So in 2 years we have managed to reach this amazing feat of now having over 2 million people visit our blog! Boy, we have always felt that the stats on our site have played some kind of mind-game with us and that we were in someway, being led on, or tricked. We have checked and cross-checked and man there ain’t no tricks nor mind games, it’s actually fact!
So what does it all mean? Well to us it just means that, at the very least, we must be doing something right. We are shown lots of <3 and a lil’ bit of hate too from time to time but that’s the nature of the beast. Success, however, you wish to define it, breeds contempt and some hatred. No escaping that I’m afraid.
We are thankful for all of the <3 and it keeps us going, knowing that so many of you appreciate it.
We have seen many of the genres/sub-genres, that we were one of the first “or” most consistent to blog about, such as Moombahton and DrumST3P just fly through the roof recently with ever increasing popularity. Lots of people point to us when they mention how or when they first discovered them, which is always a pleasure to hear.
We have also broken so many new artists too who have gone on to bigger things and that for me, defines our success!
For all those that have shown us <3, all that we can say is a BIG THANKS to everybody who has dropped by for a few seconds, minutes or hours. You’ve been more than welcome, and thanks for taking the time to check us out.
When we hit the 2 million mark we did not even have a contingency plan in place on how we were going to celebrate it because we’ve been so busy. Then Vince suggested that we contact all of our mates and quickly put together a compilation as a free giveaway to all our visitors.
So the e-mails went flying off from his list and from my list and we were only expecting a handful of tracks to come in but they just kept coming in and in and in…lol..
Originally we had planned to release this compilation almost 2 weeks ago, but because of the sheer number of tracks coming in and also some people requesting more time to make exclusives for us, we have been delayed up until now.
Due to the high number of quality stuff that came through we have had to split the compilation into 3 epic volumes, which feature almost everything we cover on the blog, Dubstep, Nu Cumbia, Kuduro, Transnational Bass, Lazer Bass, Dancehall, Dub, Popstep, Transnational Dubstep, DrumST3P, Transnational Luvstep, Global Ghettotech, Moombahton, Trans Tribal Bass, Brostep, Neo Baile Funk, Sufi Dub, Nu Electronica, Nu Baltic Bass, Romantic Bass, Chip Bass, DnB….etc etc etc
Over the 3 volumes there’s also a sprinkling of xclusives from some of the scene’s leading producers George Lenton, Diamond Bass, Fleck, Celt Islam, Bert On Beats and some others.
So this one goes out to all the ones we love, YOU!
It also goes out to all our Generation Bass bloggers, old and new. Thanks for bringing so much to the plate and also for contributing some tracks, we appreciate that!
We really hope you enjoy all of this and feel free to spread the love via your own networks, Facebook, Blogs etc etc.
