Happy Holidaze! We’ve got some brand new fire to help heat up your sub on this fine memorial day weekend from Pericles, one of the funkiest southern bass magicians you’ll find in the States. Currently residing in South Carolina, Pericles has been hard at work putting all the finishing touches on his upcoming album, Ancient Desert, which is being released through Vermin Street on the 19th of June. This track Portal Hopping is the first official preview of what’s in store to kick start everyones summer vibes. This song has truly caught my attention. From the full bodied synths to the immense drums, all the way down to the most subtle sweeps and clicks, Portal Hopping has everything plus more to keep the song flowing like liquid and still hit as hard as a hammer. If this doesn’t help set off your summer then I don’t know what will! Stay tuned for a full album review and extended write up of Ancient Desert next month. Big ups Pericles! Big ups Vermin Street!
Womp! Womp! Zoom! CRASH! Boing! Boing! REWIIIIIIIIIIIIIND! The Polish Ambassador has been brought to town (Seattle) by Bassdrop to throw down some grimy, glitchy, funky, sexy, and EXTRA spacey bassy beats. You had better make sure that only thing on your agenda tonight is to get your ass on the dance floor at Neumos. Tickets are only $15, so no excuses not to show. On top of having one of California’s finest in the building, the opening line up is off the hook too! With Tonzafun and Sunny Chiba representing Seattle, and Glitch & Swagga coming in from Wenatchee, WA, there will be nonstop incredible tracks back to back…to back…to back…to…back. See ya’ll there!
Biome is one of my favorite producers right now. He has such a deep dark sound that may seem quieter but is it ever bass heavy. This one is a bit more hype than his usual feel. Check out this UK producers tune entitled Back To Reality, its a dope one.
Haze aka FuntCase has been doing major things in the dubstep scene. With his massive remix of Plan B’s track “Ill Manners” and his new Haze EP that he just released today, 2012 is looking to be his biggest year yet. Signed to Circus Recs for his FuntCase stuff, and to True Tiger for this Haze EP its impossible for someone to overlook this guys talent. The man has a bunch of stuff online, from his humorous tour videos touring around with circus, to the extensive list of tracks and live sets – all of it is good. This track is the first track off his Haze EP and it’s probably my favorite. From the hilarious “HA” sample in the drop to his deep funky wobs, haze kills the track and instantly gets my head bobbin. Check out this dubstep masterpiece and honestly check out more of his stuff if you haven’t already, he’s pure class.
