Last month, we got an exclusive taste of Cosella from Thump via an interview and first-listen feature. Today, we’re proud to bring you the exclusive world premiere of the Canadian producer’s debut EP “In My Roots.” Released on Sleazy G, this three-track collection of is a welcome addition to any g-house catalogue. Each track delivers a powerful punch of that big bass Cosella has become known for, yet each brings a little something different to the table. Enjoy the “In My Roots” EP and keep a lookout for more from this up-and-comer in the near future.
2014 running out, and all we can look forward to is the new year – awaiting what new artists, albums, and tracks will emerge. Well, we’ve discovered a gem to keep your ear on. We present to you Foreign & Domestic, a mysterious new project driven by the G House and Ghetto-tech movements. We can’t say much about their identity, but we can tell you they are ready for 2015 with a barrage of new music – 9 originals and 4 remixes right off the bat. If the most anthemic of hip hop and the deeper depths of bass house were locked in a room, the resulting product would be this project. Their December mini mix showcases all 13 tracks, and you can download the Tiga ‘Bugatti’ and Diplo/Alvaro ’6th Gear’ remixes here too! Grab em below, and watch out for Foreign & Domestic as the new year unfolds…

option4 really is a man of the people. In the past 2 months, the Denver-based DJ/producer has churned out top remixes for Sammy Bananas on Fools Gold and Indian Summer on Sweat It Out – not to mention throwing his own festival Cloak & Dagger that erupted the ever-growing dance music scene in the mile high city. His next play? Give back to the fans by releasing a FREE original on local label Night Supply. “You’re ILL” samples everyones favorite verse from Lil B of the Pack, and keeps things ghetto tech rollin with jackin house appeal. Fans of HNNY, Sacha Robotti, or any of the Dirtybird camp will be all over this one… grab it below!
LA’s Ruff Hauser has been pushing the boundaries of bass music for over a decade now, and today he launches the debut release of his new Cats & Boots imprint with his Rotate Them Hips EP. His booty-tech monster was doing the rounds with DJs from the dirtybird and Anabatic camps before he assembled a top-shelf crew to remix the track that includes Mark Starr, Troy Kurtz, Roy Wilkins, Ghostea, and Perfect Driver. Having already been played on both BBC1 and Rinse FM prior to the release, there’s a fair bit of hype around the package, and we’re excited about the prospects of another rising music label for the West Coast. You can pick up the release now on Beatport.
Back in March, we threw one hell of a soiree with the Sweat It Out! crew in Miami during WMC. The takeaway included a most excellent hangover and an even stronger appreciation for what these Australians are doing to dance music. There’s no better example than Go Freek‘s We Can Ride release, which dropped today on the Sweat! imprint. There’s a mess of pads and bellowing bass blasts that dart around a pitched down vocal sample. They’ve dubbed it gutter tech, which more or less makes perfect sense. They also rounded up an A-team of support for remix duty, featuring mixes from Terace, Torren Foot, Craig Williams, and Dom Dolla, which are pretty damn great in their own right. You can pick up full package on Beatport.
Today, we have a special feature for the dirtybird-affiliated talent known as Worthy. He’s given us the premiere of his outstanding re-work of ODB’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” that brings a striking bass-heavy ghetto-tech sound to the classic tune. Additionally, we’ve conducted a quick Q&A to catch up with him about his forthcoming releases, this re-work, and his other future plans. Have a listen below and check out the Q&A after the jump.
We all remember that historic day, when “Crank Dat (Soulja Boi)” graced the airwaves for what seemed like an eternity. The dance, forever emblazoned in your memory from viral videos and constant air time, still strikes a nostalgic chord, though. So when White Noize & Nima G sample the hook and throw it over a crankin’ bassline with some dark techno synths, you can’t help but feel some type of way. So go find a backpack to nugget or go participate in some lunchtime shenanigans, because this track will take you backkk.
Hope everybody is enjoying their Sunday Funday! My Aussie homie Torren Foot recently dropped a free bootleg of Drake’s infamous anthem “Over” and it is more than worth the play. Torren is known for his ridiculously strong bass lines, and this one is no exception. No matter if you like Drake or not, the production on this club hitter is a no brainer. Grab it below and get on with ya bad self.
2014 should be a pretty exciting year for dirtybird OG, Worthy. With a full length album in his pocket (he’s currently looking for the right home for it), three to four months of free giveaways, and a pair of EPs in the works, it’d appear that Worthy has his production schedule on lock. His brand of Booty Bass has exploded alongside the dirtybird family as of late, and the big bassline sound doesn’t seem to be dissipating in the new year. Download “Get It” below and keep it locked on Worthy’s Soundcloud for more free tracks upcoming.
