Now although our central focus is of course bass and house music, there is no denying that the more bass-driven side of our promotional spectrum has a complicated and exciting musical history. So many of the producers who currently lead the way in UK bass music grew up listening to and producing the original UK dubstep sound, which is why it is important for us as a platform not to ignore in incredible renaissance that we see taking place over in the realms of 140 music right now. The scene has never looked stronger and the quality of the average release we are seeing drop each week has gone through the roof.
Today we are taking a look at one of the most consistent labels out there in Foundation Audio, a tidy platform who always deliver sizzling new steppers originals and at an alarmingly high rate. They have outdone themselves once again with this latest drop as they welcome the sounds of Quasar inside for a four track display of bassy mastery, exploring the deeper and more dungeon-sounding side of the dubstep sound for us all to enjoy. The EP itself consists of four tracks and is an absolute thrill ride from start to finish.
Available exclusively from JunoDownload, the EP kicks off with the swampy, glitched out tones of the title track ‘Badlandz’, which combines organic percussion and moody drum bumps to kick us off with a thump. Next, ‘Submersible’ takes us down a more aquatic sound route, with bubbling sounding subs and a steady marching rhythms looking to mash up any system,. before the haunted flute-lines and mutated bass womps of ‘Laniakea’ again hit us right the chest with some serious bassweight. Finally, ‘Primal Instinct’ allows us to return to a more percussion-based arrangement, as unpredictable rhythms and engulfing subs below lead the way to a wicked finale.
