Bass music blog Future Grooves will be introducing a new regular guest segment here on Sublvl. Nearly every week we’re going to run through some of our favorite overlooked tunes of the past week. Covering future garage, dubstep, post-dubstep, and a few more, we’ll attempt to fill you in on what you missed.
The garage selection for this week covers a range of different styles. Fog‘s “120 Svicide (UR LOVE)” is a slow roller with a slight dark tinge. “Shame” by Heardman incorporates oscillating square-waves and clean percs for that classic future bass sound.
However, my favourite from the past week has to be Pále‘s “Silverstair“. The first three or so minutes of the track consist of a gradual, atmospheric build, before the tension is finally released in the form of a burst of energetic synths. It also happens to feature some of the best vocal cuts I’ve heard in a long time.
Post-Dubstep / Bass
The past seven days have been good for post-dubstep and other forms of bass music. Youan‘s “Must Be Love” showcases a slick, chilled vibe, with its perfectly fitting vocal sample, while “Capture” by Wabz takes things down to an increasingly-popular 116-bpm and making good use of some Michael Jackson samples.
Morning High‘s “Take Me On” is an uplifting, grooving post-dubstep tune that’s perfect to wake up to.
Meanwhile, Morning High have also been teaming up with New York producer Tmmrw to produce the mysterious juke track that is “What We Do“. Those synth stabs in the second half are just too much.
The final track of this week’s feature, “React“, is another hard-hitting juke tune, this time from Montreal duo Hesk and Paveun. “React” features the heavy 808 kick and ghetto feel you’d expect from a juke track, and is sure to go off in any club.
That’s is for this week. For more garage tunes, follow Luke over on his Future Grooves Tumblr where daily he updates with the latest and best releases.
In addition, Future Grooves is proud to announce that its next release, [FGX002], will be “Bound”, the debut EP from 30 Foamscape. The five-track EP is the perfect showcase of the London-based producer’s own take on post-dubstep and bass-oriented beats.
Listen above to the rich, layered percussion, smooth, often funky synths and deeply atmospheric rhythms that feature throughout the EP. “Bound” will be available to buy from Bandcamp, Juno Download and Chemical Records early this October.
