Review: theBasement Discos Chapter Four Edits

Spanish label theBasement Discos return with free groove infused goodies to lift your spirits during lockdown.


Since its launch last year, theBasement Discos have hosted the likes of Jazzman Wax, Larry Houl (one of my current favs on the scene) and Purple Ice, as well as a signature free edit series.


For the fourth edition of their free edit series, the label brings together artists from across the planet for a release dripping in funky vibes - accompanied with a real sense of togetherness and collaboration in these trying times.


I immediately felt in better spirits from the get go of the release. Jan Janssen's 'Don't Waste My Time' is an uplifting number with an irresistible baseline and filtered vocal snippets which have become a key ingredient to the disco and house fusion that the label champions. TheBasement Discos head Sam Paradise carries through the disco flavours for his, surprisingly, debut release on the label in 'Movin' Straight Ahead' with spacey 80s like synths and groove infused percussive roles until Karoy fuses a pounding kick with boogie inducing keys in 'On Silver Wings I Fly'.


Changing up the vibe Azuro's 'Emmanuel's Groove' injects afro vocals over stuttering synths, whilst Ayo'B finishes up with crunchy claps and Spanish guitar licks in the bouncy club-like anthem 'Collateral Burna'.


We personally think you'd be a fool to pass this one up and missing out on some overwhelming positive vibes. Check it out below:
