Brooklyn Bass: Top Lists of 2013

It goes without saying that 2013 was chock full of great new releases and labels really pushing the envelope.

Aquarian Foundation – Language of the Hand EP [MH002] Mood Hut’s second release comes from fellow Canadians (Vancouver), Aquarian Foundation.

Montel – Eastside Kings EP [LPH020] Another fine release from Nik Mercer and Jacques Renault’s Let’s Play House. Montel delivers a strong EP that has elements of classic 90′s house – great keys and uplifting soulful vocals that gives a nice warm glow to the mood. I could listen to the deep bassline and floating...
