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:

BASS: Lady Leshurr – Upset

LadyLeshurrLyeah

UK MC Lady Leshurr drops a new jam with filthy basslines and spitting grime vocals. Reminiscent of early Dizzee and already tipped by The Streets’ Mike Skinner as ‘One To Watch’ in The Guardian. Instant love.

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: Lissie – Shameless

SHE’S BACK. It’s been 3 long, cold, relentless years without her but Lissie finally returns with her new single Shameless. Sporting a hot new haircut and sounding more like Emily Haines than I remember, Shameless is released on 16th April and is the first cut from her upcoming studio album (yippee). It’s no When I’m Alone, but it’s a promising little tune and to be honest, we’re just glad she’s back.

BANDS: PHOENIX – ENTERTAINMENT (BLOOD ORANGE REMIX FT MUTYA KEISHA SIOBHAN)

Not going to lie, I’ve been following the super cool Instagram life of Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) for a while now. Not only was this due to his many hangs with Solange, Mickey Mouse and overall swag rating of like, A MILLION, but also because during the visual stalking of said profile I noticed he was having several bro-outs with the Sugababes.

Having been a fan of the newly named ‘Mutya Keisha Siobhan’ since the ‘Overload’ days, I was eager (along with the rest of the world) to see what this comeback would bring. Would Heidi be sourly missed? Would Mutya still have the lip piercing? Would Siobhan EVER speak?

All my worries were silenced when a MKS re-work of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Swimming Pools’ surfaced a couple of weeks back, and the three part sugary harmony was still there in all it’s glory. This second installment from the new SB line up is a Blood Orange remix of Phoenix’s ‘Entertainment’ where the girls get all sassy on the vocals. Check it out, and love it.

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: ROX – I DON’T BELIEVE (DON DIABLO REMIX)

We’re not 100% what happened to this remix – was it unofficial? Why has it been taken down from all the official channels? It is SUCH A BANGER.

Either way it was one of our fave remixes from 2010 – kick ass vocals from London soul upstart Rox and Dutch remixer extraordinaire Don Diablo results in a total toe tapping 100% bandsxbass approved bangarang.

Don Diablo has recently been remixing for the very awesome UK electro poppers The Other Tribe, including the remix from the rather good track Skirts.

Rox? She appears to have released two albums since this track. We’ll give them a spin and get back if they are any good.

BASS: DUKE DUMONT – NEED U (100%) FEAT. A*M*E

Named by Resident Advisor as ‘the Producer’s Producer’, Duke Dumont has teamed up with 21 year old pop starlet A*M*E for this latest smash. Set for this week’s UK Number 1, the chorus of this will stick in your head for weeks, and we’re not sorry.

Check the accompanied music video where a guy has a mixer stuck in his stomach playing the track on repeat, bearing the burden of strangers pop-locking around him everywhere he goes.
