Dusting off my old mixtapes i got my hand onto the first mix of my Love Underwater series…
Experimenting slow-motioned sounds and #seapunk inspired tracks (when #seapunk was still an obscure chaos of juked r’n’b and future garage) i finally ended with something that really satisfied me.
From the backwash beating the cliff of a mysterious land to the tropical beaches of Brazil, there’s a bit of everything in it.
If you need some downtempo time and dream of what’s going to be your next holiday, this might be for you !
Available on mix.djas usual (sorry not widget, but streaming from the website is super easy). Just follow the link :

It starts with the sea, then there’s the guitar with a simple riff, the rhodes and an atmospheric voice. The ambience is set, we’re back in an idealized island of the past. Everything is precious, glamourous and fragile.
Stumbleine is a very productive ambient music maker, and it would be difficult to write about all the work done as there’s a lot to say ! Just know one thing : it’s really great and worth listening, sharing, buying and downloading. If for any reason you can’t put some cash in it, don’t worry there’s a “name your price” thing for the remixes and collaborations album.
Released on XLR8R at the begining of the month, this track is certainly one of the best atmospheric slow nu disco sound i’ve heard so far. Using retro synth sounds, the track recreates with no effort the blissful sensations of road trips imagery.
The Wrong Weather is actually a Portuguese fashion store mixing art, design, clothing and music. Though i don’t know much about how to dress, i however could not get past the great idea the team had to post two great ambient compilations including tracks from Sun Glitters, Uppermost, Exist Strategy, Koda… The compilations are for free after you registered. According to what i see, it seems that the store will publish a comp every month, i hope so. Great job guys ! The link to the FREE COMPS is HERE !
Egor Tuchin aka Fracture Design is a producer from Russia. His music is elaborated, filled with lovely details, a pleasure for your ears. Fracture Design – Goodbye Kiss [Free Tune – DL link in the description]
This very cinematic track is filled with precious emotions. The strong atmosphere unveils imageries of romantic, adventurous fantasy world.
What ? What ? American Boy ? Estelle on GenBass ? Have we gone out of our mind ? Well… No or Yes, maybe but personally i won’t give any thought about that noble act that initiates any new life just because you feel concerned.
Vicious Advert is a French producer who makes lovely electronica tunes. Among them this sweet cover of American Boy.
Brian Trifon is the front man for Trifonic, a San Francisco based electronic act that seamlessly fuses experimental production wizardry with beautiful melodies and traditional song structures to craft music that is simultaneously unexpected and accessible.
First of all I want to thank UMB to invite me to join the Generation Bass Crew , and being so patient and gentle with me .
I was thinking ….How can I contribute ? Moombahton, Dubstep, Cumbia?
Uhm… I think the rest of the buddies are doing a great job with it .
I know !!!! I’m going to bring the Hips Factor!! A few of you know me, shared stage with me or just danced with me , and you know .. I’m a dj for the ladies !!!!!
So I’ll be posting the most relaxed, sweet and hips-shaker transnational music . Of course if I find on my way a great cumbia, moombathon or whatever track i’ll be sharing it here .
I’ve planned a totally different post , but magic happens !!!!
The magic of Generation Bass, that apart from being a great blog is an amazing community.
It all began in the luvstep facebook group. I posted Andreya Triana’ – Draw the stars, which is a huge luv track with an hypnotic intro that catchs me every time I listen to it.
A few seconds after , Fleck liked my link , and i just commented- Fleck Rmx ?
24 hours later, Fleck just drop me this sweet remix of it , telling me he didn’t sleep cause he was working on that remix. It’s amazing how 2 people connected by mediterranean blood in two countries under a revolution, just get connected. So I became the mediterranean musa for this beauty.
