Bass Labs Podcast #2

Posted by samizdat on 16 October 2011


Back at it. Bass Labs #2 cues up an hour of dubby, techy, chunky chorded goodness. Plenty of atmosphere as well to help usher in the fall, a great mix for rainy drives. There's some Emptyset and few techier tunes to keep you from going completely comatose before the hour is up.

Bass Labs Podcast #1

Posted by samizdat on 8 July 2011


I'm pleased to kick off the podcast series with a quick mix of a batch of songs that have been hanging out at the front of the box recently. Especially the two vocal tracks. 'Falling' is the prototypical ear-worm, love it or hate it, you'll be hearing it in your head long after you've heard the mix. The V.I.V.E.K. tunes were a happy find, I'd been hearing them on his mini mix for a while and was quite happy when they saw a proper release. Another recent surprise was the 'Diablo Riddim', even more surprising was how well it worked with '18th special'. It was a magic moment mixing it. Hope it translates out.
