NastyNasty "No Names"

San Francisco's NastyNasty is one of the Bay's up-and-coming masters of bass, and on "No Names," he kicks it down with dark bass rumblings, synth blips, and some truly impressive polyrhythmic intensity. Though the genre can often get a bit tired, this track is particularly noteworthy because of a prominent Marvin Gaye vocal sample, which turns a well-done but standard bass track into a much more sentimental affair, with a resonance approaching that of Burial. Next month sees a new single on Frite Nite, featuring remixes from wonky leftfield bass producer Slugabed, among others.
