Future Bass Album - Review + Competition

Album Review: FUTURE BASS from Ministry of Sound

If you are a keen follower of the blog and have checked out my latest mix you should know by now my change in music style over the last month or so, well this album fits perfectly while opening my eyes to so much more unearthed bass music for example Eliphino's "More Than Me".

Released by Ministry of Sound I think they have got the track selection bang on including Pete Tong's previous Essential New Tune "Infinity" by Infinity Ink, Justin Martin's epic "Ruff Stuff" and Shadow Child's "String Thing" championed by pretty much every worthwhile DJ going.

With over 2 hours full to the brim of bass music it has been a joy listening to the double CD, it shall be joining me in Ibiza this weekend where it will be on repeat throughout the week!

This is definitely an album you want to end the summer with, due out Sept 10th and available on Double CD (Amazon) or digitally (iTunes).

2 CDs of the most championed underground bass music
Featuring Disclosure, Julio Bashmore, Rudimental, Eats Everything, Rustie, TNGHT & more

Ministry of Sound presents Future Bass, a 2CD journey through some of the key future bass tracks that have been pivotal to its development, as well as some of the latest beats to have recently emerged. With acts such as Disclosure and Rustie making the Radio 1 B-List and well respected DJs such as Annie Mac and Pete Tong championing the sound, it seems like the perfect time to collate all the best bits of the genre so far.

CD1 kicks off with the most wanted DJ’s on the scene, Disclosure and their recent club hit Control. Their infectious two step sound sets the tone for both discs, with Control commencing CD1 and their remix of Jessie Ware’s Running which catapulted them to fame on CD2. CD1 then delves into some of the biggest names in Future Bass, with the stomping hip hop inspired beats of Hudson Mohawke and Rustie leading into the sparse and atmospheric Vehl from Kidnap Kid and the funky tones  of Karma Kid’s remix of Bwana, Baby Let Me Finish.

CD2 focuses on the deeper side of future bass demonstrating the varied nature of the genre. With established names Jamie Jones, Eats Everything and Mosca’s latest offerings intermingled with the young fresh sounds of artists such as Pusherman, Dusky and TNGHT’s erratic noises this disc represents a broader interpretation of future bass in comparison to disc 1.
All in all, this album brings together the key future bass tracks that have been pivotal to its development, as well as some of the latest beats to have recently emerged. This album is the first Ministry of Sound album to feature Aurasma.
