Following an unforgettable first edition of A Bass Odyssey in June, we reunite for the next session in January, bringing some much needed warmth to the deep Berlin winter. Once again we will be joined by some truly heavyweight artists from around the world, plus full-frequency sound reinforcement for that full body experience!

Hailing from Bristol, UK - a city long known for it's open-minded attitude and forward-thinking bass music scene - we are joined by the mighty Peng Sound Records - who with their debut release in 2012, "Find Jah Way", created one of the biggest anthems of the year, and one of the most sought after records for dub/step enthusiasts to date! Since then they have followed up with a number of quality releases and remixes from some of Bristol's biggest names in futuristic dub, such as Dubkasm, Gorgon Sound & Ishan Sound.

Around the same time in 2012, another future-thinking label was born in Leipzig, Germany. Since their first release they have succeeded in carving out a unique niche in the international bass music scene, floating somewhere between dub and jungle, always with a vintage yet futuristic sound, and pressed in the classic 7" / 45rpm format. We are very happy to invite 45Seven to Berlin for a lesson in "future roots"!

blessed love ,

ich wuerde das Forum gerne weiter online sehen. Vielleicht bin ich aber auch allein auf weiter Strecke damit.

-nicht alle Menschen haben oder wollen Facebook.
-hier wurde schon viel KNOWHOW aufgeschrieben, es waere schade drum
-Wo soll ich sonst die ganzen Sessions finden ? Wenn ich allein 2017 anschaue gabs hier doch recht gute Infos. 
-raus aus Babylon!

Ich habe einen Server und es waere kein Problem fuer mich die Seite zu hosten. Natuerlich macht das nur Sinn wenn wenigsten noch eine Person ausser ich hier hin und wieder reinschaut:)
Also wie schauts? Sollen wir die Seite sterben lassen? Wie sieht der letzte Rest das ?

This project just perfectly shows how multiple the paths of music can be…
After a long night session together at Yaam Berlin, I had to pick up Afrikan Simba from the hotel quite early due to inhuman check out times, so without sleep for me and little for him we went down into my studio to have a nice reasoning and after session chill out - listening to tunes and sharing a great vibe. As we still had an afternoon to spend until he had to catch his flight back to the UK, he suddenly asked me smiling: 'Do you have riddim? We might as well better use the time.' Always having loved his style and lyrics I of course agreed immediately and his question and remark made me pull out this riddim “Bubble Fi Roots” - as it was one of the tunes I was working on at the time with my bredda Dub Al-kimiya, still in a very early raw stage. But as he liked it, he caught a likkl sweet melody right away and started to scribble a few words, until he had a whole powerful song in no time.
We then took the raw sketch of those recordings and a sweet melodica version from a different session with the talented musician and producer Dr. Dubious from Italy to Planet Earth Studio to rework the initial programming with live drums and live bass with Berlin's dubmaster Aldubb, as well as live percussions in the Lion's Den studio with Brazilian percussionist K'boko Dub to give it a stronger feeling and live band vibe. Those multiple tracks were then arranged and first mixing sessions and experiments followed, as well as a rootikal dubplate redub by Aldubb at Planet Earth and a heavy steppas remix by Roots Raid who caught a vibe when passing through the Lion's Den and jamming with the multitracks before actually creating their own version with the vocal in their studio in France.
All in all a great journey and precious exchange, meeting, learning, growing experience, sharing our love for dub and music with wonderful people from all over…
As still the riddim did not come alive all the way we imagined it, as it's just not the same without an actual live band taking it rootikal style all together - full live band approach with fully-fledged musicians in contrast to some parts still being MIDI-programming - and as the idea just stuck in our head, we decided to take it even further, so I asked the great Rockers Disciples from France if they could imagine doing a RockDis rework of the riddim….
The new recordings were then given to the legendary dubmaster Manasseh - the same humble man I bought my first real mixing desk from, when I was living in Brixton - for proper treatment. With his incredible mixing skills and experience he finally gave the tune what it needed and made all elements fall into place nicely.
It's a great honour and joy to present to you the outcome of this collaboration… the final roots version with the Rockers Disciples mixed by Manasseh with some dubwise excursion - in the traditional stripped down drum and bass style - straight out of his studio and a steppas remix including a 'part 2 style' dub by Roots Raid.

Hallo zusammen,

es ist wahrscheinlich nicht zu übersehen, dass das Forum schon seit einiger Zeit immer weniger genutzt wird. In den Zeiten von Facebook und Twitter ist diese Entwicklung auch leicht nachvollziehbar. Eine Plattform wie diese macht in meinen Augen jedoch nur Sinn, wenn eine gewisse Mindestaktivität vorhanden ist. Bestimmt ließe sich mit etwas Aufwand hier auch wieder Leben rein bringen. Leider fehlt es mir dafür an der nötigen Zeit und Ideen.

Bevor ich das Forum schließe, möchte ich euch natürlich die Chance geben, es zu übernehmen. Ich würde es samt Domain und einem Export der Datenbank und des Webspaces übergeben. Für den Betrieb ist etwas technisches Know-How im Betrieb von Websites ratsam. Ihr könnt euch gerne hier im Thread oder per PM bei mir melden. Sollte sich bis zum Herbst niemand melden, werde ich das Forum leider schließen müssen. Mir hat der Betrieb des Forums immer Spaß gemacht und mir ist die Entscheidung zur Schließung wirklich nicht leicht gefallen.

Liebe Grüße
