As always, our self-appointed task of supplying the underground with the most up to date news on bass music around the world has driven us into dancefloor territory. The general vibe across bass-related 4×4 music over the last couple of years has been a slow but steady push towards a more minimal approach.
Today however we are flipping the script completely as our long term compadre Faded lands on the rapidly rising sounds of Maneki to deliver a brimming new bassline belter.
We have been keeping a close eye on the Maneki imprint since first coming across them back in 2019 with the launch of their ‘Maneki Frequencies’ mix series. Since then the label has come on leaps and bounds, pulling together a very exciting roster who continue to deliver damaging dancefloor delights.
Their collaborator today is of course Faded, a long term associate of the 3000 brand, who has kept up a steady run of releases over the past couple of years,making us even keener to get stuck into this one!
When we get into the business of breaking down the track itself, we feel this is a very good showcasing of exactly what Maneki are all about, as Faded delivers a substantially more explosive creation that have we been covering in recent times. It’s a meteor strike of a riddim, letting loose an electrifying array of LFO-based synthesizer lines, which cause havoc amidst a jumpy selection of 4×4 drum arrangements and a constantly shifting sense of atmosphere.
It’s a track that is designed for the dance, making us that little bit more keen get back into the rave as the understanding of lockdown continues to develop in it’s obscurity.
We have attached Faded’s preview upload of the track below, so that you can take it in before tomorrow’s official release date!
