We spent our formative years issuing releases of early North American Bass music, furthering binding it to the long, storied history of regional club music. While last year’s move to New York City saw us adopt refined House music as our core identity, the countless Loveless parties maintained our fervent support for experimental club & bass.
To give that a proper avenue, Loveless has announced a new sub-label called MATERIA—where all forms of regional club music can mesh and grow wild.
The first release is an apt summary of the mission statement, featuring two contrasting singles from Brooklyn producer JX Cannon. TANKED plays the heart strings of casual and obsessive Anime fans everywhere with a crushing DJ tool take on the quintessential theme to Cowboy Bebop. GAGGED, on the flip, introduces classic Gabber to the shady world of Ballroom in the most brutal means available.
On remix duty, Philly-based DISCWOMAN affiliate DJ Haram gives TANKED room to breath, cutting it down to an ambient percussive exercise with lofty amounts of negative space and distant motif abstractions. Vogue/Ballroom staple Byrell The Great deconstructed GAGGED, syphoning out the Gabber and making it a full-on Ballroom anthem of shade.
