Dutch Bass
“Bass music” is an umbrella term for various different genres like Trap, Tropical, Global, Dubstep, Drum ’n Bass, Garage and certain styles of House where the bass plays a dominant role in the music. In England the genre ‘UK Bass’ emerged and nowadays is known across the whole world. Dutch Trance-, Hardstyle-, House- and Techno- producers are also getting a lot of international acclaim, however The Netherlands has a lot more to offer. This is one of the reasons that Amsterdam based record label Basserk decided to push “Dutch Bass” in early 2013.

Dutch Bass is a collective noun (genre) and a mark for high quality produced bass music from The Netherlands. Dutch Bass is known for its dark and exciting atmosphere with extreme depth and it’s raw vibe, naturally the bass plays a very important role.

Basserk is not claiming to be the exclusive owner of the new Dutch Bass term, but more as the founders and collaborators. The idea being that more artists and labels will adopt the term and start using it for their releases and events. This way Dutch Bass can really come to life and in time become a globally accepted genre.

On the 29th of January in 2013, Frenquency’s EP titled “Me On Power” gave the start signal for Basserk’s Dutch Bass releases. During the same year releases for Subp Yao, Deon Custom, Fellow, Guessbeats & Kidmalone and Boemklatsch have followed. For the last 3 months of 2013 basserk have a couple of extra releases planned, including releases from Frenquency, Fellow, Maloki, Levingtquatre and BoeBoe.

In the last couple of months Basserk has also realized the first two Dutch Bass events. In March 2013 the first event took place in the EKKO (Utrecht). The night featured performances from BoeBoe, Frenquency, Bronstibock, Blaxton x Jarreau and special guest Krampfhaft (Rwina Records, Saturate!). In May the second event took place, this time in the Sugar Factory (Amsterdam). This event featured Guerilla Speakers and Boemklatsch who released their first Dutch Bass EP that night.

During Amsterdam Dance Event 2013 there will be a Dutch Bass event held in OT301 (Overtoom 301, Amsterdam). To coincide this event there are new releases from BoeBoe and Fellow. The headliner of the evening is Schlachthofbronx (Mad Decent, Mixpack). The German duo who have been support act for M.I.A. will bring an eclectic mix of Ghettotek, Juke, Bass, Dancehall en Reggae.

To get a better understanding of what Dutch Bass is exactly, we invite you take a look at one of these websites and take a listen to some Dutch Bass.
