DON'T JUST ACT LIKE YOURE DRINKING MILK
For a genre that just renamed itself, is mostly based on lowquality mixtapes, and has few labels to speak of, there's quite an assemblage of uptempo bass purveyors tromping around the internet-- and, I'd have to assume, across the pond as well-- touting themselves as bassline house kids. As long as it doesn't get boring quick, right? I caught whiff of DJ V and Rolla (who run Visualize Records) a few months ago from that crazy divafied rub, Music Takes You Higher. This and that dub are both of the "Bassline Meets 4x4 EP" which you can pick up here. This cut is straight sinister bassline house with a wicked pace and some evil little techtrance highlights to keep it interesting-- and make it stand out from the hundreds of other new bassline tracks in my recent playlists.

And then there's this uberbanger, a total wrecker, from the immaculate Dexplicit. Ever since Dubz V1 I've been killing to see the man spin a set; was a damn shame I missed his recent gig with our boys T&B in NY, but duty calls you to the middle of a frozen pond sometimes.
Word is it was mental (^_)

There's a lot of so called "uplifting" female vocals in UK Garage. Not here.
And yes. It will probably get yr attention.
Wittyboy - Attention
We can kill it with some heavy, thunderfucking trance music, the sort to which we all get our rocks off. It's motherfucking BBE! If it's more than ten years old I guess that makes it vintage, huh? Anyway, all this Wiz Kalifa/ Wes Fif /Flo Rida trance rap is making me remember how fierce the roller rink banged in grade school.
