From the onset of “Believe,” longstoryshort entrances listeners with mesmerizing vocal chops atop of budding layers of oscillating bass. Chock-full of everything we know and love about bass-house, longstoryshort seems to elevates the genre one step further with his own added flair. The UK garage and drum & bass inspired artist combines his affinity for the genres into a unique style entirely his own. Transcending genre with each and every release, longstoryshort refuses to write the same song over and over again. Listen to “Believe” today.
"I don't always post bass, but when I do I prefer LOUDPVCK" - the most interesting man in the world. Well there you have it folks if the most interesting man digs it then I think you will too. But in all seriousness sometimes you just need to double down on that extra db of sub and Botnek and LOUDPVCK have both dug a deep hole, laid concrete and bunkered down in the bass hall of fame. Their new single "Traffic" is full of grimy goodness that's ready to get you hype for the weekend. Like all LOUDPVCK tunes you can expect it to come with a smirk, and this one features several vocal samples and extra add-ons that keep you saying where the fvck is this track is going to go. I thought this track was extra unique and decided to share so hope you like it too. You can nab this across the digital audio spectrum here. LA you can also catch LOUDPVCK coming up next Saturday 3/4 at Exchange LA - get tickets here.
Damn Joyryde is simply crushing release after release. "Hot Drum" is yet another example of why Joyryde's meteoric rise in the last year is fully justified. The swag, sheer amount and precision of the various samples used throughout his records add a bombastically explosive quality that just cannot be tamed. "Hot Drum" prominently features a reggae steel drum sample in the chorus that comes out of nowhere, but somehow still fits like a glove. The record manages to calm down for a short oriental sounding breakdown, before winding back up for the end. I'm super excited for his LA debut at Control Sept 23rd. Hope to see all the LA bass heads ready to rock and roll. You can see the epic video and grab the download for this track on his website here.
VenessaMichaels has been putting together a breakout catalogue over the last few months. From first making our Best of 2015 list, to putting out her and MOONZz's incredible "Killing Me Softly" cover, to rocking our SXSW 2016 showcase and NOW this killer new original "Really Like (feat. Effy)." What else can we say? Did I hear the term rising star get thrown around the office when her name was brought up? Well dive into her new single and enjoy. Starting super vibey with piano and Effy's heavenly voice, we're quickly bobbing and weaving around this record with synth stabs, light and jovial fills, energetic vox chops and moving bass. The track stays groovy through the end leaving us puffed up like a big ole bubble of big league chew. Something about the cover art must have inspired that gum analogy. Anyways you can nab this fun single fo FREE right here.
I don't always post tracks like this, but this morning .... this is definitely my current feels! I have not left for the office just yet, but I know I am in for a day of everlasting frustration & anxiety ... so it feels most appropriate to start things off by getting fuckin low and throwing some trap arms! Philly producer 5 & A Dime drops his new original mix "Loud" for all the dubstep and bass house feels. It's dirty, it's aggressive, and lives up to its name .....loud! I just put the volume at 10 and blasted .... the neighbors are gonna be pissed! You can grab a free download HERE!
