Within a crowded bass scene, it is often difficult to even contemplate the idea of longevity, especially when projects seem to come and go quicker than the seasons in the UK’s current climate. It is for these reasons that large scale milestones need to be celebrated properly, with long term release structures being hailed. It’s easy to throw in the towel after 10, 20 or even 30 full drops, remember that means 30 pieces of artwork, 30 promotional campaigns, 30 sets of video content, 30 mailouts etc etc, it’s tiring stuff.

Well it certainly appears to be an exciting time for the In:Flux Audio camp, who are currently coming off the back of a tremendous anniversary release, celebrating some of the best releases across the label’s history. As a label project they clearly pride themselves on their consistency, as it’s hard to pinpoint a a drop in quality along their long run of EP and LP releases.

Throughout the UK bass scene’s rise to it’s current prominence and dancehall domination, there have been a definitely few labels that can be classed as leading lights, who have consistently provided high grade fire for the rest of the scene to take inspiration from and grow. There is no doubt in our minds that the Yorkshire based giants at In:Flux audio are one of these projects.

In my relatively short time on earth I’ve heard a veritable range of descriptors: ‘Harrowing’, ‘custardy’ and ‘stinky’ are amongst my favourites but I wouldn’t be alone in reporting I’ve even heard tracks referred to as ‘evil’ before. Mattik’s latest EP release on In:flux ‘Can’t Step’ is a cut that demands a creative description, so I will do my best below.
