"Bass Music From All Four Corners Of The World"

4D’s own Drooka teams up with 4D regular Krease to put together this dark mechanical one called ‘Tinman’. A sparse and clean minimal intro starts off the tune, with basic percussion and an accompanying ambiance. At the 51 second mark, the Tinman announces his presence, at which point all hell breaks loose. Krease’s trademark oldschool wobbles and deep 808’s take the listener without mercy, as a screeching metallic sound dances through the air. Percussion that screams Drooka (with hints of Krease’s work) hold the track together. This beautiful formula plays on for the most of the tune, and I personally wouldn’t have it any other way. Krease switches up his bass work for the second drop, with more presence of his wobbles and the interactions of them between the other elements of the tune. Both producers’ individual talents really shine through on this one, out to Drooka and Krease for the free download! Let’s hope this isn’t the only collaboration the two see.

South Bavarian producer Unimog (also known as Moguri, Stratos Zero, and the co-producer of Blanc’s latest release) is a new one to the 4D blog, but not to music production. Having (silently) been in the game for almost 10 years, Unimog produces an almost impossible array of music, from italo disco, to 80’s synth pop, to IDM, to future garage, and as you can hear today, to dubstep. Unimog wrote a plethora of dubstep tunes back in 2011 and 2012 that are finally now seeing release, ‘Shuriken’ is the first of these. An oriental flute soars throughout the track as minimalistic percussion and a tearing bass line accompany. Towards the end, the music slows while the familiar flute takes on an echoing solo, with small ambiances in the background, not unsimilar to some of Unimog’s other work. The tearing bass takes over, to pick the pattern back up and conclude this menacing tune. I’ve been pushing him hard to get some of his other tracks out, so hopefully more of these gems will see the light of day.

"Russian born, now London based producer FJH steps up with a very generous offering to the bass music community: the Metamorphosis EP. This EP takes no time getting to the point; ‘Cursed Triangle’ instantly surrounds the listener with cool chords, beating percussion, and a warm sub. Horns swell as the bass line gallops along, all the while fuzzy hints of a vocal hum embraces the listener. ‘Dirty Hands’ slows down the action with a smooth lead and laid back plucks. A driving sub guides the track along as minimally appropriate percussion accompany. Midway though the track electro stabs command attention, further adding to the downtempo- yet grooving and lustful- rhythm. ‘Mort’ picks the pace back up with piano chords, guitar licks, smooth vocals, and other tasteful orchestrations. A hollow bass hits first while the familiar sub follows in aftermath. The track does not let up, as new and interesting orchestrations take turns presenting themselves within the music, all the while the beat keeps the listener’s head moving. Last but definitely not least is ‘Second Jahz’. Reversed female vocals play as jittery percussion, guitar chords, piano hits, and a melancholic violin open the track. Sub and piano guide the track as precise beats and fx fills the air around the sad vocals. A twisting midrange presents itself after the vocalist takes a break, only to be joined in duet moments later. This brilliant collaboration plays through the rest of the track until a solitary piano, reminiscent of a pianist playing out a vocalist in a small, dark, and smoke-filled 20th century lounge, closes the EP. With no moment short of sonic brilliance, FJH really sets the bar high and takes no prisoners with the Metamorphosis EP. This is not one to miss for lovers of smooth, yet driving, bass music." - @echomaker

No stranger to the 4D blog, Scottish producer The Nibelheim Incident presents “The Snake Devil”. Ancient, mysterious pads open the story-tale of a track, while hissing and bending hats pick up and lead the way. The narrator does his job at explaining the Snake Devil, but the music really does the telling. Quick hits ferry the track along, while driving percussion sit in the back ground. The Snake Devil lets out a horrendous scream in the second drop, neatly wrapping up the kind of narrative track that we would expect from The Nibelheim Incident.

Italian producer Stereotipate presents a unique track called “Misanthropic”, and what a track it is. The soft sound of wind, accompanied by a kick, crash, and hat, grab the listener instantly from the beginning of the track. Shakers fasten the pace while the occasional midrange growl sneaks in and out, eventually leading to the first drop. Rather than dominating the track like most first drops do, the first drop in “Misanthropic “ seems to be more-or-less a part of the introduction, as the real magic happens later in the first drop, and predominantly in the second. Clear percussion, grooving kicks, a throbbing sub, and the occasional midrange keep the listener interested throughout this adventure of a track. While you’d think a track titled Misantrophic would aim to alienate one from humanity, Stereotipate’s production seems to lend to the opposite effect.
