I love music that’s fresh and I love artists that aren’t afraid to mix it up and come with something new. I’ve got the début album from Pennsylvania producer and bass fanatic NatasK and that’s exactly what he’s brought here. A high end production, ‘I Keep It Moving’ is a genre straddling collection of Electronic Music that encompasses the sounds and vibes of a whole spectrum of musical fashions. NatasK takes influence from House to Hip Hop, Drum & Bass and UK Garage to Dubstep and beyond and uses this combined acquired musical knowledge to superior effect.
The album opens with a touch of Eastern flair infused with Hip Hop and Electronica, a chilled tempo and a commanding big orchestral drum beat setting the track up, laced with the harmonising of vocalist Lake City Fresh. The intro setting the pace for what’s to come. As the album moves on, the rate is stepped up and the bass brought harder; really kicking the record into gear. ‘Closer’ again features vocals from Lake City Fresh as well as a colab from 814 Bass Crew associate Ghost Alive.
‘Lose It All’ again steps the album up a notch and is one of the stand out tracks of the album for me. Impeccably produced and brilliantly conceived, that Future Bass vibe standing strong, an almost tropical drum line and Lake City Fresh this time spitting fire before serenading the beat with perfectly delivered vocals. Supported by an ethereal but domineering synth chorus and a haunting piano line, the track firmly cements NatasK ability and scope as a top level producer.
We’re next hit with a Drumstep destroyer that holds the bass cannon to your head and demands you move; we’re more than happy to oblige! Toned out and grimy, the tempo rises slightly as the album leads perfectly into the dark and moody Drum & Bass track ‘The Voodoo Speaks’ and features the second colab on the album from Ghost Alive. Another exceptionally crafted track and another firm nod to the producer. ‘The Stringer’, a hyped up, syncopated explosion, pace quickened again with a touch of the classical ringing through at the half way mark of the album completes the uptempo trio.
‘Bone Shaker’ features the third and final colab from Ghost Alive and is a Junglist revivalist masterpiece. The track is a homage to a scene that is enjoying a resurgence on both sides of the Atlantic and is yet another testament to the skill of the production team. ‘Funk’ warps the mind with its barrage of punchy bass hits and minimalist twangy rhythm whilst ‘Space Hopper’s fantasy like beat takes the listeners ears to another dimension completely.The penultimate track on the album see’s NatasK bring out the big guns again with yet another highly accomplished track. The deep, tonal bass reverbing through the system as a frantic but on point beat leads the atmospheric synthesized chorus straight into your musical receptors creating a feeling of satisfaction and full on musicaly derived, bass-lined joy! The album finishes how it started, with the intro of ‘Wasted Time’ used as a backing beat for rapper Mack Boyer to unleash over.
The album is an easy listen. Not one track is a chore to listen to and the flow and course of the album walks the right path. The album fuses elements of a whole mass of different genres; Electro, Dubstep, House, Drum And Bass, UK Garage, Jungle, Hip Hop into one hugely exciting mix. Each track is a pleasurable listening experience, each equipped with its own unique elements and original charm. The mood effortlessly shifts back and forth from joyous and upbeat to dark and brooding appeasing a whole range of emotions and feeling. It’s what music should do, and it does it right! For a début album, the level of production is at a near perfect level. The album is a very worthy listen to for all our bass addicts out there and is a outstanding introduction to a music maker who is truly worthy of your support!
