This week begins with some Slow House (or is that Lean House?) from Behling, then we’ve got a Ghanaian hip hop selection by DJ Kaxtro and finish on an epic, dark, cinematic sonic collage from Psychological Strategy Board


Wanted to post this as a follow up to the Lean House which UMB posted the other day. Behling is an alias of Baobinga (or possibly ID, not 100% sure which) from Bass Music Blog and he gives his version of the subgenre a much more prosaic name: Slow House.

DJ Kaxtro

OK some of this is pretty commercial but I find it so interesting how commercial hip hop / pop sounds are being picked up and interpreted around the world, especially in Africa. Kaxtro hails from Ghana, as do most of these tunes I think.

Psychological Strategy Board

BLAM! Time to get the party started! Here’s some peak-time-dancefloor-action! Oh wait. It’s not. At all. It is pretty awesome however, a dark sonic collage taking in ambient, noise, industrial, spoken word and found sounds. Not quite the usual Generation Bass fare but I like to sneak these things in occasionally (I do have a degree in Noise after all). Comes accompanied by the cheery message: “Industry, what Industry was completed on the day of the UK royal wedding and reflects their concerns that we are rapidly spiralling into hell.” Whack this on your iPod if you’d like your day to get significantly weirder.
