Check’n some of the first editions to the new Bass page at junodownload….here are some fine selections:

shit yeah, hell yeah


Following huge releases from Digi G’Alessio and Stabber in recent months, Crookers’ Lucky Beard imprint comes through with another EP of weird and wonderful yet heavy bass hybrids. “Skills” takes a house structure and flips it round with its skeletal beats and vocal samples and thundering low-end, while “Crafting” takes 808 percussion and wraps it up in some moody bass rumble. “Thief”, “Mage” and “Warrior” meanwhile opt for some dubstep-style half-time action, which despite their hip-hop shapes are undeniably heavy beasts.

…and this is a great album::

Already a respected figure in the underground of his home turf in Japan, XLII delivers his first extended release outside his country on Civil Music, who can always be counted on to deliver the most unclassifiable bass shapes. Throwing brittle 808 beats into the mix with half-time tempos, off kilter dubstep basslines and tweaked out, scattershot samples, one need look no further than the footwork vibes of “No Cure” and the thudding bass weight of “Rasclap” for proof of the man’s talents. Ean’s frantic juke reworking and Broken Haze’s abrasive take on “Dilated” provide serious thrills, though it’s Starkey’s tense, sparse reworking of “Thro Yo!” and the crazed, slapbass styles of NcLoving really deliver the goods.

…all this shiz coming ‘rascal recommended!’
