AC Slater – Laid OffAc Slater

AC Slater has dropped off a brand new sonic treat on his Night Bass imprint. The single, “Laid Off,” is rambunctious as ever, taking listeners on a bumpy, yet pleasant ride on top of punchy kicks, heady bass, and squelchy synth progressions. Per usual, the record feels fit to drive the dancefloor into a frenzy, and will likely do so in the coming months.

“Laid Off” closes a strong summer release run for AC Slater. He paired with Kaleena Zanders at the end of May for an anthemic vocal tune “Final Fantasy,” and later landed on UKF with a fiery “Represent.” Expect to hear all of these during his current tour, which includes a stop in LA on September 28 before a brief jaunt in Europe, followed by Australia.

‘Night Bass London’ EP brings blistering bass house to streamers’ speakers

‘Night Bass London’ EP brings blistering bass house to streamers’ speakersNight Bass Shirt

Night Bass has bestowed three brand new bass house hitters on listeners via the release of Night Bass London [UKF10]. Comprised of just three cuts, Night Bass London [UKF10] keeps it sonically short and sweet, but nevertheless makes every second count. The EP kicks off with the gravelly bass technics of opening number, the Static-supplied, “Phlegmatic Dogs.”

Moving forward, “Phlegmatic Dogs” gives way to Nightline‘s underground-inflected “Shift K3Y.” Layered atop a driving bassline, the chopped, looping vocal cuts add a groovy sense of grit to the dark house showing.

Corrupt shoulders closing duties with the Raas-assisted “I Don’t Care.” The airy, atmospheric tones that accent the song’s opening seconds lend a static-y appeal to the track, but as streamers will indubitably agree, of all the electronic elements that work in harmony on “I Don’t Care,” it’s the undulating bassline that reigns supreme in the constructive context of the EP inclusion.

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes.

In this week’s installment, Golf Clap put a groovy spin on BROODS‘ “Peach.” Nicky Romero re-imagines Martin Garrix‘s “Dreamer” with Mike Yung as a melody-centric big room track, and Moscow duo Volac return to AC Slater‘s Night Bass with their Funky EP. Chime holds nothing back on an creative dubstep remake of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate “Main Theme / Lifelight.” Prince Fox continues his string of remixes with a take on Travis Scott‘s chart-topping “Sicko Mode,” and QUIX puts his own spin on GASHI‘s “Creep On Me.” KUURO deliver a formidable Monstercat release, “What U Wanna Do” with Spencer Ludwig, and Alvin Risk reveals his latest as HA with Hodgy, “O.P.E.N.” Culture Code and Rabinik tug at the heartstrings with “Love Somebody,” and Trivecta pounds out a powerful trance beat on his remix of Myon and Late Night Alumni‘s “Hearts & Silence.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Jack Beats have proven their deep understanding of house music once again with their latest release, The Remedy. Out on their frequent home at AC Slater‘s Night Bass label, the EP shows Beni G and Plus One’s innate creativity in production. Proven across four tracks, this energetic out-of-the-box thinking has become the Jack Beats brand.

The Remedy sees sounds ranging from classic house sampling and piano progressions and tweaky early 2010s-era garnishing — and that’s all just on the EP’s title track. On “Raise It Up,” the duo teamed up with fellow Brits DJ Zinc and MC GQ on a track centering around acidic synths and a wobbly bassline, and with Taiki Nulight on the in your face “Mendo.” All in all, this EP adds to Jack Beats’ impressive resume.

AC Slater and Phlegmatic Dogs wild out for remix of Kaskade’s ‘Fun’

AC Slater and Phlegmatic Dogs wild out for remix of Kaskade’s ‘Fun’DSC 1385 Bw

Earlier this year, Kaskade tapped the BROHUG trio, Mr. Tape, and Madge for some “Fun” — a funky guitar and bouncy bell synth-led house single, crafted with a penchant for playtime. Now, AC Slater joins the Phlegmatic Dogs duo in introducing the track to a diversion of the darker variety.

While AC offers the new remix his airy, reverb-heavy melodicism in the interludes, the drops are riddled with the Dogs’ signature static-heavy bass. The remix leaves Madge’s frisky vocal cut intact, tinged with a bit of pitched-down distortion. Similarly, traces of the rest of the frolicsome original’s frill still permeate throughout the remix—though they too seem to have been dropped in the Night Bass blender.

The Phlegmatic Dogs are chronic releasers inside AC’s dusky house haven, Night Bass Records. Last year, the imprint housed their breakthrough track “Keepmastik,” which plagued house sets for months after its release with its fierce rhythmic arrangement and growling bassline.

Premiere: Phlegmatic Dogs AMFAMFAMF Guest Mix

Premiere: Phlegmatic Dogs AMFAMFAMF Guest MixAMF PhlegmaticDogsMi 1

Just a few weeks away from the very first All My Friends (AMFAMFAMF) music festival, Gary Richards, aka Destructo, shares the second Guest Mix leading up to the August 18-19 LA endeavor via the Phlegmatic Dogs. Destructo’s pre-fest mixtapes, 15 of which he has already mixed himself and uploaded to the AMFAMFAMF Soundcloud page, are somewhat of an anomaly, a rather unparalleled pre-festival feature.

A relatively smaller name on the AMFAMFAMF ticket, the Phlegmatic Dogs have been causing quite a ruckus in heavy house circles as of late, with irreverent singles like “Keepmastik” and “Westcoaster,” permeating through underground and main stage house sets alike. With their high-energy AMFAMFAMF mixtape, the Night Bass duo brings equal parts tenacity and quirk, oscillating between mainstays like Habstrakt‘s “Movie” and obscure garage house offerings like fellow Night Bass-ian, Chris Lorenzo‘s “Horn Porn,” as well as a hefty amount of their own kookyily-named concoctions like “Cuatrocats.” If this mix is any indicator, the Phlegmatic Dogs are primed to reap destruction at the August gathering when they take the stage.
