The Muscles from brussels Mickey has put out one of my favourite jams of 2014 on legendary label Exploited. This thing is perfect. Bouncy enough for the big room, sexy enough for a poolside Jamboree.

 

“You make me so happy, sweet baby”

Yet another remix of Sam Smith’s smash hit. (What song has he put out that isn’t a smash hit?) On this one Brit Wilfred Giroux gives it a tropical bounce and let me tell you the people love it….

Kulkid – Forgot About Kul (Original Mix)

Kulkid dropped his latest original work about a week ago with a debut EP, Forgot About Kul/I Need U.  Forgot About Kul sets the tone with a little hip-hop inspiration, a set of looping vocals and a moody bass line.  If you want a little hop  in your step check out I Need U which is sure to get those bones of yours moving.

Both songs are excellent and perhaps show us a glimpse into what Kulkid has been up to, and what could be to come.  Look out for this French producer as he’s doing good things.

I’ve just discovered LA artist Jaymes Young and am in the process of downloading most of his Soundcloud. With its sampling of Sufjan Stevens, Habits of my Heart is one of my favourites. Definitely a track to cuddle to.

NEUS

 

 

This remix of Pharrell’s Happy has really put Paris producer NEUS on the map. While the majority of NEUS’ other tracks fall under the electro-bass genre, this mix has a cool electro-funk swing to it. After just over two weeks, there’s already almost 3 million Soundcloud plays on this one.

friday night

 

Reva DeVito & Kaytranada make a killer match-up, and their collaboration on Friday Night is now a favourite of mine from both artists’ repertoire. Kaytranada’s deep-house groove and Disclosure-esque percussion fits Reva’s vocals perfectly. Timing couldn’t be better with this coming out for summer.

Don’t even bother with the laptop speakers here friends… At #1 on this edition of Bass Report, a slow moving take on trap dripping in buttery smooth low-end bliss.

#1 Dawn Golden – All I Want (Daktyl Remix)

I really like the balance Daktyl strikes here, giving the green light to dance floors, while still clutching onto the rainy day feel of Dawn Golden‘s original. The atmosphere the drop drums up is equal parts ominous, and yet somehow soothing. A difficult combo to say the least!

I imagine this is the shit the Grinch cranks in his earbuds as he slinks through the town pulling off flawless B&E’s. Am I wrong?

I can’t stop listening to esta,’s mix of Art of Persuasion by Alina Baraz. The bassline bumps and bounces and with a sound that’s the perfect combination of punchy and airy. The synth finale is epic – a particular highlight for me. I always liked the vocals on Alina Baraz’ original version, but have to say esta. makes the whole thing a lot more interesting.

The Neighbourhood — Lurk

Lurk is the third track released off The Neighbourhood’s forthcoming mixtape, #000000 & #FFFFFF, and it’s the first track of theirs that I wasn’t really feeling at first. The verses are dark, yet the chorus is poppy; it sounds like The Neighbourhood, but it’s also a big departure from their more rock influenced songs off their previous releases. I guess I couldn’t decide if I liked it or not. After listening to it a lot more, I definitely do. The Neighbourhood have been really good to me over the past couple of years, releasing song after song that I love, so I’m on board with whatever direction they decide to take with this new mixtape.

There is no set release date for #000000 & #FFFFFF, but you will be able to download it for free on Live Mixtapes upon its release.

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.

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!

dillon-francis-650-430

 

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.

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)

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.
