New Bass Music mix: Kongkast # 231 – feat. SLV (SVBKVLT / Shanghai, China)

Downstate, a Shanghai based producer from the UK, is one half of S L V alongside Tokyo’s Hamacide. As a solo artist, Downstate makes washed out, woozy rap beats, sighting influences from Memphis to London and everywhere in between. As S L V, the pair make abstract leaning footwork rhythms, nicely combining both of their styles to create quite a unique take on the Chicago sound.

A regular at The Shelter and a member of Sub-Culture, Downstate’s DJ sets seamlessly blend both these styles of music to great effect.

‘This mix is basically the sort of set I’ve been playing at The Shelter this last year or two. starting with some wavy memphis-esque rap beats and going into footwork. I also wanted to focus on a lot of the footwork I’m into out of Canada, Japan and Europe, the stuff that’s come out post DJ Rashad / Chicago, more people need to be hearing that shit.’ – Downstate

S L V latest release, The Moss Temple EP, came out on August 4th on Shanghai’s SVBKVLT label, and includes 4 new original tracks as well as a remix by Hyperdub’s Scratcha DVA. His next solo release, entitled ‘Sewers’ will be released via SVBKVLT in October 2014.

Many thanks to SLV for this wicked mix!
