Sexy…Bassy…Glitchy…Wobbly…Fifty minutes long…what’s not to love about this mix from Seattles own, Pressha? After getting back from Envision Music Festival in Costa Rica and being surrounded by artists such as Gladkill, Chris B, Ill-Esha, KllSmth, and Russ Liquid, I’ve been on a serious glitch-hop/sexy bass hunt. Luckily, I’m not the only one who’s been feeling the energy of the gorgeous tunes coming from countless artists across the West Coast. This mix Pressha released through BassDrop on 4/20 is absolutely ridiculous. Whatever it is you’re doing at the moment will probably get that much better as soon as you click play and tune into the sounds that have been inspiring one of Seattles most well known bass DJ’s. FIRST, here are a few words from Pressha himself regarding Everything In Moderation.
“When I set out to make this, I wanted to make a sequel to Sex to make Dubstep to. I found myself wanting to push a very similar sound but yet the tempo increased as I chose tracks I wanted to use over and over. Midtempo and Sexy Bass music has taken a stronger hold of me than I expected and it comes through on this. There are a few unreleased tracks by a couple of my favorite producers at the moment, the whole thing is meant to be played and replayed while making love, partying, enjoying the sunset, and just generally anything that makes you feel good inside.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it for you.”

Oh man, just featured on Matty G’s beatport chart and released on halloween comes Knowing by Distance. For starters, this tune would’ve been perfect for a halloween post haha. Knowing has got a lot of eerie synths, but above all… the bassline is absolutely filthy. Distance absolutely kills it with this one, have a listen below and check out Matty G’s Back to the Bay EP!
On a side note, check out Benga in the pink polo!
It’s rare these days to find a record shop that sells any dubstep that isn’t something that has been bought out by the corporate machine. You know, all that britneystep bullshit. The majority of the sound I speak of lives online.. if not in legitimate shops that sell vinyl which likely call London, home. Fortunately, I live in a place in which a record shop that specializes in Metal, Dub and Reggae can thrive. Believe it or not, there are DJs in Seattle that still spin vinyl.
So while perusing and purchasing some sounds new and old, I was gifted a sampler CD sponsored by none other than… yup, you guessed it. SCION. Now I don’t know if it helps them sell any cars, but they sure as hell can pick some legitimate tunes.
This particular compilation showcases Caspa’s own recording label, Dub Police. Established in 2004 during the early ages of the genre, Dub Police has been committed to seeking out and aiding in the development and drive of the globe’s best bass music artists. With names like Matty G, LD, Orien, L-Wiz, Emalkay, Trolley Snatcha, and Subscape among others, Dub Police has brought to the world a colossal lineup of artists for which I am truly thankful. Check below for a comprehensive listing of the tunes from the sampler and be sure to check back for the newest Dub Police releases on Ganjaology.org
Lets give a big round of applause to Matty G, Dub Police’s Californian connection. He put this preview out his upcoming EP, Back To The Bay, on the Dub Police SoundCloud just less than 24 hours ago. Matty G has always been a pioneer in the dubstep world, and this group of songs proves just how innovative his sounds truly are. This collection is less on the club banger side and more on the chilled out , hip-hop influenced, West coast, swag all day, dubstep tip. It’s a nice side of Matty G’s music to experience and it’s an incredible EP! I heard the release date is the 31st of this month, but we’ll see…
