The growing bass house sub-genre seems to have a fresh new talent on its hands as HI-LO has come firing out the gates with a heavy first release, “Crank It Up.” With an almost big-room level energy, the track offers tribal rhythms that are matched with snarling, distorted synths that are supported by heavy low-end and a vocal sample to give it some character. A diverse crew of artists like Green Velvet, Diplo, Umek, Flux Pavilion, and more are already giving this jam some play time, so it’s bound to be heard on dance floors far and wide. Listen above and stay tuned for “Crank It Up” release on Mad Decent on June 25th.
As Mysteryland USA steadily approaches its Memorial Day Weekend date, they deliver the second installment of their Music of Mystery mix from one of Brooklyn’s finest, Sweater Beats. In true festival fashion, this bass music all-star keeps the vibes high on his hour-long mix of jams from the likes of Falcons, Phazz, Hudson Mohawke, Sinjin Hawke, Sweater Beats himself, and more. Enjoy the mix and catch Sweater Beats live on the Webster Hall Presents Girls + Boys Stage at Mysteryland USA on Sunday, May 24th.

Not too long ago, Mr. Duke Dumont produced out a reprise of his hit tune, “The Giver,” and I think it’s safe to say that it manifested nostalgia in those who kept the original on repeat. With its the strong vocals, it seemed like it was destined for some great remixes, and that turns out to be true, judging from this rendition from Australia’s Wave Racer. The mid-tempo bass music-centric producer has traded a four-on-the-floor groove for a low-end heavy, R&B-esque vibe with big drums, vocal edits, subtle synths, and more. Enjoy the Wave Racer gem above and stay tuned for its June 20th release.
Saint and UNIIQU3 might have a fair bit of geographical distance between them, but the two musicians are good buddies, having worked together in the past already. They came together to drop this smasher 2 days ago on Main Course, and here’s what the had to say:
“I was headed to LA for a show so I hit Saint up wanting to get in the studio together to work on some music,” UNIIQU3 says of the track’s genesis over email, “We made this song in one sitting. We came up with the vocals because it reflects the lifestyle. Being lit at a function. It’s a fun track. It’s every party go-er’s anthem. Parties should be judge free zones. You can get so lit to the point where nobody can’t tell you shit, and if they did who gives a fuck?”
“We really wanted to create something that paid homage to old school club music and our influences, as well as add our own little modern tinge to it,” Saint adds, “It came together very naturally, and it def shows in the track’s fun and carefree party nature.”

Our buds over at Dim Mak just hit 100k on Twitter and to show their appreciation they gave away one hell of a heater, grab it below!
“O.A.K.L.A.N.D.” is nod to Dim Mak newcomer Panic City‘s birthplace and home of the Hyphy movement. Having grown up with the influence of iconic Bay area artists like E-40, Keak Da Sneak, and Too Short, the sounds blazed their way into Panic City’s future hyphy productions. “O.A.K.L.A.N.D.” bridges the gap between the gritty, pounding rhythms of his roots and Panic’s penchant for piano driven classic house melodies and unpredictable drops.
Swept up in the bass house craze, Wax Motif & Gladiator got in the studio to make a beefed up version of Kid Ink & Dej Loaf’s hit “Be Real”. The outcome is a low end driven monster, teasing Dej Loaf’s vocal along a growling bassline and jackin lead. Originally planned to be a bootleg, Kid Ink’s camp loved the version so much it got picked up as an official remix, scheduled to drop at the end of this month on RCA. Listen below, and keep it locked for the release!
