Slime Presents ‘Basswave 2’ : 26 Tracks Of Next Level Bass | Slime Recordings

Featuring the best of their past 50 or so releases, Basswave 2 is the culmination of an outstanding year for Slime Recordings. The vibe is deep and eclectic with tribal, melancholic, soulful and heavyweight bases covered in the pick of the year’s releases.

Slime have had a swarm of impressive debuts this year, notably from the likes of Akin and Vausz to name just two – as well as a number of important releases from established artists such as Partyson and Totte. The bar is high, and that is reflected by the quality of the tracks on this compilation.

If you are new to this imprint then you could do much worse than start with this release – before you inevitably go sifting through their back catalog for their other quality releases.

Available on Juno from the 7th of January

Soundproof & Dubfreq – Bear Brawler/Aurora 7 | Soundproof Recordings

Soundproof and Dubfreq collaborate on this jagged and sinister dubstep release. Both tracks inhabit the same aural spectrum with guttural basses growling over ear-smashing  drops, with some fantasitically intricate distortion going on. Bear Brawler is the louder piece, with Aurora 7 bringing a minimal deep space vibe. Highly recommended.

Bill Sykes – Dirty Old Man | TNC

Mancunian Bill Sykes stars as a filth-infested geriatric pest in this wickedly creepy new video. Eschewing Hip Hop in it’s purest form, this head nodding track is funkier than an unwashed catheter tube with Bill’s lyrical delivery coming grimier than your grandma’s windowsills. Help the aged and support this video!

Street Treasures – Ashes57 | Free E-book

For this christmas, bass music photographer and street art connoisseur Ashes57 has gifted us this incredible collection of shots taken between 2006 and 2009 in the cities of New York, London & Berlin. Available in a nicely flickable PDF format, the works included are inspirational and at times amusingly controversial.

After peeping this make sure you check Ashes57’s Flickr for some great portraits and concert photography from TNGHT, Mala, Boiler Room & more.

Burial – Truant/Rough Sleeper | Hyperdub

Yes, Burial is back. This is his first outing since the Kindred EP, which marked a subtle change of stylistics for this elusive producer. As beautifully crafted as ever, these two tracks are as surprising and satisfying as we have come to expect. With no hint or any threat that he is about to start selling out or falling off, I don’t even need to tell you to buy this – most of you will already have made that decision before you even clicked on this page.
