Batty Bass player Dan Beaumont stops by for 2 more slices of BB killer floor fillers...

DSK - What Would We Do (Eight Minutes of Madness)

This is an absolute party banger... a demented horn riff weaves in and out of a brilliantly constructed house groove for literally eight minutes of madness. I think this might be my favourite record ever... you can almost smell the smoke machine, poppers and sweat when you listen to it, it's total realness.

R Tyme - Use Me (MK dub)

This is a proper slab of detroit house music. A classic MK remix with all his definitive hallmarks - skippy hats, infectious bassline, organ riffs, string sweeps and sliced up vocals. Jacking and deep tis is unbeatable club music that still sounds perfect.

2 Batty Bass favourites from Deboa

There's a long selection of tracks I love to drop at Batty Bass that go down well, Oh Superman, Mirror Dance, Midnight, Brooklyn New York but the two I've chosen are tracks that are a little bit different. Tracks that, the first time I heard, I knew were right for BBB. For me they're individual, funky, brukky, bassy, they mirror what I see and feel at BBB

Dapayk and Padberg - 'Khes'
I drop this a lot - always in the box. Tribal beats with a snap to it. The vocal is simple but works - I'm still not bored of it after almost 2 years.. The melody is simple too but when you listen closely to it you begin to hear these cheeky bleeps and boops. I picture these pre-colonial African drummers communicating with each other..I still love music, boom, boom, boom..

Rebolledo - 'Amigos Coemme'
This track is totally different from most pieces out there. Its stripped down, tough beats, with quirky vocals that I don't understand. But you can just imagine what he's talking about. Its a fun track, It doesn't take itself too seriously. A real head bopper with a mid bass that draws you in. It can be a bridging track between a warm up and a peak set but also works well when I've played it late.

BB player Dan Beaumont shares some classic batty bass weaponry

e-N - The Horn Ride (Danny's Ballroom mix)
This is the unmistakable sound of Tenaglia at the top of his game.... This record is real and raw! An epic 10 minutes of house music; a masterclass in big room drama. Play loud on vinyl for the full bottom heavy ballroom effect... Beware: It's an analogue earthquake.

Ralph Falcon - That Sound
A stone-cold classic from MURK's Ralph Falcon. A subterranean slice of late night house that somehow manages to sound like proto-jungle. It's rough, ready and still sounds enormous in a big room. Both dubs on the original 12" do the business as well. Hot & Heavy.
