BigupBassMusicblog: J Kenzo (Dub Police, Soul Shakerz)
I've been meaning for some time now to give a MASSIVE SHOUT OUT to Bass Music blog, a collaborative project by some of the biggest names out there on the UK bass music scene: baobinga, dub-4, ginz, heavyfeet, high rankin, i.d., james alexander fox, mumdance, reso, rico tubbs, sidenote, terry hooligan and trg.
This is not just a blog, it's a fucking resource. Top bass lovin' genre blending producers host mixes and post free tunes and review releases by their favourite producers. What more could you want? As you might expect, they know their shit, with sounds ranging through bassline, ragga, dubstep, garage, electro, techno, house and all heavyweight shapes in between.
Of particular note is their exclusive 'Bass Music' series (check the right hand menu) of interviews and mixes from innovative DJs and producers at the leading edge of the European bass music scene. The most recent installment is this lush mixtape from J Kenzo of Dub Police and Soul Shakerz. Clean and uptempo, this is a strong contender for my favourite dubstep mixtape since Appleblim's Resident Advisor podcast last year.
You can read a full interview with Jay about his projects featured in the mix on the Bass Music blog. To keep posted with future sub sonic developments, follow @baobinga and @bassmusicblog on Twitter.
