There's no denying that electronic music is particularly glitch- and dub-heavy these days -- and, in an announcement that will no doubt thrill fans of that sound, SubSynthesis and GlitchDrop have released a new compilation album, Bass From Above - Vol. 1.
On the compilation, you'll find exclusive original tracks by an array of artists; the goal here is to help create "a continuous series of releases designed to garner exposure for many of the industry's greatest up-and-coming artist," notes Ethan Baer of SubSynthesis. "By releasing volumes of exclusive original tracks, all of the participating artists become members of an ongoing cross-promotional entity designed to increase exposure far beyond the fan bass of any individual artist."
