Harvard Bass says in life you must “Stay True”… to who you are. And in this case “Stay True” to the music you live and love and then release it on a label that has never wavered.
After slaving away in the studio this year, our friend and favorite Victor Hugo aka Harvard Bass is set to release his debut album STAY TRUE this Monday, November 25th. It was a no-brainer for him to choose Relief Records as it’s home, the Chicago-based label owned by techno legend Green Velvet (whom he has collaborated with on ‘Lazer Beams’, ‘Kickin It’, ‘Sinkhole’ and his forthcoming ‘Bucket Boys’).
Starting tonight in San Diego, Harvard Bass kicks off a series of parties to celebrate the album dropping next week. Each party is planned to have several of his friends and special guests play sets, which is making for some exciting lineups all weekend long. The best part – ALL PARTIES ARE FREE!

Last Thursday we spoke with our friends and LA transplants Prince Club and Harvard Bass about a little bit of everything. Harvard Bass (Victor) has recently just started his own record label, Bump City Records, and thankfully I was in the know about the PC x HB collab coming out on the new label, so I grabbed the lads for a chat and unsurprisingly it was full of laughs. Max of Prince Club was in the middle of getting tattooed, and the other half of the Canadian duo Zach came and chimed in midway through the talk.
Get in on the talk below, and be sure to chat with us over on Twitter with more artists and record labels every Thursday using the #AskGDD hashtag!

Coming off the massive release ‘Pari’ with Bart B More, the newly LA-settled Harvard Bass wastes no time in dropping a huge new EP teaser on us to start the weekend. The PLEX EP is forthcoming on Teenage Riot Records (headed by JFK of MSTRKRFT), and features the new original along with three incredibly eclectic versions provided by Ego Troopers, St. Mandrew and John Roman. Ringing true to his sound, the EP title track ‘Plex’ is a whirlwind of techno, driven by HB’s signature buzzing leads and stabbing kicks. The remixes, however, make it ‘something for everyone’ – from Ego Troopers’ dutch house, the chainsaw electro of St. Mandrew and the deeper bass and staggering tribal sounds of John Roman. Check it out below, and grab it on July 31st.
This one is for all the GDD love!
