It only seemed a matter of time before the two powerhouses of new Bass music, Disclosure and Baauer, teamed up on something. Here’s the suitably timed remix of Disclosure’s new single You & Me by Mr ‘Harlem Shake’ Baauer, complete with rolling basslines, house breaks and a sprinkling of the sparse atmosphere of Trap.

Disclosure released their debut album ‘Settle’ this week to much critical acclaim.

Expect to hear this remix melting your face in all the clubs this weekend. We’ll certainly be playing it in our set at West London Bass Club this weekend.

Here’s the original if you haven’t heard it yet (where have you been??) – in our opinion, one of the best tracks on the new album:

BANDS: Banks – Fall Over

LA-based hot young thing BANKS has been on our radar ever since she dropped the illustriously off-key Before I Ever Met You a couple of months back. The insanely infectious ‘Fall Over’ was soon to follow, and blew our tiny brains out. Not only is she prancing around in her undies in the official video, but her cell number is also on her Facebook Page. Thank me later boys.

BASS: Azealia Banks – No Problems

Ever wanted to stand onstage and throw a birthday cake into the crowd? Well Azealia is one step ahead of you, as demonstrated in her latest offering ‘No Problems’ from her upcoming debut album Broke With Expensive Taste. 

It’s no 212 (currently on over 48 MILLION views), but it’s bassy, filthy and produced by Machinedrum – just the way we like it. And the video using the clipping mask effect – our new favourite photoshop technique!

The vid for No Problems was also directed by 212 director Rony Alwin. We’re not sure what festival this was filmed at (SXSW?) but it looks fucking fun. Riding a rubber dinghy across a crowd – added to the bucket list.

Watch out for the fun Diplo cameo at the end.

Download the track here.

BASS: POGO – PROP MY SKY

We’ve loved the mysterious Pogo ever since he dropped his joyous Disney-sampling ‘Bloom’ back in 2011. Bizarrely it appears that Pogo still has time to drop banger after banger whilst being exiled from the US. We’ve all heard mashup videos before, perhaps most famously from Cassette Boy, but Pogo is taking is one step further, by vocoding all the vocals and making a genuinely amazing song out of it all. Sounds shit. Is brilliant.

Along with Disney films, Pogo has almost made great mashups of iCarly and Bill Gates.

BASS: SHOLA AMA – BOYFRIEND

After a stint of collaborations with the likes of Toddla T, Wiley and Diplo, Ms. Ama’s first solo single since 2007 comes in the form of sultry R&B ballad ‘Boyfriend’.

Infectious beats provide the perfect backdrop for Ama’s gorgeous vocal, leaving the track simple, understated and in my eyes; a producer’s wet dream. Along with the sexy black & white artwork (and the fact that I’ve had it on repeat for the past two days) I for one can definitely say that Sho, you didn’t fuck this up.
