For its fifth anniversary and 50th release, Daniel Haaksman’s Man Recordings label will drop a 12-track compilation, featuring new and exclusive tunes from artists the likes of Schlachthofbronx, Zombie Disco Squad, Crookers, Edu K, and here, UK tunesmith Seiji. His contribution to the celebratory release, “Basslips,” is a slamming assault of bouncing house rhythms, atonal noise candy, and one consistent, diiiiirrrrty bassline. It certainly illustrates how far the Berlin-based Man Recordings has come since its beginnings as a bastion of baile funk and how it has since blossomed into a premiere outlet for the varied sounds of global bass. As Seiji’s club-ready number demonstrates, the Valeu compilation is an eclectic record that any self-respecting party-starter ought to have on hand for appropriate DJ sets. If you’d like to celebrate Man Recordings’ five-year anniversary further, you can listen to and download a retrospective mix that DJ Beware put together on behalf of the label, here.
