What’s good everyone…
As I’ve recently mentioned, I have been planning on expanding the musical palette of the blog to include more of the music I love to listen to rather than featuring purely bassweight dubstep. There’s plenty of music that embodies the ethos of Bassweight Society so it’s time to keep things moving forward. From here on out I will be using Tuesday as a platform for current/forthcoming releases falling under the 120 bpm formula. I chose today to kick things off with the house music for a very specific reason, and that being a friend of mine from university has just dropped his most recent single on petFood Recordings, featuring two seriously deep and funky tunes that will set any dance off in an ugly-bumping frenzy.
Throughout 2012 Steve Huerta has firmly cemented his position as one of LA’s most sought after new artist after releasing tracks like ‘Take Me Closer’ on the Amadeus imprint and his collaboration with Prince Club ‘Cant Let Go’ which has received support from the likes of Catz ‘N’ Dogz, Waze and Odyssey, and Droog among others. With this petFood release dropping today and his collaborative EP with Urulu on Dirt Crew Recordings lined up for later this week, 2013 is already looking out to be a monumental year for Steve’s career in the House music scene. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for this guy.

This track is one of the biggest panty-droppers I’ve heard in awhile. Things are kicked off with precision percussive sequences accompanied by brilliantly formulated atmospheres, setting the stage for a funk-infused bassline made for the gods to move to. Steve’s ability to process vocal samples in such a surreal manner is notably seen throughout this track as they soulfully bounce from left-to-right in the mix, adding elements of euphoria to the lucky listener’s night. It’s just an all-around feel good jam that, as I said above, is an absolute panty-dropper.
With a slowed, and slightly darker approach to this beat whilst still keeping the mood high, he once again champions his vocal sampling along with uplifting organs and funk-ridden grooviness. There are so many intricate elements lurking throughout the mix, from the looping sample of what seems to be chopped-up background noise of a party, to the distantly enchanting pads that ominously rise. I think you’ll truly understand why I used the term ‘darker’ once you hear the bassline drop through. I definitely imagine this one playing late-night when things start to get weird and freaky in the green room.
