As regular readers will know, we love our music from all over the world and we also love bass heavy styles like dubstep. Several artists have been bringing together rootsy music from around the planet and dubstep. Our friends over at Generation Bass are about to release an awesome compilation album featuring the cream of the crop.
Transnational Dubstep is the first major compilation to document the fusion of dubstep and global roots music. It has been conceptualised & compiled by co-owner/editor & the driving force behind the Generation Bass blog, DJ UMB in cooperation with Six Degrees Records. The record pulls together some of the most exciting new producers in electronic music who are incorporating sounds from around the planet with the bass bin shaking thump of dubstep. The features Celt Islam, Bandish Projekt, EngineEarz , Fleck and many many more.
Six Degrees Records say:
By utilising influences from Cumbia to Balkan- Chinese to Indian- Middle Eastern to Japanese- the songs on this unique collection represent the cutting edge vanguard of a whole new electronic sub-genre that is ready to capture the ears and imaginations of listeners world-wide.
This 15 track hand picked compilation features established producers like the Midival Punditz and the Bandish Project while introducing breaking talent from around the bass music community including EngineEarz, Alexis K, Jajouka Soundsystem, Knowa Knowone, Shem and many more to a wider audience.
