Lots of new cutting edge bass music this week including bits from Untold, Stagga, Lady Grew and previews of the new Lazer Sword album. Plus of course a few classics slabs of Acid House, 2-Step and Hardcore for good measure.

As long-standing fans of Spatial, we’ve had the chance to watch this guy’s productions go from good to insane. When you’re at the level he’s at now, filling two thirds of a mix with your own dubs is actually the best thing you can do. And it’s exactly what he’s done for us, weaving ten brand new productions around further exclusives from Jamie Grind, Kingthing and xxxy among others.

Currently all the rage with hipsters worldwide, Chicago Juke music has roots that run deep. The film chronicles the birth and evolution of a genre over 25 years.
Bit of a history lesson here. This wicked documentary chronicles the evolution of ghetto house, from it’s early roots in the late 80′s in Chicago through to the modern day manifestation of juke and footwork. Essential viewing.
Octo Octa “I’m Trying”
Words: Glenn Jackson Label: 100% Silk
100% Silk seems to have found just the right balance between adventurous disco-tinged house tunes and slightly retro-oriented dance music with a series of impressive releases from the likes of Ital, Magic Touch (both of whom we had chat with each other for a recent feature), Maria Minerva, Innergaze, Cuticle, and more—marking the label’s first year of output. Now you can add Octo Octa, the alias of one Michael Morrison, to the list with his recent “Let Me See You” four-track maxi-single (artwork above). Here, we have “I’m Trying,” a cut from that record’s second side, which presents a crisp take on classic house sensibilities and, in the end, may prove to be one of 100% Silk’s most sweat-inducing tracks. With it’s chopped vocals, ever-evolving synth blurps, and rolling bassline, it’s certainly hard to resist the urge to move. But throw in the sly use of a classic break (think cardboard battles in the park), and Octo Octa pretty much has us shaking from head to toe. The 12″ maxi-single is unfortunately already sold out in its physical form, but can still be copped digitally. (via Altered Zones)

La serie Concepto MIX recibe a una de las mayores personalidades del mundo electrónico actual. Gracias al próximo MicroMUTEK.ES, el neoyorkino Drew Lustman se incorpora como invitado a nuestra serie con una espectacular y ecléctica selección en la que el estandarte de Planet Mu y reciente fichaje de Ninja Tune da buena muestra de sus múltiples influencias; desde la delicadeza y trangresión de Arthur Russell, pasando por la opresión de Andy Sott, el talento de Gerry Read, el philly sound de la MFSB, la IDM de AFX o LFO, hasta llegar a un apoteósico final apostando por la Ballroom-estética del gran MikeQ.
