“The ten-track album is hinged around cavernous bas tones that twist their way around vicious metallic drum patterns while guest MCs like Danny Brown, Dizzee Rascal, Freddie Gibbs, and Chuck D contribute aggressive vocals.”
“Prepare for your head to explode.”
– LA Weekly
“For a man that needs no introduction, he continues to re-introduce himself back into the music scene with increased relevancy and humility. More of a living legend than just a producer, Lawrence Muggerud, better known by his stage name DJ Muggs, has conquered just about every genre he has set foot on”
– The Music Ninja
You know DJ Muggs the hip-hop producer (platinum albums with Cypress Hill, House of Pain’s smash “Jump Around”—plus a dozen stellar albums of collaborations in the Vs. series, as Soul Assassins and otherwise), the globetrotting hip-hop club DJ (spinning 100+ dates annually) and the experimental recording artist (2003 genre-defying album Dust). Take a breath and get ready for a new chapter in the Muggs story—and forget everything you thought you knew.
With Bass For Your Face (Ultra Music), the Los Angeles producer turns his considerable hard-won skills and discerning ear to dubstep, glitch, dub electronics in 10 original tracks (2 bonus tracks) featuring rising stars of hip-hop, a grime legend, a hip-hop god—but also an unknown Finnish singer discovered on SoundCloud. It’s not a typical hip-hop album, or a dubstep collection for that matter. It’s a 21st century hip-hop album built on futuristic dubstep production technique featuring rappers and vocalists operating on the leading edge of the underground. It’s safe to say it could only exist in 2013.
It’s far from a safe record, but Muggs wouldn’t have it any other way.
