Record Label: 8BC Recording
Releasing: Wednesday October 15th  2014
Hosting Digital Release: http://www.814basscrew.com
Album:  I Keep It Moving #IKIM

The debut album I Keep It Moving from NatasK (814 Bass Crew) is an emotional plunge into the deep world of Electronic Music taking influences from a wide variety of genres all expressed through Broken Beats, Bass, and Melodies that drive a dance floor and appeal to the every day listener. Born Joseph Louis Kodba, NatasK has some deep roots in the DJ culture spanning the last 16 years as well as being the founding member of the 814 Bass Crew. This is one of the first looks at this up and coming producers personal take on the music that has been a big part of his life and Electronic music all while trying to create new paths and sounds to broaden the previously type casted molds of individual genres. With a range of Tempos and Speeds, NatasK combines the sounds of Dubstep, Techno, Drum and Bass, Hip Hop, Trap and UK Garage to grab the listener’s attention and feel the mood and dynamic of each track. I Keep it Moving features the vocals of Lake City Fresh and Mack Boyer as well as Production features from Ghost Alive. The first official single from the Album, “Lose it All,” is a Carnival-style Dubstep song, featuring the powerful and inspirational lyrics and vocals from Lake City Fresh. It is a metaphorical rise and come up of a man growing up and discovering himself in a world seemingly hopeless at times. Choice breaks and pulsing baselines give this track a unique feel and sound. Every track has a special vibe, and the intricacies within each beat are sure you make you keep this one in your rotation. After worldwide charting success earlier in 2014 with EP single “Manowar” feat Akuma, NatasK is ready to deliver the driving energy that encompasses his live performances, and his production skills to the world stage.

When Fresh Gets Dirty. “Never Lose”

NeverLose_ART

We are getting your week started off right! Here at the BASS BLOG, we are excited for the up coming release “I keep It Moving” by NatasK, his first full length album release.   As NatasK has been digging deep into the realm of Bass, Broken Beats and a variety of tempos and Speeds, NatasK has started to find an added level in his production adding some dynamic collaborations with some amazing vocalists. One of these vocalists being LAKE CITY FRESH.  a native of Erie Pennsylvania.  Their Featured Track “Never Lose”  will surly get your attention.  With choice drums, Punchy bass, and a driving rhythm and melody that LAKE CITY FRESH is really able to articulate upon.

FRESHartBLOG

Inspired by the RnB greats like Luther Vandross, Lenny Cooke, Al B Sure, R. Kelly, Jagged Edge, Tank, and Michael Jackson,  it was apparent that Lake City Fresh was destined to write music from an early age with over 250 songs written by the young age of 13.  With the Name Lake City Fresh,  a nickname given to him by his brother for his desire to always be clean, we finally have an up close look into this vocalists come up.   After graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP)   Lake city Fresh found himself back in his home town of Erie PA, and after some hard work and exploration of sounds he released his first mixtape… “The Enlightenment”  to then be followed by now classics “More than Music” , “BayBreeze Music” and the most current Project “Presque Isle Boii.”   With a spark of a musical revolution and the forging of a new sound Fresh has been exploring multiple styles and genres, ultimately entering him into the Bass music spectrum with this Collaboration “Never Lose” with NatasK of the 814 Bass Crew, also an Erie Native.

PromoPIC1WIth the sucess of his mix tapes, Lake CityFresh Has been Artist of the Year in the Rock Erie Awards  of 2012 and 2013.  Lake City Fresh has dropped tracks with PA heavy weight BOAZ, as well as finding himself on Yo Gotti’s “Hard”.  Featured also by the likes of Un Kasa,  LCF recently opened for RnB greats H-Town.  From the west coast to the East Lake City Fresh has started to work with some of the top artists in the industry all while finding his own creative ways to excel his passion in singing.   Be on the Look out for more work from NatasK and Lake City Fresh on  NatasK’s up coming full length Album…. “I keep it Moving.”

Never Shook, New collaborations bring Good Things!

Erie PA has seen quite a change in its Underground Music scene over the last 10 years.    In the spring of 06  Producer, DJ and Founder of 814 Bass Crew“NATASK”   had found himself back in western PA, (Erie) with an opportunity, or blank canvas as there was a huge void in Electronic Music.  Right around the same time period there were also a whole new group of emerging MCs.   Both groups struggled to find an outlet, or a stage to present their talents within their Local city scape.   As time went on 814 BASS Crew was established and began hosting a variety of events featuring some of the most cutting edge DJs from around the world, all while slowly working the MC culture into these shows.   As this was all going down 2189 Skateboard shop Founder “Iggy” Imig, began a series of underground Hip Hop shows, also hosting Talent from all around the US…. as both scenes emerged, it was only natural that there would be some overlap and collaboration.  One of the current Hip Hop Acts that have been on the Up and up, hosting tracks with Veteran MCs from around the state Like BEEDIE and JOHN QUEST,  is HOLLAH HOUSE.   MACK BOYER, of the Hollah House Crew is now dropping this first Single with Producer and DJ, NATASK titled “Never Shook”.     With a choice break, Deep Bass and Sultry String arrangements,  have a Listen as Mack goes in with laments to his youth, and come up…. much like the scenes these two artists represent.

814 Music.
