THIS WEEK IN BASS – WEEK 47/48

Dope selections for week 46 with new releases by Untold, Policy, Sei A & many more. CIV042D Brassica - Temple Fortune EP - Civil Music - 19-11-2012 Four original tracks of summerly and straight forward bass music, taking clues from balearic house as well as brightest 80s pop. Very nice and pleasant music. Then we have two remixes, one by Om Unit, transforming the original track into a bass heavy downbeat affair, whereas UTTU‘s Capracara goes for a more dancefloor-akin approach. BH010 - DJ Funeral - RIP Tribute EP - Body High - 13-11-2012 Bass heavy future dance music, somewhere between heavily mutated drum‘n‘bass, broken UK Funky and Grime plus a fair portion Chicago Juke. Very good. TEC066 - Distance - Blue Meanie / Searching - Tectonic - 23-11-2012 Grim and fierce oldskool dubstep tracks, digging deep into the sub ground with their heavily distorted bass plows. Music which will create a tectonic tremor for sure. L2S089 - Totte - Nothing Can Keep Me - L2s Recordings - 26-11-2012 More future garage from the L2s massive. The title track here is definitely targeted at the peak time floor with its heavy bass patterns and no holds barred drum programming. The second track, on the other hand, is more of an early morning affair, containing soothing vocals and lots and lots of warm synth pads. HEK020i - Sei A - Seia A / Falty DL - Hemlock Recordings - 26-11-2012 Untold‘s Hemlock Recordings is celebrating it‘s 20th release with a compilation looking back at the label history as well as series of fresh and exclusive tracks - these two being the first. And, as always, it‘s quality which you can expect. Sei A is a peak time ready techno track for the darkest floors, FaltyDL goes for an experimental head-house approach. Recommended. HEK020iii - Joe - Joe/Randomer - Hemlock Recordings - 26-11-2012 More Hemlock-celebration tracks. This time we have one of those rare Joe tracks - and he does not disappoint. It‘s hard to pinpoint the genre here, but his combination of bass, house and a general weirdo quality is hard to surpass and as irresistible as always. Flip over and you get Randomer with one of his best tracks lately, a fairly low-fi leftfield technohouse hybrid. Winners both. HEK020ii - Guy Andrews - Guy Andrews / Untold - Hemlock Recordings - 26-11-2012 Next in the celebration series: leaving his known and loved bass music antics aside Guy Andrews brews up a mandatory deep techno cut which is more than berghain mainfloor ready. Head over to the b-side for label owner Untold‘s approach at afterhour dubtechno in it‘s most experimental form. Recommended. HEK020iv - Untold - Stop What You‘re Doing (Kowton Remix) - Hemlock Recordings - 26-11-2012 The original of Stop What You‘re Doing was one of the tracks which put Untold on the forefront of bass music producers and still sounds fresh today. Kowton pays tribute to this legendary track in his remix, transforming it into a clap-heavy slow motion grime track. Heavy. On the b-side is Nautiluss‘ interpretation of Untold‘s Breathe, going for a laid back early morning techno approach. Just as good. WNCL012 - Kevin McPhee - In Circles - WNCL Recordings - 26-11-2012 Four fresh tracks combining classic chicago house with contemporary bass music styles. Forward thinking to the max and still groovy as hell. One for the fans of Joy Orbison and the likes. BLACKESTDL001 - Raime - Quarter Turns Over A Living Line - Blackest Ever Black - 26-11-2012 Influenced by dubstep as well as experimental synthesizer music of the 70s, dubbiest techno and musique concrete this debut album by Blackest Ever Black label heads Raime is a dark monolith to behold. Dark and emotional slow motion bass music for the most melancholic hours. RH 120 LP - Policy - Everything Hits - Rush Hour - 26-11-2012 Long awaited debut album by Policy on Rush Hour - and it was worth the wait. This is dreamy post garage house music full of melancholic emotions as well as clever beat programming and blushingly beautiful sound design. Blissful and lush to the max. Very much recommended.
