You could argue that a genre hasn’t really made it to the big time until it gets its own Ministry of Sound compilation, and that’s exactly what’s happened with ‘Future Bass’, the latest CD to come out of MoS headquarters.
CD1 kicks off with the brilliant ‘Control’ from Disclosure before upping the ante through some of the big names of the ‘bass’ genre at the moment, Julio Bashmore, Mosca, Rustie and Hudson Mohawke, before bringing things back down again to the smooth ‘More Than Me’ by Eliphino. The rest of the CD explores some of the more subtle and sparse variations of bass along with some upfront club bangers, like Hostage’s ‘Creep’ and ‘Yo Vogue’ by French Fries, before ending with Miguel Campbell’s remix of ‘Stronger’ by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
The second disc takes things deeper still with tracks from the likes of Maya Jane Coles and Jamie Jones, but still packs a good punch every now and then, with some absolute killer tunes standing out, such as Shadow Child’s ‘String Thing’ and TNGHT’s ‘Higher Ground’. The compilation also showcases music from some of the scene’s most exciting up and coming producers, such as Pusherman, Dusky and Bwana.
All in all this album brings together a whole host of pivotal tracks from across the bass spectrum into a damn fine collection of what are undoubtedly some of the most forward thinking sounds around at the moment.
