LONDON, September 28th 2018 – The brightest and boldest of bassline minds have joined forces for our biggest Bass Culture edition to date. A precision snapshot of where bass music is at in all its fiery formations and mutations right now; ‘UKF Bass Culture 4’ captures the essence and energy of a multi-faceted movement that continues to drive UK youth and club culture like no other style of electronic music.
An unapologetic bumper-to-bumper thumper compendium, over 50 of the most influential acts have delivered 30 tracks, including 14 exclusives, for the compilation. They hail from all points of the low-end continuum as scene defining titans such as Noisia, DJ Zinc, Chris Lorenzo, My Nu Leng and Doctor P rub shoulders with white hot new-gen agenda-setters Bushbaby, Skue-K, FooR, Vellum, Notion, Holy Goof, Skepsis, Darkzy and a whole slew of established talents including Upgrade, DISKORD, The Prototypes, Pelikann and Friction under his roustabout bass house alias FineArt.
‘UKF Bass Culture 4’ leaves no sonic stone unturned and celebrates the full spectrum of bass music. While rooted in the explosive bassline and bass house phenomena that’s been switching this year’s festivals from chill to moshpit at the snap of a drop, the album develops over the 30 tracks to tell a much broader bass tale including elements of dubstep and an epic gun finger firing climactic D&B finale with the likes of A.M.C & Turno, Funtcase & Teddy Killerz, Upgrade, Noisia & Prolix.
It’s the sound of the peak time packed arenas in festivals around the world. It’s the sound of fusion between artists who set the blueprint and those who are currently rewriting it. It’s the sound of the wildest dancefloors across the UK right now. But most importantly ‘UKF Bass Culture 4’ is the sound of a new generation of fans and artists alike adding their own new twist and take on a scene that’s rooted in one of the UK’s strongest and most unifying traditions: bass culture.
With more exclusives than any previous UKF Bass Culture albums, this series edition is by far our brightest and boldest to date.
