LoKo - Bassline Secret (OUT NOW!!!!) by .LoKo published on 2012/10/18 13:25:28 +0000 LoKo Bassline Secret / The Shadows Program Worldwide release: 12th Nov 2012 Those who keep a close eye on the underground will already be well acquainted with the name LoKo. An integral part of the Bristol bass music scene LoKo has had his tracks remixed by KOAN Sound, co-founded and subsequently released intense remixes and original tracks on Screwloose Records and now gained Andy C’s approval as he joins the ranks of one of D&B’s most exciting new labels, Program. Just one listen to ‘Bassline Secret’ and you’ll understand why Andy C has thrown his weight behind it. At once a grinding slice of modern drum & bass with a heavy nod to the nostalgic days of the Prototype Years, this is an undeniably fresh take on a classic sound. Skipping breakbeats and grinding bassline combinations sit effortlessly in the mix with each sound playing its part without overpowering the others. Here LoKo has achieved a fine balance that will make ‘Bassline Secret’ stand out from the crowd - in the club, on your iPod or blasting out of your car as you zoom down the motorway to your next D&B night! Flip over and ‘The Shadows’ showcases LoKo’s production talent once again with a massive call-and-response bassline hook. Yet again the Bristol-based producer displays his ability to update a classic drum & bass sound with some modern studio techniques and some fresh ideas by subtly manipulating and progressing the interplay of the bass sounds throughout the tune. With a high level of attention to detail, this will undoubtedly find a place in plenty of DJs sets this winter and with his debut Program release LoKo has categorically proven himself as a artist to watch.
