Monday Recovery Session

How goes it, everyone?  Our apologies for the lack of a new post, we’ve been recovering from partying with TRUTH all weekend.  We are hoping that everybody had as good of a weekend as Bassweight Society did!  We were fortunate enough to receive an ABSOLUTE rinse out by TRUTH on Thursday at the EOS Lounge in Santa Barbara, CA.  Then, to top the cake with icing, we took him into Isla Vista to show all those UCSB students how Dubstep gets thrown down in the most proper of fashions.  Personally, we believe that there couldn’t be a better place to listen to some of the most amazing tunes than on a deck, overlooking the ocean 🙂  MASSIVE shout out to TRUTH for supporting BWS and playing those shows for us!  It was definitely one of the most amazing weekends we have had in a long time.

Taking heed to the fact that we are all still hurting from the partying this weekend, we want to highlight some music that, although still weighty on the low-end, has a soothing effect on the mind and body.

The first track we have for everyone is a track done by Starkey.  The tune is called ‘Open The Pod Bay Doors’ and was released October 31, 2011 on Ninja Tune.  This tune embodies Starkey’s signature sounds to the fullest extent.  The spacey ambiance of this song along with the break patterned drums compliment each other wonderfully.  This is a song that you close your eyes to and let your imagination take you away.  The video goes with the music perfectly, might we add.

The second track we’re bringing to you is a remix by Synkro from Manchester, across the pond in the UK.  The original of this song was written by The XX, and is called ‘Night Time’.  On its own this song is already absolutely amazing.  We believe that it is very rare that the remix of such an amazing piece of artistic expression, is of equal quality.  This here remix is one of those.  The emotion that is captured by Synkro in his take on the song is explicit and unrivaled.  Listening to this song takes you on a journey of introspect and forgotten memories.  We hope you’ll enjoy this as much as we do.

The XX – Night Time (Synkro Remix)

The final track we’re bringing ya’ll, out of respect for this past weekend, is a release by TRUTH from their Stranger Than Fiction EP that was released back in 2010.  The track, called ‘Stay’, is one of the most relaxing Dubstep rollers that we have come across in our day!  The tune is filled with the utmost soulful vibes!  The vocals on this track bring us back to early childhood days, hearing the funky sounds of groups like Love Unlimited.  Press play and let the music fill your soul with this one.

TRUTH – Stay (Disfigured Dubz)

Alright everybody, until next time.  Hope you enjoy the tunes.  Get out there and support your favorite artists by purchasing their music and spreading their sounds around the globe!!

 

p.s. BIG UP to our boy Chadillac for the logo you see at the top!!

Peace.

The West Coast Don: Matty G

Happy Halloween all you bass fiends!!  Hope everybody had a great weekend.  Bassweight Society had an amazing time at ‘Escape From Wonderland’ in San Bernadino, CA on Saturday night!

For today’s post we are highlighting an artist who we can, without a doubt, say is constantly igniting sparks of hope for the US dubstep scene.  The Santa Cruz, California artist Matty G has truly shown a relentless attempt to “..take it back to the soul, to try and represent America’s art form a little better.”  This attempt has become much more of an actuality.  His manner of stylistically incorporating the West Coast into his tunes, arguably, cannot be matched by any other producer in the US. With early hits like ‘50,000 Watts’ and ‘My 808’ there is a reason he is the only West Coast producer signed to the famed UK label, ‘Dub Police’, along with many of dubstep’s other heavy hitters. From his earlier productions to his upcoming EP, we at Bassweight Society are proud of the milestones Matty G has set for US dubstep and the West Coast.

Matty’s most recent release, the ‘Back To The Bay’ EP exhibits some of his most talented work yet.  Every single tune on this release is absolutely MASSIVE.  Please show some support for this man as he continues to keep the US on the map by pushing sounds and styles that are unlike any others.  Here’s a link that you can purchase this EP at: http://www.surus.co.uk/dub-police-records/back-to-the-bay-ep-15237.aspx .

Again, please support by purchasing this EP.

That’s it for today everyone.  Hope you enjoy the sounds!  Make sure to stay tuned, we have interviews with some amazing artists coming your way.

One love.

-Bassweight Society.
