New Material


DATA:BASS began as a weekly night in Sept '02 at Shots Bar, mostly Drum'n Bass with a bit of 2-Step, Hip-Hop, Dub and Breaks thrown about. Data:bass has now released 4 compilations on both the 0474:8455 recordings label and the Mental Illness subsidiary The ranks have swelled to over 30 affiliated producers & performers.

Mental Illness >

Mental Illness is a subsidiary project of 0474:8455 Recordings, dedicated primarily to turntable / electronic / sequenced music outside of Drum'n Bass, as a repose and an outlet for DATA:BASS DJ's and affiliated producers to explore other sides of the electronic/ turntable spectrum with a real leftfield sensibility.

34 Hits

34 Hits is inspired in part from seeing The Hot Grits (an Auckland funk band) play. That straight ahead "don't my jive ass look great in these white hot pants" kind of funk jam. The tune is built around old call and response patterns. We wanted it to come in under three minutes and not to let up for a second. It's our most popular song live and if you count the number of hits, they add up to 34.
