It’s no secret that we are serious fans of the Strictly Flava movement, having taken an interest in nearly every release they have put together over the last 12 months!

There have been a lot of new artists to emerge over the last year or so from the so called ‘UKG revival movement’, a lot of which have been creating some truly incredible stuff.

The relationship between vocalist and instrumentalist is rarely talked about outside the realms of “rap”. You’ll notice the use of quotation marks as I refer to the action rather than the genre – an action prevalent across many forms of music in 2019 – ranging from House, to Jazz, to Country music.
Presenting April’s edition of ‘The 3000 Selection’ our guide to the hottest tracks we think you should be paying attention to, all brought to you on a monthly basis courtesy of our very own bass connoisseur Pundit.

What a wonderful time it really is for bass music in general around the entire breadth of the UK. We live in a time of mass collaboration and genre fusion, something we are absolutely adoring to witness. Around the country we see different cities pushing for different styles of fusion also, with a lot of Brighton based pushing a futuristic techy twist on bassline and cities such as Nottingham pushing the funky bass hybrid sound.

At 3000 we can admit that we often put a bit too much emphasis onto the DJ’s and producers of the scene. However, we felt it was time we made an effort to highlight the MC’s, vocalists and hosts who work in and around UK bass culture, being one of the most important elements of a decent rave. A host’s job is to conduct the dance, assist in the build up of energy and be the human point of engagement between a crowd and a DJ and it is a skill that is far too often overlooked.

We are truly blessed to live in an era in which bass music is allowed to roam so freely. Throughout the years we have heard genres evolve and styles develop around the world, culminating in the fantastic population of underground dance music genres that fill both our playlists and airwaves today.

As ever with Southpoint, it’s quite difficult to keep up with the mass of content that they appear to be able to put together. As a label, they are one of the few projects currently active who are able to really traverse between grime, bass, dubstep, breaks, funky and garage with relative ease and without anything seeming forced. The main reason for this is their incredibly diverse roster, from the techy stylings of front runner Bushbaby, to the UKG know-how of Moony and Movement, to the grimey insights of KXVU, Jakebob & Dubzta, just to name a few off the top of the head.

We work in an era of bass music in which we see projects rise and fall more regularly than ever. The UK sound is changing and keeping up with that change without losing your roots is without a doubt the hardest thing for any record label to do.

Within the UK bass scene, we sit an a pivotal point between saturation and expansion, as we start to see some of our biggest homegrown starts hit mega stats on the world scale. Perfect examples of this are acts such as Skepsis and Holy Goof heading around America on tour with Jauz, Bushbaby and Taiki Nulight heading up their own tours around Australia and a tonne of other UK artists making major headway around the European festival circuit.

It’s no secret at this point that we are massive fans of what the Strictly Flava is up to. Over the last year or so we have seen them put together a string of fantastic, original and forward thinking UKG releases, perfect for adding a dash of life to a party of any kind. Who doesn’t like a bit of wavy UKG at the end of the day? Since their inception we have seen fantastic drops with artists such as Kobe JT, Witchdoctor, Minista, On1 and host of other names who are all representing the new school garage movement.
