Despite the wait for full lifting of restrictions, we have lots to be happy about. The weather is amazing, the Euros have got off to an exciting start and there is still brilliant music being released by DJs and producers whilst they are unable to tour. Here are 5 releases coming up in the second half of June that you are sure to enjoy.
SKYLER MADISON – IRIDESCENT
All the energy of modern club rap blended with high octane electronic production. The five tracks of Iridescent has bundles of floor filling sounds that will send any crowd into overdrive. Skyler Madison is a LA based DJ and producer who has her sights set on making big waves in the Bass scene, which she is no stranger to, having been a headline DJ for over 10 years. Releasing on Circus Listen / Buy
Ternion Sound – Ternion Sound & Friends
The trio that is Ternion Sound have invited some of their equally amazing production friends to create this four track EP. Weighty, enlightening and earth shaking, as we have come to expect judging by previous releases from the Minnesota based outfit. Be prepared for rough groove bass, harsh snares and sound clash samples and special appearances from Enigma dubz, Opus, Lost and Smith. Out on Duploc Listen / Buy
RAUTU – INVERSION
A journey in sound. Inversion is beautifully sculpted to deliver 16 tracks of chilled, time bending joy. Rautu is a titan when it comes to easy listening, featuring on multiple compilation and best of albums.

NUMA CREW – SPIRALS & PYRAMIDS / SHOT THE KING!
Italian dubstep legends, Numa Crew, have emerged after a lengthy lockdown packing some serious weight. Their dub heavy, war ready sound would deter any rival from starting a clash. Solid bass, dub chambered vocals and a steady rock keep this two piece a cut above. Releasing on Zamzam Sounds for their first venture since restrictions started and their 83rd overall. Listen / Buy
Bb B – INVISIBLE SUNSHINE
A delicate and sentimental instrumental release which tells a story with perfect pacing and poise. Bb B has released this gem with Colombian label, Audiolaps who specialise in ensuring that their releases are copyright free. Great for any upcoming projects, Listen / Buy
Blemish spent 2020 reviewing Bass music releases by picking a highlight each week. His video reviews carried much needed uplifting messages which was a precursor to him playing a Bass heavy guest mix during the Heartless Crew’s show on BBC 1Xtra as a feel good set during the first lockdown. In addition, Blemish hosted some well watched interviews with future thinking producers such as DJ Eggs Legs, Kamran and turntablist Kypski. Blemish is excited about joining the UKBM team and endeavours to highlight new Bass releases to watch out for in a new feature, The Bass Drop.
