On this stormy winter’s night Anton Seats, Frodi Arnason and Mike Midnight took a ride through the history of UK bass music (along the ‘ardcore continuum, if you will). With tunes spanning from 1988 -2008, we squeezed in as many essential bass bombs as we could – from Techno to Acid, Hardcore, Jungle, UK Garage, Grime and early Dubstep.
Smith & Mighty, Doc Scott, Zed Bias, UR, Goldie and Toasty Boy all made appearances – even Vangelis and seminal British band Japan got a look in when we traced back some of the original samples so central to the tunes we know and love. No mixing, no rewinds (uh?!) – just two hours of inspired beats, banter, historical revisionism and (ahem, Frodi) name dropping.
‘Here is a group trying to accomplish one thing…to get into the future‘ – through the great records of the past.
Re-stream here! (90 seconds in..)
