Super Electro Of The Week: Bam Bam Bam: The Noobish Compilation

May kicks off with the Creme De La Creme of Electro compilations.

Sounding a bit like a 70s Swedish porn series, Bam Bam Bam (on the red hot Noobish label) features a veritable who’s who of the international Electro/House scene: Lazy Rich, Steve Velocity, Donique, Yenn, Refracture, Frederick Olufsen, Zedd, Dermot Bateman, Dead Wasps, and yours truly, Phatso Brown.

The ten anthems cover the entire spectrum of contemporary Electro, from the dirt, funk and sweat of Frederick Olufsen’s modestly titled Superior to the haunting progressive beauty of Donique’s Steps.

You have futuristic anime inspired apocalyptic rave in Zedd’s cheeky Nibbler, and Kraftwerk meets Chicago House by way of Washington, DC in Booty.

Label head Yenn teams up with Refracture for the frenzied Electro Breaks workout that is Bass, while Keemarah gives the Dead Wasps’ Don’t You Know the Justice treatment.

Dermot Bateman’s Bang Bang Rosie is a stripped down grinder and a definite grower, and Refracture’s Play gives Klaas a run for his money.

If you love Electronic dance music, do not miss this cunningly crafted collection of climactic ear candy!

Preview and support at Beatport. And please promote legal downloads. Cheers!


Slappin’ The Bass! Great Basslines In Dance: Jamie Principle & Frankie Knuckles/Your Love

This groundbreaking 1985 House track still gives me goosebumps. With a rollicking bassline (4 string or Korg M1? Who cares?) and an incessant arpeggio, it grabs you from the start and keeps you there till the climactic end. It’s supremely satisfying , musically complex and full of surprises. When was the last time you heard a House track that did all that?

Who’s Jamie Principle you ask? Principle was the true technical wizard behind ‘Your Love.’  Knuckles did help popularize this gem and put it out on vinyl – but with his name on the cover. Ouch!

Nice vinyl version!

The entire instrumental was lifted  by The Source for the 90s Candi Staton bootleg of ‘You Got The Love’.  That one’s quite an anthem as well!

The arpeggio in my hit track Booty traces its inspiration directly to this classic.

Isn’t she adorable?
