One of my favorite bass music labels, Vermin Street, released their newest compilation a few days ago. East Coast Bass, so much bass it had to be released in two separate disks.

MartyParty’s latest, Purple, is hitting stores on May 31 and I’m absolutely stoked for this album. You may be familiar with his project PANTyRAID with Ooah from the Glitch-Mob, or maybe you’ve seen him on the Monsters of Bass tour with Freq Nasty and Opiuo, but if not, you’re in for welcome introduction. To help promote his new EP, MartyParty is giving away a free mini EP for you to download.
“When I returned home from touring North American with The Monsters of Bass, I wanted to sit down and write a collection of songs that summed up the kinds of energy and emotion I found myself feeling and expressing to the audiences on tour every day,” states Marty. “This album touches on various forms of purple energy in a journey through the genre. The Purple album demonstrates the incredible range of this electronic genre and how it can express light and dark, turn from gentle to hard, but always delivers its message using only synthesized sounds.” – MartyParty
Grab the free tunes and be sure to pick up the full album when it drops at the end of May.

Being an Arizona resident, I enjoy helping promote the amazing talent this state has to offer. Northern Arizona producer, +verb, has just released his latest tune, with a large does of remix pressure, on the San Francisco label, Muti Music.
Straight off the Muti Page, here is their description of this solid EP.
The original mix is like being inside a world of playful toy robots and pixelated objects that then go on to teach you a thing or two. Some of our favorite producers right now the take those sounds to varied heights and other unusual places and through a myriad of contemporary and emerging genres that make this EP a very pleasant listen.
We’re stoked that +Verb found his way to us. “Giant robot laser battles; tender mechanized love-making; the blinking blips and bleeps of artificial intelligence communications: these are the computerized moods that will wash over you in the most calculated of ways.”
+verb (pronounced “Adverb” by humans) is a new blog favorite in the genre of bass. Recently featured on Soundcloud’s “What’s Hot” list for a collaboration with Stephan Jacobs, the world is anxiously preparing for an invasion of his robotic army.
With forthcoming releases on Vermin Street and Simplify Recordings and hot on the heals of his recent EP on Car Crash Set and a stellar remix of Starkey on Civil Music, +Verb now delivers a melodic glitched out chill track ‘Cough’ which then get’s remixed by some of the hottest folks in the ‘glitch’ scene right now.
Check the original below, then head over to Addictech.com and pick this one up with all the remixes.
Inaudible, one of the many producers on the Muti Music imprint out of San Francisco, comes correct with a free EP for the fans.
In his own words, “In an attempt at satisfying my craving for email addresses I am releasing the “feed me your email” EP feating the following two tracks. Carnival: The sound of Jesus, re-incarnated into a 115bpm tense, glitched out, dubstep format, and Quiet Addict: Tastes like a slow shot of skag in your eyeball. Or a dubstep number featuring an eerie vocal hook over a bubbling 8 bit lead and crackling percussion.”
Carnival also has a video featuring mutations of Mr. Inaudibles face, enjoy!

Alberta native J.me.J has been the talk of the glitch-hop town this past year with some searing successes on Addictech. Proving his diversity with releases on labels spanning the globe such as Skanky Panky, Theoretic and Tycho, Jayme now graces Street Ritual with an EP showcasing his stylistic range. His trademark clean beats combine with heavy basslines, infectious melodies and meticulous sound design, telling the story of a talented self-taught musician honing his skills for nearly three decades. J.me.J tunes have received recognition from key members of the community like Ooah, Ill Gates and Samples. The title track, “Final Approach” skillfully creates tension with simmering strings, weaving excitement with every perfectly stitched edit. Skittery percussion, well-placed silence and relentless buzzing bass drone you into a higher state with “Impressions”. The wild card on this EP comes with “Uptempo Funk Sticks“, a true testament to Jayme’s diversity with its electro-paced frenetic stabs, hypnotic swells and driving momentum. A fitting finale to a successful year for this artist!
