Bassface

“Bassface” is the first solo single from Carpe Diem.

Gaining a reputation across the UK, Carpe Diem’s remixes of some of the country’s best underground artists are being heard across Rinse FM, Nasty FM, House FM, CD Pool, Flex FM, and Radio 1Xtra.

About the release

With “Bassface”, Carpe Diem moves away from the lower BPM genres and resets his solo sound to D&B – but not as you know it. Like his remixes, Carpe Diem’s “Bassface” balances beats and bass in a frenetic chaos of itches and glitches. The track builds up with a dissonant, sinister synth that drops into a scattering clatter of breakcore-tinged beats, which pause for breath with a half-time hip-hop breakdown.

In 2015 Carpe Diem signed exclusively to Beat1, a well-respected promotion service that delivers underground remixes to specialist clubs, Radio DJs, and Producers – resetting the dial for the next big names.

Upcoming Carpe Diem projects include a collaboration with Shahin Badar, the Grammy Award winning vocalist featured on the Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up”.

Andy, CEO of Ice cream Records, has said: “Carpe Diem’s mixes shut the place down – we’ve got heads turning everywhere.”
