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. Fortunately, you don’t actually have to get disks, they are so archaic these days. Simply head on over to beatport.com and increase the size of your digital collection. Your ears and friends will thank you for lathering their senses with some quality beats.

Although I was late to announce this on my blog yesterday, here is a freebie from Vermin Street for all you music fans out there. It’s called “Good Music is Heart to Find” and is available on their bandcamp page.
This one features tunes from Burnkane, Misk, Bleep Bloop, S.P.E.C.T.R.E., Smokey and Casper, +verb, and Richard Sweat.
Yoseph draws upon influences from all corners of the music spectrum (from Reggaeton to Polka to IDM) and can spin any tale into a fresh, bass driven dancefloor meltdown. 10 years of experience in all sorts of forays have made Yoseph the force he is today. From experiments in rhythm on cassette to his Jungle/IDM catalog as Nvoise, to his toying with pop music formulae and other shenanigans. As Yoseph, the artist has releases on multiple well respected bass music labels, including Monkey Dub Records, Savory Audio and Mambo Records.
The title track of this release, Stardust, starts off with a funky hook of a bassline and stop-on-a-dime beats. After the break, Amens drop from out of nowhere and the souldful union of Old School Jungle with the new school of Dubstep is complete. Ill-Esha’s remix keeps the soul, but substitutes the Amen Breaks for some serious bass manipulation. Tightly programmed filter envelopes test the definition of what you may call a Wobble.
The B-Side of this release, Sugarllama, is every bit as funky and fresh as the flip. Glitches, intricately carved from the salsa rhythms, diced up with fresh beats, sizzling leads and crunchy bass make this tune a midtempo bass fiesta.
I’ve been diggin’ the sounds coming from the Vermin Street camp these days, and this new one from Brighton, UK’s, Manni Dee, is no exception. Both tunes provide a unique mix of low slung beats, organic sounds, trudging basslines and fits of electronic enticement. The remixes from Pixelord, Halp and Alby D are superb and do a great job of giving the listeners a new twist on some already unique tunes.
2. Antidote (Alby D Cheeky Remix)

4. Universal Symphony
5. Universal Symphony (Pixelord Remix)
