On the other side of the great, giant pond, the cause of bass music has never pushed more so than by LA's AC Slater and his Night Bass label. Sometimes its output can be raucous and underground, but sometimes the label can be commercial too. Either way the output is always totally lit. "Come Back" is strictly in the latter camp, a hook up with Shift K3Y, it has resulted in a super infectious and uplifting banger, with rolling bass, skippy beats and more build ups and break downs than you can shake a stick at!
The great thing about working on the digital side of the scene is to hear so many newcomers slap down their own interpretations of bass music, and that's precisely what we get here from this debut by the enigmatic SOLV. Coming through on the rampant Low Pitched catalogue, the artist drops the garage-driven groove "192" which we've got absolutely no issues in leaving on the office speakers for the rest of this sunny Thursday afternoon! "All You", on the other hand, goes for the jungle refresh, injecting grainy EMU breaks to a rich tapestry of grime-like mutant bass and vintage house synths. Talk about hybrids!
The big, bad Wookie is back on ManChu with some o' dat ol' time garage we dig so much! The prosperous producer gets better with each new Ep pumped out from this tidy imprint, and we love the fact that it's just all about the music here - all killer, and absolutely no filler! This magnetic remastering of "Gallium" is a pleasure to every part of your dancing body; there is just something so pleasing about its straight, effective house groove that only hints at something more garage-centric. That is, 4/4 beats dominate the equation, along with a fine sprinkling of vintage piano keys, but there is plenty of UK sensibility at its core, making this an absolute beauty to get that floor jam-packed!
