Review: The Night Bass train continues to roll out furiously as they employ the services of five brand new faces across their brand new compilation 'Night Bass Freshmen'. Being one of the most popular bass labels in the UK, the standard is set very high and everyone steps up to the mark, kicking off with Blossom's vibrant 4x4 belter 'Go'. We then move into Nukid's highly experimental electro balad in 'Front2Back' before landing on the techy bass rolls of 'The Burbs' from Jordan Burns. Next up, Kendoll with his slightly acidic stomper in 'Stop Calling Me' before we round of the EP with some minimalist UK Bass from the rapidly rising duo of Nubass & Deppz.
Review: As a very exciting follow up from their more UKG orientated launch, Wang Records are back at it again with a brand new bass compilation, showcasing some of the most exciting artists currently working in the UK as 'Arcade Invaders' lands with immediate impact. This one starts with a look at a killer combination as Tenshu & Dread MC join forces on the stripped back blippy roller entitled 'Storyteller', before NuBass & Deppz land with some super techy ideas on 'Jenga'. Next up, Inkline delivers as per with a uniquely metallic original entitled 'Brute Force', with Hoda putting the finishing touches on the project with the super smooth sub lines of 'Theory'.
Review: As a label, Crucast have gone from strength to strength, rapidly establishing themselves as one of the premiere platforms for bass music in the UK. This complication marks that out perfectly with an astonishing selection of over 30 original creations, featuring high profile appearances from the likes of Jaguar Skills, Brent Kilner, Pavv, TC4, Inkline, Deadbeat UK and a tonne more. For us the EP highlights the strength in the current UK bass scene, with favourites being Bushbaby & Hadean's long-awaited collaboration release 'Clean Up', the monstrous swinging synths of Tengu's 'Weapon' and of course the wonky wonderings of SaidWho's 'Voices', a truly original compositional idea, focussing on rawcus bass sounds and scattered drum selections.
