Celebrating their eighth release today, the relatively new Main Course label has firmly established themselves as one of the brightest imprints we’ve seen this year. Label boss Neoteric teams up with Australian heavy hitter Wax Motif with a seriously pounding track in Das Machines. The package also comes with a bit shorter, slightly more ‘epic’ dub that’s just as mighty. Both are available for free download, however, Main Course wants to feed their artists as well, so you also have option to support them on Beatport & iTunes if you feel up for it. For those of you in Australia, fellow Main Course label boss Astronomar is gearing up to start his tour Down Under in just a few days. More info + music video after the jump.

The LA sunshine must be doing AC Slater a world of good. The NYC Heavy Bass Champion has been residing on the West Coast for a nice stint and he’s been pumping out the tunes. Following up his Return Of The Underground EP that came out last month on T&B, he’s giving away another free track that tugs on the nostalgic warehouse heartstrings while also playing up the ever popular house chords. Grab the download below.

This mix is fly.  Fans of Disclosure, Breach, and all things that pop to bassy, sexy house music should dig this mix by the duo consisting of Foamo and RackNRuin.  Right after you catch our very own BONES on the HARD Stage, stay put and see Gorgon City perform on the same stage right after at HARD Summer 2013 on Sunday, August 4.

On deck for Kastle‘s on-point Symbols Recordings is a 4-track EP from 20 year old video game enthusiast and bass music prodigy, Lindsay Lowend. This young DC producer blends his interests in gaming and technology with a seemingly inherent feel for building depth and vibe to his music, a rare quality found in such green talent. Already picking up support from some big guns around the scene, I’d expect the Wind Fish EP to make some large waves toward the end of this summer. Available August 6th. √+

I’m currently 3 weeks into the course material with Point Blank Online. This week’s lesson was all about bass & midi effects. Comparing the material this week to the previous two, there was a major difference. After two weeks of going over instruments, plug-ins, and effects in Abelton live we finally began to focus our attention on music theory. Although the main purpose of this course is to teach Ableton as a production tool, music theory must be incorporated to make any of these examples come to life.

Since the inception of our site over four years ago, UK producer Foamo has maintained a spot atop our list of favorites due to his steadily maturing sound. He’s set to release a banging new EP that comes out next week on the 17th backed by the Rinse camp. The title track Release Me will surely be doing the rounds in clubs this summer due to the knocking bass and silky vocals of Lotti. Clearly drawing from his recent work on his Gorgon City project, the future of dance music looks bright with artists like Foamo pushing the envelope and blurring the boundaries of genres.

“I want you to all smell a dubplate because they smell really good. You might never get to smell one ever again…”

Vivian Host, aka Star Eyes hands me a dusty disc, an old DnB record from Renegade Hardware. I smell it and have to admit, it smells perfect. Like old musty books but better, because it’s music. On the bed sits Jess Gentile, better known as Jubilee. We’re chillin’ in the infamous 181 spot in Brooklyn, Vivian’s current residence, while our lovely photographer, Kaitlin Parry of Shoot People, sets up for this Gotta Dance Dirty exclusive look into the lives and music of two of the best bass DJs and producers around.

Seductive, funky, pounding; Kill Paris has released an EP of futuristic bass with a touch of french (and plenty of remixes).  Out now on OWSLA, its kind of like  digging through your parents’ Earth, Wind & Fire records with Skrillex and Koan Sound, in the future.  Two free downloads and the full EP stream here.
