Fresh off the Ste Louse post from last Saturday, here's another great taste of a genre from Australia so new there's not an established name for it. I hear a combo of trap and disco, but Sydney producer Basenji has his own description: Norsound.
"Norsound is really the “Australian Sound” of Norway," he told Sydney-based music blog The Wall. "It is essentially a word to group together a bunch of artists rather than pinning down a specific style or flavour."
"Sable and I talked about pioneering the genre 'Kawaii-Bass,'" says Basenji, who is also one half of Disco Filter favorites Pablo J and the Lobsterettes.
The dance music out of Sydney/Perth/etc recently caught the ear of Diplo, who featured a mix from Wave Racer on his BBC Radio show Diplo and Friends. Listen to that for a broader introduction.
But this new remix from Basenji has candy diamond arpeggios dripping from the ceiling and heavy bass synth enveloping you from below. Free download!
