Review: As a project and movement, 3000 Bass has been at the forefront of the UK's bass scene for the last few years, supplying the masses with continuous heavyweight drops and premieres. Here we see them return via their official label imprint: 3000 Digital, alongside the likes of Chicago based CLB for an absolutely scorching bass tumbler. For this one hard hitting lead synths provide the energy above pounding subs and relentless drum movements, landing this one right into the the 'Must Play' section of any DJ's tracklisting. With a new website launching imminently and a tonne of projects in the works, we look forward to what the 3000 team have to offer for 2019 and beyond.
Review: It's safe to say that the 3000 Bass movement has been pretty instrumental in UK bass music's rise to eminence over the last few years. For this release they utilise their 3000 Digital imprint alongside Brighton's Hot Goods to put together this scorching two tracker. On the A-side we have the title track, 'Loanshark' a sharp piece of production led by monsterous synth work. On the flip side we are treated to 'Too Much', another synthy Goliath, this time with a more melodic selection of bass instruments working in electronic harmony.
Review: It's always a pleasure to see our friends at 3000 deliver the goods, which is exactly what they have done here as they bring forward a weighty new project from the likes of JGE. We are treated to two top draw bassline originals, beginning with a look at the title track 'Nobody Else'. This one is packed full of electrifying energy, coupled with haunting vocal samples and and striking bassline leads, making this original lethal in the dance. On the flip, we hear 'Spiralling', another explosive creation, driven by its revving lead synths and slap in the face drum arrangements. Crazy stuff from the 3000 team on this one!

Review: Little to nothing is known about Mind The Gap besides this: they're making some deliciously dark fusions right now. "A1" features the commanding tones of My Nu Leng's mic-man of choice Dread MC and stomps with a smouldering techno-inspired groove while "Like A Soldier" reveals a much more sensual side with big breeze pads, dreamy arpeggios and an elastic two-step drop that's so darned sexual it could make DJ EZ blush. Big up Mind The Gap...Whoever you are!
Review: And just like that, Mr Curi jumps on the scene with his debut release for the new and fledgling 3000 Digital imprint. This is hybrid gear; "Rock The Bells" is a house tune is structure that has been taken over in its low-end by squealing pseudo dubstep bleeps and growls. There's two remixes of the tune from Mikey B and Brent Kilner, the first being an aggressive had house version and the second a power garage take on the original, followed by and finished off with "By My Side" and its alternate set of dubstep rings and waves. Lovely gear.
Review: London Based Multi Genre Producer and DJ Ralston has released on labels like Night Bass, Audiophile XXL, Night Shift Sound and Eskape-Musik. His new one comes courtesy of 3000, following up great ones by CLB, Mr. Curl and Hot Goods. His new thriller "Lonely" is a wonky grime influenced bounce featuring some super sexy vocals, while "Mind Scan" goes more underground on this darkside speed garage groove that will take you all the way back to '97 when Tuff Jam and Double 99 reigned supreme.
Review: Menace to society, menace to the dancefloor: Hungarian bass welder Sirmo proves the knighthood in his name once again with two more funk-minded floor-focussed cuts where the springiest of basslines are out to play. The title track fuses with a series of classic breaks before dropping into a Night Bass style low end strut while "Fearsome" bumps and sways with an almost Dirtybird style funk thanks to the downpitched vocal hook.
Review: We are absolutely loving what the team at 3000 have been doing recently, from a wicked run of releases through their two lead pages in 3000 Bass and 3000 Deep, to their highly active blog based website and fantastic record label, the latest release of which we have for you today. This compilation consists of eight futuristic creations, featuring some high profile names such as Kissa & Jaikea, Lalzin, Nekst and more. Our favourites off the cuff for this project have to include Motiv's wicked collaboration with Dread MC, taking classic Dread adlibs and vocal lines and fusing them with party starting synths. We also love 'Danger' from DN10, a perfect tune for the dance!
Review: It's been a very solid year for the team over at the 3000 Network, who alongside controlling multiple avenues for releasing dance music, have established threethousand.co.uk as one of the leading news and premiere platforms for bass music in the UK. This latest compilation sees them return to the 3000 Digital arm of the network to unveil 10 dancefloor stormers, including potent, heavy hitting originals from the likes of Sheppy, Teotek, Ghstghstghst, Nada Deva, KusKa and more. For us, highlights have to include the super catchy vocal swings and hard hitting bass instrumentation of BTW's 'What We Had', along with the high pressure bass designs of 'Pull Up', from Spacegat and MPH.
Review: Following on from the first year of the incredibly popular threethousand.co.uk news outlet, the 3000 team are at it again, this time amassing another killer roster as they unveil the third edition of their flagship 'Digitalization' series. Across ten track, we hear some truly innovative bass work from the likes of Gofra Maslow, ONE&TWO, Sisko x Rawz, Demon Tweaks and more. For us however, there is a clear and obvious stand out on this project, as Isenberg kicks off his 2020 with a serious bang as 'Armed & Dangerous' provides us bags of both melodic energy and bassy goodness. Excellent stuff.
