Various - Ghetto Bass Mixed by Hervé (Music Response)

Ghetto Bass is a great name for this double CD compilation of bass driven bangers from fidgeting man Hervé. Originally emerging from under the same stone as Dave ’Switch’ Taylor, Trevor Loveys and Jesse Rose, and now a huge artist in his own right, Hervé makes music under a plethora of names and occasionally works with pals such as Sinden. This compilation is a full on bass assault, mixing up everything that fits in with the Count’s enthusiastic music style. Disc one concentrates on huge wah wah basslines, jumping beats and spat lyrics, with winners including Fake Blood’s retro tipped Mars and Jack Beats' wobbling Get Down. Disc two is more about stuttered beats, moody vibes and heavy basslines, with winners such as Zomby’s eerie Rumours & Revolutions and Benga’s nasty Crunked Up. A bass driven delight.
