Bassbin rocking dubstep progressions from Yorkshire bass fiend Deville for Senseless recs. 'Rumble' rules the A-side with an overwhelming display of bass prowess holding up a mean ragga cut dubstep riddim, but it's 'Stamina' on the other side that gets three thumbs up for the party starting soca riddim and pure bass pressure styles that align very nicely with the grimier Funky House rhythms of Skepta or Benga and Coki's huge 'Night'. Guaranteed bass pleasures.
This is DeVille’s first release on the label but as well as running The Fix Up in Leeds and hosting a show on SUBFM he’s a fixture at all Senseless raves and has just completed a seven date tour of the USA showcasing the label’s sound mixed up with his own diverse set of influences. Rumble proved to be a big hit stateside and has featured on a XLR8R podcast with regular plays from DJs like Starkey who push the street bass sound that is dubstep’s close neighbour. It hot-wires a jump up soca style beat to old school rave melodies and box busting bass to create a genre defying mix-up that dubstep DJs across the world are switching up their sets with.

, Reload and more. Stamina continues the bassrave theme with a jungle sample for heads to reminisce over while the rest of the crowd are bouncing up and down like they got glow stick juice in their eye. Raucous 4x4 beats and a driving arpeggiated synth propel a wall of junglist sub bass forward with dub echoes and techno percussion joining the dots. This one’s been tearing down warehouses from Athens to Caracas. Bass rave for president 2008.
