And when we say out of this world, we truly mean it. The collection of tunes that makes up the Meanwhile album were all hand-selected by none other than the reverend of wonk himself: Space Jesus.
Unsurprisingly, the whole release is quality of the highest standard. Dark, heavy, and experimental, Meanwhile is the epitome of what the Wakaan label hopes to curate and spread to the masses. The album features 17 all-original tracks from some of bass music’s finest, representing both the United States and lands beyond our borders. Artists the likes of Bleep Bloop, Shlump, Conrank, Yheti, Mr. Bill, Proko and many more all lent their talents the album, locking it in as one of the imprint’s best offerings yet; even the elusive boss-man, Liquid Stranger, makes an appearance. It’s a straight up smorgasbord of next-level sound design, an eclectic fusion of just about every low-end fueled sub-genre you care to name. Trap, dubstep, grime, drum & bass; it’s all here, often overlapping in the most glorious of ways. And given that fact, we highly recommend turning up your sub for maximum enjoyment.
Best of all, Wakaan and Space Jesus have made the entire Meanwhile compilation available for the low, low price of free. You can stream it in full after the jump as well, so be sure to grab a copy of your own via Hive if you’re feeling the vibes!
