press play #46 - Basso

Basso is one of the clever and talented folk behind blog of the decade 'The Growing Bin', a specialist space on the www, dedicated to rare, obscure, unheard, super interesting & quality records from the past. I'm sure i'm not the only one who's gone and hunted down, bought and shipped home an LP or three as a result of records they put up on their site. You may also know the man from his amazing 'Joy Of Cooking' mixes for Deepfrequency.com which go out monthly; Basso mixes up beautiful new and old tracks, he has an impeccable ear for truly special sounds and each episode is a real keeper. Last year in October, label of distinction Blackdisco released 'Basso's EP', a four track vinyl debut of Disco edits by this Hamburg resident. You'll also find more of his quality cut ups on Soundcloud, where he covers a range of diggers sounds. I read somewhere, it could have been facebook or Soundcloud or even The Growing Bin, that Basso 'likes edits that don't sound like edits' and it's a description that fits his own work perfectly.

I am once again delighted, more than you can possibly know, to be able to bring you a very special mix from another of my favourite dj's. 'Another Summer On Earth' is the very essence of the season; it's the perfect soundtrack for drifting on your favourite lilo, for cooking in the open with friends, for strolling in the park with your most loved one, for driving in the countryside with the sunroof down. It's programmed with Basso's usual finesse and is as such another classic mix from this consummate musicologist... I'll see if I can get a play list, but in the meantime get on this at once...

it's eeven worse. Vita Nova is a private press from Frankonia, Germany. 500 copies made and most of them crushed when the studio moved some years ago. I know because I called them when digging for more copies. I came 2 months late.....
