We were extremely excited to have DJ EZ at #NIGHTBASS to play his first USA gig ever, and he delivered beyond anything we could have imagined. The club was packed and the vibes were through the roof! He was joined by AC SLATER, Trouble & Bass queen STAR EYES, and a special B2B set from BONES & PETEY CLICKS.
The powerful vocals of Jess Glynne in her newest single “Right Here” is a stunner in its own, premiering on MTV UK and ranking up over a million plays on soundcloud. It takes a lot to top a serious hit, but the mysterious Slinger has answered the call and delivered a low end monster fit for the club. Fans of Chris Lorenzo, Disclosure and Gorgon City will love this – listen below!
Vancouver’s emerging low-end specialist, Rook Milo, has been building out his catalog with smooth jams like his single, “Outland,” and his remix of Drake’s “The Language.” Adding to his repertoire, Rook Milo has teamed up with the local designer, MMVIII, for an EP, and “Bodyroll” serves as the first listen. It’s dark, deep, and emotive – just how we like it. Listen for yourself below and stay tuned for the rest of the EP.
This is magic. One of the best sets I’ve heard in a while, and I categorically dislike DJ sets. Biggups Mija. Skrillex is the man. Listen.
Last week, Treasure Fingers dropped a wobbly, club monster in the form of Honey Dip. While he reigned supreme for years at that top of the ‘nu-disco’ field, it appears he’s since disavowed his affiliation with the glazed genre and shifted efforts to making some manic house tracks, and we really couldn’t be any happier. Today, we’re premiering the Sluggers remix of said track. After gaining a bit of momentum with releases on OWSLA and Fools Gold, the Miami duo are quickly carving out a name for themselves. Enjoy their free download of Honey Dip below, and get hyped to hear more from these new kids on the block.
In celebration of dropping his Execution EP on Skrillex’s free release imprint, Nest, earlier this week, the future star, Champion, has given us a proper guest mix that would make his fellow UK brethren proud. Hailing from East London, this producer/DJ flexes his refined taste with an on point selection of the pumping, bassline-driven House that has been infiltrating America. With his stand out productions, DJ expertise, and new label, Formula Records, Champion is quickly gaining the trust of many around the world, and major players in the scene are taking notice.
Over the course of the last month, UK producer Hostage has given away a free track every week. As a consumer of dance music, that’s one hell of a great deal. We’ve been longstanding fans and supporters of Hostage for years, harking back to the golden era of banging bloghaus. He’s since shifted his focus to making tidy house cuts, all the while keeping faithful to his roots in bass music. Grab all four tracks below, and keep an eye out for the man because you never know when he’ll give away an EP’s worth of tunes away for free.
UK Bass/House frontrunner, Champion, has released his anticipated Execution EP today on Skrillex’s free release imprint, Nest, with two original tracks that feature an all new breed of bassline. You may have heard TEED play it at The Do Lab at Coachella, or possibly on BBC Radio 1, or maybe even in one of Four Tet’s recent sets, but however you listen to it make sure you’ve got enough low end. Download both √+ tunes below and keep an eye out on Wednesday for a brand new Guest Mix from Champion.
Happy Friday! To get your weekend started we finally have the next tape pack of live recordings from NIGHT BASS on June 12. This one featured a special b2b from AC Slater and Bart B More, as well as huge sets from RinseFM’s Royal-T, Fool’s Gold Canadian Meech, and our very own BONES. Listen to the 4-pack below and get your Friday thumping!
Don’t miss the next NIGHT BASS – this Thursday, July 3rd featuring DJ EZ, Star Eyes, AC Slater, Petey Clicks and BONES!
LA’s rising bass music specialist, GRiDWORK, has been brewing in the underground with his intricate, eclectic productions and stand out live sets. After seeing him open for OPIUO at a Do LaB event a couple weeks back, I was eager to hear some fresh tunes, and sure enough, he has delivered this remix of Emoh Instead’s “Why Can’t You (Say So).” GRiDWORK has transformed the song into a groovy, glitch-hop number that will surely be played out at transformational festivals across the country. Catch GRiDWORK live with jOBOT as Continuum at the 5 Points Gathering on Mt. Baldy this 4th of July weekend.
