We can’t quite keep up with the enviable pace of production of the producer Side9000 whose releases on Prague labels like Owntempo or Meanbucket have cemented his mark on the Czech dance scene. Previously renowned for his dubstep productions (primarily on Owntempo), his current outings indicate a more dirty, booty turn. Hot on the heels of his warmly received EP Raindance (and the EP’s equally well received remixes), Side9000 returns with another Meanbucket corker. This time, the prolific Prague producer infused his sonic lexicon with a dose of bass, booty and juke. With tracks like the sun-kissed Beach, and the two other breezy but still his trademark dark tunes, Homework is an ideal soundtrack to a hazy summer’s evening.
Two of Czech Republic’s biggest bass fiends join forces to deliver a percussive post-dubstep offering. Trusty’s refix has been getting the most of the attention, uniformally praised by the likes of Night Slugs’ Bok Bok or Warrior One. Aside from Trusty’s refashioning, Italy’s Ckrono was also responsible for the remixing duties with moombahton as his preferred sonic statement. Deep basslines on the backdrop of the timely tropical riddims make Raindance a hotly tipped summer anthem.
