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.
World-renowned turntable impresario, Klever, has put this infectiously feel-good summer anthem out on Main Course Media as their second release. You know that point in the night when it gets late and everyone is loose in the zone, when dancing gives way to a mass of bouncing and swaying? My favorite part of the night as well. Grab the free download after the jump. Discobelle just premiered Rinse FM’s Roska on the flip, which you can grab here as well, in all its signature future-bassy, grime-clappy goodness.
With a plethora of new genres emerging, London’s new bass scene can come off a little confusing. Many people don’t know what to think of it and some have already claimed the scene is old and stale. However, I firmly believe the critics are dead wrong.
Reason number one? Roska.
Roska has been at the forefront of the UK bass scene for years, producing hit after hit. With a trademark sound of hard-hitting, complex percussion, deep, dark bass, and just the right amount of funk to get you dancing dirty, it’s no wonder Roska has gained a massive, widespread following. Well, that following should be jumping for joy today because Roska’s newest EP, Error Code / Abrupt is the stuff of legends!
Don’t take my word for it though, pick up Roska’s new EP on Beatport today![Purchase Link]
UK bassheads Toddla T and Roska have recently collaborated on a new project called Toddska, and just released a two track EP that is serious, serious heat. Out on Toddla T’s new label Girls Music, the mashing of UK garage with that distinctive tribal swag is one of the more exciting sounds in a genre that is rapidly becoming redundant.
