Last week this tasty treat got a spin on 1Xtra from Monki. It’s a new tune from Bristolian bass heads GotSome. Whether it’s a forthcoming new single or not is not known at this time, it’s possibly a track they’ve put together for their sets, who knows? What we do know though is that it would be a sure fire summer festival monster if released. It’s fittingly called ‘Don’t Stop’, check it out below.
As you would expect, this tune is a non stop bass juggernaut. Mixing up their heavy bass sound with a sprinkling of Chicago House, GotSome deliver a stomping and mesmerising peak time tune. With a pulsating tuned kick complimenting the bassline, the track conjures up a percussive hook that kinda’ works it’s way into your brain. Add to that some House stabs and brooding vocal samples and you have a heady and intoxicating mix.

Exploitation, the first single from Hairless Toys, the about–to-be released new album from Avant-DiscoPop queen Róisín Murphy has been given the bass heavy floorfiller treatment from Bristol’s finest GotSome. The reMix rubs impressive shoulders with work from the likes of DJ Sneak and Falco Benz on the single and more than makes it’s mark by drawing you into it’s hypnotic groove. Check it out below.
Pulsating robo-bass and a jump up beat drive this juggernaut of a track. Murphy’s vocals are the prefect counter for this throbbing and woozy House tune; her soft tones curling across the high-octane machine groove like smoke. GotSome serve up a symphony of tough rhythms, cowbell and loose keys; punctuated by those demonic synth growls. Strobe light stuff, GotSome are on a roll.

Bristol Bass merchants GotSome are about to hammer home their new single, the follow up to last year’s clubland destroying Bassline. This new tune sees the duo teaming up with notorious festival hater and humourless narcissist Wiley to produce an absolutely massive slice a speaker shaking that is likely to see them have their first (and much deserved) cross-over hit. This is Vibe Out.
This one is heavy, so make sure you system is turned right up. Robotic beats and razor sharp bass dominate the tune that mixes a little Dancehall and a little Grime into a terminator style Bass House juggernaut. GotSome live up to their manifesto, this one is all about the bassline The duo tease you for over a minute before unleashing, layered with buzzing synths and rumbling subs, the big bass that powers the festival dancefloor powerhouse that is Vibe Out.

Awesome Bristol Bass duo GotSome’s latest recipient of their booming sound is London singer/songwriter Moko. The voice Of Chase & Status’ Count On Me, Moko is gearing up for the release of her new single Your Love next month and the boys, still riding high on the monster success of their single Bassline, have taken it to low down dirty places.
Unsurprisingly, this one’s all about the bassline; a woozy, speaker destroying, pummel of bass that rides on a shuffling, Garage-y House beat, dominating all it encounters. Supported by stabbing leads, GotSome skilfully deliver this hammerfall bass without ever letting it overwhelm Moko’s smooth vocal, Powerful stuff; I’d expect to be hearing a lot of over the coming months if I were you.

Bristol House duo GotSome have been racking up some serious radio play in recent months. Their forthcoming début single, Bassline, has not only been championed by both Annie Mac and B.Traits and MistaJam but has also been picked up by Defected for a release later this month. One half of GotSome happens to be Alex from Substatic, so, y’know, at least he’s got an excuse for the lack of Substatic tunes recently.
As moody and atmospheric as it is infectiously danceable, Bassline mixes up a little Chicago, a little Acid and a little Balearic all rolled up in a decidedly UK package. Get Along Gang provide some ear worm vocals that flow with the pumping bassline and retro future keys. There’s a good chance you may have already heard this tune over the summer, and with release date looming it looks set for big things.
♫ GotSome (Feat. Get Along Gang) – Bassline
GotSome’s début EP featruing Bassline, Don’t Want You Back and On Point is released 14th October on Defected.
