The Bass Drop – Late July

The second half of July will see a return to club life with many likely to go out to help out. Here are five coinciding releases.

It has been confirmed, despite the varying thoughts about it, nightclubs are set to re-open.  It seems at full capacity, with owners left to decide how much rules to place on safety.  The main rule for DJs will be to draw big sounds.  Here are five that are going to drop in the second half of July.

MAX WINTER  –  ONE THOUSAND LONELY PLACES

A release that may stand alone but doesn’t deserve to end up in one of these lonely places.  A brave and intuitive collection built on ambience, brilliantly incorporating free Jazz style licks on electronic sound-scaping with occasional angelic vocals.  One Thousand Lonely Places is both beautiful and inspiring.  Max Winter has a background in composing Jazz and Classical pieces, naturally he injects a human and emotional element into his works.  Out on Where To Now?

ITMEK  –  HALO EP

This deep, dark and heavy EP drags you into a desolate abyss packed full of hidden dangers for which you would need the help of a Halo to escape.  Birmingham born Itmek draws on his foundations of reggae, dub and drum and bass to create this ill-tempered EP.  Check out the equally dark remix from Biome as well on this release by Foto Sounds  Listen / Buy

DJ MANNY  –  SIGNALS IN MY HEAD

Footwork filled with beauty, Signals In My Head delicately tells stories of courage whilst going through pain in love.  Although produced with a reassuring calm, this album is jammed with sounds and influence.  There are moments of dubstep, acid and drum and bass that trigger the mind back to the origins.  Chicago born Manny is a respected titan of Footwork, he is joined by DJs Chap and Phil for this mega release on Planet Mu  Listen / Buy

GUCHON  –  TROPICAL PIZZA

Summertime footwork with looped chords, Miami skip beats and chopped samples.  Good times music from Guchon who is well respected in the breaks and step scenes.  The Japanese producer can be found dropping hot sets in various clubs and on radio stations, such as Rinse.  It is well worth listening to some of his previous releases on Maltine Records, Chequered Wax, Kool Stitch Works and Trekkie Trax.  This one is released on Moveltraxx   Listen / Buy

THE HALLUCI NATION  –  ONE MORE SATURDAY NIGHT

Back in May we were looking forward to the release of Remember Part 1 featuring the voice of John Trudell who spent  a lot of his life and career speaking up for human rights.  Especially those of the Native Indian community.  The end of July sees the release of the full album, One More Saturday Night which contains a part 2, 3 and 4 of Remember amongst many other great tracks.  The Halluci Nation have great ability to capture the indigenous sound and essence, then work it into a future proof blend with electronic production.  An act to be grateful for, especially as evidence of attempts to destroy the community continues to be unveiled on a weekly basis.  Listen / Buy
