Hot on the heels of Synesthesia #2 we’re going straight back in with another technicolour selection of bass music from around the world just in time for summer. Vocals feature heavily on this release with Senseless resident MC Dialect showcasing his tough northern grime flex all over an eski-juke anthem (instro included) from Lenkemz who has been getting support from Diplo, Toddla, Basement Jaxx and many others recently. Next up we have one of our all time favourite artists and a big inspiration for the label, we’re very pleased to welcome Poirier with three absolute killers.

First up he teams up with long time collaborator Face T for the bass heavy ‘What’, lets just say sleng teng in a 2K12 style. On ‘Festival’ he channels African influences into a summer carival workout and then flips it for the slower reggaeton-inspired ‘Ladrillo Por Ladrillo’ featuring Boogat on vox. Finally we have a burning hot newcomer out of the furnaces in the Steel City, Walter Ego drops the monstrous Sidney St, a slab of futuristic 135 BPM grime named after the street where the legendary Niche club was held. More coming from him on Toddla’s Girls Music and UTTU this year amongst others. Finally we have a deeper version of Walter Ego’s track, not on the release, watch this space 😉



“Sick” – Toddla T
“Simple and effective. What I like” – Distal
“Heavy rotation here” – Dubbel Dutch


DJ SUPPORT: Toddla T, Skream, Hudson Mohawke, Distal, Dubbel Dutch, Hackman, Chrissy Murderbot, Stagga, Mumdance, Rattus Rattus, Star Eyes, Slick Shoota ++

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.
