As we draw towards the close of 2018, we can look back and say that this year was quite possibly bass music’s strongest episode so far, with festival stages around the country being stacked with representatives, radio stations taking a 4×4 hammering and the raves being dominated by bass DJs. One of the most notable names to be involved in this continued growth of the scene is none other than Sheffield’s own: Deadbeat UK.

J Fella is back at it again with another belter entitled ‘Gassin Ya’. Sonically this seems to be his muckiest release yet and whilst it treads familiar territory with shimmering, bell-heavy leads and vocal samples, the range of sounds utilize in this single makes for head-scratches and screwfaces.

Einstein is said to have described creativity as “intelligence having fun”. This is a quote that really carries some weight once you’re acclimated with artists such as Hertfordshire’s Esskay.
