Mary Anne Hobbs presents Generation Bass- August 2008


For those that don't know, two and a half years ago she did an edition of the Breezeblock called 'Dubstep Warz', for which several producers did mini sets. For this new show, the original invitees selected their own choices for promising producers to feature with the same short set idea.

I've listened about twice and thus far, my favourite tunes are:

Kulture- Diesel (Where are those sombre-sounding strings from? I think it's an old jungle/hardcore tune)

Kulture- Steppin Outta Babylon

Silkie- Test

Joker- Stuck in the System

Joker- Snake Eater (potent bass in this)

Geiom Ft. Marita- Reminiscin' (not feeling the especially adapted vocals though!)

Utopian Wrote:Kulture – ‘Vitamin D’ (Dubplate)

if I remember correctly this one is a fucking tune and a half

There's a remix of a Finnish guy called Late in there. If you like Burial, his stuff is worth checking out. His percussion can sounds similar (a woodblocky sort of sound), his use of vocals sometimes, and there's even one track with what sounds like a bit of good old crackle.

it's all about joker, oneman and starkey's sets

RAD, downloading now.

The first two sets are my favourites.

What a drop on 'Purple Love' by Silkie & Mizzbeats!

holy nuts Toasty – ‘Lickable’ (Dubplate) has the coolest synth ever.

abd all those joker tunes are way cool too, i went crazy to a couple of those at the last gig i went to - they're so cool up loud.

just checked this now.. some bits very good indeed Xyxthumbs
