Lil Silva – Club Constructions Vol.2 (Night Slugs) A couple of months ago Night Slugs announced they were embarking on a series of 12's that were purported to be aimed squarely at the dancefloor, which is an interesting statement to make as it suggests that label owners Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 have decided that their innovative imprint perhaps lacked a little dance floor applicability. Originally for Night Slugs this wouldn't have particularly been an issue as they were one of a few labels that were pioneering what we now call bass music, however since those innovative first releases the scene has morphed quite considerably, with artists now ...

Kodiak – Spreo Superbus (Girl Unit Remix) Kodiak is not an artist we or anyone else seems to know much about, other than they are a London duo who make brazen main room bass music. However as good as this debut offering is, it’s the remixes from Actress and Girl Unit that steal the show. First up Actress draws the track back within itself employing a delicate piano riff to backdrop the vocal with emotional 80's synth nostalgia before laying all thoughts of melancholy to waste with a buzzing front of centre synth line. Next up see's the welcome return of Girl Unit with his high energy take on the original. Maintaining the ... Read more / Preview track

GoldFFinch – Point of Entry (877 Records) GoldFFinch first came to our attention with their sublimely accessible bass single Red Mask on Numbers, and now the Belguim duo are back with their 3rd single - 'Point of Entry/Arabian Prince' on 877 Records. Leading off with 'Point of Entry' GoldFFinch demonstrate again that they have a sound that gives them both an air of credibility whilst appealing to the wider dancefloor. The combination of ground shaking sub, booty vocal loops, punchy drums and almost fidget type leanings mean this track is going to be on heavy rotation for a wide range of DJs. Second track Arabian Prince is ... Read more / Preview track

Hessle Audio – Objekt (HES 019) By now you should be aware that Hessle Audio took the torch for Bass music in 2011 and under the guidance of label owners Ben UFO, Pearson Sound and Pangea they have helped solidify a genre of music into a brand of electronic music that both excites and pushes the boundaries, despite its often self indulgent nature. Next up on Hessle is Berlin based Objekt with a two track bass shaker. At first listen the lead track Cactus comes off as one of those Bass tracks that you quickly dismiss as well produced but irrelevant to the dancefloor, encouraging you to move onto the second and more ...
