Anyone who has ever watched the birth of a genre before knows that it almost always grows from the youth; the fresh perspective. Well, I'd like to present a candidate for that new sound in the form of new-comer Harvard Bass. Clocking in at a measley 21 years of age, this San Diegoan seems to have stumbled, with his first original track, on a hell of jackin' banger. If you have been through LA recently, you might recognize him as Sleazy V often seen amongst folk such as Paparazzi, Acid Girls, Johnny Love and so on. It's interesting to me that someone that has come up in the blog house scene then comes back with straight up jackin' house. I wonder if its a trend. I wonder if the pattern will persist and other young post bloghouse producers will follow suit. Regardless, this tune kills on the floor and I can't wait to see what else ol' Harvard Bass has got up his sleeve.
Destructo (Gary Richards) began DJing and producing undergrounds in the early 90s in Los Angeles, most notably creating RaveAmerica at Knotts Berry Farm. Rick Rubin subsequently handpicked Gary for A&R in electronic music at Def American Recordings, launching a noteworthy career with such acts as Lords of Acid, Messiah, David Holmes, Basement Jaxx, Dub Pistols, God Lives Underwater and founding 1500 Records and Nitrus Records. After carrying his success to the metal world with No Name Mgmt, Destructo returned to his roots in 2007 by creating HARD. HARD events such as the HARD Haunted Mansion have become synonymous with cutting edge electronic music and unforgettable experiences, where the talent rosters reflect Destructo's own impeccable DJ sets.
