Editors’ Notes Bass is more than just a range of frequencies: It's practically an entire philosophy of club music. Drawing from the whip-cracking syncopations of ‘80s electro, the rough-cut breaks of UK hardcore, and the low-end pressure of dub reggae, contemporary bass music first manifested itself in ‘90s drum ‘n' bass and ‘00s grime and dubstep, but by the end of the ‘00s bass music had come to encompass a vast universe of ideas. Blazing through it you'll find Flying Lotus' brain-scrambling beat music, Hudson Mohawke's lightning-fingered trance stabs, Burial's lo-fi melancholy, and Skrillex's serrated synths and convulsive throb.
