Three titans of bassline have teamed up for a brand new collective. T2, TRC and Mr. Virgo have been working together lately as Bass Mafia. They dropped their debut track, the appropriately named "Originators Riddim", back in January, and today we've got their second production, "4 The Cru". T2 told us over email that they've made "quite a few tracks together now and the energy in the sessions we have is crazy. We don't really book out studios—we just carry our setup with us and meet up anywhere, which is actually kind of mad. We're just trying to show people that you don't need to spend thousands on a setup and hardware to get where you need to. You just need to have ideas and be creative."
Where "Originators Riddim" was a straight-up 4x4 banger, "4 The Cru" is a little calmer, almost Balaeric at times. Whether or not we get an album or anything like that, it's good to see three producers still pushing themselves and the scene forward after so many years. Catch the trio live in action at Bristol's Analog club on April 14.
