As this season of NuHouse (’90s-inspired house) continues to develop, the Brits are leading the charge by mutating and crosspollinating multiple genres to keep it fresh – usually on a monthly basis. Bristol duo Alex Homes and Adam Gorsky, last heard as part of Forget Me Not, blend acid house, a bit of electro, hip-house, dark vibes, and a touch of progressive for the brilliant “Bassline.” It feels simple and stripped-down, yet is masterfully-produced with an insanely full sound, not to mention the sick bassline (hence the title). The vocalist, credited as Get Along Gang, fits the track perfectly with a chilled flow that is catchy and will get you to “move, move your waistline.” DJs afraid of lower tempo records (this one is about 124) should know that not only can you pitch this up while keeping its vibe, but also the acappella is included on the Bassline EP (along with two more hot vocal tracks, “Don’t Want You Back” and “On Point”), so that they can create their own remix or mash-up. Or they can get the surprisingly dark house mix by Kenny Dope- which is cleverly titled “O’Gutta” – one of the wittiest double entendres of recent memory.
