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:

Robot Koch – Supreme Sound From Berlin

SUPREME SOUND FROM BERLIN

After Supreme Sound From Paris featuring Onra and Walter Mecca, and Supreme Sound From London featuring Deft and Flako, Skullcandy launches Supreme Sound from Berlin EP featuring legendary Berlin producer Robot Koch.

Skullcandy’s ‘Supreme Sound From’ series forms part of many new exciting Skullcandy music projects coming up in 2013, collaborating with the brightest young talents from the current European electro scene and beyond. This project focuses once again on production quality, true to its Skullcandy Supreme Sound mantra – attacking bass, precision highs, natural vocals.

Koch has picked up critical acclaim for his past releases, picking up the attention of Dazed and Confused (“A gothic galactic aesthetic of ten ton beats and space age melodies”),XLR8R, (“A middle ground between the far-out experimentation of Brainfeeder and the futuristic pop of artists like Jamie Lidell, The xx, and Jimmy Edgar”) and even the late great John Peel of BBC Radio 1 fame (“Wonderful and strange – pop music from the future”).

For the Supreme Sound From Berlin EP, Koch has calibrated killer bass with intricate instrumentals, teaming up with his friends from Arcadeon and with Project Mooncircle labelmate Sieren. The EP also includes a new solo track called ‘Starfish’ as well as two collaborative tracks: ‘Corridors of Time, created with his friends Arcadeon (aka Sneaky from UK Nu-Hip Hop pioneers Fingathing & US multi instrumentalist Dan Stetich) and ‘Melville’, a team effort with Berlin producer Sieren, recently signed to Project Mooncircle for his debut split 12 inch vinyl.

BANDS: Empire Of The Sun – Alive

Australian duo Empire Of The Sun are back! They dropped ‘Alive’ yesterday, the first track to be taken from their second album ‘Ice On The Dune’ (out June 14th, the follow up)and it’s gooooood.

It seems the band have lost none of that trademark big synth pop sound that sold over a million copies of their 2008 debut album ‘Walking On The Sun’. One of the best things about Empire Of The Sun was their mysterious aesthetic, and it looks like this album is going to be no different – check their teaser trailer below.

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.

BASS: A$AP Rocky featuring Skrillex & Birdy Nam Nam – Wild For The Night

A$AP Rocky drops his new video for his much hyped collab with Skrillex. The video depicts the two of them as some of City Of God style druglords who are also kind of ninjas as well as rave promoters. Sounds ridiculous, which of course it is, but the tune is a banger and they look like they are having fun so fair dizzle to them.
