Bass music as a whole has become a very expansive genre bracket. If you were to go up to someone and ask them if they like bass music for instance, you could be there for hours trying to work out the parameters of precisely what you are even talking about. We find this constant shift and growth in sound so interesting here at The 3000 Network and we love to see projects such as today’s roll into view, as it gives us a genuine look at where the sound is at and even the direction it appears to be heading in.
Today, we are going to dive into one of the newer imprints to emerge out of the south of England, Primitive UK, a label and general brand who have always kept their sound and branding very precise to what they are trying to achieve. They have wrapped up an absolute corker of a project, bringing us six sumptuous new recreations of previous bangers, under the simple title of ‘Remix EP’. The track list looks incredibly spicy, welcoming back a combination of familiar names to the label, all of whom absolutely excel with some extremely tidy production work.
We begin with MPH‘s refix of ‘Money‘ from Spectrum, a crunchy garage hybrid of acidic flavours, before NuBass gives Harry Tremlet‘s ‘Chicago‘ proper bass house refit, complete with wonky synths and gnarly horns. Next, Dommix applies some super colourful designs to Sam Regalo‘s ‘Flip Out’, followed by After Hours unveiling a crunchy roller overhaul of ‘Alkaline‘, originally from Eloquin & Purple Velvet Curtains. From here, Hoax continues the high tempo approach with a sizzling drums refit of ‘The Void‘ from After Hours, before Eloquin rounds of proceedings with a super techy version of ELLM’s ‘Take Me’, making us all miss the sound system that little bit more.
We have gathered some of our favourites from the project for official YouTube premieres, which you can find below:
