Baobinga "Make Me Feel"
Joint Ventures is a 16-track LP that features headlining artist Baobinga collaborating with a slew of bass music's finest producers, including Untold, xxxy, Roska, Hyetal, and others (read all the info here). That record is available now via the Bristol-based Build imprint, who were kind enough to offer us this download of "Make Me Feel" to mark the occasion. Oddly enough, this low-swinging tune is the sole production on Joint Ventures that Baobinga crafted without another artist, but it certainly goes to show why he's a man that high-profile tunesmiths would be eager to work with. The track somehow brings to mind some of Timbaland's finest moments; the slow-grooving rhythms have a definite hip-hop/R&B swagger to them, and the stuttering swell of arpeggiating synths uncannily evokes the super-producer's Justin Timberlake single "My Love." It's that kind of attention to melody and harmony, not to mention the balance between emotive and club-friendly sounds, that puts Baobinga on another tier in the world of bass music. If you're looking for a taste of something a bit harder from the musicmaker, you can download his collaboration with Randomer, "Crom2," after the jump.
