Various Artists Basswerk Sessions: Vol. 2
- Words: Chris Muniz
- Label: Basswerk
Germany's Basswerk crew returns with a massive double-pack of world-class beats. Fiercely independent and determined to maintain the original outlaw spirit of drum & bass, the imprint is known for encouraging their artists to experiment with different flavors. That said, don't expect the results to be too far out-the influences here are subtle, and the impressive tracks stay within the range from liquid funk to dark and hard bangers. Highlights come from artists like the Green Man, Misanthrop, Konrad & Coda, Diz:Play, Cytech and the always surprising Giana Brotherz. A collection definitely worth checking out, especially for those interested in the future of drum & bass.
