A true meeting of kindred electro spirits, as San Diego's Harvard Bass and Holland's Bart Bmore join forces for this awesome new double-track release. You'd expect their individual skills in making incendiary dance music might result in an over-the-top orgy of bass, bleeps and beats, but on "The Funky One", they actually restrain themselves well - dropping a building banger that marries a short funk sample with ever-climbing Dutch leads and a pared-down but addictive beat. "The Dark One" however sees them go for broke as they melt together a cavalcade of intense white noise, gritty filter bass and hardcore beats.
Since its inception, Steve Lawlor's Viva Music label, has played host to a ridiculous amount of top names on their way to the top. Now to celebrate the label's tenth birthday, Lawlor's amassed a selection of exclusive cuts from some of the biggest and best acts from his roster. Groove Armada are first, submitting the intricate tech-house bomb "Free At Last", with Phil Weeks following up with the boogie-lead "Come On Baby". Beyond that Harvard Bass submits the minimal animal "Peep Game" and Junior Sanchez drops the mesmerising glitchy attack "Which Way To Go". Can't wait for part two!
Although this latest release on Mark Knight's Toolroom imprint is only a one tracker, there's a fair few heads involved in its creation. Prince Club are a young house obsessed duo from Canada and Harvard Bass is the Tijuana man behind the Bump City label. "Canixo" is sure to get a fair few feet moving too with its low-slung electro-house bass line, and general moodiness sugared with total hands in the air trancey top line. Top tune!
