And so, for a round up of the finest bass-led jams we turn to none other than Argentina’s Arcade.
A DJ and producer who’s ‘Contrincante’ release last year on Sheffield’s Squelch & Clap label caught many an ear, Arcade is a man who knows a thing or two about what works on the dancefloor, mixing up 4/4 bass tectonics with an ear for colour that takes in garage, ghetto-house, bassline and more (check his own ‘Tracking Down’ for the proof in the pudding).
His Hyponik mix rolls through cuts from the likes of Champion, DJ Sega, Seiji, Wiley and Objekt, with long, drawn out blends and some hefty imagination in the mix. The man himself will be kicking off a tour of South America on January 20, hitting Brasil, Venezuela and Chile, so if you reside in the Southern Hemisphere, you know what to do.
