Dance music pioneers I.D. & Baobinga follow the critically acclaimed debut – 2008’s ‘Big Monster’, album of the month in DJ Mag – with a fresh new work that outlines the burgeoning sound of bass music in the UK. Called ‘Bass Music Sessions‘, the album confirms their forward-looking approach, as it will be released for free through their website at bassmusicblog.com, using platforms such as bandcamp.com, soundcloud.com, and Facebook to take advantage of the flexibility and possibilities for promotion open to artists in 2010.
Since the last album, the pair have released on labels spanning the bass music spectrum; from US hiphop innovators Mad Decent to dubstep legends Earwax, from NY crew Trouble&Bass to Portugal’s Enchufada, home of Buraka Som Sistema, from Tayo’s groundbreaking Cool & Deadly label to a remix of the Wu Tang Clan on BabyGrande. You may also recognize their sound due to a remix of STANTON WARRIORS ‘Blaze’ on last semesters STANTON SESSIONS III radio mix.
They’ve also brought new ideas to the table – in 2009 they started bassmusicblog.com, which, with giveaways of exclusive tracks and mixes, became one of the most popular blogs in its field, and November saw the first release on Baobinga’s new label Build Recordings – kicking off with another Baobinga & I.D. track, Tongue Riddim, featuring Roska on remix duties.
‘Bass Music Sessions‘ will be available at labels.bassmusicblog.com on March 1 as a free download.
