Addicted to Bass 2012 (Just Music)

<Drum n Bass / Dubstep> 2011 has definitely seen the happy Dubstep, Bass fan base grow rapidly all across the world. The infectious, slightly off centre and aggressive street rhythm of the genre is wholly intoxicating for anyone who digs it. One of the world’s most renowned dance icons, Ministry of Sound releases South Africa’s first Dubstep compilation album. Three discs of sixty crunchy, gut spinning Dubstep and Bass Bin remixes are on offer. The kids are going to love this one. Some of the hit producing artists featured include DJ Fresh (not the 5FM DJ), Deadmau5, Dizzee Rascal, Afrojack, Wretch 32, Faithless, Fatboy Slim, Roger Sanchez, Eric Prydz and Martin Solveig to name a few. Expect a lot of sexy, perfect, bass heavy, party jerking music when you give this a listen. On disc one, track nine by Deadmau5 & Kaskade I Remember should rate amongst the favourites along with Vato Gonzalez ft. Foreign Beggars Badman Riddim (Jump) and Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend. On disc two, Aloe Blacc’s Need A Dollar comes as a happy remix surprise to me. Afrojack & Steve Aoki’s No Beef stands out as the most experimental on disc three whipping up some of that up-tempo township funk feel into the track, crazy but undeniably nice.
