Bass Clef Bass ClefRollercoasters Of The Heart
PUNCH DRUNK RECORDS (DRUNK023, 12” + digital)
One of the most slept-on producers in the dubstep game finally returns with a new single for Peverelist’s Punch Drunk imprint, home to the more forward thinking bass pushers out there. Ok let me clarify all this a tiny bit: firstly Bass Clef isn’t a dubstep producer per se at all, it’s just that he came to prominence in 2006 with his “A Smile Is A Curve That Straightens Most Things” album around the same time the whole dubstep thing blew up, and he was, and still is, a key player in Bristol’s bass continuum. Having a keen ear and penchant for dub production, his work found many aficionados in the scene at the time, many who have continued to follow him on his musical excursions. Secondly this isn’t technically his first release in 2011, as he dropped a cassette-only album earlier this year which featured the amazing “I Think You Are Ready Now For The Point Of No Return”. Still, new Bass Clef is exciting, and even more so when Punch Drunk is involved.
