Deep in the misty forests of Arcata and beyond, a new collection of artists has formed to keep your sonic senses tingling. Meet the Humboldt Bass Crew, a diverse group of music producers hailing from California’s northern tip. The crew recently released their first compilation album, Bass Crusade, and it has definitely had us bobbing our heads and tapping our feet. Established up & comers like Wu Wei and Psy Fi make appearances on the release, as well as fresh faces on the scene like Nafyah, Seatones, and @udioga$m. These are true NorCal denizens and you can feel it in their music; one can almost hear the waves crashing and smell the weed burning as these tunes wash over you.
With a variety of sounds and styles throughout the album, Bass Crusade: Volume One is a psychedelic beat buffet just waiting for you to dig in. Give it a listen after the jump and make sure to cop the Pay-What-You-Can download on the Humboldt Bass Crew‘s Bandcamp page.
