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…

Filthy Vicars – 2000 Likes EP

A free EP celebrating 2000 likes on Facebook from bass duo Filthy Vicars, including several remixes and a couple of original tracks. They get off to a good start with Outrun, utilising samples from the popular SEGA game of the same name over a grime-esque bassline. The Breach remix is nicely catchy and closer Pass Me By (A Trolley Snatcha refix) is a seriously floorkilling edit of an already heavy tune. Definitely enough bangers in here to warrant the free download.

AC Slater – Night Moves EP

AC Slater is back once again, with a release on his own label Party Like Us Records. Opener So Sweet kicks things off with a lovely female vocal hook courtesy of Megan Thomas, though it’s the second track Go Harder that really had us hooked with that trademark AC bass, though clearly he has matured his sound of late. A great release available on Beatport among others, with the second track a free download off his Soundcloud.

Kommon & Dr Cryptic – Vulcan EP

The most recent release on Chip Butty Records sees Dr Cryptic teaming up with relative newcomer Kommon for a dark-garage meets bassline affair. These two are definitely pushing the bassline genre in new directions, with 2step beats overlaid with moody bass. For my money final track Robojim is the standout, a floorkilling 4×4 affair, with a slightly subtler sub-heavy bass giving way to a gritty midrange one midway through. Ave it!

Gammy, K-orse & Basshound – Make Em Moist EP

A solid release from the Off Me Nut camp see’s Gammy teaming up with K-Orse & Basshound for this split EP. Definitely one for fan’s of Squires, bouncy basslines with a hint of the niche sound are prevalent. Standout track is the Basshound remix of title track ‘Make Dem Ladies Moist’, with it’s tropical sounding drums and heavy hitting basslines. As usual from these guys it’s pay what you like, and worth every penny!

Excision – Shambhala 2012 Mix

Once a year, I still need a horrendously bait dose of nails dubstep, and this is where I look. I know it’s crossed over into the teen head-bopping Skrillex wannabe dolts, but still…once a year I forgive where this type of dubstep has ended up (ie on Radio 1) and enjoy some machine noises and big bass lines

DJ Q – Fact Mix 342

Showing us one of the roots of Mutant Bass music, with a mix of bassline from godfather of the scene DJ Q, for the awesome website that is FACT. Cheesy at times but definitely a good education into the less than murky past of niche music.
