While Bristol's bass scene usually heralds the D&B and dubstep crews as the champions, there's a fine line of deeper, more experimental bass artists in the Wild West too, and Forget Me Not are a great place to start. "Should Be Stronger" ignites with deep house panache and a Hercules & Love Affair style vocal before shuffling hi-hats and a soaking wet sub make their way into the mix. "Big Tings" continues this garage flex with a Ramsey & Fen style four-to-the-floor workout, complete with a very authentic vocal sample. "How Long" brings us to a fittingly sophisticated conclusion thanks to swooning breakbeats and deep jazz pad work. Beautiful... You won't forget these dudes in a hurry.
From Diamond & Raw, a new record label based in Edinburgh, Bristol bass trio Forget Me Not team up with The Boxette's singer Neo for this very tasteful and forward-thinking mix of R&B sugar, creeping techno textures and 2-step beats. Huntley & Palmers' excellent Auntie Flo drops a bare but thrilling drum-led remix, as does Gullfisk, who winds in superb floating, dubby soundscapes on his more head-focused mix.
