3 years since their inception, Articulate are now a fully fledged label.
After starting out in 2014, Articulate Sound gradually built their name on being a platform for up and coming UKG and Bass artists to put out free music alongside running a guestmix series, with mixes from some of the scene’s quickest growing names; Arridim, Frazah, Cellardore, SaidWho and Clean Shirt are just some of the artists to contribute to Articulate’s ever growing library of original, fresh sounding Bass music.
On the 10th July 2017, however, Articulate made the big jump from free download platform to fully functioning label and marked the occasion with a 5 track EP from Daze Prism. Featuring 2 originals and 3 remixes, Daze Prism continues his hot streak after releasing on Punks Music, BRØKEN and Project Allout.
The originals on the release, ‘Tektonix’ & ‘Temptations’ are both incredibly dark tunes, with huge basslines riding clean, crisp breaks. ‘Tektonix’ features MC vocals straight from the rave, whereas ‘Temptations’ opts for a smooth, sultry female voice instead, contrasting against the raspy bassline. Both tracks are produced brilliantly, with a good ear for detail and are further examples of Daze Prism’s ability.
Affiliate, Doctor Nick and Sammy Virji have been called in on remix duties, with Affiliate turning ‘Tektonix’ in to a weighty, UK Funky destroyer – chunky drums and grimey basslines carry the remix with just enough space left for pitched vocals and panpipes.
Doctor Nick also took on ‘Tektonix’, switching up on his usual summer fuelled UKG efforts and opting for heavy breaks and exquisite percussive rolls, anchored by long, brooding bass notes.
‘Temptations’ got the Sammy Virji treatment, starting with uplifting strings and the lead vocal before dropping into shuffling 2 step drums and a crunchy bassline – the second section has more of a Bassline influence akin to his signature style.
