Wednesday is humpday, which not only marks the halfway point between the work week and the coveted weekend, but also Conscious Electronic’s Midweek Mantra Mix (M3). We’ve been scouring the web’s most enlightening bass music mixes that align with our vision, to provide “a conscious way to consume dance music.” M3 spotlights both veteran and up-and-coming bass music artists whose music seeks to raise the vibrations of their collective listener base.
Underground DJ and producer G-Space is quickly becoming one of the more hardworking bass artists around, as his rapidly growing discography demonstrates. He’s been on fire since 2015: unleashing a steady stream of releases, brimming with personality, and with a focus on promoting activism. With music that’s branded as “for world peace” and a prominent link on his website dedicated to encouraging support for causes including BLM and Yemen aid, it’s hard to deny the radiant positive vibe that permeates his music.
His recent performances at festivals including Okeechobee and Wakaan helped secure his spot as a rising bass sensation. The young musician is an avid piano player, and is known for doing backflips on stage while playing the keytar. His tricks and flips add a unique and unusual element to a live G-Space set that is hard to find at most electronic shows.
In 2019, a 40oz Collective threw an event dubbed Wonderland that culminated a range of bass talent. As a special treat beforehand, G-Space recorded a packed ninety minute set filled with originals, collaborations, and remixes that premiered on the 40oz Radio. This set showcases the best aspects of G-Space– from crunchy hip-hop, dirty wubs, and sneaky transitions to his desire to let his friends and collaborators shine just as brightly as he does.
The mix doesn’t hesitate to dive into different genres, crossing through trap, space bass, and glitch while also adding touches of Eastern inspired world fusion and various vocal samples. G-Space throws out both released tracks and ID’s of his own, and spins collabs he has with artists like Supertask, Wreckno, and Mr. Bill as well as tunes from tsuruda, Ternion Sound, Distinct Motive, and Reso to name a few.
A truly an all-encompassing and immersive journey, the hour-and-thirty-minute mix is at it’s best with speakers that can handle heavy sounds and the attention for the variety of names and personal sounds. G-Space stays true to his namesake, leaving the earth entirely to take listeners into the cosmos through music, which is what makes him a precise fit for CE‘s Midweek Mantra Mix. The scene is making way for a new generation of bass stars and G-Space is perfectly poised to come out on top.
