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…

Donky Pitch – We Didn’t Think We’d Make It This Far

We’re all about supporting interesting, decent, local & independent labels (how very Brightonian I know…) though with Donky Pitch’s latest, aptly titled compilation it’s not hard to see why. Like us they’ve carved out a niche in this city, and their label has been pushing a very interesting side of melodic, yet danceable electronica. To celebrate their 10th release they’ve bought us this free 18 tracker, a great introduction to the label, featuring one track from each of their EP’s as well as 8 exclusive tracks. What’s not to like?

Taiki & Nulight – Key’ed EP

Like any genre bassline is going to have to evolve to stay relevant, and this release from Taiki & Nulight (hot on the heels of their fantastic collab with My Nu Leng) has all the promise of things to come. Slowing the tempo down, this release combines niche with jackin, house, garage and bass music providing a very forward thinking EP. Especially interesting is the final track, produced with Party Like Us label boss AC Slater, which has elements of his classic Trouble & Bass sound thrown in.

V/A – We’ll Tear Your Soul Apart

Horror Boogie return with another strong vinyl release: the aptly titled We’ll Tear Your Soul Apart. Dankle kicks things off with Isabigting, a bouncey bassline wobbler with an infectious vocal sample. Second track from CPTN is his usual insanity with ultra heavy basslines over a broken techno beat. Thorpey’s Trippin Balls features a more mutated bass and a seriously heavy, grime-esque beat with a nice Fear & Loathing sample chucked in for good measure, and rounding it off is LZWretch with something that sounds like sped up/messed up wonky techno. A solid release, and on vinyl for only £5 it’s an absolute steal. Order now from horrorboogierecords@gmail.com (digital out soon)

Hostage – July 2012 Mix

This summer mix (not that we’ve had a summer in England) is a solid affair, previewing some tasty new cuts from the man himself, and others (like Tomb Crew). If you know Hostage you know what to expect, 130bpm techno influenced bassline business is the dish of the day, and it tastes gooooood.

Flosstradamus – Mix For LFTF

One of the hottest names in trap goes in hard with this mix. Serious amounts of sub bass, crunk vocals and nice 808 drums round it off nicely. Possibly the Kanye song is going a bit too pop, but somehow it slips through the net. Originally made for a very on it blog called Live For The Funk.
