DJ Kicks By Photek - [Download]
This DJ Kicks album by Photek is easily one of the best mixes I have heard in 2012. Thanks to Electronic Battle Weapons, I was able to listen to this album the first thing this morning. Give it a shot and you’ll know what I am talking about, if you’re into heavy, clean, bass music with hints of tech house and dnb. I don’t want to spoil the magic of this album, so give it a listen yourself and see how awesome this DJ Kicks album really is. Peep the tags if you want more descriptions. Please listen to this with good headphones or great speakers with heavy bass for true appreciation of this wonder.

modeselektor + apparat = moderat == bass heaven
Moderat - A New Error [download]
Moderat is Modeselektor and Apparat’s collaborative project, which is a dark mixture of glitch, minimal, and techno. The beginning track on the self-titled album, A New Error is absolutely beautiful and demonstrates their stellar use of glitches and breaks. This music is best listened to with nice headphones or a stereo with superb bass, as the entire album is very bass heavy as it is synth-rich.
Some other notable tracks on this excellent album are Rusty Nails, No. 22, and Porc #1.
Download Moderat’s eponymous album here! (You really want to get this one, it’s a nice 320 rip :) and the bass sounds fabulous.)

Jamie XX and Gil Scott-Heron - I’m New Here [download]
… had to share one more track off the album which showcases Jamie XX’s deep and tremendous bass. Heady. Wait for the drop. You won’t regret it.
