Sup yo! Our fav Italians (no, thats really congorock I think…) are back with a great cut together with KELIS, nothing new, but this remix is kinda fresh! RUSTIE takes it to a next level dubstep pop remix (or something like that), check the beats right here. this cut is mono, but sounds good, so you can imagine what the original will sound like after you buy it! 🙂
Kiss My Bass Recordings is proud to announce it’s first release, out now at all good digital stores, “I Came To, You Came To”.
The label itself is based in Portsmouth, UK but has already enlisted a wealth of talent from all over the world. Mr Vega is one such talent, hailing from New York and recently enjoying a surge of DJ sets in the city, including a night at the much talked about CMJ festivities.
His trademark gritty electro house sound has been ruling the blog music scene for some time now and his remixes are getting big attention so it only seemed right that he provide the setting for KMB’s first release.
This track takes that gritty sound and adds a heavy dose of rave and wobble, ensuring a full dance floor and grinning mugs!
Remixes come in dubstep influenced house sound from Udy (Dusted Breaks, Communicate, Prozak, Mixtape Recordings…), big room sub heavy breaks from II Tone (Standard Audio, Dusted Breaks) and noisy looping madness from Ricky Vaughn (NY).
DJ response to the EP has been very encouraging with Drop the Lime featuring the Udy remix in his latest podcasted mix for Clash Music. Foamo, Pirate Soundsystem, Kry Wolf & Punk Jump Up have also responded positively to the track.
Big news from UK trio Aquasky – they’ve dropped Part Two of their Deep Fat Frequencies EP series on Passenger Records, seeing them team up with Midlands 4/4 bassline producers Slipz n Dapz for “You Know We Do It Big.”
The EP itself is a cracker, you can preview it on Beatport below. On remix duty there’s Tonka, signed to Norman Cook’s Southern Fried label, the infamous d&b legend Friction, 21 year old UK producer Raffertie plus Slipz N Dapz throwing down another bassline remix.
Radio 1 support from Kissy Sellout and Annie Nightingale, as well as biggups from Lee Mortimer, Far Too Loud, Foamo, Maelstrom and Si Begg. Oh – and IDJ marked it 9/10. So not bad!

Some of you wanted to know more about the origins of the BAREFOOT genre created by STEREOTYP and so I found out for you!
Here’s what the man himself says:
The Barefoot thing.
The idea came together a while back. I thought wouldn’t it be great to actually have club night that don’t hesitate to play different tempo’s in the same evening, which was at some point almost like blasphemy.
It was like; u can’t play 95 bpm tunes then go to 128, up to 140… & maybe drop again to 80 bpm! The heads would look at you like, how could you mix all these genres in one evening on the same night?
How could you? Shame on you!!!
So I thought by creating a genre that doesn’t have these tempo restrictions, it will give peeps that like jumping tempo’s a right to exist 🙂
Also it might stop people calling my sound: dub, futuredancehalltribalbassmusik, since my shit didn’t ever fit in any of the existing genres.
If I think back to my first G-Stone album ‘my sound’ this would actually mark the birth of Barefoot. People were struggling to find a name for it back then.
I also felt there should be more freedom for sound. I myself made tunes in the past that were not released because even if a label really liked it ,they saw a problem for sales because it didn’t fit any of the tempo rules that other dance music had at that time.
Free the sound 🙂
I love the sound and power of dub, drm’n bass, dubstep, bassline, bassmusic and so on. So now that sound and characteristic can exist in all kinds of tempo. Barefoot 🙂
keep it dutty
So there you go, straight from the horses mouth!
Interesting man, seems that BAREFOOT came along for a number of different but unavoidable reasons.
Firstly as a means to rebel against conventional rules commonly applying to club nights which employ a standardized bmp rule.
Secondly, in order to be able to market the genre in those tidy little pretty boxes, which the industry loves so much and that the consumers and fashionista’s demand.
More on Barefoot later this year as Stereotyp’s other project KU BO is due for release early next year and man it is shit hot, been lucky enough to get advance copies of the stuff and phewwww!!!mannn!!! ahahahaha
For now enjoy a couple of more BAREFOOT BEAUTIES!!!!
