Hello again! We haven’t spoken for a while but hey… parallel tracks sometimes require specific attention. I’m still getting used to the shameless self-indulgence of blogging so any comments/words of encouragement/vicious diatribes are genuinely welcome. There’s a veritable wealth (wealth I tell you) of good new bass in the coming month or so I’m going to try and cram it all in this week whilst I spend my time staring at screens in various parts of London.

First up Bok Bok, a 23 year-old DJ/producer/graphic designer (check the latter out here Will… and anyone else) who’s keeping all the current varieties of -step firmly on the dancefloor. There’s the jittering, frenetic-yet-intricate rhythms but with just enough of the brashness in the synths and bass to keep it from being too refined. He runs the Night Slugs night with L-Vis 1990 putting on the likes of purple king Joker, Drop the Lime and Funky outfit Crazy Cousinz. In his own words:

‘As a DJ my aim is to gather tracks from a wide range of sources, scenes and styles and make them all work together in a riddim-y, dutty uk soundsystem / pirate context. I’m originally a grime head, but the emergence of the UK Funky scene has got me looking for that raw percussive momentum and bass energy in all sorts of strange places.’

There’s an extensive set to be downloaded, Bok Bok going back-to-back with Braiden on ace bass station Sub FM. Dubstep, 2-step, techno, even deep house – keeps the energy up while successfully treading the line between beard scratching and body moving. Bass, bass, bass…
