New Music – J.G, Manic, Direct, Wrighty
I have been quite excited the past few days upon hearing each of these new Bassline tracks from the scenes biggest upncoming producers of last year. This year it looks as if they are ready to dominate and set a fine example to others of how to deliver banger after banger! Last month saw some pretty good tracks appear which showed there was still life in Bassline but I reckon the best is still yet to be heard as it heats up this summer.
The first track by J.G that I heard most recently out out of the bunch is a remix of Slick Dons ‘Inna Dis’ which was a smash for TS7 last year and appeared on his JAM Volume 3 aswell as a seperate EP by Slick Don including other remixes. J.G’s remix is set to be a reminder that he is going nowhere and ready to come back and smash up the scene, it combines elements of his Bassline style mixed with influences from his Grime productions which makes it very unique.
The 2nd track I wish to share with you today is a remix with vocals from both Zeo & Trilla included which makes it one to check for straight away but vocals alone dont carry this track, Direct in quite possibly his finest hour has delivered a stomper of a track which easily compliments the two established artists. The last track I heard like this was probably from someone like Freddo which is definitely a good thing! The original version of this track was produced by Vee ‘O’ who recieved the vocals by winning a remix competition held by Zeo, he later agreed to let Direct remix the track.
The 3rd track is by longtime producer Manic who has been around for slightly longer than the above but hasn’t always been given the same sort of spotlight. This year from the off go he released a showreel aswell as a track called back to 07, several of which are favourites of mine and his latest track featuring Turbo goes to show he’s not stopping anytime soon. This remix reminds me of some of Sub Zero’s work which again is a good thing as it easily matches the quality in my opinion.
The last track by Wrighty is a remix of the ever popular hit by the Wideboys ‘If You Wanna Party, with this track Wrighty goes for a hard hitting bassline and adds chopped up vocals to send it in a different direction to previous remixes, there’s some influence from TRC in there but he adds plenty of his own style to make it a perfect track to get down to!
Check all the tracks below and keep your eyes peeled for them on upncoming mixes/releases etc.
