Night Bass boss, AC Slater, is back on his own label, and once again accepting mellifluous assistance from dance music vocalizer, Kaleena Zanders, for a groove-infused bass house cut, “Final Fantasy.”
Zanders has been a friend of Night Bass for several years running. She lent her vocals to the label’s 2015 release — a single with Petey Clicks entitled “The One.” Since then, she has become an established member of the Night Bass family, working with BOT, Jack Beats, and more on offerings from the imprint.
Zanders’ first co-production with AC Slater, “Another You,” came in 2017 on Slater’s album, Outsiders. Where that track fits the bouncing, garage-influenced Night Bass sound like a glove, “Final Fantasy” demonstrates a level of collaborative growth for both artists. Slater reigns in the bassline to make it more organically supportive of Zanders, while she melds her voice to a more dance-able hook with more ease than ever before.
This single includes three ancillary remixes attached to the arrival, featuring fellow Night Bass cohorts, Steady Rock and Jay Robinson, as well as a drum ‘n’ bass flip from Turno.
Made Event‘s titanic New York-based festival, Electric Zoo, is celebrating its tenth birthday this Labor Day Weekend, August 31st–September 2nd. To mark the momentous double-digit occasion, the wildlife-themed event has added two more headlining artists in Alesso and Tiësto to join the star-studded cast of talent that already tops the 2018 bill: Kaskade, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, and Virtual Self.
Released on his imprint, Night Bass, AC Slater has compiled a four-song remix album, Outsiders Remixed Pt. 1. Known for featuring innovative bass music, circled around UK garage, bass, grime, house, and everything notable in between, AC Slater makes it his mission to represent the cream of the crop in dance music.
The first track on the album is Sinden‘s remix of “Misfits.” The edgy house creation showcases alluring undertones, inviting vocals, and prominent beats. Sinden captures the perfect balance between unwavering energy and smooth progressions.
The second piece, “Taking Off,” is Jay Robinson‘s rendition on the original. In his take, Robinson flaunts unbridled waves of bass contrasted by dissonant notes of synth in his production. With his euphoric, heavy house feel, Jay Robinson is sure to enlighten listeners with “Taking Off.”
Riddim Commission has brought the fire in their remix of “Big Riddim.” Rhythmic vocals over a static bass line create a captivating vibe full of surprises. In their latest, Riddim Commission engineers a sound that is not for the faint hearted.
The last track is Petey Clicks‘ remix of “Dealer,” a bass-heavy collection of colorful layers of sound. Intriguing builds give way to bruising climaxes full of exhilarating synths and playful percussion. Petey Clicks takes listeners on a journey through his intricate style in “Dealer.”
With four exceptional remixes, the artists included in Outsiders Remixed Pt. 1 take the original creations to new heights with their innovative takes on some of AC Slater’s killer classics.
