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."
The comp is posted for free on Bandcamp, as well as a few other outlets, and Baer promises any donations will be used to promote future releases; no profits will be earned by SubSynthesis or Glitch Drop. The artists appearing on Bass From Above, in no particular order:
