BASS CLEF - Carnival Bass
10th December 2010
The London-dwelling producer and live performer has earned himself a considerable cult following over the years, first turning heads with his distinctive 2006 debut LP, A Smile Is A Curve That Straightens Most Things – which combined influences from grime, dancehall, dubstep, with an all too rare dose of humour, heartbreak and humanity worked into the equation .
The subsequent EPs, Hackney Centralist, Opera and Zamyatin Tapes Vols. 1 and 2, found him refining that mixture to increasingly potent effect, and February 15 sees the release of a new Bass Clef full-length, May The Bridges I Burn Light The Way, via the Blank Tapes label which has been his home since day one. Bass Clef current album “May The Bridges I Burn Light The Way” has brought a new sense of carnival to the heavy dance party.
He is a live act with real dance-floor pressure, his live show bypasses laptop/looping and has an infectious and giddy allure. Hot as hell party-starter. Following countless club appearances at Big Chill, Sonar, Fabric, Bloc Weekend the Bass Clef one-man soundsystem is now in full effect across the globe with debut shows in Australia and a full EU tour 2010. Standout cut ‘Promises’ has garnered radio play from Huw Stephens, Mary Anne Hobbs & Trevor Nelson already and has yet to be promo’d. Now he makes his Debut appearance in Belfast bringing his carnival feel to the Black Box for a christmas shindig with bass! www.myspace.com/bassclefbass http://bass-clef.blogspot.com/
