[Dark House/Future House:] Rootkit – Take A Shot


[Dark House/Future House:] Take a Shot – Rootkit

Fresh from the Confession label’s Alchemy Vol. 3  is a new song from Future House producer Rootkit. Track six on the album, “Take a Shot” combines heavy bass, and a dark atmospheric sound to create a future house track that exudes a full bodied, yet minimalist sound.

As the sampled voice in the background repeatedly commands “Take a Shot,” sounds of echoing synths and tribal sounding wails combine to creating a very industrial feel.

Preview the Alchemy Volume III EP here.

Also check out a previously blogged about remix of fellow label mate Tchami’s “World To Me” where Rootkit also adds a heavy atmospheric sound to the original track.

[Bass/Future House:] Tchami – World To Me (feat. Luke James) [Cazztek Remix]


Bass/Future House:

Tchami – World to Me (feat. Luke James) [Cazztek Remix]

Tchami’s “World to Me (feat. Luke James)” was one of the songs hot enough off his album to warrant its own EP. I’ve covered the Rootkit Remix & the Dillon Nathaniel Remix but there’s another flip just as epic that deserves not to be overlooked.

Cazztek’s remix of the song takes it in an interesting direction. A fusion of bass house, dance house and Future House this remix blends all these elements for an uplifting, atmospheric remix with plenty of energy.

A catchy beat and vocal sample play over the opening hook, “Baby, you should know/that you mean the world to me” with trance synths into a bass filled future house drop. The drop alone, heavy enough to fill dancefloors, refreshingly devolves back into broken down layers at the second chorus/full hook.

Ending out with warped bass and synths and then the return of the distorted vocal sample results in a song so upbeat, so funky, so different it’ll turn just about any person’s head.

[G House:] SONNY BANKS – Good Girls


[Gangsta House:]

The genre of house continues to evolve every day. Contained in the same sub-family as Bass House is G-House, house that frequently samples gangsta rap vocals alongside heavy bass. These types of songs are filthy, dirty and exactly the kind of tracks you’d hear in the deeper cuts of a rave, or somewhere they don’t play pop EDM.

Sonny Banks “Good Girls” is a great example of pumped up G-House (some of it is more downtempo) and is expectable from fellow Confession label mate to Dustycloud and Loge21.
