It’s been a minute (over 300,000, if you want to get technical) since Bassnectar blew our collective minds and bodies away with his most recent full-length album, Noise vs Beauty. Now, the long-haired bass aficionado returns with a new remix of Joker’s Midnight, and believe me when I say this: it’s no joke. Joker’s original production [...]
“Purple” is a pretty prevalent theme in bass music. The term has become synonymous with a heady, hip-hop inspired subgenre of dubstep (using “dubstep” as a very large umbrella here). The sounds come from all over. Glasgow’s Rustie has jokingly called it “aquacrunk.” Starkey’s Seclusiasis crew in Philly calls it “street bass.” Many around [...]

It’s been almost 5 months since Joker’s Essential Mix dropped on BBC’s Radio 1. I don’t care what anyone else says, that mix was as good as it gets. Still, the mix left our mouths salivating, wanting more–some of the tracks on the mix hadn’t even been announced, let alone released. Well, Joker just dropped his Skitta on Kapsize [...]

All I see is purple. I’m blind to everything else. When you’ve got MartyParty on the mind, purple is as pervasive as white in a blizzard. Marty Folb, aka MartyParty of Deathstar and PANTyRAiD, continues his reign as the king of purple bass–those slow beats with low bass, hip hop hues, and glitchy elements: baby-making bass music. Marty’s [...]

Coming off of the excitement of Joker’s recent BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, I thought I’d bring you some of that wonderful purple bass music that we here at LessThan3 love. One of my favorite parts of his Essential Mix comes on about an hour into the mix, when three different versions of the Joker track On My Mind drop, and I’ve got all [...]

In late November, Bristol dubstep prodigy Joker dropped a very special Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1. Two hours chock full of his brand of hedonistic, yet hip dub. In the past, Joker has been a periodic point of talk here at LT3, delivering proper tracks like The Vision and Digidesign. This time around we’re treated with a journey spawned [...]

Bristol has always been home to one of the most vibrant and cutting edge music scenes in the UK, due in no small part to its huge West Indian population whose love of reggae and dub has influenced music trends in the city since the mid ’70s. After the decline of the ’90s attention wandered, and it wasn’t until the birth of dubstep in [...]

Bristol, UK-based dubber Joker, known for a distinct “purple” style of bass, is finally back with a new release.

Dubstep in North America today largely revolves around the burgeoning “brostep” subgenre–a reference to the increasingly mainstream nature of productions with their hip-hop style vocals, mid-range oscillations and less of those truly sub-bass frequencies. The genre has truly grown a life of its own on this side of the pond; guys like [...]
