The future is (future) bass. Literally.
There’s a quality to electronic music that’s always enraptured me in a way that other genres, other instruments haven’t (or have– in different ways). Future bass is an excellent example; although it hasn’t been the first time I’ve listened to the genre, it’s changed me and my perspective on it since I heard artist DZZ’s Friend. The jolly whistles accompanied by equally whimsical beats gave an almost retro feel à la Porter Robinson that I didn’t expect (but certainly welcomed) the erratic bass. I’ve noticed that future bass has done that quite a bit within songs like Boombox Cartel’s Colors or Of The Trees’s Hall of Osiris (‘Duat’ is a great album- which I’ll be featuring next week!), while DJs like Mura Masa and Hyper Potions stick to familiar sounds and beats but stay innovative and, frankly, killer.
This playlist- which, for the record, will be pretty updated constantly- contains songs that represent future bass and those that are personal favorites. And yes, this playlist is also labeled “bath time” because future bass has so far been the best type of music to shower with. Nice.
