Bassmaniac & D.J. Salva 808 - The Electro Bass Invasion

Limited CD edition!

Check out the latest "City Beat Records" release. 11 Old school sounding electro/electro-bass/electro-funk tracks from D.J. Salva 808 & Bassmaniac. I personally love this cd and it hasn't left my player for 2 weeks now. If you're the type of person who is into anything electro, this album is for you... 

Here's the official demo video for the album on YouTube:

Trust me, the video doesn't even give the right impression because I found the cd even better then I thought it would be. This DJ mix by Andyman does a better job:

I you want to buy a copy don't hesitate to get in touch with City Beat Records...

Oh yeah, as you might have heard, it's not just 11 tracks, there's also a special bonus track from the Flash Force Crew (E-Rocker & DJ Richie Rich) to make it 12! Worth the €'s, trust me...

The Bass Project - Trans-Euro Bass Vol. 01

Tracks for the connoisseur


That's the type of music you can hear on this cd. You know why? I'll tell you why; because it's produced by "One Rascal" Albert Cabrera! I'm not sure about "techno", "acid" & "trance", but you do get house, dance & breaks from the man; some even have a Todd Terry feel imo...

Can't say I've been following Albert Cabrera's career but I am a big fan of his work as part of The Latin Rascals! Remember "Lisa's coming"?? Beats mayhem!!

Really cool that he did a CD for Pandisc! Funny though that track 9 and 12 are both named "Get on down"... he probably couldn't get enough of the beat (and later on you will find out there is even a part 3).

And we should not forget about the artwork ofcourse. Recognize the speaker? Ofcourse  you do; it's the speaker Deryck Ragoonanan from ImagExpress always uses for his covers! So why shouldn't he use it for this one?

You know who also likes this CD a lot? Bassotronics! He likes this album so much, he took some of the tracks, remixed them and made it into a Vol. 02. Take a look and listen:

Let it go!

Cut the midrange

Set you free

Get movin

The pulse 2

Get on down 3

Oh yeah, I almost forgot! The Bass Project album was also released on gatefold 2 LP. Unfortunately without artwork but cool none the less because the only other Miami bass gatefold sleeve I know of is another Pandisc release: Clay D's "Out the can"...

Bass MTX

MTX - Serious about sound

Yet another Pandisc compilation, this time manufactured for MTX, the car audio company. Nothing new here, Bass Mekanik, Bass Automator, Boomtube, Beat Dominator, Bass Cube and Bass Tech DXJ. Ofcourse the music is always good but what I like most about this cd is the artwork; the cd is presented in a Multi-Image(tm) CD Case from Gelardi Design. You know, the type that changes image depending on the angle you look at it. I tried to make some pictures to show you. The text is supposed to change from "BASS" to "MTX", and the "MTX" on top changes in size...

Really great how they used to put effort in packaging during the pre-MP3 days...

And don't forget:
