First up is a SERIOUS bass monster from the one and only Borgore! But he’s only gone and recruited the Shark Squad prodigy, JAUZ and one of Manchester’s heaviest exports, Virus Syndicate for this absolute behemoth of a Dubstep joint. Borgore goes back to his roots and delivers his trade mark dark matter heavy sound, backed up by JAUZ’s blasting bass lines and Virus Syndicate dropping fire on the bars in the breakdown. Filthy, masterfully crafted Dubstep pleasure! HIT!
Next up is Ellis Meade‘s ‘In The Zone’. A proper master class in the art of rhythm and rhyme. Proclaim Knowledge puts down a stripped back Hip Hop instrumental with a heavy bass backbone creating a perfect setting for Meade to inject his intricate, intelligently conceived and deftly constructed lyrics into. I love Ellis‘s flow, the way he is able to mix up pace and tempo as well as play with the range of his voice mid bar. Beat and wordplay pair beautifully. This is Hip Hop done right. ‘In The Zone’ comes presented with simple and surreal visuals that captures the essence of the track well.
The Mouse Outfit dropped their full fat sophmore album a few weeks ago (watch out for our review incoming!). First official single and video comes from the brilliant ‘No Stoppin This’. The 9 piece Mouse Outift brings out the brass and woodwind to create another classically muscular Hip Hop composition. Sparkz and Truthos do what they do best on the bars; these two again have a serious ability on the mic and it’s an absolute joy to listen and watch the two artists play off against each other! You’ll enjoy this one!
And finally, our man, the Persian bass legend, SHEKEL is back producing music. When I saw the Facebook update the other day, I could hardly believe my eyes. This guy is one of my all time favourite bass music producers. The guy has such a clear and unique sound in a genre that is heavy on the repetition. Never, ever one to disappoint, this remix of Oren Barzilay’s ‘Boy’ is out of this world. A slightly tamer Shekel distorts and twists the original into a rendition of his own, the subtle sounds of Shekels trademark heavy Dubstep energy poke and peek through the track, giving a hint that something darker could be on its way? We’ll see!
