ill.Gates is many things: producer, DJ, international man of mystery. But one thing he's always enjoyed is teaching. As part of his new Patreon program, he has been mentoring students from around the word, and now he's releasing some of best creations by curating ill.Gates Presents Class of 808, dropping Friday (January 20) on Muti Music.
With selections on the comp from Arko, Mindset, Zodiak Iller, and many more, the collection demonstrates just how diverse the bass scene has become, and illustrates how wide-ranging ill.Gates' influence is. There's glitch-hop, trap, dubstep, and more on this solid compilation.
Today, we premiere “Puma Party” from Louisville's Sather Bass. Definitely fitting into our underground/experimental niche, this song is a sleeper, creeping in with that thick sub-bass and throwing plenty of 808 into the mix, true to form with the name. We're super impressed not only with this new track, but with this crop of youngsters ill.Gates is mentoring.
