Uprokk - October 2016 Feature

If you were keen to the revival of our music in the early 2000's, then you probably were witness to the great works by Uprokk. Infamous for his debut on Frajile Recordings with "Klockwerk Oranj", the artist has also appeared over the years on many compilations on labels like Satamile, and Transient Force, and while his discography is small, the talent he offers is something that has made him a name to look for, still, within circles of this music we call "Electro".



Debonaire Records: Taking It To The Max Since The Birth Of Electro Bass Music

Ever since the late '80s, a strong force within the Miami Bass scene began to emerge as a new sound was being forged out of the booming 808 beats, high-energy rhythms and controversial concepts found in the music of 2 Live Crew and the like; what would eventually become known to many as Techno Bass, or Car Audio Bass Music if you were in the region and witnessed this fascinating time period.

Artist Highlight

Jackal & Hyde

Call it what you will: Electro, Electrocore, or even perhaps Techno Bass on hyperdrive. Whatever their music is to you, there is one thing everyone can agree on: Jackal & Hyde's sound in the late '90s was as much a catalyst for the 3rd wave of our music, as Dynamix II and groups like Aux 88 were to the continuation of Electro Funk as its Bass counterpart in the late '80s. 


Label Highlight

City Beat Records

Ever since the year 2000, a signal from a distant past has been reaching us; a time when man and machine began to unite, yet our sense of tribalism prevailed as it merged into a modern mix of Urban culturalism, coupled with the primitive need to unite through dance and music as we always have.

Record Reviews

Gods Of Technology Feat. Egyptian Lover & Jamie Jupitor – The Bass Academy Vol.2

On a scale from 1 to 10, this massive release brought to you by Vstee and his mighty label Fdb Recordings, would receive a note of 11! Not only because it features two future classics, but altogether a plethora of Electro legends and veterans who contribute to the success of Vol. 2 in the Bass Academy's hopefully long series.


Ohverclock - Parasite Lost

Here is the lethal return of our favorite reptilians from Florida! One year after their "Tecknowledgy" digital output, Adam "GROW" Wilson and Code Rising member Ryan "Kounterakt" Phillips come up from the depths of Earth to infest our souls with their second album to date following "Land Of The Fee, Home Of The Slave" released three years ago on CHP015.


Negocious Man - Mission Failed

If you have been keeping up with many of the releases coming from labels like Fundamental Records, Binalog Productions, Beathazard, and his own Microm, then perhaps Negocious Man is a name you have been getting accustomed to. As a rising star in his country of Spain, the Madrid native has been on a diligent quest over the past several years to spread the sounds of the underground sound of Electro Bass music with talent and dedication to spare.

Umwelt - Days Of Dissent

For 20 years now he jumps from warehouses to clubs, carrying on his huge musical background condensed in his black flightcase. 20 years that he pulls his reputation of being a purist, inveterate vinyl aficionado and rough sororities lover in every city he visits. 20 years that he fights for a certain vision of Rave music: the authentic, underground, without grant one that becomes saturated to your pores, infects your mind, consumes your body and marks you forever.


Kretz - Supreme

Author of two albums "Gemeinschafts Informationen" and "Alles Ist Binär", plus a dozen of EPs on labels such as PLONK, Urkraft or Encrypted since 2012, Kretz invests into the Japanese Electro label Anti Gravity Device lead by AE35.


Axhan Sonn - Mesehyena Tracks

It was Axhan Sonn's ambient mix of "Mesehyena Tracks" on the Bass Agenda Show 136, that brought back the double album from "Axhan Sonn" back right under the spotlight. Released in 2013 on "Nerve System Records'", the album is an overview of Axhan Sonn's nicely selected ambient tracks he produced between 2005 and 2011. 


Luxus Varta - Rosenhan Experiment

Emeric Di Paolo aka Luxus Varta confirms all the good that we thought about this pure genius since his discovery on Solar One Music's Hubble Telescope Series.


Biodread ‎– Game Over EP - The Remixes

If you follow this section assiduously, you know how much we enjoy X0X Records! With a rhythm of approximatively one release per year, this Finnish premium label favors quality to quantity, serving up smashing releases each time that are worth the wait.


Sync 24 and Silicon Scally - Jack Out EP

Cultivated Electronics, the galvanizing farm of Electro music that just keeps on giving the gift of wonder, returns once again with a fabulous collaboration with label mastermind Sync 24, and legendary composer and producer Carl Finlow; here under his Silicon Scally alias.
