Here today with Krush Groov’s first release, Bakupgrl. As you may remember from our CVS interview, Krush Groov is Barclay Crenshaw’s new Vinyl Format label with more focus on faster tempos and influenced heavily by Juke/Hype music. This release is the perfect blend of that infamous Dirtybird sound CVS is known for with a nice fast tempo miami bass touch, Big heavy booty shakin’ bass lines with that bakup s s s stutta’ vocal. The first time we heard the (Grizzl Detroit Dub) was at a Dirtybird party earlier this spring, I remember being shocked with the awesomeness and thinking that it must be something related to CVS/DB due to all the distinct sounds and styles of the tracks he produces. It wasn’t until I heard a Girl Unit podcast that it came to light as The Grizzl & J.Phlip on Krush Groov. This release is FIRE! Make sure to get yourself a copy of this dancefloor dankness. Available at Juno & Discogs

Hello fellow vitamin fiends! I recently finished up a new track (along with a Moombah edit) and I’ve decided to give em out for free. Please visit my soundcloud and grab the downloads there! Also, please feel free to use the comment form here and let me know what you guys think. This is my first attempt at anything Dutch or Moombah so I’d love to hear some feedback!
Just got wind of this compilation release from Bone Idle Records! Such heavy-hitting stuff, my favorite cuts being from Byron Fortune, Azverento, Sean Taylor and Schenk. P.S. I think Azverento really likes Hijack.
Here’s the official word from Bone Idle:
“We got a fantastic compilation album to round up August for you. Bone Idle has been collecting some awesome one off tracks and we decided to showcase them all on our first compilation of the year. We aimed to bring you a collection of sub focused jacked up tunes, and we think we did pretty damn good! There’s some new faces such as J Fader, Dizzy K, Sepehr & Applefly and some familiar ones with Schenk, Sean Taylor and Azverento. 9 tracks of wonderful bass. Help your ears and take a listen.”
Jack Union released their 33rd EP this week in celebration of their 4th anniversary. This EP is mint with a large selection of artist’s from the Jack Union roster including Hijack, Old Soul, Kimba, Trevor Loveys, Jeff Doubleu, Sick Jargon, Robert Boogert, Tom EQ, Brabe and The Potato Heads. Since my addiction to the label I can’t help but feel that it really is ahead of the game in many ways. Check out this EP, follow the label and you’ll see what I mean.
In respect to the mighty over lord Jack Union and his house music minions, congratulations and we look forward to much more to come!

Every so often a blogger introduces an artist under the premise that they have been friends for a long time and that they can’t wait for them to make it big. Well, I always thought that might take away from the artist’s credibility slightly so for this article I’ll make sure to keep the personals to a minimum. I will say that I’ve known this heavy-hitting producer for a few months & he is without a doubt one of the most talented artists I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Coupled with a humble attitude and an incredible work ethic, Bassex is my choice for breakout artist to watch over the next 12 months.
With major releases for both Play Me and Burn the Fire Records, it is no surprise the young newcomer has garnished industry wide support & attention. Receiving praise from the likes of LA dons Cold Blank & Play Me Records badass Reid Speed, Bassex newly released EP is quickly climbing the Beatport Charts. Signed with the artist agency Vital Management, you can bet on seeing him rocking a town near you. Check out his fire and be prepared to melt.
First post whatup!!! I’ll admit I was hesitant to do so as I felt I’d somehow bring down the entire site with my stupidity however I took a deep breath and here we are. What a way to start with the bangin’ electro trio ‘Black Noise’ or for those who don’t know, also run under the alias ‘Aquasky’. Since their creation in 2009 Black Noise have been making bass monsters with releases on Simma, Southern Fried and Wearhouse Music. Their latest EP is another instalment to the Wearhouse Music catalogue and produces three electro killers.
My pick of the bunch is ‘Work That Sucker’ as I love the vocal shots but the collab between Black Noise, Lee Mortimer & Wizard Sleeve is rad with the filter disco. Expect this EP out on beatport way soon!
