Unfortunately, due to the disheartening fact that 123Mrk has left us without any new releases in quite some time now, we have not been able to properly introduce you to our favorite producer of the increasingly popular genre, Future Garage (Future Bass). Most notably in America, this genre of electronic music is gaining a lot of speed as its counterpoint style, Dubstep, is slowly becoming a thing of the past.
It’s kind of funny actually, it only took America an additional two or three years to catch up with the electronic dance music trends that had already taken deep root in the rest of the world (Europe/Australia). We are predicting that Future Garage, or Future Bass, whatever you want to call it, is going to be HUGE in the old US of A. This particular musical motif, that outrightly stands against and rejects the increasingly watered down dubstep scene, combines several musical aspects that we Americans seem to already dig.
Future music is a bit hard to describe really, but we will do our best. We believe that Americans will immediately fall in love with this type of music because they absolutely LOVE Hip-Hop, Rap and R&B. Utilizing the chilled-out and soulful downtempo aura of these musical predecessors, Future producers apply a particular touch to make a track their own.
This may include “re-pitched vocals” (probably the first thing you will notice), “soft leads with a round attack, subbass or square wave bass with a modulating filter” (source: Wiki) and classic, finely tuned snare drum/high hat arrangements. In fact, many remixes of the Future Garage flavor typically choose an original Hip-Hop or R&B track to restyle.
This next artist classifies his production style as “Future Garage Post Dubstep Hip Hop Electro,” so yeah. It’s a bit complicated to say the least.
However, without any further ado, we bring to you his Highness, the Future Bass legend, 123Mrk with his latest EP release, “Versatile/Secret Secret.”
While your at it…
