Is it house? Is it bass? Who cares - it's a new EP from Proxy courtesy of the ever-impressive Night Bass household! The Turbo Recordings regular steps up large and in charge through "Sirenade", a minimalistic bass grenade backed by a swarm of noxious synths that sound more like alarm bells, and that is followed-up by a rather odd but utterly banging hybrid in the form of "I Feel", probably the best example of something worthy enough of moving the scene forwards. Last but not least, "Magic Word" uses the power of the vocal chop to slice and dice its way through a set of sparse but effective bass mortars and, of course, a much needed house groove. There's something brewing here - don't miss it!
LA based label Night Bass have for a long time now been pushing the boundaries of electronic dance music through exciting sound design and style. Their latest release, courtesy of Proxy, sees the boundaries of rhythm pushed out further than ever before with a vibesy two tracker. First of all we hear the sounds of "Stupid" which is a reesey roller coupled with heavily syncopated clicky synth leads. The shuffled theme continues on "Serious" which has a more stripped back, sub-heavy arrangement.
