Release date: 21st October 2013
This new release from Barcelona based Volatil, his first on the Basal imprint, shows exactly why he's gained a solid reputation both in the city and further afield.
With 3 tracks from Volatil and a remix from Basal label mate Aiko “Unify” presents tunes that blend familiar underground sounds and dubbed out production with some of the most current dancefloor styles.
“Understandings” builds like a deep tech tune only to drop down to a dubbed out number with lurching syncopated percussion and rumbling sub.
Title track “Unifier” brings some urgency to the proceedings, with an upfront rhythm that comes somewhere between deep dubstep and ukfunky and a hypnotic acid bassline menacing it's way through the tune.
“U R We” sees a much more spartan and spaced out soundscape with garagey percussions, chopped samples and dank sounds competing in a delay drenched dub to claustrophobic effect.
The Aiko mix of “Understandings” reimagines the track with lush pads and delicate piano melodies against a deep and driving percussive backdrop.
“Unify” presents both Volatil and Basal as names to watch for the discerning bass enthusiast.Volatils´s Soundcloud

Release date: 1st July 2013
Any Shape got shaped by 2 waveforms (From Peru and Denmark) that came from far away and fused together in Barcelona. Merged together the vibrations of these frequencies are generating a unique sound constructed with different forms and textures;
Hypnotic waveforms reverbing throughout the world and taking shape as deep bass lines, melancholic melodies and techno-tinged percussions…
“Tarapoto” takes the listener deep into the Peruvian jungle to partake in an ancient shamanic ritual of spiritual awakening and metabolically transformation. Once the elixir is consumed dimensions shift and the serpent coils tight around the perception of time and space. Let the tribal drums be your guide and let yourself be teleported by the sacramental bass.
Continue the journey “365 above” sea level through cosmic planes of shifting bass lines and digital vibrations as Shamanic tentacles pull the listener deeper into the shadow lands. There is no need to struggle…this trip will end with positive enlightenment that will make your aura glow.
RDG uncovers cosmic creatures and pushes them front and center to dance around the ritual bonfire with his darker sci-fi take on “Taraporto”. Here Interdimensional Bass line beings morph and shift into serpent like shapes to the sound of the drums. A cosmic dance between this world and theirs.Any Shape´s Soundcloud

Aiko is an artist from Valencia – Spain, now living in Barcelona which Basal label has had an eye on his work for a while.
The first track Diagonal has a deep looming science fiction intro, which breaks down into an organic, pulsing, bass driven journey, with distant tribal drums. The bass is an exceptionally well produced exercise in restraint which feels like the heartbeat of a new breed of Terminator. The track manages to be both driving and yet somehow relaxing simultaneously and it really works. It is a fine well engineered track and one for the thinking crew!
Trains, has as well a pensive, ominous intro, which swells and drops into a more percussive stepper of a track. It has minimal dub influences with a proper use of delay and deep vibes.
Definitely one for the head nodders on the floor!

Rastronaut may have been born in Portugal but his current state of consciousness floats somewhere between our galaxy and a parallel universe of mystical bass.
“Fugitive Dub” uses inner sounds from outer space to shift and mutate across the cosmos like an alien life form spawned from the mind of a Jamaican witch doctor.
“Legba” is sci-fi voodoo which takes you on an orbit across futuristic worlds inhabited by tribesmen who worship subwoofers in ritualistic ceremonies.
Likewise, Shcuro keeps “Fugitive Dub” (on the Run remix) set in a post apocalyptic techno cityscape of industrial decay.
Next stop the Rastrosphere….Rastronaut´s Soundcloud

Shcuro - Distant Shores EP
After releasing tracks as part of projects like Missão Apolo and Polymers, Shcuro starts his solo career as a producer with his debut ep, that will be released the 29 of October 2012 at Barcelona based label Basal.
Shcuro explores the fusion of dub landscapes with bass-driven dancefloor vibes, filling them with dark atmospheres and swinging techno / house rhythms.
Distant Shores smoothly moves from more techno orientated sounds, into the syncopated rhythmic sections of "Grota" to bassier realms, like the loud drum groove and gritty low end on "Ursa".
The record leads to the sea cliffs along the wild coast of "Cabo da Roca", the westernmost point of continental europe "where the land ends and the sea begins". When walking through the cliffs sometimes cut by narrow water courses it's possible to discover small beaches, some of them a bit hidden and with a difficult access, awakening thus further the curiosity about these wild seashores lost in time and space.Shcuro´s Soundcloud

Mic Ryan - Winter (Full length album)
This new release from Basal label is a full-length album, which consolidates the label's deep hypnotic sound with a collection of tunes from new Danish signing Mic Ryan.
Winter explores a vast icy soundscape through a variety of styles, from detroit tech, electro and glitch to industrial and haunting soundtrack style backdrops tied together with a consistent stripped groovy dubstep production.
Whether for use on the discerning dancefloor or for more laid back listening, this new release is essential for any bass “connoisseur”, further establishing Basal's commitment to dubbed out quality and establishing Mic Ryan as a versatile new talent on the scene.Mic Ryan´s Soundcloud

Dr. Zoidberg - Neural Transistion EP
Joel Lopez, aka Dr. Zoidberg (Who is currently diagnosing in Barcelona) fuses global instruments with organic soundscapes which take the listener on a cosmic journey into a universe of transitionary sounds. On “Eastern Whisper” he weaves a sitar with industrialized sci-fi Bass lines that plunge you deep into a mystic land that is both ethereal as well as post apocalyptic and cyborg ridden. “Third Wave” builds as an euphoric escalation that reaches a celestial plateau of hypnotic bass lines, synths and tabla percussions. Part science. Part spiritual mysticism. “Neural Transitions” is a ying-yang elixir worthy of the good Dr.’s prescription.Dr Zoidberg´s Soundcloud

We couldn't be happier with the response that we've had from artists both domestic and exotic to our invitation to participate in our alternative to the rather dull and somewhat ridiculously priced corporate advert posing as cultural event that is SONAR. For our final day, we're going deep with some of the heaviest hitters that TERRA has hosted over the last 6 months returning to team up with resident evils to finish with a bang.
