Prague label Meanbucket has managed to stir waves in the bass scene in spite of its relatively short lifespan. With releases by Dance Mania’s Traxman and a healthy dose of Czech producers, the label has been on a steady rise. The latest case in point is its EP Massage Creep by Trusty&Freezer featuring a fine assortment of remixers. The bass-heavy, dub-inflected single now gets a visual treatment, a blurry, cut-up offering which only reinforces the track’s hypnotic feel.
Check out a special mix by the track’s creators below:
Over the past year, the Prague label Meanbucket has established itself as a leading Czech imprint, when it comes to modern urban dance music. Aside from releasing an assortment of local producers, Meanbucket also hit the nail with an EP by Chicago ghetto house legend Traxman whose production has appeared on such iconic staples as Dance Mania or Planet Mu.
I digress here though. Back to Trusty&Freezer and their Massage Creep. The EP features remixes by DJ Sliink, Artfruit , owner of the Polish label Concrete Cut, Dryman or Quime. All remain faithful to the original bass-heavy blueprint, some as in Dana Dramowicz aka Artfruit’s case start off in a mellow – almost IDMish vein – some slow down (Quime).
