Various Artists - Surreal Estate EP / 12"
Surreal Estate EP
Heralding the next wave of underground bass music to fans across the USA and beyond, San Francisco's Frite Nite label - captained by psychedelic bass traveller Salva - has teamed up with rising star beat connoisseur Ana Sia to deliver sounds of the new North American underground on the 'Surreal Estate' compilation. Advancing past the more overcooked styles in US electronic music, Ana Sia has championed big stages and basement clubs with a melting pot of new sounds unique to her and the league of artists featured on this new full-length session. 'Surreal Estate' is a 17 track collection of tribal-influenced spacey dance grooves, progressive footwork, modern electro funk, and UK-centric dubstep rhythms, composed by an anticipated cast of North American producers, carefully selected and mixed by Ana Sia. Exploring the atmospheric and ethereal, yet bass-heavy, funky and playfully musical, the mix shows Ana Sia's passion for music that works as well for the dance floor as it does the intimate listen. This exclusive collection contains bleeding-edge tracks from some of the finest production minds from both American coasts such as Sepalcure, Starkey, XI, Distal, Ghosts On Tape and DJG, as well as Ana Sia's crew taking over the western front with artists like Salva, Eprom, Kuru & UFO!, B.Bravo, NastyNasty and Epcot. 'Surreal Estate' is Frite Nite's first venture into the realm of physical product, and speaks loud to both brand new bass music enthusiasts as well as seasoned ears eagerly anticipating a paradigm shift in underground dance and beat culture
