Promise One – ‘See We Roll’ EP [EARZ004]

Open Earz Promise One

 

1. Promise One feat. Sparkz – See We Roll
2. Promise One & Geode – Chroma
3. DIGI – Promise One – Ghost Note

———

Ez everyone.  After a hefty hiatus, Syte has resurfaced his Open Earz imprint with one of the underground’s most talented rising figures, Promise One.  Marking Nick’s third release since his 2011 debut, there is a distinct evolution apparent throughout his sound design – a sense of cohesiveness and clarity that signals the dawn of strong legacy.  The triple track release puts forth two to physical and three to digital, pleasing both sides of the dichotomous format landscape.  Joining forces with Mancunian vocalist, Sparkz, a member of the Voodoo Black trio who can also be spotted running the mic for The Mouse Outfit, ‘See We Roll’ is a dancefloor gem with its vacillating bass variations and entangled percussion being attentively navigated with cunning dialect.  The flip comes with an entirely different flavor as Promise One shares the buttons with Geode, who has been redefining boundaries of his own under the roof of his collective effort imprint, Chord Marauders.  ‘Chroma’ taps into a more soulful and melodic archive with pitched down vocal cuts and synthetic key progressions complemented with shuffling hat rides and lush, spacious pads that give the mix an enduring warmth.  The digital exclusive, ‘Ghost Note’, comes strong with a dreadnaught dissonance vibe.  Phase-drenched synths syncopate across the soundfield with panning and delay as their main mechanisms of movement.  The anomalous atmospheres and guttural sub-pressure compliment the cyborg apocalypse quite nicely, might I add.

Steve Huerta – ‘Do Good To Me/Revenge’ [PETFOOD035]

petFood 035 Final Artwork

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.

Do Good To Me ||

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.

Revenge ||

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.

Release Highlight – Asa & Stumbleine Your Secret EP

 

Hello fellow brothers and sisters. Hope your weekend was everything you needed to focus on the things that bring balance to your life.  Last night Kinman and myself embarked on some bass-ridden madness as we stomped it out in proper fashion to ultra selector J:Kenzo.  Big up to the SMOG family for booking him and letting him rinse out on a proper system, it was definitely a night of high grade riddims.  Kenzo displayed his mastery at his art as he smashed in one tune after another.  He laid the intro of his set with a tune that spoke to the crowd in almost hypnotic brainwashing sense, with creepy computerized vocals leading into a smashing low end foundation.  he played tune after tune that I’d never heard before, tunes that hopefully we’ll see in circulation in the near future.  Highlight tunes that I could actually remember included LX One – You VIP, some big ass Kenzo tune with Footsie spitting over it, and the massive Distance remix of Ruffhouse.  All in all Kenzo displayed flawless skills mixing in one bassline after another.  It was a big night, big up to J:Kenzo and Kelly Dean from Smog for bringing heat to the speaker boxes.

With that out of the way, I want to introduce a couple artists we’ve never mentioned before and highlight their 5 track EP that dropped today.  On a beautiful, soulful, mellow tip this album is a great way to start the week and focus on all the beauty around you.  Introducing, Asa & Stumbleine, UK based artists hailing from Bristol; their EP Your Secret released today on Inspected Records and it is one that you should definitely lend an ear to.  Every tune on the album brings something unique to the table while maintaining an essential central theme that’s displayed by their style of production.  This is atmospheric, emotionally provoking music that displays a truly high calibre of musical showmanship.

The first tune titled Vapour opens the album with a soft trickling snare lead into a lovely string composure and light cracking drum pattern with background echoing vocals.  For 7 minutes the tune takes you to another place as the atmospheric ambiance provokes you to think.  The next tune Glow, finds its base around a solid kick drum and a looping vocal sample.  The piano and low end strings guide the tune continuing the journey.  The third tune titled Tourniquet displays collaborating vocals from Shura & Coma.  As the keys and strings build in the middle of the tune the vocals mesh with the bass line to push things to another level.  Tinderbox, the fourth tune on the EP, is the mellowest tune of the bunch in my opinion.  Amazing quality, reminds me of a rainy day.  Without You, the last tune, has a lot of low end pressure with a steady bass line filling the speakers controlling the vibe of the tune.  The tune steadily builds until around the 4 minute mark where it slowly leads the listener out the dream, with rain falling in the background.  This is a great EP and an amazing display of a lot of skill and emotion put into every tune.  Be sure to give it a good listen and go out and support the artists by purchasing the record.

Asa, Stumbleine – Your Secret EP

Big up to Asa & Stumbleine. You can bet that we will be following closely these two and hopefully have some new material or an interview feature with them in the near future.  I’ll leave all our family off today with a free tune by them that they upped on their soundcloud a couple months back.  An original by Stumbleine titled More Than Words with Asa on the remix.

Make sure to big up Asa & Stumbleine for the freebie.  Hope you enjoyed the post, thanks as always for checking in!

Olie Bassweight FREEBIE!

Yo what up fam!  I usually like to take the weekends off from the site but I was contacted by Olie last night and I didn’t want to hold off until Monday for this one.  He has been generous enough to share this remix he recently did with us and all of his fans.

This jam is a soulful stepper riddim’.  Beautiful vocals and grooved out drum sequencing set the stage for a combination of hard-hitting sub frequencies and a piano riff that will hit home for anybody.

Enjoy the tune, big up Olie, and spread the sounds!  We will see you back tomorrow.

F*CK YEAH! For Fridays

The weekend is finally here.  Time to bust out Grandpas cough syrup and get stepping!  Today’s music is a very eclectic mix.  The first track, hailing from one of the best producers of the past 2011 year, Kahn, is a remix of an extremely HARD track by Killa P & Badness.  Kahn puts his touch on it and turns into an absolute gangster anthem.  A bit different from Kahn’s typical purpley dance vibes, but it still captures the production talents that this guy has, no doubt.  Tunnidge holds the torch for this next tune.  A foundation-style approach on this one gives it longevity and class.  Somewhere amidst his time spent rendering artistic portrayals of those fortunate enough to get a release on Deep Medi, this long time contender has created another musical gem.  He’s about to embark on a tour over here on the west coast so make sure to check out the tour dates on his Facebook page so you can catch one of his shows!  He is stopping in San Francisco, so all the heads up north, DON”T MISS OUT!  Commodo put out another forthcoming tune just recently, and as you would expect, it’s a BANGER.  Commodo was the first artist we ever highlighted here at BWS, back when he was first signed on as a member of the Deep Medi family.  It’s been sometime since we’ve gotten wind of a tune that will see a release but, after hearing this tune it was definitely worth the wait.  The shuffle-ly drum sequence sets up nice for the rest of the tune.  The synth leads about halfway in are really sick, so hold tight.  Today, we thought there could be no better song to ease you into the weekend than one of Authors latest productions.  These two just cannot stop putting out top-notch music.  Some of the most soulful vibes accompanied by the cleanest mixdowns.  It’s really exciting when you imagine what these guys will be coming up with over the next year, because they are undoubtedly some of the most talented musicians on an individual level, and once they come together,  it’s like they’re the only ones with a gun at the knife fight.  Massive respect to Author, and if you somehow see this, COME TO THE STATES PLEASE!!!!!

Killa P & Badness – Nuh Failer (Kahn Remix)

Tunnidge – Twenty12

Commodo – Jaded

Author – You Made Mistakes Too

That about wraps it up today.  Have a sick weekend and don’t be a gangster, dance like one!

To the gods.
