Bass Kleph July 2011 DJ Mix by 360 Remixes

 

Bass Kleph Presents

Vacation
RELEASED 18 JULY

Bass Kleph aka Stu Tyson is Australia’s biggest dance music export. The former rock drummer turned DJ/producer and Beatport hero (several No.1’s, Top 10’s and counting) has spent the last few years taking his brand of tough, jacking house and techy beats far beyond his native Southern hemisphere.

He’s had releases signed to Great Stuff, Toolroom, Defected, Stealth, Definitive, and beyond. Remix requests are in abundance; with re-rubs for Jesse Voorn, D. Ramirez, Moguai & Westbam and many others testament to his in-demand status. Plus there are multiple live tours of the UK, Europe, US, and farther afield, spurred on by the online and blog buzz that has taken him from Antipodean secret to floor destroying global contender.

‘Bass Kleph: Presents’ captures his recent highlights on a debut compilation that oozes with funk, class, and hypnotic grooves. His skill in building complex rhythms and hooks is evident at all times across the album. Heavily percussive sections underpin layered melodies, while a liberal use of samples, keyboard riffs and occasional vocals gives his music real character.

Tyson’s ability to weave such rhythmic mastery stems from the fact that while most kids are still at school at age 15, Bass Kleph was touring as the drummer of the hugely successful Australian rock band, Loki. Playing live in grubby rock venues taught him that there’s a dynamic to making crowds dance. A rhythm won’t bite without the hypnotism of an irresistible hook – and even the most nagging hook won’t move the feet unless its accompanied by the thunder of a serious rhythm section.

Really, the rock world had no chance of holding on to him. As Bass Kleph says, “I remember when Loki got its first album back from mastering. I’d been listening to Squarepusher and The Prodigy. Everyone else was stoked with the way the album sounded – but I thought ‘why are the drums so quiet? Why is it all about the guitar?'”

Rock music’s loss has been electronic music’s gain. Bass Kleph’s ear for live performance gives his productions an intensely animated feel, and, with a new live show featuring vocalist and co-writer Chris Arnott currently being roadtested in Australia, he’s marrying the best of both worlds to devastating effect. His 2011 DJ tour schedule is already booking through to 2012, including his third and fourth US tours (following 10 dates in 15 days in March); his first performances in South Africa and Japan; his first main room slot at Ministry of Sound and a headline slot at the huge Rockit Open Air Festival in Holland; and, of course, the nine ‘homecoming’ dates in Australia.

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
