‘s musical history, be it 2step, speed garage, proper deep house or burialesque post dubstep movements (there is even a scent of early british electronica). Still these tracks aren‘t lifeless copies, but filled with VVV‘s distinct own musical character.
