G-house fans around the world have a treat on their hands with BIJOU’s debut LP, Diamond City. Plenty of musical influences on display in a 15-track bundle of bouncy bass, catchy hooks, and vintage BIJOU goodness.

Scuba Girl is an Egyptian producer that has relocated to Atlanta and has found underground success with past works in footwork. Under his alter ego Scuba Girl he mixes childhood influences of Arab and African sonics with contemporary UK Bass.

His new single track “Geta Stomp” is taken from the new Kalibr+ compilation “Pipeline” and it’s a shining example of a bass-filled, deconstructed club monster.

Catnapp – Slow

Jun 16 2020

Berlin label Monkeytown Records was founded by Modeselektor and they’ve signed Argentinean born but Berlin-based artist Catnapp and on the single track “Slow” (a prelude to her EP “Damage” that will be released on June 26th) we get bone-crunching bass vibes with crystal synthy electro sounds thrown in, fine-sounding rap lines, along with subtle vocals.

Italian label Merge Layers focuses on deconstructed club music, their new compilation release “Call To Action” is released today and all the profits goes to the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Merge Layers comes out of the necessity and willingness to get people together, to go beyond the surface, being home to the mighty cultural human diversity reflected in the beloved shades of club tunes we’ve been curating and supporting 24/7. We feel touched about what’s happening, and highly aware of the complex interconnectedness surrounding racial issues, rooted in a society (everyone belongs to) that legitimates violence and oppression. But there is no room for doubts, so we would rather consider ourselves hypocritical than cynical. We are down with those fighting for their rights, despite the filter used to define them: color, religion, gender, job and any other filter deployed to endlessly discriminate while carrying on a distorted narrative that fuels separateness, whether it’s for you George today or tomorrow’s daily injustices within our communities. With extreme humbleness, making music it’s what naturally came from our guts and chest, therefore we’ve decided to join forces with all our fellows giving form to a collection of tracks supporting this message. For this reason, we’ve set up a special Bandcamp page where you can go and contribute to the #BlackLivesMatter organization (via ActBlue) by purchasing this “Call To Action” release, all the profits will be entirely destined to their activities. Our commitment to the cause has no expiration date, the page will remain live forever, so that anywhere, anytime you could spend your bucks, pennies, yen or euros, on this, as a reminder as well as a means to keep the debate rolling. Nonetheless, as mentioned previously, we don’t need to lose the focus on what the objective really is. If you feel like you could do more, both economically and socially speaking, go for it! Advocate for those who can’t, donate, educate yourself, but also the pals who just want to stay comfy in their bubbles, dig deeper, start from the small unseen insidious traps. We are not here to teach anything, we are not the ones sitting on a pedestal telling what you should or should not do, cause the truth is, that you know better than anyone else where the suffering, oppressions and unheard slaughters are…reach your inner consciousness. “Call To Action”.”

Perth based producer SILVA (formerly part of production duo Twerl), returns with new track “Orchid”, released just last week the track is filled with sweeping synths and bass-filled drops.

Silva has already seen support from what’s basically who’s who of bass/trap music over the last couple years including Ekali, Quix, Ookay, Stooki, LUUDE, Montel 2099, Sacha Vibes, Benzi, Badrapper and he has done collaborations/remixes for heavy hitters including UZ, Hex Cougar, and Graves.

The only mixtape that you need in 2020 comes from Parisian dj and one-man club destroyer Teki Latex AKA The King of Blends and Tokyo based video game music historian Nick Dwyer AKA Diggin’ In The Carts who have joined forces to bring you “TEKI AND NICK’S MIXTAPE QUEST ADVENTURE” (???????U??????????????), 73 tracks and almost 80 min long this is a unique blend of golden era age video game soundtracks, hip hop acapellas and bass-heavy dance music, with mixtape exclusives from some of underground music’s finest such as Kode 9, Ikonika, Mumdance, Foodman, Jammz and ShiShi Yamazaki.

Tisoki joins forces with MineSweepa on “See You Again,” featuring David Kuncio on vocals. The compelling single is a clever melting pot of trap, hip hop and dubstep, melding lush breakdowns with captivating verses and jarring drops. “See You Again” is the third single to be unveiled from Tisoki’s forthcoming sophomore EP, due out this spring via Dim Mak. The UK-native is currently on tour stateside through May, with collaborator MineSweepa joining him as direct support on all stops.
