Mixed by Rinse FM resident and bassline favorite, Paleface, this is the fifth installment in the Rinse label's compilation series. Rinse:05 is an A&R's wet dream. London's underground can lay claim to originating many forms of British dance music, but bassline house is not one of them. For several years now the north of England (namely Sheffield's sink estates) has been nurturing the bastard child of garage since said genre was gang raped by the major labels. London is waking up to the new sound of clubland. Despite its healthy existence in Leeds, Sheffield and Coventry, you'd have been hard pressed to find anyone who'd heard of bassline. But when Paleface and company took the sound to Ayia Napa in '07, the penny dropped for a whole heap of ravers. Bassline embodies the energy and aesthetic of garage circa '99, with the shuddering bass of grime and a 4/4 dance-oriented structure all underlined with an acute sense of fun. It was the excitement from these ravers on their return to Britain which gave the sound the momentum to blindside established, mainstream artists and reach #1 in the national charts. Long-time garage artists including $tush, Dexplicit, Sticky and Gemma Fox are embracing the sound and ushering in the renaissance of ghetto raves, which are packed full of girls and guys in equal measures. Track 17 in the mix ? "Hypnotik" -- is the dancefloor destroyer and is produced by Mr V, formerly of grime notoriety. Other artists include Ill Mana, Wittyboy, Mr Figz, Dub Melitia, Rekless, Jalla, Burgaboy, BM, Screama, Wittyboy, Piper, Kyla, Dexplicit, T.R.C., P-Money, Mr Hatter, Sticky, Young London, Fingaz, Jalla, DS1, Caliber, Ben Joel, Keynos, GS, Krissi B, DJ Stylez, Mr Blackfinger, Krissi B, Marvin Brown, Kat Blu, Brasstooth and more.
