Coming off a series of raw garage and bass house releases on labels like Night Bass Records and Dim Mak, Bassboy has now extended his fiery aural aesthetic to “Thru Your Mind.” The producer cuts and chops vocals from featured artist, Sâlo, and as the track runs, different elements of the beat and melody are slowly phased out, making room for new sounds without upsetting the balance. The sheer attention to detail on this track will have “Thru Your Mind” running through listeners’ own for quite some time, in typical Bassboy fashion.

Make no mistake—dance music is born from black culture. Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much. Dancing Astronaut pledges to make every effort to be a better ally, a stronger resource, and a more accountable member of the global dance music community. Black Lives Matter—get involved here:
