Bass Friend is suited to the early morning sessions, when things start to go weird. The "Mix For Him" is based on a pared back rhythm and a twisted frequency-shifting bassline, but the killer element is the tripped out vocal sampling that menacingly intones 'I'm your bass friend / I'll do it to you again and again'. After that, none of the other versions are as out there. "Mix for Her" is more slamming and feeds off a searing acid ridd, while the Sneekers version is powered by dense, bleepy riffs. Only the Elektropusher version, with its distorted synths and noisy, glitch rhythms comes close to emulating the "Mix for Him" remix.
Since the end of the noughties, house aficionado Mason has been all over the house game, shooting off release after release for a large variety of labels, including the incorrigible Spinnin, out of Holland. This time, he's on Kittball Germany with "Live On Dreams", a pensive house tune for the opening sets, or even the closing sets - whatever you deem most appropriate! There's also an original radio edit, with a shorter, tighter groove for listening playback, and a remix from Affkt which delivers a higher concentration of percussion and drums. BAD!
