Bass野郎 サーキットの狼

The Circuit Wolf

Here we have another Bad News Records release in the Bass Yarou series. This appears to be the (un?)official soundtrack to "The Circuit Wolf", a manga published as "Circuit no Ōkami". As do most Bass Ya Low releases, we get a nice packaging and artwork all around. Hajime Koboyashi did his best, thats for sure.


So far so good... but now for the bad news; THE MUSIC. It sucks! (IMO ofcourse! Feel free to like it if you do!) I didn't know Michelle Jackson would perform Beat it!? I didn't know Nicky Marlboro would perform Livin' La Vida Loca!? I didn't know Ho Ho would perform Take On Me!? How could I have? (OK, you got me, could have checked Discogs).



The only track I can enjoy is Mitso Shino's "Travelling without moving"

Bass Killa - Murder Was The Bass

Before he became a thug, there was Bass Killa

Another DJ Lord Sadat production! He already appeared on this blog as Bass Thugz (Three Degrees Records TD 33002-2),  but this release (TD 33001-2) is even better. I hear Todd Terry, I hear Quad Force, I hear Bass Patrol, I hear DJ Nasty Knock... this is a real sample-heavy album, the Paul's Boutique of bass?

Check, you would swear "Neverending bass" is on deck:

I really like this album with cover art from Thellus Singleton.  And the cover model Cathy Leigh Lascoe also added to the enjoyability! (that's right, this time I have the uncensored version).

You know what, best thing is to listen to the whole shabang from beginning to end =========>

Ambient Rhythms - Nu-Urban Elektronika

Acid xplorations in electro-dub

This is a really smooth release on Streetbeat Records. Perfect cruising material I tell ya. Check it out

 full album.mp3

As you can see they were advising to "file under ambient/elektronika" ("electro-dub"), but a few months earlier they sold these tracks as "bass" (these are assorted tracks from Bass Cube, Bass Waves, Bass Inc. and Bass Ryder). An example of how to sell the same stuff to different audiences. But who's complaining? Thanks to capitalism we can enjoy another nice compilation of music in our ride...

My favorite tracks btw are:

Two-B-Free - Dancism Bass

Wiggle system

OK, here's the deal. There is "BASS" stamped all over the cover, there is a (ugly flat) booty painted on the cover, there is a woofer shaped tyre mounted on the car that is featured on the cover, there is a JBL promo on the cover...


But no...  no bass! Can you imagine? R&B-type-a-poppy-hip-hop-junk. C'mon son! Thank you very much Two-B-Free!

Here's what I will do. I will embed the "Ultimate vinyl mega mix - Workaholics Edit", and then you can see if you want to download the whole thing or not...

Bass In Your Face Vol. 5 - Triple X Bass

Non stop mix!

OK friends, I realize that it has been a Bassman month, but I have another one! 
A: It is not my fault that Mr Bassman drops bombs! 
B: According to Mr Bassman Keith Rosenberg these tracks were licensed exclusively to this Japanese release; Bass in your Face Vol. 5! That means there is a huge possibility that you never heard these before. That alone is worth sharing this release, agree?

Trust me, this IS triple X bass, you'll see:


And? Ears still ringing? Yep, the Plus Cool guys did it again. And since we are on a covers blog, check out the Plus Cool logo designed by KAZZ.
