    Flume and Emoh Instead are unstoppable. Their hugely popular collaborative effort What So Not is releasing yet another big tune on OWSLA to close the year out. This tune is all over the place in all the right ways, with floaty feel-good melodies, ethereal vocals, and a restrained-but-serious horned-out bassline. The hype around these dudes…

    Dirtybird has been taking over dancefloors all over the world, even here in the typically 4×4-adverse West Coast bass scene. Out this week from Claude Von Stroke‘s label is Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo‘s bassline bruiser Kneadin’.

  • Label Spotlight: Rain Maker

    November 16, 2013 zac

    A few months back UK Dubstep badman High Rankin let slip the name of his new house/garage alias, Rain City Riot. Rankin is known for his antics, so when he announced this new alias, I momentarily wondered if this was another pranks. After listening to his first few tracks, it is clear that while he is…

  • Shift K3Y – Make It Good

    November 11, 2013 Ben

    Shift K3Y can always be relied upon for tasteful bass music, and Make It Good is no exception. While he received a big boost from dabbling in trap, Shift K3Y keeps this one house-y. Sexed-up vocals and piano give way to a funky groove held together by two equally-catchy basslines. The melodies here aren’t content…
