Favorite ThisIn Case You Missed It: FreQ Nasty, Bass Church, and GruntWorthy

Published: December 9, 2011
Sometimes, we at let things fall through the cracks, even though they deserve some proper loving. So with the holidays creeping ever closer, we thought we'd ask for forgiveness, and give respect and recognition to our fine friends in the world of bass, in the spirit of the season.
First off, we messed up pretty bad by missing a release from the one and only FreQ Nasty. Darin McFadyen is one of the most important figures in all of bass music for more than a decade. From New Zealand and Australia to the UK and now the Bay Area, FreQ Nasty has been a fixture in the drum 'n' bass world, dubstep, and certainly one of the top producers of drumstep. Not only that, the guy has a heart. No Scrooge here. When he's not producing and playing out, he's supporting charities and benefits far and wide in devotion to his deep Buddhist spirituality. So please enjoy "1000 Buddhas of The Pureland of Bass," a free new download from his latest release, Low FreQuency Pureland. The EP is out now, and you can grab all sorts of goodies, like a USB drive that's got the EP, his last single, "Dread at the Controls," and some rare collaborations with Bassnectar and Propa Tingz at

We flat out blew it with our buddies down in NC. Bass Church, a nasty bunch of bassketeers hellbent on raising a ruckus in the Appalachain and Piedmont regions have been putting out some amazing tunes of late, and are really pushing the envelope when it comes to remixes and funky new originals. Check out the latest offering from our pal, Fast Nasty, and relative newcomer to the crew, Stereotonin. Black Market Bass Vol. 2 is out now for consumption, feel free to download it right away. We hope all is forgiven and forgotten!

Alpha Data - Nefertiti (Preview)

Finally, we would like to welcome our new friends at GruntWorthy into the fold here at The Untz. This new bass-heavy label is led by Carly D, and features some of most exciting new producers to emerge in recent memory. We've already featured Dirt Monkey in our new Fresh Beatz section, but his collaboration with Shank Aaron, Pillow Fight, is producing some pretty filthy dubstep. Also, the brand new Alpha Data, who appeared in one of our early contests, is making a name for himself with some pretty out there glitch hop. You can grab both of their new releases now from Beatport.

We feel so much better, now. Let's grab the fattest goose from the corner market and boil it up!
