MAL032: Saucerface 2 (25 BAD ASS TUNES)
From its headquarters nestled in the bustling cityscape of San Francisco, MalLabel Music is poised to unleash an incredible compilation. At a colossal 25 tunes, this whale of an anthology is a perfectly balanced collection of some of the brightest rising luminaries in the business of beats and bass. Artists on the camp are global in origin, ranging from Bay Area heads all the way to South Africa and Russia. Whether you are a seasoned DJ looking for choice new drops to slay the dance or just looking for some boss new beats to get your groove on to, Saucerface 2 is must have.

The musical milieu is impressively robust, the artists and work selected scratch a satisfyingly wide array of musical itches. Off the top, there are some hard hitters on this album worthy of attention such as South African artist Real Mad, who represents his skills with club banger “In the Flow.” Following suit, young badman from the Bay Area Taso adds a sweat inducing, hyper drive bass burner to the mix with “Yogabooty.” The compilation boasts much in the way of progressive, lavish, listenability in tracks such as Bleep Bloop’s deep and sultry “AM,” SF artist Porckchop’s lusciously moody “Purpose,” and Skriptah’s “True Enemy,” worthy of comparison to early Eskmo or Distance. MalLabel resident Skulltrane provides a bit of her token mojo in the mechanical and slithery “Time Machine,” while El Diablo & Mycho kick out a hyphy bouncer with their track “Little Pills.”

Releases of this size can often become less a listening exercise than a simple pocket of different bits of music, but Saucerface 2 is a true music lover’s comp. This compilation is 25 tracks than you can set on repeat and let define the backdrop of your springtime. From start to finish, Saucerface 2 is a testimony to the veracity and staying power of MalLabel music, now living out its third year in full effect with a release schedule that would whet the appetite of any bass junky who could catch a glimpse. Be on the lookout for Saucerface 2 wherever you download music.
