Looks like the fall season is going to be a busy one for the Nightshifters label, beginning with the release of the free Roll EP from UK bass fiend Hostage. The title track—check the video—is a speaker-rattling monster that rises and falls like a rollercoaster, but we prefer this remix from LA’s Samo Sound Boy, who dials back the wobble bass, steps up the snares, and tosses in a few snippets of dancehall vocals. It’s still a serious club tune, albeit one that won’t dangerously rumble your internal organs. (We realize that may or may not be a good thing, depending on who is reading this.) More Nightshifters offerings are on the way, as the imprint recently added a fresh-faced new crop of artists to its roster. Look for new music from Canblaster, Distal, Magnum, and Talk to drop soon.
