As bass music grows and expands, so does the will to explore of those producing it. Genre-wise, bass music as a concept is becoming a worldwide phenomenon, with countries and states around the world all wanting tog get involved and add their own unique twists and turns. It is only natural therefore that the idea of travelling, outside of music and purely for discovery is something a lot of musicians find themselves wanting to do. The idea of taking in new experiences and beholding new cultures is a source of discovery that goes hand in hand with inspiration in any creative field.

As a term, “World Music” has become quite a broad descriptive term. To us it seems as though the term is pretty much a blanket description for anything that fits outside of typical western genre brackets, so we tend to hear a lot of African and Asian original sounds fall into the category when we start to dig a little deeper.

It’s safe to say that the last 3 years or so have seen the absolute height of bass music around the world, with UK bassline’s revival prompting a massive rise in worldwide interest for bass heavy goodness. In this time we have seen a tonne of artists rise to nationwide and worldwide popularity, but we have to take a second to look at those who have been doing this since before the bass explosion of 2016.

Over the last 18-24 months, we have noticed a serious influx of breakbeat influence slowly but surely drip feeding its way into the more mainstream UK Bass set up. Now before this gets misconstrued, breaks has always held an influential position within the UK dance music scene, all the way through from hardcore to jungle, however we feel the last couple years has given rise to a new, almost hybrid genre between 4×4 Bassline themes and choppy, intelligently imported breakbeat loops.

CruCast are always keeping pace these days, constantly rotating between their Goliath roster, made up of both seriously established heavyweights such as Skepsis, Bru-C & Darkzy, along with rapidly rising stars such as MPH, Nubass and more. Today we are here to take a peek at the latest offering from Cajama, a name which has known nothing but growth over the last 18 months, primarily due his top draw work rate and serious ability to build bangers. The Doncaster based producer has gained a pretty reputable fan base, now boasting nearly 7.5K on his personal SoundCloud page, and seeing his original ‘Atmo’ become a part of the ‘Pure Bassline Anthems’ CD, mixed by UK legends DJQ & Jamie Duggan.

At threethousand.co.uk we don’t half like to go on about producers and their incredible skillsets. However, we feel that we have been somewhat unfair to those who control one of the most crucial elements of any banger, the vocalists. Within bass music, there is often a theme of ‘Oh it needs a vocal’, which is often the case, however the idea of just have ‘A Vocal’ is just a bit disrespectful for the art form, especially when the vocals will often bring in an entirely new audience.

It’s always a very pleasing sight to see veterans get their overdue plaudits, and we definitely feel that what we are looking at today is the perfect example of that as we see UK bass legend Bass Boy join forces with the West Coast behemoth: Night Bass. This is another fantastic nod towards Anglo-American bass relations, as we see more and more of our UK brethren cross the waters to get involved with the international scene, drawing ever more attention to our thriving community this side of the ocean.

At 3000 we are always keen to keep up to date with the full range of genres that co-exist within the bass music bracket, including everything from dubstep to bass house. Today we are looking more towards the latter as we touch down for a peek at the latest offering from the super popular Bunny Tiger Dubs imprint, based out in Berlin. Boasting a 70k follower base on their SoundCloud, they clearly have a reputation for putting out some top quality releases across the dance music spectrum.

Today we are heading up the road to Leeds as we decide to take a peek at the latest drop from heavy 4×4 producer and DJ Mikey B, a name which needs little introduction, having been one of the most consistent names working in and around the bassline scene in the north for quite a substantial period of time.

Creativity is what we strive to discover here at threethousand.co.uk. Bass music is a busy marketplace, filled with thousands of replicants following very few original sound-smiths, which can often give the impression that there is a serious lack of originality. However, today we are going to be looking at the England to Poland based duo of Negativ, who defy the above themes time and time again, championing their unique blend of breaks and bass.

We are loving the bass scene at the moment, as we wade through the summer sun encountering heavyweight drop after heavyweight drop from both high flying imprints and rising projects. Today we are back at it to take a peek at the latest drop from Urban Music, a Label project headed up by Dee with the vision to promote and lush heavyweight underground dance music.

At 3000 we have been really trying to expand the coverage of grime, dubstep and everything in between, so when we saw this brand new drop from the very well respected Sector 7 imprint drop late last night, we simply had to sit down and take in the previews there and then. The label itself has become seen as one of the scene’s most forward thinking projects, championing the 140 hybrid sound between steppers and grime, focussing primarily on eerie originals with pounding sub structures below, proven to cause havoc in the dance.

Due to the massive amount of content I receive through 3000 submissions, JunoDownload reviews, Southpoint networking and Trickstar Radio playlisting, I find myself witha massive stack of new music every month, often with some hidden gems. All too often I find these tracks going under the radar as I have nowhere to discuss them.

We are back once again on threethousand.co.uk with another exclusive edition of Charted, the article series in which we invite along a range of different producers and DJ’s to showcase the tracks they are feeling the most. We have seen some fantastic names get involved in this one and that theme is set to continue today Tengu arrives with a weighty listing.

It’s been a little while since we last heard from our boy Albzzy, a producer who seems to constantly grow and evolve with the times, commanding a very strong social media presence and having the tracks to back it every step of the way. In the last year we have seen him leap across the pond on tour, but now he is back doing what he does best, and that is creating bangers for us all to enjoy.

It’s always good to see the hard work paying off. At threethousand.co.uk we have a real focus on pushing those who really put the effort in, and we definitely feel that Livsey is one of those people. Through a combination of behind the scenes jobs such as top quality video design and being one of the hottest producers to grace the UK bass scene in a hot minute, seeing him progress and move forward is always a joyous experience.

We are loving watching the UK bass scene’s expansion, seeing a wealth of new artists blossom and new project flourish. One label we have seen putting together some fantastically consistent material is none other than the Low End. We have been keeping a pretty close eye on the Birmingham based imprint in recent times, seeing them smash together eight fantastic initial releases, showcasing the best of bass music within the UK scene and beyond.

Well well, as we continue our delving into 140BPM based music, we have had the absolute pleasure of stumbling upon this latest project from Gemmy, a producer who is held in seriously high regard within both the dubstep and grime communities, primarily for his fantastic work showcasing the “Purple” sound. 
Today we are back in action with Ryuken yet again with another storming guest mix, exclusive to the 3000 Bass SoundCloud page. Having worked closely with the team at Bingo Bass in recent months, when we saw this selection land in the inbox it was a no brainer that we simply had to get involved.

What a fantastic year it has been for garage and funky, with both of the genres managing to work their way heavily back into the pillars of popular bass culture, with both genres becoming the breeding grounds for the latest wave of exciting electronic dance music producers.

Within the UK scene, we have seen an absolute explosion of futuristic UKG flavours over the past 18 months, with a number of new producers spreading their wings and finding their fortunes in the gold mine that is garage. One of the producers in this bracket we have been keeping a serious eye on is On1.

It’s been a hell of a year for Bushbaby, a Brighton based producer who has shot to fame through his incredible production style and unique take on a range of different bass music styles. Since emerging in 2015 with a breaksy Southpoint EP, he has since become seen as somewhat of a household name within the UK dance music scene, traversing multiple styles and blessing us all with a number of lively DJ performances.

As ever, we are keen to keep up to date with Moony and the projects he gets involved with. As a true veteran of the UK underground, we have seen him effortlessly traverse between grime, bass, garage and funky over the years, leaving his distinctive mark on each genre and gaining a pretty loyal fanbase whilst he has been at it.

Over the last few years we have seen the legendary Punks imprint swarm and rush to the front of the bass scene within the UK and beyond, as they continue to pioneer and champion the space between space and breaks. We have seen them put together one of the most exciting artist rosters currently active and they have just added to it again as they bring forward 9TRANE for an inevitably storming single.

At 3000, we are always keen to look into whatever the next big thing is going to be. Within bass music we are currently within a period of serious transition, as we find artists moving away from the standardized bassline sound and into new areas of inspiration, one of those being the very exciting tech hybrid sound.

Now, right from the jump I want to say this isn’t the type of article I write very often. It’s rare that I can find myself so enthused about a single production outfit and their output over such a short period of time, but I felt I had to make the exception with today’s piece.
We have had a lot of fun since starting up threethousand.co.uk by building and designing a selection of new series’s that are able to capture and encapsulate the UK bass scene that we are so proud to represent. We have had some fantastic quickfire interviews, premieres and Charted releases in the past, all helping us build towards the fantastic platform we have now.
