Bevvy Swift’s Monochrome delighted us with a deep, wonky and beautiful interpretation of futuristic bass music so much so that we wanted to see what some other diverse future-bass music producers would do when reinventing the tunes.
The mixes range from Muti head-honcho Dov going deep with a flowing Drum & Bass tune that drops into 808 toms and Junglist beats, Canadian producers HxdB and Philthkids go in completely different directions with HxdB providing a very groovy and slightly broken 4/4 rendition and Philthkids adding heavily experimental Footwork / Juke vibes and fantastically ethereal soundscapes to their remix. Hypha goes deep incorporating flowing 2-step elements with a heavily wonky Dubstep mid section.
Bevvy Swift originally appeared on the north american scene in 2008 as part of a duo known as "Glitchy & Scratchy", Bevvy soon expanded his solo output to include deeper and more left-field sounds. Whether he's making "glitch-hop", "wonky", "aquacrunk", "purple", "future", or (insert other disposable buzzword here), Bevvy draws from the electronic styles of the past to make the hip hop of the future. Look out for the Bevvy Swift album emerging late 2013.
