FYOF - (5:28) 124 BPM
Review: Having already gained interest from some compilation appearances, the Unmade EP is actually the first release proper from this San Francisco outfit. Night Bass have to really trust an artist to put out their records and thankfully 219 Boys don't let them down. There are three spacey and imaginative takes on bass music here, starting with the cheeky Les Grossman-sampling melodic house opener "FYOF". Next is "Unmake" which is a slinky slice of sauntering tech-funk, before "Risk" drives things harder bringing some heavy underground vibes into the mix.

Jaws - (4:31) 124 BPM
Review: What a crazy trip it's been for AC Slater. Having bubbled away in all kinds of genres from hardcore to electro in the 2000s, having set up Night Bass just two years ago, he's created a distinctive and hugely successful sound that's so distinctive it's often described as the Night Bass sound. With his debut album Outsiders he galvanises and develops the sound even more as he ranges from the classic bass burping UK influenced jackers we know and love him for ("Ring The Alarm", All About The Paper", "Dope Slinger") to a much more soulful, sensual palette and flexes his deeper side ("Take Off", "Come Back") With splashes of UK garage ("Another You") and total alien grit ("Jaws"), this is the Night Bass bossman really digging into his own sound, his own crew and his movement.

Free Your Soul (feat Young Lyxx) - (4:42) 124 BPM
Review: The Night Bass rampage marches forward again as founder and front runner of the American bass scene: AC Slater touches down across three tracks of fire. For the title track 'Free Your Soul', we hear AC join forces with Young Lyxx for a vibrant 4x4 stomper, encapsulating the exact sound Night Bass represents. It all gets a bit more techy next as we are introducing to the jittery lead synthesis alongside the gloopy LFOs and sharp drum designs of 'IFU'. On the final recording, we are very excited to see Armanni Reign and TS7 join the party with some vibrant contributions towards 'Step Back', an acidic roller, perfect for the dance

Big Riddim (feat Jamakabi - Riddim Commission remix) - (3:43) 124 BPMBiggest-selling track on this release
Review: It's safe to say that AC Slater has become one of the most influential names in worldwide bass music, both as a producer and as the driving force behind the infamous 'Night Bass' imprint. He makes his return to the homeworld with this brand new four tracker entitled 'Outsiders Remixed Pt 1', where we see the Night Bass collective rework classic tracks from AC's 'Outsiders' album.
To start off Sinden gets to work with a vibrant fidgety refurbishment of 'Misfit', originally featuring PVC and Herve. Next up Jay Robinson gets to work shuffling up 'Taking Off' and Riddim Commision gets busy with Jamakabi's intense vocal performance on 'Big Riddim'. Finally we are treated to Petey Clicks putting together his emotive recreation of 'Dealer' featuring credits from Tchami and Rome Fortune.

Final Fantasy (Jay Robinson remix) - (4:42) 124 BPM
Review: Next up, the Night Bass reign continues to pour, dispersing wavy music left right and centre as the founder himself returns home for a fantastic new garage single by the name of 'Final Fantasy'. This one is an instant hit, as Kaleena Zanders gets busy with some incredibly catchy vocal lines over some smooth, silky 4x4 flavours from AC Slater, making for the perfect combo. This single also comes complete with a bag of fantastic remixes, with Jay Robinson turning the original into a bouncy party piece, Steady Rock providing some nostalgic house flavours and Turno bringing forward a wicked drums interpretation, packed with catchy synth leads and lively rhythms!

Review: ooohhh - the calculating Night Bass imprint returns to some quick fire action thanks to this naughty VA comp - and the results are as impressive as they are, well, booty-shaking. There's a whole line of stars in the making here, with peeps like AC Slater, Phlegmatic Dogs and Petey Clicks all offering their various new strains of high-grade bass mutations. In fact, much like the label's wider catalogue, these future-minded bangers are a mixed race fo sorts; from speedy garage to teched-out house and dubstep, there's something in here for all lovers of the UK ting. Yes, yes!

Super Phat (feat Ushi Qute) - (4:00) 124 BPM
Review: The Night Bass rampage continues to rage as they bring in Bijou for this exciting four track selection, packing a serious punch. The title track 'Super Phat' is a heavyweight collaboration with Ushi Qute, working her impactful vocals into a high pressure build up, landing on a synth driven madness of a breakdown. To follow we have the super punchy drum work of 'Do Not Disturb' alongside the distorted devisings of 'Expert'. The EP is rounded off with some major flare as the shuffling synths and hard hitting drum designs of 'Better Than That' run riot.

Afterparty - (4:30) 124 BPM
Review: Previously spotted on Night Bass compilations, Bijou makes his EP debut on the label with the dark and dank "G-Code", a firing quartet of big boy bass antics. The title track digs deep into our inner gangster with its pushed jacking groove and catchy sample, "1000 Bitches" lets the dogs out with a barking mad groaner that's laced with some really trippy FX and twisted trap vox, "Get Up" takes more of a house route that switches up with a classic breakbeat breakdown. Finally we hit the "Afterparty" where Bijou condones some seriously mischievous behaviour over a mean snake-like riddim. This hits the g-spot alright.

Review: Phoenix-based DJ Blossom has been performing at the Night Bass Arizona shows for years, so A.C. Slater & Co. are beyond excited to introduce her first release on the Los Angeles-based label. The EP blasts off with the title track, featuring high energy vocals from TT The Artist. "DYTAM" keeps the vibe rolling along with a darker U.K. funky/bassline vibe, then leading into "Anime" 'a fidgety bass banger' with a grimy low end and featuring guest bars by Outlaw.

Played by: Kastle
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: A decade ago dance music was turned on its head by fidget house duo, Crookers. When the spectre of cheesiness loomed one half, Bot, jumped ship. Ever since he has pursued the noble route of producing underground house and bass, helping found Main Course in the process. Here he is with If U Feel, his latest missive - a skippy ghetto-tinged electro-house romp that boats some elastic basslines and the sultry vocals of Kaleena Zanders. An instrumental is also included for those wanting electronic purity, and there's a bonus track too - the deeper, jackin' grind of "Just Say".

Balut - (4:40) 124 BPMBiggest-selling track on this release
Review: According to his bio, Bot is of the future. Half man, half-machine; fully Italian. Fair enough: bring it on, we say! Formerly one half of Crookers and now stepping out on his own, bass renegade Andrea Fratangelo is now based in Los Angeles (by way of London) and delivers us the Balut EP, a collaboration with Tony Quattro. First track "Balut" is a bleepy and stripped, swing fuelled house jam for eager, early evening dancefloors. Fans of Will Clarke or the Dirtybird sound will definitely dig this. "Guess Who" features a massive white noise build up and referee whistles before the massive bass induced drop, on this tough late night house excursion for freaks.

Beatdown (feat Vanilla ACE) - (5:50) 124 BPM
Review: The prolific producer, Destructo, however hasn't released a solo effort in nearly a year. Now he's back in the game hooking up with Night Bass label mate Wax Motif and MC Vanilla Ace for their 'heavy g-house anthem', "Beatdown". The tune is lean and mean electro-house jam with a menacing bounce and a hint of wobbly nastiness in its infectious bottom end. Label captain AC Slater also steps up to deliver a more searing bassline remix. No dancefloor gets out alive with this one.

Going Up - (6:07) 122 BPM
Review: Dillon Nathaniel refers to himself as a 'manipulator of frequencies'. As this release for AC Slater's label demonstrates, it's not a bad description of his music. The title track fuses glitchy undercurrents with a throbbing bass and rolling snares, while on "Flex the Frequency" the LA -based producer moves in a similar direction, using powerful bass tones. "Body Like" is not quite as forceful, and sees Nathaniel add some sweeping chords and high-pitched vocal samples to his sound. However, this release is all about his manipulation of the low end - and on "Going Up" a throbbing bass provides the backing for chopped up vocals.

Thatas The Way I Feel - (5:28) 124 BPM
Review: Bass music legend Herve appears here for Los Angeles centered Night Bass imprint, who are up to really impressive things at the moment. As the label themselves point out, the EP 'radiates energy from the glory days of "fidget house" but with totally modern production.' And indeed it really calls to mind the likes of Switch and Jesse Rose back in the day. The bouncy title track "Real" features Wongo and some mad vocal skills from Contessa Stuto, a crazy hoover breakdown and a rolling bass line. "That's the Way I Feel" is more stripped back and drugged out, with its bumpy bassline and groovy hi toms doing most of the work, until that addictive piano breakdown comes rushing in and stuttering about the place.

Review: The Nightbass domination continues as long term bass revolutionary Jay Robinson puts together 'The Return' EP. In typical Jay fashion, the EP is outstanding and serves as a real lesson in rhythmic prowess. The title track A darkened demon, focused on lofi drum work and crunchy bass synths. This is followed by the funky grooves of 'Falling Upwards' and the monstrous lead synth design of 'The Ripper'. The EP is then finalized in style as the horn-like synths of 'The Melodic Weapon' take the reigns, driving this roller forward. This is a top project as ever from Jay Robinson and Night Bass look set to continue this incredible run of releases well into 2018 and beyond.

Review: One of the most prolific and consistent basssmiths in the house/tech/broken beat axis, Robinson continues to raise the profile with four more mischief-making collaborations; Pelikann joins in for a little Python rattling on the twisted bass throw-down "Gettuh", NIQW and Ami Carmine collide with Jay for a little dirty soul shaking on "Right Back" while GAWP is onside for the a sweet strutting house groove that's tickled with a riff that's reminiscent of mid 2000s Get Physical material. Finally we have the epic stripped back jacker "Oblivious" with Vanilla Ace that drops into an immense hood-heaving mid-section and cowbell popping groove. Jay: 1 / World: 0 It's a knockout.

Review: Night Bass is very protective of Welsh wonder kid Jay Robinson, whom they have helped nurture from the get go. So, it's no wonder that they're thrilled to announce this latest three track EP from the guy (his forth in total for the label). "Hussle" sees producer JM help contribute to this thumpin' big room gritty house monster. Next up "Heiss" is bouncy tech house with extra bottom end and finally the best of the lot is sleazy growler "SWYMGY", which also features labelmate Dillon Nathaniel on extra production duties.

Review: A.C.

The Los Angeles based imprint now serves up another one by label staple Jay Robinson: the ascendant Welshman who has previously appeared on Bingo Bass, Cr2 and Mau5trap. His new effort is "Pushing" featuring the captivating vocals of Ina Bravo - this bass driven tech house jam is so infectious. This is supported by second original offering "Wrong About You" - another vocal track which explores classic U.S. house aesthetic with a modern, and yes bass driven, twist!

Flashlight - (6:01) 124 BPM
Review: It's safe to say that Kry Wolf now has a rather impressive catalogue behind him, and nothing but quality under his belt. The man behind the Sounds Of Sumo label drops his latest release for Night Bass and it seems like the perfect place for his wondrous bass cuts. "Temper" is a slow, shape-shifting beast with a rattling percussion hook that wraps perfectly around the tune's knotted swarms of swamp bass, whereas "Flashlight" unleashes a bit of four-to-the-floor beneath a sea of rave sirens and purring bass tones. "Wavvves" feels like the last piece of hardcore continuum, a break-heavy, pseudo jungle killer to tie this man's bass experimentalism in the best possible way. Hot!

Review: Two premiere league UK bass enthusiasts Low Steppa and Taiki Nulight get their jack on for AC Slater?s Night Bass: ?Nose Powder? punches with a simple-but-deadly one note bassline technique. Warping, morphing and twisting all the way until we hit the classic garage chords on the breakdown; this guarantees hype on the floor. ?Nu Jam? rolls with slightly deeper feels as brushed hi-hats slink and slide over a slightly subtler bassline while an ominous sub hums with venom beneath. Killer.

Review: Night Bass head honcho Petey Clicks is Los Angeles's chief exponent of filthy, UK-style bass music. Here he shows us why, with two left-right jabs of tough love dance music. "Home" is where the heaviness is, featuring a relentless distorted bass pulse and rolling tropical drums. "Here 2 Kill" meanwhile is gloriously updated Good Life-style ravey house, complete with diva wails and snare rolls and classic cymbal splashes. Back to the future has never sounded so good.

The title track is peak time mayhem, with a catchy ghetto chorus married to the skippiest beats and crunchiest bass you've ever heard. Elsewhere "Next Level" is a UKF with extra punishing bottom end and lastly "High Volume" delivers the wobble with nowhere to hide.

Review: It's been a hot minute since we heard from Phlegmatic Dogs, but they are back in major style as they return to the ever-impressive Night Bass imprint for an explosive two track EP project entitled 'No Cats'. We kick off with 'Cuatrocats' which brings energy through squelchy bass waves and perfectly processed 4x4 drum patterns in typical Phlegmatic fashion. On the flip we are introduced to 'Bounce', which takes a more techy experimental route, with subtle subs rolling lose amidst heavily attacking bass stabs and yet more precise drum design. A great return for the Dogs!

Review: 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!

His last proper release was with Henderson last year, so it's good to get a new solo EP from him at last. "We Rock This" harks back to the days when hip-hop and house used get along better, being a skippy garage/4 x 4 jam with some cool MCing on top. On the digital flipside we have the deeper, housier drum -heavy afterhours gem, "All Night Long".

"Carnage" and "Guttural" kick things off with vintage samples and bouncy bass, "Throwback" is all about the epic breakdowns, the deep and nasty "Shutdown" is an EP highlight and "The End" fuses dubstep and hip-hop to devastating effect

Review: With a title like "Piano Cannon" you'd be forgiven in thinking Taiki and Low Steppa have cooked up a house cut of such funky proportions you'd think it was gilded by Morillo's mum herself. But no; the pianos barely get a look-in as the two hot-to-trot producers lay down a shuffling, mildly broken house shuffled coded with computer bleepery where the full emphasis on dark missions rather than any OTT evangelism. "Lazer" maintains the chugging spirit as we're peppered with tripped FX over another heads-down UKG style beat and some slippery low-end dynamics.

Review: Within the UK Bass scene, there are few who can be held in higher acclaim that Brighton's own Taiki Nulight, who has been at the forefront of bass music for pretty much the entirety of the scene's modern existence. This album showcases everything that the man is about, from the UKG inspired flavours of the title track 'Murky Manor', to the more futuristic and experimental stylings of 'Iconic', alongside Dread MC. Other highlights include the circular percussive movements of the 'The Business', the tearout tones of 'Primal' and of course the three high profile collaborations alongside fellow bass heavyweights: AC Slater, Chris Lorenzo and Cause & Affect.

The rhythm carrying the best part of the release is one that locks into 4/4 mode, but the melodies, low frequencies and vocals contain something seriously UK about them. In fact, if you're looking for purist British house music with a garage flavour then you'v hit the right spot; it's as if these guys have tele transported back to 2000/2001, when the roots of dubstep were being laid-down from the foundations of garage and bassline. YES.

Review: It has to be said that the combining of the terms 'night' and 'bass' does create an extra heady image of nefarious nocturnal shenanigans. Night Bass is a Los Angeles party, the popularity of which proves that America, currently in the early throes of EDM mania, is starting to look deeper for their dancefloor kicks. This compilation, featuring both new and established talent, captures their scene perfectly - highlights including the atmospheric tech-house meets bassline joint "Wild Fire" by Jack Beats, the sparse clickety-clack heavy bass house of "Gloom" by Jay Robinson and Taiki Nulight's staccato hip-house-step bouncer "Checking Out Time".

Review: LA's Night Bass imprint is contributing significantly to the US' newfound love for dance music that takes low frequencies to new extremes. As such, the label have opted to launch the fifth instalment of the This Is Night Bass series and, as you'd expect there's all sorts of bangers ready-made for dancehall gun-slinging in here! Tagged as bass doesn't do it justice though; Volac's opening "Wait A Minute" is basically a house tune that meets Drake-like r&b vocals, with the same going for Bijou's and Sinden's own 4/4, bass-filtered killers. Petey Click's "U NO I" takes the electro house framework to new and bruising levels, whereas Astronomar manages to strip it back down to tech-house territories on "100 MPH". Jay Robsinson, Dillon Nathanie and the 219 Boys are all the same wave-length, which is impressive given the fact that each one of these artists caters to a particularly niche shade of nu-school house. SUMMER ANTHEMS ABOUND.

Review: The Night Bass crew promised an 'epic selection of new tracks...a colorful mix of styles' for the second installment of their This Is Night Bass series, and they haven't let us down. The nine sizzlers included here really do capture a snapshot of here the bass scene is currently at. Highlights include the doomy house of "Bodyback", the raw techy disco of Sinden & Bot's "Grit Manis" and the brooding jacker "Shotgun" by Landis & LaPace.

Sammy Legs - "Hi-Def" - (5:42) 124 BPM
Played by: Mr Brainz, BURNIE
Review: Night Bass are wasting absolutely no time this year, as they here bring forward the second edition of their 'Night Bass Freshmen' series, showcasing the new, up and coming artists that are going to be working with the Night Bass imprint in the future. We see six originals make the tracklisting for this one, with artists such as SQWAD, Qlank, SODF and Double Agent all providing us with absolute heaters. For us however, the clear highlights for this project have to include the tech infused brilliance of 'Bad Blood' from Hot Goods, and of course Sammy Legs' super bouncy roller in 'Hi-Def'.

Review: The phenomenon that is AC Slater's Night Bass: a label, a party, a collective of like-minded spirits, a movement... In the space of a few years, they've dominated the low end game on a global scale. Their debut remix collection is another bedpost notch as they take each other's favourite tracks and versionise the dickens out of one another. Highlights include Phlegmatic Dogs' warped bass, slo-mo break-charged twist of "Gonna Be Mine", Petey Clicks jack-happy slapper take on "Nose Powder" and Landis LaPace's technoid shake up of "Guttural". File under heavyweight.

Review: The team behind the Nightbass movement continue their incredible journey through 2018 here with yet another solid compilation, really pushing the Night Bass sound right through to the year's end. This project is made up on 9 original records, including top draw creations from the likes of AC Slater, Bijou, Cause & Affect, Taiki Nulight, Bassboy and more, making up a spectacular line up to say the least. For us the instant highlights on this one have to include 'The Freq' from 219 Boys and 'Church (feat Dances with White Girls)' from Sinden & Petey Clicks, both of which encapsulate the darkened futuristic bass stylings of Night Bass perfectly!

Review: The guys at Nightbass have had truly sensational year, with top quality releases flowing out of the camp left, right and centre. As a label, AC Slater's outfit has developed into one of the most forward thinking projects currently rolling out across the bass music expanse and this compilation showcases just how far they have moved forward. The tracklisting contains a monstrous host, featuring the likes of Flava D, Shift K3y, Jack Beats, Cause & Affect and many more heavy hitters. For us the immediate standouts have to come from Jay Robinson firstly, who's acidic roller 'The Return' hits home heavily, alongside Phlegmatic Dogs, who's classic 'Cuatrocats' adds major weight to the selection. Awesome stuff and a top quality signout.
