Bassment Beats Vol 3 [Translation Recordings]

Translation Recordings are back to explore the shadow realm of drum & bass on the effortlessly moody and seriously powerful third instalment of the Bassment Beats series.

The Washington-based label is no stranger to getting deep and dark and does so without delay with the menacingly sparse opening track ‘Ichizoku Clan’ from Akinsa. This is followed by the mercilessly heavy ‘Tumbler’ by Fuj and then the abstracted ‘Coplanar’ from Mark Kloud which crashes one minute and soars on ethereal pads the next.

The record is closed out by Broken Promise’s futuristic ‘Blade’ and one from label founder RogueState who throws together serene pads and staggered drums for a memorable finish.
