Cultlass Supreme presents : UK BASS
"For those who don't know, UK Bass is a decidedly pie'n'mash take on the Stateside booty bass phenomenon: a hyperactive hybrid of ghetto-techno, lowbrow boompty-bump and ragga-heavy jungle complete with lascivious lyrics and basslines so big you could abseil off of them, all cut up, fucked-up and pitched up to plus 16. It's not big. It's not clever. But damn, is it fun. Wide Productions are a collective of producers and DJs responsible for this monster of a genre. At its helm are Cutlass Supreme, UK Bass' mixmaster and Tha Paddy Pimp, fast-talking promoter. They set up Wide four years ago as a D&B night, but grew disillusioned with a scene losing its rude reggae edge to noisier, less danceable strains. By chance, Cutlass came across a Detroit ghetto-tech record. Like the Miami bass and Chicago ghetto-house scenes which influenced it, ghetto-tech shared a liking for super-fast BPMs, sexual lyrics and downright stupid b-lines. Techno, only far filthier. Music for getting shitty, slutty and sweaty to.
This CD is the sound of a Wide party condensed down into 62-minutes of madness. Featuring classics from Detroit and Chicago, forthcoming dancefloor destroyers from Wide Records and novamute and Wide anthems like 'The Chopper'."
