The continued evolution of UK Bass music has shown little sign of slowing down in 2012 and such is the demand for new and innovative sounds, the pressure really is on producers to come up with the goods. The first on the rise to have caught Uncle Albert's ears in 2012 is Hyperchord:
"The Hyperchord project was started at the beginning of 2012 focussing on non-genre specific bass music, concentrating on vibes and basslines. There are releases forthcoming on Mutant Bass (The Afflicted/Bang Bang Boom!) and UK Trends (Glitchlet/So Deep/SWNGSWNG) and already out is an official remix of StooShe – Love Me which is available for download from the StooShe website on their new 'Where's Stooshe' app.
There are elements of grime, dubstep, dnb, bassline, house and leftfield beats creating a dancefloor orientated sound with deep roots in garage falling under the expansive and indefinable term of 'bass music'.
Hyperchord has already been booked to DJ at the mighty Overkill stage at Glade festival this year and is currently taking bookings for 2012. The debut mix 'The Destruction of the 8-bit Warrior' showcases his genre-hopping, bass heavy sound (downloadable from Soundcloud)."
Although parallels can be made with experimental grime producer Mr Mitch, it is Hyperchord's remarkable versatility that stands out. Free from genre constraints but with a clear and conscientious attitude to his craft, the result is often both technically excellent and inventive. A sure fire hit for boldness alone, I've never heard anything quite like it before.
In light of such a glowing review, Uncle Albert is proud to also present an exclusive new Hyperchord track, free to download from the Uncle Albert Soundcloud. Let us know your thoughts on 'Eskilo':
