On this edition of the Sunday Sesh, we are featuring two very different vibes. We have the compilation album Best of Night Bass 2020 from AC Slater’s Night Bass records, and we have an incredible hip-hop EP from Che Noir. As a bonus track, we have a tune from Aminé that we somehow missed completely, but is an absolute banger nonetheless.
Best of Night Bass 2020
AC Slater’s Night Bass Records has been putting out gem after gem this year, and Best of Night Bass 2020 proves that point. We decided to show you two tracks off of the compilation album not only so you can get a feel for the vibe, but because they are two of our favorites. Jack Beats & Qlank’s ‘Higher’ delivers the Bass House sound with the old-school Bassline vibe that Jack Beats fans will appreciate. GRiZ’s ‘Could U’ gives you all that you could want from a GRiZ track, with soulful instrumentation and a banging bassline. 2021 is close you guys, let’s rage.
Che Noir – After 12
We decided to only show you the first track off of Che Noir’s After 12 EP because this one is on her actual Youtube page, but the entire release is stellar. ‘Cruise Control’ has the soulful, boom-bap energy that we love, and Che Noir’s bars are straight poetry. You can check out the whole seven track release and get your copy via Tidal; and we truly hope you do, because the rap game needs more artists like Che Noir.
Aminé ft slowthai + Vince Staples – Pressure In My Palms
What can we really say about this track from Aminé, ‘Pressure In My Palms’ is an absolute banger and we are disappointed in ourselves for only recently discovering it. The beat is absolutely insane, the minimilastic percussion, chopped and pitched vocal sample, and massive legato bassline gives Aminé and featured artists slowthai and Vince Staples plenty of room to flex. But, being entirely real, the beat is the star of this one. The vocal sample switch-up at 1:35 is perfection.
