The Street Bass Summer 2013 jumps off with the third installment of the widely popular (and always free) Street Bass Bootlegs compilation series. It’s been nearly 330 days since Street Bass tsars, Starkey and Dev79, delivered the last installment of Street Bass Bootlegs and it has been well worth the wait. Dev79 presents Street Bass Bootlegs Vol. 3 is bigger than its predecessor – a staggering 18 tracks – that ebbs and flows effortlessly through extraterrestrial crunk, atmospheric R&B, scattershot hi-hat grime, and gully Martian hiphop. Or, simply put, the all-consuming NSFW swagger that is Street Bass!
With remixes and original works from vanguard producers around the globe, Street Bass Bootlegs Vol. 3 is a collection of 18 scorching heaters primed to ignite club speakers straight through the summer. From Milan’s Aquadrop to London’s Son of Kick to Edmonton’s Knight Riderz to the ATLien triumvirate of MANIKAN, Taste Tester, and Distal, Dev79 presents Street Bass Bootlegs 3 soundtracks the international Street Bass movement.
Among the remix highlights are Dev79’s snare roll tornado remix of Blok Boyz and Oschino’s “Philly Boy Clap” as well as his juke-leaning rework of Mz Bratt’s “Selecta”; Starkey’s singular brand of sonic Tourettes keep pace perfectly beneath Danny Brown’s signature syncopated flow on “Grown Up”. Bombé’s ethereal dub reconstruction of Mary J. Blige’s “Ooh” provides for a haunting closer, while .rar Kelly revamps KW Griff & Porkchop’s Bmore Club anthem, “Bring In The Katz” into the bleakest technoir this side of Berlin.
Just as dynamic as the remixes are the original compositions peppered throughout Street Bass Bootlegs 3. Aquadrop’s “Plaza” is an explosive hybrid of grime, trap, and pitch-bent synth roaring beneath Rick Ross sampled vocals, while King secures his sub bass sovereignty is unparalleled with his “Alright”. Distal departs from his signature Atlantian fookwork with the soulful “For You Girl”, while his Southern fried brethren, MANIKAN & Taste Tester, deliver a felonious one-two punch “Back2Back”. But, to be honest, to even say “highlights” is a misnomer. All 18 tracks bring equal force to the sensatory Voltron that is Dev79 presents Street Bass Bootlegs Vol. 3.
