Band of the Day


Bass Science

Futuristic glitch hop that illuminates brainwaves and ignites dance floors
Nothing can stop me, nothing will ever hold me back.
lyrics from Eating Elephants (feat. High Top Kicks)

The eve of the apocalypse brings a new era for Bass Science. An electronic production unit whose beats bounce on the cusp of the future, Bass Science creates diverse productions that are lit with innovation and laden with the low end for a fresh and far-reaching musical experience.

Bass Science is Mattb, a prolific producer whose eclectic sound has been cultivated from a wide range of influences, from his homes in London and Japan to Los Angeles, and many places between. Also the brains behind the record label Made In Glitch, Mattb is a beat pioneer who has made powerful contributions to Japan’s glitch hop scene as well as the global bass music movement. The newest sounds from Bass Science encompass this divergent world, fusing glitch hop, IDM and dub into a heady electronic blend that illuminates brainwaves and fires the dance floor into action.
