Clinton VanSciver everybody! It’s so nice to hear some more original work from him, because it’s so fun to listen to. His new EP, Rings, is nicely rounded and showcases several aspects of his style. It’s got beautiful lyrics by Kelley Jakle in the title track, Rings, a really fun drop in Mr. What, and a sample-laden, downtempo rap gem ft. Mina Knock out of LA (even has a little bit of a glitch vibe). I really like Clinton’s style, and I hope you folks at home enjoy it as much as I do. If you need a fix of his dirty pop sound though, go straight to Rings, it delivers.

Bronze Whale — Weird Dark Things (ft. Khai)

Please enjoy this wonderful original from Bronze Whale, who finally finished the song after meeting vocalist Khai in Austin recently. Thank god for that, because we are now graced with Weird Dark Things. The name incapsulates the song, as the synths have an eerie vibe to them, and the vocals sound distant and echoed. If you close your eyes and believe, you might just find yourself in a weird EDM version of bowser’s castle. At least… that’s what I got somehow.

And if you like their post on Facebook and Hypem, you’ll get a free DL when you DM them. Don’t wait, and like them!

As of this moment Juun, a group made up of two producers/DJs from Berlin, have 182 likes on FB, 30 followers on Twitter and 225 likes on SoundCloud.  If you’re in to measuring that sort of stuff.  The point is, they came out of nowhere and if it wasn’t for a message to my inbox I would have never heard of them.  Well, I’m glad I did and I’m stoked that I could share it with you all.  When it’s Alright is a promising start for these young Berliners, with which they’ve set the bar high with this catchy, summery vibe that’ll have your head bouncing up and down all day long.  Enjoy.

Daft Punk — Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Dillon Francis Remix)

Sweet Jesus, happy easter indeed! Clearly influenced by the high’s of the spring festival season, Dillon Francis got the nerve to remix Daft Punk and release it for free! The tricky thing about those kinds of remixes, is that they better be damn good, or you become the spurn of all the music heads on the planet. To even touch a daft punk song requires a deft hand, and balls the size of weather balloons. Well… clearly he’s got them, because it rocks. If you’ve had the pleasure of seeing Dillon at Ultra or Coachella, you may have witnessed the awesome power this song commands, but if you’re like me, and you’re hearing it for the first time, just sit back, and bounce. With that signature feel, there’s no way you can help yourself.

Bill — Camp Fire (feat. Mac Miller & Ab-Soul)

You might remember Bill Niels—founder and creative director behind Pittsburgh based clothing brand, Daily Bread—from the track coincidentally titled, Bill (feat. Earl Sweatshirt), off Mac Miller’s side project, Delusional Thomas. Bill was one of my favourite songs off that mixtape so I was intrigued by this release. Campfire, produced by Larry Fisherman, starts out with this off-kilter guitar riff that I immediately connected with. As soon as Bill’s verse came in with the drums, I was sold. This is a really solid track (minus Ab-Soul’s verse), and you can check out the rest of Bill’s debut mixtape, Vagrant, here.

Hey there! I’m filling in for the esteemed StatiK this week on Bass Report while he’s out traveling and whatnot. I’ve brought my own musical (still bassy, don’t worry) taste to the Report, and I hope you enjoy!

 

ƱZ emerged from the ether with a massively Bass Report worthy set of tracks, each one adding to his aptly named series “Trap Shit.” In typical ƱZ fashion, they pack a punch. And by punch, in this case, I mean it’s like taking a table over the head.

 

1. UZ - Trap Shit V17-20

Released under Mad Decent‘s Jeffree’s sublabel, ƱZ‘s slow grooves will have you rocking in your chair in no time. They each grind through with unspeakable intensity; the energy builds through each song, leading the listener into an enlightened state of Bass. If you need further convincing, just skip to the second main drop section of “Trap Shit V17.”

Yeah. I told you so.

 

2. Opiuo - Quack Fat

I know StatiK usually leaves the second track explanation-less, but I just have to say something about this song. It’s damn good. Like,  KOAN Sound good, plus a sense of humor.

 

3. KATFYR  - Lose Control (feat. Maruja Retana)

 

4. Slum Village - Fall in Love (Moody Good Remix)

 

5. Symone - Buyakasha (Grandtheft and Smalltown DJs Remix)

 

6. Chromeo - Jealous (Dillon Francis Remix)

 

7. Fractal - Urchin (Prismatic and Wes Goodie Remix)

 

8. Diplo and GTA - Boy Oh Boy (Thugli Remix)

 

9. Faux Tales - Atlas

 

*Late Night Special*

SZA - Babylon (Swish Remix)

 

Still Hot!

#1 Secondcity – I Wanna Feel (Brookes Brothers Remix)

#2 Twistex ft. Savant & Gino Sydal – Frozen Flames

#3 ENiGMA Dubz – Isolated

Louis Futon have been honing their craft in the unique-downtempo-remixes-of-rap-songs-genre. Their remix of Break It Down is a good example of it. The song fades in and out of sophisticated beats, breakdowns, and well-executed flows by rapper, Logic, giving the track a very nice dynamic. Show some brotherly love for the Philadelphia natives and bump it. Big ups for the free download!

After a few months on the road, Disclosure’s finally back in the studio and this time they’ve invited up and coming house producer Friend Within to join them. The result? A bumping garage/house track with a mesmerizing bass-line. We’ve all come to know and appreciate Disclosure for their work, but if relative newcomer Friend Within keeps cranking out tracks like this he might just join them in the near future. Enjoy.

The Sydney-duo, Hermitude, just dropped some new material off of their upcoming project, and it’s good.

Lido is one of those great upcoming producers and a must follow from now on. He has produced music for Mad Decent’s artist LIZ, and will be releasing a new EP on Pelican Fly very soon. A producer of R&B tunes of the modern age. This remix really sounds so fresh with smooth piano chords and synths that eerily are smooth. Just a well designed remix. The lyrics themselves deserve a listen with topics such as Lean in gatorade. So this is a must own track for your playlist. Get on it!

Playmode – Never Let Go EP Review

It seems that Australia is on the rise with new artists this year. There’s indie electronic producers, Sable, Motez, What so Not, and  indie rockers Tame Impala, and let’s not forget Teenage Bubble-Pop Lorde, who lives in New Zealand to the east, which to most ignorant Americans is Australia anyway.  Next up on the list is Playmode a collective from Sydney/La ready to topple the charts.

 

Never Let Go begins the 9 minute EP with a  fantastic house track, taking influences from the progressive, and UK house scene.  It’s chill, its upbeat and ultimately enjoyable, a nice change of pace from the generic club ready house song.

Ending the EP is Hypnotic, a track that ditches house buildup leading into a darker, edgier vocal sample, with a possible trap influence buildup. However, all this is ditched for more generic house beats, as the repeated vocal sample become lost and stale, as the song continues.

Still, I enjoyed this EP, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for new emerging electronic artists.

I had just discovered Team Supreme beat cyphers, when a few mixes in I came across this treat buried in Volume 66. I immediately reached out to Riggadale and encouraged him like creepy 40 year olds in the club with bottles around 19 year olds to finish the track… finish the traaackkkkkk. 6 months later, three delayed cover deadlines, and may broken hearts later – the *kinda* debut single from Riggadale. The Future Trap dancefloor destroyer from the future, here in the past – Black Five Hunnah.

In today’s top spot we have one of my favorite up and comers… Possibly the only producer I’d be willing to pit against Seven Lions in a “trance-step” title match. Have a listen.

#1 Fractal – Urchin (Au5 Remix)

It aint easy to pull off this heavy of a sound at such a reduced tempo, unless your name is Au5. Not to be mixed up with brostep of old, Au5 is known for a more melodic brand of bass music that pokes at those feels as well as rattles bones. This creative take on Fractal‘s Urchin lives up to the exceedingly high standard I’ve come to expect from the versatile young producer.

Although they’ve made a name for themselves in the vein of sample-ridden jazz/soul influenced tracks – Free n Losh just dropped this trap gem shining light on their diverse production abilities. They pitched Mary J Blige’s vocals from Enough Crying both up and down, effectively using different versions of the same lyrics throughout the song. For those in the area, they’ll be playing live on April 25th in Toronto @ Supermarket alongside other YYZ Records artists Avenue and Boss & Swan.
