MUNCHI’S LABEL “SELEGNA” IS BACK: GODWONDER – "AIH AIH EH EH!" EP

artworks-000141575480-pyfokd-t500x500

Munchi has been away for some time but he’s decided to make a comeback in 2016 with promises of some forthcoming back catalogue releases and this new release on his Selegna imprint by Godwonder.

You might remember Godwonder with his Skullbass release on our very own little label Generation Bass about a year ago with “Black bat – Looking Scary” and now he’s even better company with Mr Big hair himself, the saviour of the Global Bass scene and one of our fave ever underground producers, Monsieur Munchi!

This is a most timely return as there’s a bunch of new kids like Kamixlo, Happy Colors and many others who have drew inspiration from the Munchi sound and are taking it to different dimensions. It’s only right that the King returns to reclaim his crown!

Munchi uploaded a preview mix on his label’s soundcloud a few days ago to rapturous applause. He has the kind of fan base that is authentic, passionate and willing to go to any extreme to grab his unreleased material. When you hear Munchi fans, you know you’re listening to real fans of the kind that superstars like Elvis The Beatles, Prince, MJ and Kanye West attract. He is that kind of artist in this small underground scene.

Godwonder is from the same place as Munchi, Netherlands and also has the same origins too, Dominican MF Republic! On the preview mix uploaded there’s signs of that ‘Munchi” sound Dembow Bombastics, Moombahton Madness and Skankin’ SkullBass Bastardery!

Munchi told me “After having a long hiatus of my own work as Munchi and the Selegna Records label, we are releasing this EP to start of the year properly. Introducing Godwonder with his first EP that will be focusing on Moombahton and Dominican Dembow.”

There will be more info to come soon on the tracks on the EP which also include a Munchi edit of ‘La Campana”!

For now, they have dropped a video for one of the lead tracks “La Baina Ta Bien” which embodies the heart of a Missy Elliot sample. Munchi says “This was made at last years ADE where we were crashing the parties and trolling the lyfe over there with a bunch of Dominicans for no reason at all lol. It was made with a fucked up camera too but who cares – it was fun!”

And may I add to that, in true Munchi style, it’s real too and that’s pretty rare in this industry.

If Munchi is coming back, it might just inspire all of us to make a comeback too. Best news of the year thus far!

MUNCHI : THE MOST IMPORTANT PRODUCER OF THE DECADE IS MISSING

munchi1

To us Munchi is the most important producer of the past 5 years in the Trans/Global/Tropical/whateva u wanna call it/ Bass Underground.

He is our brother, our son the DJ, one of our bloggers, the one and only underground dance artist in our 5 years to whom we have dedicated a whole one day special – cause he is that special.

He is still pretty special! This scene has taken a nose-dive in innovation since he has taken time out to cope with his illness. We hope he has a full recovery and gets back on track asap cause we need him, this scene needs him, innovation needs him!

We miss him, just like most of the underground scene does. We hope he comes back soon to knock the pretenders off their fake thrones!

Here’s some great footage of him taken by Daniel Van Hauten!

Get ready for Christmas with Generation Bass in Berlin !!

Poster3

There are only three days left before Berlin will burst out in Latin-flavoured happiness. We are looking forward to Esperanza just as much as you do so we decided to give a little warming up already. Get in the mood with this mouth-watering teaser..

So, what exactly can you expect?

Our main act, Tunche Soundsystem, an Andean-electronic band, which you can see in action here, will open the night with a vibrant and colourful live performance!

Intiche is another marvellous act who delivers ancestral-futuristic grooves with a combination of different live-electronic techniques.

https://soundcloud.com/intiche/intiche-wachi-electronative

Not unimportantly.. our own soundsystem will be rocking it, represented by alround tropicalist Zanada!

http://www.mixcloud.com/zanadaofficial/maio-duas-mixtape/

But the principal mind behind this fantastic event is Kumbale‘s René Gamez, a.k.a. Skrupersounds a.k.a Sonidero Sin Dinero Sound System! His sets seamlessly connect almost every corner of the Latin-global spectrum, from classic cumbia, Mexican rebajadas and urban flavoured cumbiaton, to catchy latinhouse, bassful moombahton and 3ball bangers!

Finally, eclectic retro-dj Seraphim will warp you back in time with a noiresque-funky mix of swing-tech, oldskool hiphop, balkan beats and Brazilian-vintage.

(VIDEO) Generation Bass at Mañana Mañana 2014

Overview

Here it is! A couple of weeks back I told you about the most relaxing festival. Generation Bass was there and we got it on tape for you!

[vimeo 107484179 w=700&h=390]

During the last weekend of August, Mañana Mañana 2014 was held and on the saturday, Victore and I proudly held our gig as Generation Bass.

The weather varied over the course of the weekend, but especially saturday was mixed. Right before we started it was pouring so we we’re in luck that our stage was cosy. And so we kept it that way.

Over time more and more people showed up and took a lot of interest in the sounds that we played over the evening.

We had a great time, and we hope to put future performances on video too.

Alpha Stronggah – Pedacito De Cielo EP (Preview + Free DL)

PedacitoDeCieloCoverResized

In the summer of 2013, the Chilean photographer and video artist Cristóbal Escanilla and visual artist Pablo Lineros traveled through Ecuador and Peru and collected lots of video material of nature, daily life and city-scapes of the visited places. This has resulted in a stunning visual documentary for which they teamed up with the folkloric bass producer Alpha Stronggah.

‘Pedacito de Cielo’ means ‘little piece of heaven’ and that description is precisely the atmosphere that Alpha Stronggah’s track breathes. His mesmerising blend of deep and dub sounds, rich percussion and diverse rhythmical flavours reaches a degree of lushness that comes close the vanguardistic sounds of vaporwave and future tarraxo.

As an extension of the project, Alpha Stronggah’s original soundtrack has been remixed by a forward-looking digital-folk producer from every visited country: Loko Bonó from Peru, Lascivio Bohemia from Ecuador, complemented with Sr. Lufthansa from Spain and Esceptico Jr. (ESJR) from Chile. The remixes have been bundled into a wonderful EP that will be released this week on Regional Label.

But for all of you who can’t wait to get it, Regional Label decided to share Loko Bonó’s futuristic cumbia remix already, exclusively here on Generation Bass!

Potentially, The Greatest Girl Group In The Entire Universe : Pearls Negras – Guerreira Video

PN 10

Pearls Negras are potentially the greatest Girl Group in the entire Universe atm, it’s just that the rest of the world doesn’t know it yet. They will do soon tho’!

It’s very rare that you get a non-American or English Girl Group that has the potential to be absolutely MASSIVE.

These girls have got it and just watch as they begin to dominate the world.  Their new mixtape is dropping soon and it is going to be the BOMB!

Now make way for the new QUEENS – Braziliian Bad Ass Bass!!!:

If you want to know what sort of music the girls dig, make sure to check out their Pearls Negras Top 10 that they did for us a while back.

Luckily, their producers also sent me a translation to their positive and inspirational lyrics:

GUERREIRA Guerreira vem vem // Warrior, come, come Perolas Negras // Perolas Negras Porque eu sou guerreira // Because I’m a warrior Passando por vários obstaculos // Going through various obstacles Com aliadas de um lado // With alies on one side Não tenho nada a temer // I have nothing to fear Cantando o meu rap // Singing my rap Fazendo os trouxa correr // Make the weak run Só co’ pensamento // With the only thought De lutar para vencer x2 // Of fighting to win x2 Porque eu sou guerreira // Because I’m a warrior (vem, vem) // come, come Que eu sou mais uma // I’m another one No caminho // On the way Se tá comigo vem, // If you’re with me, come Depois vai embora meu amigo // But then leave Porque o rap é como um hino // Because rap in like a anthem Cantamos com o coração // we sing with the heart Cada nota é um sentimento // each note is a feeling No fim fazemos uma canção // In the end we have a song

MUZI : UPROAR VIDEO

PastedGraphic-1

This video was Premiered yesterday at OkayAfrica:

This is what they said about it:

“His Fire Up the Bongo EP, premiering here today, showcases 6 tracks of aggressive and energetic bass paired with chopped & screwed vocals, all influenced by Baauer and likeminded producers. Watch the video for lead EP single “Uproar,” in which Muzi asks strangers on SA streets to listen to his beats”

In the meantime this is the kind of support he has enlisted in such a short space of time since his first EP dropped:

The Prodigy 4/5 “love it!!”

High Rankin 5/5 “this shit is wicked” .

Foreign Beggars 5/5 “siiiiiick . love it well . original “

OWSLA (Nick Thayer) 4/5 “seriously grimey stuff . love it”

Jakwob 5/5 “Wow this is brilliantly raw stuff . Loving Slow Hit”

16bit 4/5 ” waoowwwwaaaoowww, yes wikid vibe “

Check out the great new video for Uproar:

You can download the whole EP for free later today here on Generation Bass!!
