Taiki Nulight - "Check Out Time" - (4:55) 126 BPM
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: Flinging double negatives like a clown hurls custard pies, AC Slater builds on Night Bass's generous debut release with his second full-fat EP of the year. With a sound and attitude that's been cemented into the bass scene psyche for a decade, you know what to expect from him: BS-free floor-fire with added humour... And that's exactly what we get. "The Chirp" is a Dirtybird-level jacker, "Skywalker OG" taps deeper into the classic house roots with an air of late 90s Van Helden, "Waterverb" flips the trap bird before dropping into some seriously silky 4/4 wobble while "Not No Love Song" vibes with classic rave synths and a speed garage style drop that's not, not, amazing.

Review: For those in the know on the bassline scene, Welsh DJ Jay Robinson has been a hot name to watch for a while now. Always fine-tuning his brand of doomy bass heavy house, his latest single, 1987 has already picked up support from the likes of My Nu Leng, Shadow Child, Toddla T and Herve. "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: Anglophile US producer Petey Clicks has made a name for himself with his impressively authentic take on underground UK bass sounds. He does so with his own unique twist of course, and this can be heard throughout. "Trash" starts things in a lairy mood with speedy 2-step beats, nasty bass and raw vocals. From there "If Ya" slams some raw tribal house into the mix, "Like Body" is lean muscular 4x4 and "The One" is a diva-garage anthem in the making.

Following on from fellow American producer Petey Clicks, they too release an EP on the ever-savvy Night Bass. "Hotfire" features four tracks that draw on a wide range of influences, including UK garage and wobble on "I Need You", party breaks on "Pivotal" and even good old fidget house on "Yesterday".

Nu Jam - (5:17) 124 BPM
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: 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.

Guess Who - (5:40) 126 BPM
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.

Played by: Mr Brainz
Review: Great to know that despite all the wonted EDM Stateside, the likes of Petey Clicks in LA is keeping it real. "My House" is a tough, attitude-heavy slice of stomping wobble with the kind of bass that'll rattle your bones. If the UK vibes seem strong with this one it might be down to the influence of Sinden who collaborates with Clicks here on "Feels", a banger that adds chipmunk vocals and breakbeats to the mix in killer effect.

Review: Originally a pioneer of fidget house with Herve and Switch, Graeme Sinden recently relocated to Los Angeles to regain his mojo. However, despite the ubiquitous EDM that surrounds him there, his sound still stays true to the good old UK. Here on the Crystal Maze EP he presents four sizzling new cuts - the dubby garage of the title track, the bouncey hip-house of "Southern Rhythm", the trippy bleeps of booty joint "To The Ground" and the badass wobble attack "To The Ground".

Dominos - (4:47) 63 BPM
Review: Taiki Nulight's recent antic on Night Bass are steadily earning our attention and praise, not least because of their sheer carelessness for all the latest trends and sub-genre-fascination. The producer, who comes out of an excellent recent appearance alongside Low Steppa, goes dirty and loud with a no-nonsense, jungle-ridden bass monster built strictly for the dance floor. "Dominos", on the other hand, is a UK house bastard boasting a steady bit of beats, but an utterly deranged pile of sonics. It's one for the heads.

Beatdown (feat Vanilla ACE - AC Slater remix) - (4:52) 126 BPMBiggest-selling track on this release
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.

Review: London's Jack Beats (aka Niall Dailly & Ben Geffin), are, if not quite wise old elders of the bassline scene, then certainly one of the genre's more established acts. Here they are back with a two pronged attack: "Work It" provides a deep acid bassline, a solid 4/4 groove and hip-house vocals whilst "Intermission" stands out with its combination of a rap vocal, heavy wobble bass and synthy atmospherics.

Modish - (3:55) 125 BPM
Review: Those who dismiss out of hand the stateside rise of EDM are missing out. For every Guetta or Harris, there's a producer discovering, and making, proper dance music too. Californian duo Hotfire (Eric Yandall and Sascha Nowlin) are a perfect example, making cool UK style bass music whilst hailing from San Diego. "Tough Break" is bouncy, bleepy mechanical funk at its finest, "The Fuegs" is fusion of a clever raw, arpeggiated electro and deep percussive house, whilst "Modish" wraps things up with some skippy, if subdued, garage beats and laser rhythms.

Review: Two of the most prominent faces on the Night Bass roster, Petey Clicks and former fidget house man, Sinden, have teamed up to deliver two punishing (in a good way) bangers. The title track gives a little UK 4x4 twist to a classic underground US house sound, whilst "Heartbeat" goes all out for the retro approach, with old skool organ stabs and wailing pitched-up diva vocals. Label boss AC Slater then delivers an utterly mesmerising electro-bass rejig of the title track and Hotfire injects some serious bottom end into their version of "Heartbeat". Ace sounds!

Review: There we were, thoroughly enjoying Welsh DJ Jay Robinson's brand of doomy bass heavy house, when he disappears for ages! Now he's back with all fists flying on the Fight Music EP. There are three ferociously pissed off tunes here for the harder dancefloors out there. Opener "Dogfight" ducks and weaves with instrumental breaks, big breaks and some seriously growling bass. Elsewhere "Kombat Dub" is a taught and techy affair littered with video game samples and finally "Choker" is a straight out thumper with a bassline that's more likely to chew your leg off than ever fetch your paper!

Review: Boy, it's their instalment of the This Is Night Bass series and, as always, it's a tight and severely jam-packed bag of pure bass-ridden quality. 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: 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: The quality of Dave Ralston's recent productions have seen him become a staple on the UK bass scene, releasing through Night Bass and getting plays on Rinse FM and Radio 1. 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".

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".

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.

Next is the creepy, bleepy shuffle of "The Model", before he gets his wobble out on the skippy "Red Dot". Lastly he wraps things up with the UKG-informed "The Start", which is actually the end, but Robinson never plays by the rules.

Review: No messing around on this one: the man-machine Lorenzo lays down a severe groove and gives it the grave name it deserves. Spiked-out, siren-loaded and prone to switching, "Foot & Mouth" is the type of gully tune we all need as we come down from a hot, sticky summer. "Nightmares" follows suit with a similarly detuned feel to the bassline, all paranoid, weirded out and non-standard... The main strength that's got Chris to his premiership position in the first place.

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!

"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.

Arriving on his own mighty Night Bass Label, My Peoples is a two track EP that continues to bring the sub-heavy heat to the USA. The title track is a storming 4 x 4 thumper with hip-hop samples and a stop-start dynamic that'll stop you resting on your laurels. Next up "Psycho" is a throwback to the deep and jazzy garage/house of the 90s - imagine vintage Van Helden with a firecracker in his tracksuit!

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.

Mercury - (4:38) 125 BPMBiggest-selling track on this release
Review: London duo Jack Beats return for Los Angeles' Night Bass imprint which continues to go from strength to strength with some killer releases lately by the likes of Herve, AC Slater and Sinden. Getting straight down to business on the late night sleaze of the title track (which features the sickest slap funk bassline you'll hear this year) beneath an electric, neon lit arrangement. There is also "Mercury" which builds into a groovy bass-driven shuffle optimised for maximum dancefloor impact. As the label put it "This is Jack Beats at the top of their game" and we certainly agree.

Risk - (5:08) 125 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.

Formula 3000 - (4:18) 126 BPM
Review: It's kinda crazy to look back and see just how much music the Night Bass label put out between 2015 and the beginning of 2017. It's an unfathomable amount of releases for such a young label and, the thing is, it's all pretty damn hot, too! Jack Beats is the project from Niall Dailly and Ben Griffin, who are back with the second landing of the Body Work series, and kicking things off with a bit of a gangsta flex thanks to "The Lean", a cold-hearted London bombshell propelled into motion by some dutty grime vocals, and a menacing groove. "Formula3000" brings in Taiki Nulight for a bigger, badder flow of break-ridden, bass filth - just the sort we vibe to.

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.

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: American bass music is always produced big and tough. Hailing from LA, AC Slater's Night Bass label excels at this particular breed of shizzle. Here Slater shares a release with Taiki Nulight who presents "Super Doopah Legend" - a sizzling anthem with ascending/descending bass riffs, comedy vocal samples, build-ups and a general ghetto bounce. Slater himself also provides "Head Knockin", a strong 4 x 4 vehicle, featuring weird low squelches and dubbed-out lasers. Another quality joint from Night Bass then.

Awake - (4:01) 128 BPMBiggest-selling track on this release
Review: If there's one thing we can all agree on it's this: Petey Clicks needs to release music on much more of a regular then he currently does. These two jacking bass house tracks remind us exactly why... "VA To LA" slides us some gully gossip in the form of a grunting high end bassline and a clattering groove that bites down and refuses to let go. "Awake" takes us deeper down the rave rabbit hole with a classically-informed detuned synth riff, a twisted two-step and an amenised breakdown that's heavy enough to power a time machine (1.21 gigawatts) and take us all the way back to 92. Woke yet?

Come Back - (5:08) 125 BPM
Review: On the other side of the great, giant pond, the cause of bass music has never pushed more so than by LA's AC Slater and his Night Bass label. Sometimes its output can be raucous and underground, but sometimes the label can be commercial too. Either way the output is always totally lit. "Come Back" is strictly in the latter camp, a hook up with Shift K3Y, it has resulted in a super infectious and uplifting banger, with rolling bass, skippy beats and more build ups and break downs than you can shake a stick at!

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: 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!

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.

Pump - (3:57) 126 BPM
Review: Jack Beats return to Night Bass with two of the most prime cuts imaginable. "Modulate" is almost techno in its mindset as the stripped back groove bumps and flexes until a warped bassline worms its way into the mix rising, teasing and melting into the groove. "Pump" maintains the heat with depth plunge bass tones that spiral so low you'll feel the need to pull up your trousers. Arguably two of Jack Beats' best bangers since they emerged almost 10 years ago.

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.
