As members of the ever-developing Pacific Northwest electronic music scene, Natasha Kmeto and Jason Burns have operated in the same general circles for the better part of a year now, but have never appeared on the same track before. That ended today when XLR8R premiered Burns’ remix of Dirty Mind Melt cut “Pleasure Delay”, a swinging cut that splits the difference between low end focused house (a la Dirtybird) and the pop-oriented garage of Disclosure. It’s a treat to have Kmeto’s pristine vocals and Burns’ swinging riddims on the same track. Stream below and download here.
It was only a matter of time before West Coast bass stalwarts Kastle and Jason Burns worked their respective magic in the studio together. The Don’t Believe EP was previewed a few weeks ago, but yesterday we got our first full taste of “Somebody”. an Anthony Hamilton sampling, West Coast take on Garage. California has always been home to the best of the best when it comes to American bass music, but artists like Kastle, Burns, 5kinandbone5 and the Body High crew are ramping up the production value and bringing even more attention to the Golden State. Stream “Somebody” below and look out for the EP, out on Kastle’s own Symbols Recordings on September 11.
