He now touches down on the almighty Night Bass for his latest conquest, that being his extremely tech heavy 'Naughty Pleasure' EP. The title track itself is a super smooth 4x4 roller, driven by tight electronic bass tones and minimalist drum grooves, followed by a crunchy, metallic collaboration with the ever ready Inkline entitled 'Walk Away'.

Finally, we take a peek at the VIP mix of 'Shook', a track which is packed with some seriously electrifying energy, driven by its lethal synthesizer runs and punchy drum production. The Night Bass rampage continues!

Following this, the darkened sub tones and shimmering drum work of 'Dangerous' step into the field, with the minimal jackin' production themes of 'Criminal' not far behind. The finishing move comes via 'Relax', a smooth, moody roller, brought to life by its bright drum movement and vocal inputs.
Review: A.C. Slater's Night Bass is a wildly successful, internationally renowned institution for ground breaking, forward-thinking dance music that's spearheading an underground movement across the U.S.A. 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!
Review: Now let's be honest, is there anything that can stop the Night Bass train it it's tracks? It appears not as they continue their star studded ride with this latest project from MNNR, who gets seriously busy across two powerful originals. The first of these takes the title track role and goes by the name of 'Scared To Death', which brings together shuffling, sharpened bass creations and catchy vocal slices, topped with bubbling drum structures to add that dash of sauce. On the flip we are treated to another heater in 'Lazers', which, unironically uses lazer-like siren tones to form an alarming bass lead. Perfect for the ravers!

We begin our delving into this one with a trip through the title track 'Deadly Weapon', which is a nuclear strike of an original, packing a punch between it's hard hitting synth designs and sharp brass melodies. Next, the crunchy drum work of 'Trap Bitch' whirls into play, which takes a more subtle approach, focusing on large scale sub bass and vocal slices. Finally, we finish up with the shuffling synthesizer rolls of 'Slug 45', rounding up a very impressive body of work.
Review: It's been a very exciting year for NuBass so far, who seems to be able to do no wrong as he continues to expand both his fanbase and catalogue with hard hitting releases dropping left, right and centre.

Review: It's been somewhat of a quiet start to the year for Shift K3y, who has been one of the most prominent figures in UK Dance music over the past few years, constantly pushing out original material laced with intense creativity. This EP see's him return to his tip top best as 'To The Floor' shuffles into play with it's unique, crunchy synthesized leads and bubbling 4x4 rhythms bringing a serious dose of dancefloor energy. On the flip, we are joined in collaboration mode by the legendary Taiki Nulight, one of Night Bass's most consistent flag flyers.

Review: For Brighton producer Taiki Nulight, he couldn't be more excited to release on Los Angeles-based Night Bass. This is a culmination of years of DJing and collaborating. His last LP Murky Manor was the soundscape of his life to date, claiming it was so important for him as an artist to do a full album - one that showcased the full depth and breadth of his sound. The themes continue on the Soundwave EP. The moody bounce of the title track and its druggy vocals, the intoxicating late night shuffle of "Lil Mama" and crossing over into minimal tech house on the tunneling "Turn It Up" - this one is fierce!

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'.
