    The weekend has landed and all that matters now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. You've got 48 hours off the 9-5, it's time to unbutton your hustle and breathe vigor back into life. Whether it be through losing your soul on the dance floor or grooving to it, we have your soundtrack covered. The EARMILK Weekend Selector, an exclusive guest mix series where we invite the latest budding talent from behind the booth to usher you through all the boozie and jam. From your morning bedside to tonight's evening social, your weekend selector is here to fill a void of good taste and allow fresh connections to flow vicariously.

    Fresh faced duos are a plenty, but few can stand up to the peachy spin Slap In The Bass have put on a genre that many feel is on its way out. Over the recent years electro house has taken quite a battering as the genre spread itself out thinly across the board leading to strung out trends that would rise and fall overnight. The result, producers and DJs have jumped ship. Some trading in their dignity for big room reverb, while others sinking deeper into their own madness to pull out bizarre ideas fitted for niche genres between garage and techno. But some are still on board, setting a course to where the dull yet fiery leads of dutch house left off. Coming to a head when the world renowned Crookers cracked their old hands and returned to the mixing desk to release an LP under the moniker Dr. Gonzo, a monolith atop of a new twist on house music that indulged in a sound more tropical than trancey. This is where Slap In The Bass fits in, along with artists like Wax Motif, Botnek, and Savage Skulls these two boys from Hungary have been sampling the fire circles of the wild with ethnic chants, tribal percussion, and furry calls. Their tracks are lush with a palette of colours from dim low ends to sugary leads that sound like peering in to a fresh bag of skittles. Incorporating the edge of electro house bangers with grinding dutch swing, while leaving plenty of room for the drawing board to push forward thinking and innovation.

    A reason to start off the weekend below 120 BPM, "Slowine" by Schlachthofbronx brings out the duo's variety right from the get go as it paces up to dirtybird's juke number "Booty Clap". The tape washes itself down with dreamy vibes from remixes by Cardopusher and Mendoza, throwing on some pants and heading out to the dirty dancehall to dagger with the raw works of Sinden and Swick. There's no doubting the mix hits a peak when the boys cue up their best work yet, a collaboration with Keith & Supabeatz called "Smoka". Released earlier this week on No Brainer Records, the track sits comfortably on the Beatport charts and is sure to get a full rinsing when festival season kicks in. The two go on to explore more distorted boundaries with Felix Cartal's latest single "Domo" and a B-side off their latest EP called "Exhale". Tying it up with Disco of Doom meets Astronomar and an overlooked jam by Eats Everything, Slap In The Bass prove that they are a solid booking for a crowd bred with stingy alt critiques and your average wandering partygoers.
