Bass music as a whole has been undergroing a serious transition over the past 18-24 months, as is pretty clear to see. The split we have seen emerge is similar to that of the dubstep movement during it’s expansion into American territory, as the more racous side of the sound became even more intense, with the more sub-heavy side of the spectrum became even spaceier and more focussed on subtly and progression. That second sound is where we find ourselves today as we head over the super-consistent Supersize camp for a look at Jake Compton’s brand new heater.
Since he first emerged onto the Brighton bass scene, Jake Compton has supplied us with a very steady run of unique sounding compisitions, fitting in nicely between the more tearout sounds of bassline and the stripped back designs of tech house with a very personalized production approached. In regards to Supersize, they are in the running for one of the most impressive imprints to emerge over the past two years, with a high quality apporach that has seen numerous releases hit the shelves with a serios bang.
Today’s outing sees Jake Compton deliver them a powerful tech piece, which is as progressive as they come. The track begins with a spacey introduction, packed with verbed out percussive taps, leading towards a heads down techy roller, packed with steadily expansive rhythmic elements and a system smashing sub-line below. As the track progresses more and electronic synth ideas begin to emerge, including a ear-catching melodic twist around the 90 second mark. It’s a great outing from the young Brightonian who continues to impress more and more with every release that emerges.
