What's up guys – I wanted to make this thread to talk about a new release on one of my favorite record labels, Seclusiasis. They just dropped the FIFTH edition their Street Bass Anthems compilations series, and, no joke, this might be the best yet.
There are a lot of dope artists and tracks on this album, but the reason why I'm posting about it here is because this compilation doesn't fit nicely into any one genre – there are joints that sound like glitch hop, house, dubstep, trap, and more, but it's all unified under the category of “Street Bass”.
Lately, I've been growing away from the super wobbly stuff that a lot of big DJs are spinning and digging more tunes that keep the big, aggressive bass music feel while also remaining musical. This release bridges the two very nicely IMO, and defines the sound of modern street bass music - hitting you with big sounds, but not beating you over the head with noise.
If you've been following the dubstep scene you know that trap and grime are very in right now. There's a lot of dope shit for DJs to spin on here including tunes from Shiftee, Starkey, Knight Riderz, Dev79, and DNAEBEATS, and especially if you're an EDM only DJ this stuff makes it a lot easier to add some hip-hop flavor to your set. Since DJing became such a popular new hobby, I find myself really striving hard to set myself apart from the rest of the pack. One of the main ways I do that is by selecting tracks that most people don't normally listen to. That's why I love releases like this – it's something completely separate from the bass music that a lot of people are listening to right now but it fits perfectly into my set.
Here are links to some of my favorite tracks from the comp:
