Bassbottle presents his new release Air Pressure
Bassbottle is one of the most fun, easygoing chaps in hardtechno right now. Oh, and he’s also got a brand spanking new EP out that has been rocking our office for the last few days.
BTS gives you the lowdown on what it’s all about!
Who is Bassbottle?
This the first time we’ve covered Sonic Speed Records owner Fabian Bassbottle, a German techno/ hardtechno DJ and producer who has been making music for over ten years.
His fun-loving music is characterised by grooves, power, synths, lashings of unusual ambience noises and glitches – and plenty of sexiness to boost!
His label, Sonic Speed Records, is a hardtechno label that has been putting out music since 2009.
If you’ve ever seen their cover art, you’ll know that this is one hardtechno label that doesn’t take life all that seriously – Fabian and the gang just want to have FUN.
Air Pressure EP
Bassbottle’s new EP is called Air Pressure, an apt title if ever there was one! Basically, if there is too much air pressure in a small room, it will explode.
We’re guessing that’s exactly what would happen if there was ever too much Bassbottle in a small room!
The EP is very Bassbottle. Tracks like Air Pressure and Raging Unicorns are fairly straightforward hardtechno fare, but there is a pinch of experimentalism about them.
As always with Fabian, there is a playfulness about them, and a sense of the weird. Air Pressure even includes sounds that appear to be military marches that he has turned into beats!
April Rain is a noteworthy highlight. Featuring the vocal talents Maxine, it’s in keeping with the overall offbeat freakiness of the EP, but the female vocals take it onto another level.
It’s arguably the EP’s most hypnotic and memorable tune. Maxine sings to you, she hums in your ear – and somehow her ethereal voice works well with hardtechno beats.
I´m Ready is a piece with a type of danceable rhythm that would even get your mom and dad dancing.
It has melodies that try to take you to the past, but then make you realise that the future is now.
The particularly forceful groovy of Your Tool, Your Weapon rounds things off. This track reminds you of how good Bassbottle is when he’s at the top of his game.
Air Pressure EP is already available on Sonic Speed Records profile on Beatport and Junodownload.
