ZoukBass Vol 3

Posted on 25 December 2013 by Caballo


Here at Tropicalbass we have supported Zouk Bass since ‘its inception’ as much as supporting Tarraxo, Kizomba and lots of African Genres!
So it is more than appropriate we are also covering the impressive ZOUKBASS vol 3, which has been curated by Generation Bass, Zouk Bass TV, and Latino Resiste, with a lot of musicians from their Catalog and also many new guests.

No music Preview, as we do not want to give priority to anyone. 20 BOMBS.


So to know more about the actual release here it is the whole PR:

It’s been less than a year since that infamous Boiler Room session last February 2013 when Mc Kalaf of Buraka Som Sistema uttered those now almost legendary words “Zouk Bass”.

It’s now one of the strongest and fastest-growing scenes of the ever expanding global bass Diaspora. Tarraxinha is also remaining intact within the sound as Zouk Bass moves forward with Western producers treading with respect and also very carefully with their interpretations. Some are also digging deep into the history of the roots versed in this Angolan creation.

Generation Bass, Zouk Bass TV & Latino Resiste once again join their forces to gather some of the most impressive ZB producers and the freshest tracks for the end of 2013, showcasing what is likely to be in store for 2014.

The compilation covers a wide spectrum of the Kizomba/Tarraxo influenced genre with pioneers like DZC Crew and Riot of Buraka Som Sistema. We have also discovered new found and exciting talents like Bison and Mala Noche who we feel are likely to play a key role in future developments.

We have the best of the new lot who have migrated to Zouk Bass from genres like Moombahton, Trap, Twerk or Dubstep. There’s the UK trio KJs who are fast becoming masters in a deep, sensual sound. The Middle East’s vastly underrated but always impressive SaBBo who released the first official Zouk Bass EP and Russia’s most exciting new producer Insane Fennel whose cinematic sound paints some of the finest film noire moments for the scene.

The compilation also showcases the point where Zouk Bass has started to create a hybrid sound with Twerk & Trap with the likes of rising star – JSTJR, another of America’s finest Zouk Bass trailblazers – Banginclude, Munchi’s prodigy – Morrison, another of Russia’s finest – Chuck Upbeat remixing DR’s young buck – Happy Colors, Argentina’s -Reptilian Commander and the newly formed MikeLuma (aka Banginclude) x TomPhonic representing.

There’s also a bunch of new names joining the ranks like Gingee, Rhythmstar, Chong X, Sauvage FM, Oktored, Squareffekt and Jameston Thieves who have all surprised us with their take on the scene.

This new volume, the 3rd in the series is a testament to how exciting and unique this new movement is and also shows how it is likely to continue to grow and evolve as time goes on.
