Hostage – In The Face Mix #009

Scottish bass maestro Hostage provides us with an exclusive mix of, well, exclusives! On a slightly different, more rave inspired tip than his regular monthly mixes, this glides nicely between the bassier end of house, bassline & techno and even ends with an old skool classic from Krome & Time. No tracklist so if you want to know the tunes you’ll have to ask the man himself. You can catch Hostage headlining In The Face in Brighton on November 22nd.

Deadbeat – What I Need EP

In The Face resident and newest Crew member Deadbeat drops one of the biggest bassline tunes of the year, topping the Juno charts for weeks: we are proud to have him as one of our roster of artists/DJ’s. This tune effortlessly blends garage and bassline, with a seriously catchy vocal hook over the rumbling bass, he certainly does have what we want. Remixes from Chip Butty label boss Dr Cryptic (who makes it slightly grittier) and Mr Dubz (turns it into a 4×4 stomper), among others, makes this EP an essential purchase for us at In The Face.

In The Face – Fri Nov 22nd

Propa excited to have Hostage on board for this one and playing the more bassline/rave end of his endeavours no less! Also hyped to be showcasing the sounds of K-Orse & Basshound and Dave Shades, plus there’s those infamous sheffield all-stars and support from local boy Skepon. Then for those who like it a bit harder Room2 sees a tag-team unlike any other as Irish lads Act Normal link up with the Pi-Eyed crew from Glasgow. Expect them to assemble transformer style into a huge, rampaging, celtic robot once they locate all the energon cubes buckfast. Man, this is gonna get messy…

Lenkemz – Can’t See U EP

The opener of this EP starts out as a fairly standard grime affair, with some decent bars from Brummie rapper Slick Don over the top of a pounding bass rhythm, though it’s the next part of the tune where we really see Lenkemz productions step up a notch, signified by Slicks appropriate “Yo Lenkemz, run that”. Closer Came Here 2 Beat is our other favourite track, a rolling bassline number, making this a solid release overall. Out now and topping the Juno Charts!

K-Orse & Bass Hound – Shady Bench EP

Moving to Sheffield seems to have had a positive effect on K-Orse & Bass Hound, as they’ve really stepped up their game for this EP, with tracks like Steel City & Gully Get Mad paying direct homage to that influence. Mainly full of whistling synths and niche influenced beats, though I think our favourite track has to be Spookerstar, with it’s cheesy Halloween pop intro giving way to an absolute bassline monster! This EP is definitely full of win.

Krissi B ft Laura Lou – I Want U

Being a small independent record label and releasing vinyl isn’t easy (we should know) and that’s why we have maximum respect for Kiosk Records, and rightly so as their latest release is a banger. Featuring the vocal talents of Laura Lou, a long term collaborator with Krissi, we can’t deny the vocal hook is catchy. The original version rolls along nicely but really comes into it’s own on both Krissi B‘s 2step Mix, a skippy affair with some lovely steel drums and also the EJ remix, who takes the original and cuts the vocals up as well as introducing a seriously gritty bassline. Available from all good (and evil) record shops.

Audiogutter – Derail EP

Audiogutter comes in with both barrels blazing for this latest release on Mutant Bass Records. Opener Skeleton Tribe is an excellent blend of hard electro house, midrange dubstep basslines and techno. One of the best things about this EP is how every track is different yet retains Audiogutters unique sound, and he isn’t afraid to experiment as on his collab with Paperchase, a twisted take on the grime instrumental. Out now for pennies, pounds or free.
