Electronic Bass Music

The latest OurLand podcast is something special indeed, and perfect fodder for open-minded fans of OFD.

J. Tijn whips up a maelstrom of techno and bass, heavy on the dub elements, switching effortlessly between 4 to the floor and half-step, this is a lesson in blending genres to perfection.

We’ve featured Sovereign on the pages before, so it’s with great pleasure we’re welcoming him back with this deep and atmospheric drum & bass tune, Tundra, featuring emotive strings, melodic mid range bass, and a tight rolling rhythm section.


MUD man Demon has just released a 9-track album via bandcamp, with all proceeds going to Cancer and Multiple Sclerosis charities.

The music is inimitably Demon - tough, minimal rhythms, tight grooves, dark atmospheres and experimental melodics, all for the bargain price of £5, plus the knowledge that you’re supporting some very worthwhile charities.

What are you waiting for?

The Cause Vol 1 by Demon

Bristol-based Vaun marks his return to Mindstep Music with a 6 track Ep of blissfully melodic, summery dubstep, tinged with a touching melancholy.

Featuring another stellar vocal contribution from Animai, who featured on his last single for the label, Taking Over, and vocal contributions from Sarah Zad and Ill Chill, Vaun once again shows his mastery when it comes working with a diverse range of vocalists.

At a time when the “dungeon” sound is starting to become formulaic and soulless, the Sidelines EP is mercifully free of growling reese basslines, opting instead for warm subs, lush pads, emotive vocals to enagage the listener, reminding us that there’s much more range to dubstep than heads-down dark vibes.

An essential release, arriving just in time for the last days of summer, with all the wistful yearning the change of season brings.

Our latest guest mix comes from Wing, one of the men behind deep dubstep indie label Imperial Audio, and also an accomplished producer and DJ in his own right.

As well as dubstep and bass electronica, Wing has been turning out some great techno over the past year or so. His tracks have a spacious and minimal aesthetic, utilising chopped vocal samples and dark atmospherics alongside the pounding kicks and sharp hats. Several of his productions feature in this mix, and some of them are available for free from the Imperial Audio bandcamp page: http://imperialaudio.bandcamp.com/music

He’s also recently started an offshoot of Imperial Audio called Ignore The Masses, which will focus on the techno side of things, which will be one to watch if you like your techno on the deep dark and minimal side.
