Slap You in Public

Last week I highlighted the Ed Banger crew from Paris. This week I want to start to highlight some of the amazing dance talent here in NYC...

DOWNLOAD: Mathhead - Troublemix! (MP3)

Trouble and BassThe 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 and BassNot only do they throw rippin' parties, they are some of the most prolific producers I've ever encountered. Look at these Discogs pages: Drop The Lime + Team Shadetek...insane!

DTL and mathhead just put out an EP entitled Bass Bandits on Philly's Flamin' Hotz. Pick it up at Turntable Lab. The next Trouble & Bass EP is out in March via SEED distribution.

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.
