The best track on that Paleface mix is (as usual) a Sticky track.

OK, I searched around a bit and found that DJ Q did a bassline essential mix. If anyone else cares, here's a spot to get it at, though it requires registration. The essential mix archive project they have going on here looks cool as hell.

Everytime I see the name 16Bit I get excited and think it's 16B who was a fantastic house producer and did one of my favourite remixes ever, a mix of Sixteen Souls On My Mind then the real name gets to my bring and I feel a little disappointed.

I really did like 16Bit's remix of that Little Dragon song who's name I totally forget right now. Well it was a good song in the first place so you'd really need to be trying to gently caress it up. Though on saying that, as Youtube shows apparently making a cock of an already produced song IS pretty easy to do.

My intro to bassline was catching DJ Parallax at some candy kid happy hardcore rave about a year ago. He's one of the best (only?) people doing this stuff in America these days.

http://www.djparallax.com/ has some mixes I liked a little better than the DJQ Essential Mix, though it's like 50-50 bassline and speed garage (but they're such similar genres anyway...). #1 has an amazing remix like 5 minutes in, of Blu Cantrell- Breathe that I THINK is unreleased or white label only cause I can't find it anywhere other than the mix. Otherwise there'd be a youtube here.

Good thing the topic o' the page is Bassline, I was just about to come in here with some I enjoyed. I was diggin into this dude Kavsrave, who in his own way reminds of me of Girl Unit, but through some searching for more of his stuff I found his new label mate A1 Bassline and immediately loved it. Hopefully it gets a revival, I mean to me it just makes sense with how a lot of people are feeling about dubstep now and if you were to ask me to distinguish it between Future Garage I'd find it difficult.

Edit: I don't think Distance is capable of making a bad track.

That A1 Bassline track isn't Bassline, UK House/Juke/Future Garage which might explain why it seems so of-the-moment. I think he started as a Bassline producer when Bassline was big and has since branched out, but I'm not positive.

Here's another recent one from him pretty solidly in the juke field
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1K5Wl_MM9Q A1 Bassline- Shockheaded

Kavsrave was pretty cool, thanks for the tip. I can definitely hear the Girl Unit in there.

I'm not sure how you've got the idea that either of these are bassline but it's worlds apart, haha. That A1 Bassline track is alright, allow the cheesy buildup though; reminds me of trance, yuck!

I dunno, still havin some issues with genre distinction but it seems to be a common problem so I'm not sweating over it too much. I've liked everything anyone has said is Bassline so far anyway. That and the A1 song didn't sound all that far off from the sticky track so I just assumed.

Kastle is probably old news for some but for anyone that doesn't know of him he kind of falls somewhere between Loefah and SBTRKT, both of whom I've been addicted to the past month or so. I've been eating up his Time Traveler EP so I grabbed a few mixes he did on his main site to review today.

Is there anyone outside of Night Slugs I would enjoy that's similar to Jacques Greene? I don't think this is coming off of my flash drive anytime soon. I love when it just strips down to all that bass pressure and builds back up again. Absolutely perfect.

You actually like ACTUAL dubstep. Sorry if it hurts your credibility or something.

Btw i hadn't of Kastle at all until i bought that latest EP, it's outstanding work. Silkie's album's out today and i'm not sure how much new work is on it compared to just a compilation of the City Limits but it should be interesting. Plus i think SBTRKT has an album out today or next Monday as well.

Also, there's a Butterz release coming out with Swindle and Silkie working together, should be an interesting mix.

EDIT: Also, looks like there's a new Toddla T EP or something coming out on Ninja Tune sometime soon?

Of course the first thing that jumps to my mind is Joy Orbison, but these days he's making more house-y stuff (Hyph Mngo / Wet Look was, far as I can tell, his first, last and most lasting impression on bass music). In terms of feel, a few of the more recent Saigon Recordings EPs (not Milyoo's but the few before that - Orphan101 and Gravious) and maybe Taz's EP for Numbers.

Jacques Greene has also had a couple more recent releases on LuckyMe if you've not already heard them. The rest of the LuckyMe stuff might interest you as well, though they can be a bit over the shop style wise. A lot of it's a bit more wonky/hip-hoppy.

I'll second that Gravious release on Saigon though, local hero and a nice guy. The only problem with that release is the label name. I think Saigon I automatically think of the stuff Dom & Roland put out on another label called Saigon, but anyway...

Maybe "You got me" off Scuba's last album, was also a single. Probably my favourite track off that album.

I'm not saying it like it's a bad thing to like dubstep, I just like the fusion of jazz and dubstep that Silkie has going on. It's pretty sweet.

If you like the more jazzy stuff you should check out Broken Beat. Full of jazziness, soulness and funkiness. Might be too awesome for some people though. Some folks ain't got no soul.

I actually have listened to some broken beat stuff, like 4hero. Pretty chill. He did a remix of a Fragile State song that took the beat from a downtempo lounge-y track to a danceworthy soulful 6 minutes of awesome.

There wasn't anything I didn't like out of the recommends, thanks guys. I've been eatin' up Gravious, especially Temple Ball(almost sounded like Plastician's Japan v2.0), and that Scuba track was pretty interesting too. The only one that really stuck with me from the Saigon release was Lodestone because it reminds me so much of the heavy dark dub-y stuff you would expect out of Kromestar.

It wouldn't be the first time I've heard one of those tracks and mistook it for the other. Both were kicking around for a while actually before they were release, Japan in particular which took literally years to come out if I'm remembering right.

If you liked those you could check out the Hotflush comp Space And Time. A great collection of what I like to call Hotflush's first period. Before Paul Rose went to live in Berlin and Mount Kimbie and that came in. I still get nothing but complete and utter bliss out of Vaccine's Wishful Thinking. Really looking back I think that tune really bookended that period in Dubstep to me. A real rolling the end credits thing. The sequel came out right away but it just wasn't quite as good.

Success! The final list for Part 3 of my UK Bass guide is finalised. It's not written yet so don't get too excited just now! But I just wanted to show you how I approach these things. Now I can't exactly say the last part (the more mainstream side of things) was not interesting to me - I like it - but my forte is definitely with the more underground side of things, which has slowed things down a wee bit since I really love getting my teeth into it.

So anyway how is this done? All by good old fashion leg(ear?)work. Now since I've got a time period narrowed down I can first go through my own record selection, picking out ones I like, ones that were maybe more popular as well as some more obscure stuff. Now on top of that all the old mixtapes and compilation CDs I've built up over the years get a run through a couple times each, snagging the best from them.

Finally after I get a rough list of tunes I want comes the hardest bit. Narrowing it down. If we say the final list tends to be somewhere between say 18 and 24 songs, I'll have say almost double that in a provisional list, sometimes more. Never mind different mixes of tunes to go through as well, to pick out the best, most unique or most fitting of each one. And trust me when it comes to Underground Hardcore(and the later Jungle Tekno thing) I find a lot of great and unique tracks that I absolutely love. Leaving things out is always the hardest part.
