Reviews about DK8 - Murder Was The Bass (20):
B Side all the way. Ravey Swedish goodness with some beautiful/eerie pads. The pads emphasise the bass line which the A side lacks and for a short while it feels like listening to a British bleep era techno track before that ferocious bassline kicks back in. B side all the way.
Is there anyway i can listen to tune first or how do i do it ?
Oh my goodness this record is good. I had absolutely no intention of buying anything today as I'm poor as hell. With the exception of this record.
Music that breaks down walls. Literally. One of the best from the Golden Era of Swedish Techno.
Rich Vulture
Carl Cox destroyed the long-gone Centro-Fly in NYC with the orig in 2003...it's all about the orig with that hard hoover sound.
13 Year old track is still the baddest tune in my bag.
Class tune that still sounds huge today. Recently updated by Eagles & Butterflies, but this is still the one to have.
Does anyone have suggestions for other records that come close to this great track?I'm talking about the energy, tempo, varieties of sounds.
Thanks a lot for your suggestions! !I'll check them out.Best regards, Jarno.
jarnoplum Does anyone have suggestions for other records that come close to this great track?I'm talking about the energy, tempo, varieties of sounds. I do remember this track very well from back in the day. It got support from all the big techno dj's. The track does stand out because of the sheer power it sends out. In that matter is it quite difficult to find one that is exactly like it but I'll give it a shot. I'm presuming you're looking for tracks that stand out amongst the crowd.comparable tracks from the era would be:- electric deluxe, krekc or maybe even three o' three by speedy j (aka Jochem Paap or public energy)- manipulated by Ben Sims in the Adam Beyer version- acid come by secret cinema (be sure to check this one !!!)- confusion by pump panel (you will know this one from the movie blade)some newer tracks:- pressure lights by slam and Gary Beck (Mr. Beck btw is a specialist in this kind of high energy techno)- absolute by Roberto Capuano- I wanna go bang by Bjarkisome artists that play this kind of power techno:Dave Clarke (especially the old stuff), Cari Lekebusch, the advent, dj RushHope you find something you like !if you have any more questions or you'd like to talk about tracks some more, just follow mixed emotions on mixcloud https://www.mixcloud.com/m-emo/Feel free to post questions or remarks, always prepared to talk techno :)
jarnoplum Does anyone have suggestions for other records that come close to this great track?I'm talking about the energy, tempo, varieties of sounds. Mojado 'Kaktus', Adam Beyer 'Remainings III' (DK remix), Kobbe 'chromosphere', Cliff Tangredi 'Shimmer', Renato Cohen 'pontape', and probably some of the early Cirez D stuff. Hope that helps
Personally i think the original is the reason to own this vinyl, a techy breaks affair perfect for transitions between tech/Dub/prog and many other genres. At 143bpm it may need to be slowed down a lil but if you want a hands in the air moment with one of the most reckognisable Loops in underground music history, Here is your winner.
When I first heard this amazing but agressive track a smile was seen on my face. There were was rave signals I didn't heard for a while. Another must have record I thought. And I was right so often. Everytime I played it loud for the people the whole crowd started to explode and the whole floor was burning. Forget the B-Side. It is an average track. But the A-Side is a straight shooter and a powerfull weapon for technomaniacs.
HOLY CRAP...........I don't believe it, this tune HAS actually blown out my bass bin! I was looking at the discogs comments on this tune and thought I'd give it a listen before selling it, and it's actually damaged the subwoofer on my surround system. I can't believe it, I was literally just reading about this tune damaging soundsystems, now everything sounds farty and broken! The Bass EQ on my mixer was (only) slightly up, but even so, this has never happened before. This is going to cost me a fortune to fix, and much more than the few quid that I can sell this for... I am not happy... Great tune, heavily overplayed thanks to UK radio stations. CHECK YOUR LEVELS carefully before playing, or you may end up with a totally busted soundsystem like mine.
@moosifer: You shouldn't have thought about selling it. God punishes immediately & Karma is a B*tch :-)
I picked this out of my collection the other week (playing the Rework as always) and it still sounds as good as it did in May 2003 when I listened to it in the record store I bought it from. I remember then thinking the Rework would make the crossover to the hard house scene and knock me sideways, I first heard Anne Savage play it at Slinky, Opera House one fine Friday night in July that same year. It is THE track of 2003 that can still hold its own over three years later.
Mixmag first introduced me to the love affair I have with the B side of Jasper Dählback and Thomas Krome’s ‘Murder Was The Bass’. Featured in their top 10 traxx of 2003, I thought I might download the ‘Reworked’ version just to hear it. Described as a “techno bassbin destroyer”, I first thought I had a bad mp3 because of a deep fuzzy growling noise through the song. Later I found that this was actually the bassline! Skip forward a month of playing this song over and over on my mp3 player, and I went to Cairns in Australia for a holiday. Here I went to a small but friendly dance music store, only to promptly find a single vinyl copy of ‘Murder Was The Bass’. After settling myself down and attempting to describe the track to the workers there, one employee played the track on the loud speakers through out the store. Merely thirty seconds later, a young male swiftly entered the store, asked what the song was and bought the vinyl before I even had a chance. To my dismay, I have never seen a copy since! Twisted, dirty and utterly hypnotising, the ‘Reworked’ version is still one of my favourite traxx ever and changed the way I saw Techno forever. The sequential hi-hats and builds are superb, not to mention the immense breakdown. Tune!
The rework is pure filth...here's a few words best used to describe this track...evil, dark, brooding, filthy. This track is downright wrong....which is why i play it in all of my techno sets!
One track guaranteed to pack a floor and destroy it in the process! The bass is employed "on" the kick (instead of on the off-beat on most dance tracks), this makes for a very aggressive vibe. Most people seem to say the original is best, but there seems to be some confusion here. The Original is the breakbeat "rave" sounding side, it is the Re-Work that is the techno track.
Best crossover release of 2003. Not as hard to find as you'd think, but some still have trouble grabbing a copy. Shows ya how much everyone likes this song. Careful when playing this song out, it has been known to blow out subs before, no lie! Don't piss off the sound technician.
