Based in Los Angeles, EMU is a bass music veteran who has been making beats for years. One of SoCal’s best-known dubstep heads, EMU caught attention with his remix of Horace Andy’s “Skylarking.” He went on to make major waves with a fresh “Throw Some D’s” remix, and his track with 12th Planet called “Control” on Basshead Records was a hit, and introduced him to an international audience. A long time friend of BRAP DEM! RECORDINGS, EMU approached us with the FREAK! EP. FREAK! is a writhing, tropical-tinged, dance floor banger, with pounding bass lines, and syncopated beats that induce dancing, and shape throwing. The remixes come from boss producers, UFO! & KURU, DON FROTH, and known EMU collaborator, PAWN. This EP is ready to make bass bins knock in any flavor you like.

GET TO KNOW THE NEW ..... BENITO - I'M BUSY EP .....out Feb 21st 2012!!
It was a gloomy start of summer in San Francisco in 2011 when label boss Sam Supa attended a BBQ with a banging sound system in a remote industrial part of town where trolley cars go to die. There he heard lots of great music but it was a tall, skinny kid, with a beanie pushing buttons and making fantastic sounds happen that caught his ears. BENITO hails from SF and makes what we like to call futuristic, beat-driven, space juke or footwork for Martians if you please. Ethereal in nature with minimal drums and imaginative patterns that are other worldly but carried by solid bass. BDR is proud to present 5 tracks by BENITO we feel push things forward. In this banger addicted market we present an EP that you will listen to for years to come. This is the stuff future dreams are made of.......

FROM XL8R MAG:
"Today brings the debut EP from an up-and-coming producer based in Cleveland, Ohio by the name of Jason Burns. The three-track See Thru You isn't exactly as sunny as the above artwork would lead you to believe, but actually follows suit with the dark and deeply soulful "Back 2 You" cut we shared a while back. The same goes for this solid rework of Burns' title track by busy Atlanta tunesmith Distal—who, incidentally, has his own EP on the way via Grizzly, as well as a new, two-track 12" coming fromTectonic. Needless to say, we're happy to hear these two promising artists join forces on this hard-hitting and touching production."
POLITRICKS IN PARADISE speaks on the evils and consequences of greed among the ruling elite. Backed by a simple, dub & bass riddim, ZULU chants about Babylon’s shortcomings and its effect on the people.
BUBBLEBUTT is a sexy, smooth, banger, bumping and grinding like a snake, with a tinge of both sexy lady vocals and MC Zulu.
TEETHGRINDER a hard groove that builds with sinister synth stabs, escalating to a teeth-grinding drop that makes your feet stomp.
OUT EVERYWHERE AUGUST 23RD and watch out for a FREE REMIX by Vegas badman KING, closer to the street date!!
JASON BURNS has been hidden away in his Cleveland Ohio studio making his unique personal brand of deep, dub based, soul music. A DJ and producer who was there, at the start of the inclusion of Dubstep in the US dance scene, his productions are influenced but move beyond Dubstep into R&B, 2Step, Soul, Garage, and House riddims. The early demos sent to the label blew us away. The raw soul, and minimal vocals, the sexiness, and warmth of his tunes are next level.
Over a year in the making BRAP DEM! RECORDINGS is very proud to present the SEE THRU YOU EP as its 10th release. This EP is about love, and music.
DIE 4 U a syrupy sexy bit of 2Step with pads and synth-lines that beg the listener to fall in love on the dance floor.
I CANT CHANGE is a dub tinged ballad, a note to love, expressing itself in traditional dub riddims with future forward construction that stays with you.
SEE THRU YOU swings and sways with a playful accusing vocal sample that will incite bump and grind way more than the deep head nod.
Support from: NOAHD, SALVA, ANA SIA, B.BRAVO, SPECTERS, KID SMPL, SUBLO
OUT EVERYWHERE AUGUST 16TH and watch out for a FREE REMIX closer to the street date!!

Spanning the spectrum of bass music, from Dubstep to Garage to Drumstep to Glitch to experimental bass riddims, there is something for everyone. All money will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. Volume 01 contains an amazing set of tunes all donated and some created just for this compilation. This is a snapshot of the freshest and most progressive producers up from the underground to the ears of listeners.
