Monster Sounds has released Drumstep & Mutant Bass V1, a sample library by Kanji Kinetic.
Kanji Kinetic is a guy who has managed to sculpt his own take on the 140bpm mash up game. His first foray into the world of bass and beats came back in 2008 when his debut release was put out by Rag & Bone Records. This saw him grab the attention of Drop The Lime Starkey, Taz Buckfaster, Tayo, Mary Anne Hobbs, B Rich, Chrissy Murderbot, Akira Kiteshi, Reso and DZ with its fresh, energetic mix of bassline, techno, dubstep and chiptune influences.
Continuing to evolve his sound with a wide range of releases and remixes, Kanji’s brutal remix of 16Bit’s dubstep anti-anthem ‘Chainsaw Calligraphy’ brought a new wave of fans into the mutant bass sound along with further remixes for Figure, Roisin Murphy, Mustard Pimp & Alec Empire, Kid606, Rico Tubbs, Si Begg, Drop The Lime, Acid Jacks, Jeuce, Egyptrixx, Mikix The Cat, Temper D and Blackmass Plastics!!! Not a bad portfolio for such a young guy with such a focused vision.
Kanji Kinetic began experimenting with different tempos and genres, most notably drumstep with 2010’s ‘New Era’ EP, while remaining in high demand for live shows all over the globe. In January 2011 he started Mutant Bass Records to bring attention to both established and upcoming artists making this fresh hybrid dance music.
