The Future Bass movement has taken firm footing in AC Slater‘s Night Bass shenanigans, and for good reason, it thumps. Galloping bass lines accented by walloping bass synths permeate this playlist. Curated exclusively for the dawg’s at Boomrat, it might be a choice decision to peruse before cruising to Night Bass tomorrow night (scattered in these selections are tracks from this weeks performers).

UK duo Dusky have taken it one deeper with their latest production, “4T4″, and after listening to the song all I want to do is fly away to some jungle and dance naked in the trees and never come back from the mystical land of where “4T4″ took me.
The track is beautiful, lush and entrancing – with hypnotic pads, chilling vocals, and a knocking bassline. “4T4″ will appear on the forthcoming Anjunadeep mix cd due out on August 25th. Check the rest of the tracklisting after the jump.

LA Legend Thee Mike B launched his new house-ego Brillstein earlier this year on Jesse Rose’s Play It Down label with the heavy-hitting EP Back To Bed. Filled with six tracks that perfectly capture Brillstein’s style of big, punchy house drums and hip-hop / old-school influences, the Back To Bed EP allowed for a ton of room and direction from the remix front. After Play It Down’s previous remix package (Jesse Rose’s The Whole Twelve Remixes) delivered tracks from legends and newcomers alike from all over the globe, the Play It Down vs Brillstein remix pack comes fully stacked with an all Play It Down roster. Of course label-head Jesse Rose kicks things off with his remix of “Meelo My Bro”, recent PID champion Christian Nielsen ends it with his “Je T’Adore” remix, and a few more of the label’s rotation of producers (namely Dansson, ZDS, Prince Club, and Sqim) each put their own spin on Brillstein’s tracks. It’s a wonderful showcase of how Jesse Rose, as A&R for the label, can curate such a mix of house and techno stylings while still remaining very within the Play It Down umbrella. Inevitably members of the label know how to make a track to groove to and it’s present as much as ever with the new remix package.
As a bonus, Brillstein’s fellow LA friend and producer Matpat had his way with Brillstein’s “Environmental Produce” which they’ve given to you for your downloading and listening pleasure. You can stream all six remixes below, buy them on Beatport HERE and instantly download the Matpat remix by clicking HERE.
French producer, Valy Mo, has been cranking out some soulful House and Bass-infused tunes this year, and today, he’s released a top notch 3-track EP titled Tokyo Bright on Skrillex’s free-release label, Nest. Equipped with his signature, boundary-blurring style production, Tokyo Bright ventures from pitched-down vocal House to club anthem fair to a bass’d out closing track that stands apart yet inherently belongs. He’s content with keeping his sound wide open yet finds a way to keep all of his productions within the same realm of sound.

The word festival gets thrown around extremely liberally these days, but this year’s FYF Fest is honing in on the melting pot culture that’s led to the artistic explosion in the Los Angeles area. There is so much that goes into making LA a hot spot for kooks like us; from book loving dorks, to animal friendly vegans, and rock and roll loving mad (wo)men, to vinyl aficionados, and thrift shop diving fashionistas, you best be bringing your finest eccentricities and emblazoning them proudly on your sleeve..you will be embraced. This years festival is shaping up to be a celebration of the ages as all the corkiness is coming out of the woodworks, and we’re here to dish out our “Top 10 things To Call Home About.” Continue Reading
DIY trends are everywhere these days, but today we would like to draw attention to some impressive DIY’ers who are changing the game when it comes to Audio Mastering. Eight years of research from a widely revered group of Graduate Students at Queen Mary University of London’s Centre For Technology (C4DM) yielded an amazingly intelligent audio mastering process, but it wasn’t until TandemLaunch (a small business incubator) got ahold of the rights to the research, that LANDR was able to receive the funding and infrastructure it needed to become a reality. Now, a quick ‘drag and drop’, combined with their intelligent automation process, and you’ve got a fully mastered track that would leave even the pros slightly confounded. To put it to the test, here’s an exclusive mix from Seth Troxler b2b Tiga for you to see for yourself! Continue Reading
