KANJI KINETIC Drumstep & Mutant Bass Vol 2
“Whether you’re just getting into production or need something to bolster your arsenal, these are some well built sounds” Future Music 8/10
Kanji is back with the second installment to his huge Drumstep and Mutant Bass release on Monster Sounds late last year!
Kanji Kinetic is a guy who has managed to sculpt his own take on the 140bpm mash up game. His first foray into the world of bass and beats came back in 2008 when his debut release was put out by Rag & Bone Records.
This saw him grab the attention of Drop The Lime Starkey, Taz Buckfaster, Tayo, Mary Anne Hobbs, B Rich, Chrissy Murderbot, Akira Kiteshi, Reso and DZ with its fresh, energetic mix of bassline, techno, dubstep and chiptune influences.
Continuing to evolve his sound with a wide range of releases and remixes, Kanji’s brutal remix of 16Bit’s dubstep anti-anthem ‘Chainsaw Calligraphy’ brought a new wave of fans into the mutant bass sound along with further remixes for Figure, Roisin Murphy, Mustard Pimp & Alec Empire, Kid606, Rico Tubbs, Si Begg, Drop The Lime, Acid Jacks, Jeuce, Egyptrixx, Mikix The Cat, Temper D and Blackmass Plastics!!!
