Here is part two of the Synesthesia series celebrating Senseless Records’ fifth birthday. Each LTD edition record (250 copies) comes in a hand screen printed sleeve with a poster inside illustrating one of the five senses, each time by a different artist.

For this one, it’s sight. Musically that’s all about looking forward so three of the best new bass music producers have been drafted in. First up Mak & Pasteman, a duo who have been making a lot of noise with releases on Sound Of Sumo and Shifting Peaks. The duo drop ‘Void’, a high tech bass bomb built around a carefully chosen sample that devastates right from the start. Bobby Friction has already playlisted it on his BBC show.

Next up NKC, who impressed with last years ‘Pyramids’ EP, drops ‘Errthing’ matching up some ballroom house attitude with a huge siren like bassline and a stuttering 4×4 beat, early support from Ikonika and Greenmoney. Then we get German duo JTRP, known for their work on T.William’s highly regarded Deep Teknologi imprint, ‘Nothing To Do Here’ builds rattling percussion and their signature tech-atmosphere into a deadly drop that comes out of nowhere, built for basements from Berlin to Brooklyn. Digital exclusives come from NKC with the retro futuristic house jam ‘Finale’ and JTRP with their basic channel-meets-UK funky ‘Apparition’.

Artwork comes from Brighton based Katie Scott who’s arresting and varied work is intricate and detailed, balancing technical ability with a wild creative streak.

SPACE, LADIES 'MEDUSA EP'

“Off The Hinges” – Chrissy Murderbot (Planet Mu)
“Straight In My Set” South London Ordnance (Lucky Me)
“Sentel remix is amazing” – Distal (Tectonic)


Chrissy Murderbot, Distal, Tomb Crew, Martelo, Cedaa, South London Ordnance, Warlock.



Space, ladies Medusa was signed within a day of it being uploaded to Soundcloud after the label were introduced to their music by fellow Senseless artist The Phantom. Also like the Phantom they’ve cooked up their own very unique and exciting sound, fusing elements of classic house and electro with modern bass music. Medusa is minimal in the best possible way building in to a wide open breakdown with time-stretched vocals before snapping back in to a tight 808 rhythm and detroit-like stabs. Fields is all about lush atmospheric pads and a very well chosen vocal sample from a famous singer who better remain nameless.

A great set of remixes comes from Mary Ann Hobbes favourite IO who keeps things old school and house, then Kiev who blends in UK funky influences by way of Venezuela. Sentel, also Polish drop a huge techno style bomb and Sarantis does his high-octane juke with characteristic style and swagger.
