It’s back! The second installment of the highly anticipated and heavily supported ‘Sit On My Bass’ series from Low Down Deep. We told you last time we couldn’t wait for Volume 2, and now it’s here to exceed your expectations and elicit satisfaction and excitement, fulfilling all your drum and bass desires. Pleasure steps up to the plate first with a minimal yet momentous stepper of a tune. The intro builds anticipation at an incredibly effective pace, and the half step beat is as punchy as it wants to be. The bassline has piercing elements as well as a nice grinding finish, creating a yin and yang effect sure to keep you both winding your waist and moving your mind. Some intelligently placed FX and drum interludes throughout add depth to the tune, and give it the right to stand alone or tease you in the mix.
Next up, we have ‘Crippler’ from super producer Heist. What can we say about this tune that will surprise you? If you are familiar with his work, you know the man always comes correct with his own signature sound. This tune is no different. The mastering is simply impeccable as per usual. Heist combines elements from his sounds that we have all grown to love, making this a very potent effort while providing some fan service as well. Reminiscent of tunes like ‘Verdict’ and ‘Free Texts’, this tune really is a great brew of all the things that make Heist such a boss. A sinister laughing vocal effect that cements its presence throughout the tune is one of the many things that will keep you coming back to this one for more time and time again.
No stranger to the “Sit On My Bass” series, Jaydan returns on Volume 2 to lay down the law. How the man has once again made a tune so damn heavy that on the surface has a lot of mellow elements, like the half step beat and smooth female vocal for example, is a mystery. The bassline is simply as punishing as they come, and the intro as well as all the atmospheric elements of tune are completely haunting and executed with pure precision.
Closing out the EP, we have a col-ab from Dominator and label boss Logan D. We don’t want to jinx its success by being too bold, but quite frankly, this tune has the makings of an instant classic. Robotic, industrial-style sounds set the tone throughout the intro, ushering in a powerful sounding vocal with an equally powerful message that begins your ‘Education’. The depth, style and originality of the bassline will munch your mind and ear drums to bits, and only takes you deeper as the workout truly continues to, well…educate. Once the mid section hits, you’ll find yourself gasping for breath prior to the second drop…don’t worry that’s just the incredibly well put together drums and drum fills doing exactly what they’re supposed to do. There’s a live instrument feel to the drum flex here that is seldom achieved with this much balance, and often times overdone. That’s real gangster. With something for everyone, this EP is sure to find its place in your crate, and stay there indefinitely.
