A sizzling new EP by the German basstronaut commonly referred to as Dazed Dog called: FUSION. It definitely lives up to it’s name as you can hear all sorts of Tropical Bass & other influences melted together throughout the EP. You can even hear multiple influences within the individual tracks themselves. I’m not sure what to call it nor am I sure I even care to categorize it as anything but ‘Fusion’ and ‘Dope’. Some freebies in there too…enjoy.
Mala Noche is Nicolas Dias, a Portuguese producer based in Aix-en-Provence, France.
Supported and played by many big names from Diplo through to Buraka Som Sistema. He is primed to take the Bass scene by storm in the coming years with his cool riddims that take in everything from Tarraxo & Kizomba thru to Baile Funk & Trap, often with a big room sound that is simply too big to be contained only within France & Portugal.
He is part of the exciting New Wave of The Portuguese Bass Underground that is gonna take the world by storm.
Download this free EP from soon to be Portuguese Bass Underground giants SR Mala Noche & King Kong.
SR Mala Noche & King Kong are 2 of Portugal’s hottest exports. They have been making some of the most moving and innovative bass music for the past few years. They are being recognized worldwide as 2 emerging names from The Portuguese Bass Underground that you need to follow to monitor the growing influence of that scene.
On this EP, they work on 1 track together and gave it the Portuguese Bass Underground treatment. The other 2 tracks have been flipped by SR Mala Noche alone.
1. “Ta Me Da Gula” is a track originally by Yudi Fox ft Sander and they liked the original Kizomba version and decided to give it a kind of Kizomba-Club vibe. They left the vocals intact as on the original and added club elements. The riddim is still a “Dembow” but they flip the track into something way more modern and palatable for the masses.
2. Future – Honest. SR Mala Noche liked the piano part of this track and so he looped it all over the track to give it a “soul feeling”. He played around with the vocal cut for the drop and added some Baile Funk elements.
3. Vybz Kartel – Ever Blessed. SR Mala Noche loved the original so much and the smooth vocals which were kept as they were. He flipped the track into a soul dancehall beat to give it that added emotion.
This song was inspired by our travels to all the amazing local dance scenes we had the pleasure of crossing paths with over the last few years. Especially Venezuela, DJ Baba and the whole Caracas Tuki crew. If you want to know more about this musical universe please check out our ‘Off The Beaten Track’ documentary here:

Our friends from Kasabian unveil a little bit of what to expect from their forthcoming album. This track is a 120 BPM Moroder inspired dance anthem that kinda harks back to the Madchester days of Happy Mondays but with a refreshing twist. No doubt will go down a storm when they headline Glastonbury this summer.
