The TROUBLE & BASS crew has been breaking down boundaries between electronic genres for quite awhile. Their core roster includes ringmaster Drop the Lime (DTL), as well as mathhead, Zack Shadetek & Star Eyes.
They've all been known to mash grime with break-core, and electro with jungle. Their only goal is maximum BASS. The crew has been involved with some of the craziest regular parties in Brooklyn, from Bangers & Mash to Mad Suspect, and their new monthly Trouble & Bass party.
Trouble & Bass just added two new producers that have been setting the internets on fire: Curses! and Passions. Serious Parisian purveyors of future music immediately picked up both kids. Curses! has an EP dropping on Institubes in the Spring, and Passions is putting out a single with Kitsune in March or April. Very big news for the NYC crew.
Download the above mixes, but don't listen on an empty stomach - and turn down your speakers.
- Coolfer reviews 2006 music sales (Electronic music sells the most digital albums)

- Put the Needle on the Record has the amazing Alors Les Filles On Fete Noel? mixtape mixed by DJ Orgasmic to promote the Ed Banger/Institubes Christmas party. (Not like they needed any help)
